On the 1st of October, the girls football team competed in their first tournament of the year at The Discovery Academy. The girls came across some tough competition but showed great determination and skill to complete the tournament without conceding a goal.

Year 5/6 Mixed Football - Match Report

On Wednesday 7th November the mixed football team competed in the first round of the Staffordshire Schools FA cup competition versus Werrington.

The game kicked off and the Meadows found themselves a goal down within 30 seconds as they were still tired from the mammoth journey to Werrington's school. The team shortly awoke from their slumber and began to attack the Werrington goal constantly,  the pressure told as we scored a goal shortly before half time to make the scores even.

In the second half the team left off as they ended the first half with some fantastic attacking play and stern defending resulting in the Meadows scoring 2 more goals and winning the game 3-1.

Communication, commitment and teamwork were key to the success! Well done boys and girls!

The Willows vs The Meadows

4 -  8

A very cold afternoon saw The Meadows travel to The Willows for a fantastic and hard-fought cup game.

It didn’t start as planned for The Meadows as they were 2 – 0 down in the first five minutes as The Willows made a lively start. Events started to change however, as The Meadows familiarised themselves with the muddy pitch. The girls quickly equalled their score as it reached 2 – 2 and began to look more dominant. It was a hard – fought battle by both teams, with none intent on giving up. Early into the second half The Willows looked to be making a comeback as they levelled the score at 4-4. Despite this The Meadows were able to push on and with teamwork, hard work and a scored penalty, they were able to win the game and progress to the next round, 4 – 8.

Well done to everyone that played!

Year 5/6 Mixed Football - Match Report

On Thursday 22nd November the football team continued their rich vein of form with another set of victories, this time against a high quality Gladstone team.

The first game was a hard fought 2-0 victory with both goals coming from Harry. The team started the second half quickly and were rewarded with an early goal a fantastic header from a corner by Harry again. The team were 3-0 up in the middle of the second game with further goals from Harry and Ben and some impressive attacking play threatening the Gladstone goal further. Gladstone never gave up and fought hard but the Meadows were just too strong and held out for a 4-2 victory. 

Another fantastic result means the team remain unbeaten, well done!

On Thursday evening, The Meadows went to the Crescent Academy in the second round of the Staffs Schools FA Primary Schools Cup.

The team began the game in excellent fashion and a flowing team move ended with Harry opening the scoring at 1-0. Soon after a fantastic cross from Ben and a deft finish, again from Harry, meant the team were 2-0 up within 10 minutes. Ben extended the lead with a fine goal meaning the team led 3-0 at half time.

The team knew the second half would be more of a challenge and some excellent defending and determination resulted in the meadows leaving with a 4-1 victory, 100% record and a place in the next round of the competition.

A fantastic effort from the squad (and supporters) they have done us proud again!
