A wonderful Spring Term of Sport

A wonderful Spring Term of Sport

The Spring Term is always an exciting one for Sport, with many opportunities for pupils to test themselves in the National, Regional and Weston Green run tournaments. Weston Green are often one of the smaller schools in terms of numbers, but certainly not in performance. In boxing terms, we are a very good pound for pound fighter!

The Year 2 boys got their first taste of competitive sport with the Weston Green Football Festival held on the school astro. This is always a loud and exciting event with many parents and children coming along to watch. A late pull out allowed Weston Green to field a B team for the first time, meaning every Year 2 boy was able to participate. The B team showed a huge amount of heart and loved being involved. The A team were excellent and managed to qualify for the final with a 3-1 win in their final group game. A pulsating final was witnessed by Sky Sports commentator, Martin Tyler, who described the match as “more exciting than his last commentary game - Man United v Arsenal!” A thrilling game went to extra time but never came to a winning conclusion, so the trophy was shared between Weston Green and The Orchard. We were also treated to a return from Weston Green legend and now hugely successful Manager of Woking FC, Mr. Dowson.

The Year 6 girls traveled to Lingfield Notre Dame for the hugely competitive U11 Girls London South Tournament. Weston Green had never won a game at this event before, but that was about to change, with many of the all-girl schools having 30/40 girls to pick from. Despite some close matches in the morning the girls narrowly missed out on qualifying for the afternoon finals by one point. The girls swept all in front of them in the afternoon, which included a Weston Green record-breaking 7-0 victory. Huge congratulations to the girls who put down a new marker for all future years to match and achieve. This group has really lifted the standard of Netball at the school.

The U11 boys made their annual trip to Lee Valley Stadium (the Olympic 2012 venue) for the ISA National U11 Boys Hockey Tournament. The boys were placed in a tough group with the eventual winners and missed qualification for the cup competition. This meant they entered the plate competition. The boys demonstrated how close they came in the morning by sweeping all aside and winning the plate competition. This is a national event with schools coming from across the country, so this was a huge achievement. Had the boys had an easier group draw then who knows what might have been? It is always nice to bring home a trophy, so the boys should be very proud of themselves.

The U11 girls Hockey team participated in the annual Weston Green tournament at Old Cranleighan’s Hockey Club. Eight teams participated with four schools from the Bellevue group and three others from around the South East region. The morning consisted of the group stage, with Weston Green finishing second in their group. This meant qualification for the semi-final, playing the winner of group B. After an exciting game against Skippers Hill, the game needed to be decided by push penalties. Skippers Hill scored all their penalties and qualified for the final, with Weston Green going through to the 3rd and 4th place playoff. A victory in their final game meant a 3rd place finish and an excellent final record of played seven, won four, drawn two and lost one. The girls were excellent and a credit to the school, including the three girls who didn’t make the team but acted as hosts to all the visiting pupils and staff. 

All of these events working alongside the ongoing fixtures have really demonstrated that Weston Green pupils are developing a great attitude to sport and that they understand how to represent the school with great manners and style. Well done to all the children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 for working so hard at their sport.

Mr. Harrison (Sports Co-ordinator)
