Yr7 Football

Tuesday 13th January saw Court Fields take on Kingsmead in the first round of the district cup. This was always going to be an interesting game as it would be both teams first experience of playing 11-a-side. The first half was used by both teams to find their feet and attempt to use the greater space provided by the bigger pitch. Kingsmead started the stronger and were certainly the more dominant side in terms of possession and chances. However, a strong defence and quick counter attack was the Court Fields tactic which served them well. Both sides turned round with 1 goal each. Harry Sloman being the scorer for Court Fields. The second half was much the same in terms of how the game was played. A few key changes at half time saw Court Fields take the game on a bit more and a superbly struck left foot from Riley Sellick put Court Fields in front. Despite a final surge from Kingsmead the net remained elusive for them and the score remained 2-1 to Court Fields.

Year 10 Football

On Tuesday 25th March, Court Fields year 10 students played host to their inaugural fixture against Wellington School. A much anticipated local derby had Court Fields players chomping at the bit to get the game started. Wellington school started brightly and quickly settled into the game with some slick passing. Good defence kept them out and allowed Court Fields to counter on several occasions. Myles opened the account 15 mins into play with a ground shot that passed swiftly under the keeper. Shortly after the ref judged that a Court Fields player had been pushed in the area and promptly pointed at the spot. Tom smashed the ball into the net giving the keeper no chance of a save.

The second half was more of an even affair with Wellington school coming close on several occasions. A final flourish from Court Fields saw Kieran find the net to round off a deserved 3-0 victory. This was a great fixture and one that both parties felt should remain in the calendar.


Year 9/10 Girls Football

Court Fields 1 – 0 Kings College

Court Fields welcomed a very talented Kings College side. Both teams played some really neat football, creating numerous chances. Court Fields School players Gould and Hollick, resumed normal duty, winning the central midfield battle as per usual. Great defensive performances from Currie, Salter, McCabe and the ever-reliable Buttle reduced Kings to minimal shots on goal, and even when they did, Mitchell was certainly more than equal to it. It was particularly down the wings that Court Fields cause Kings most problems through the engines of Nutkins, Sears, Roncaglia and Channon. The goal finally came through the prolific Grabham with 5 minutes remaining, cutting in from the right hand side to slot home with a clinical finish, giving Court Fields a well deserved win. The girls must now take this performance and take it into next week’s game away at Taunton Academy. Superb work girls!!!
