Through their commitment in training the Year 7 Rugby Squad were able to field 2 full teams of 12 in a recent Central Ventue Event at Bishop Fox’s.
The teams played against the other schools in the area and showed bags of enthusiasum and commitment. Both teams should be proud of what they have achieved. For many of the students this was their first experience of playing competivtive rugby. Definitely some boys to watch out for in the future.
In their first match of the academic year, Court Fields School under 16’s came away with an emphatic 52-0 victory over Preston School (Yeovil). Noticeable performances from Finley Pocock with 5 tries and Jai-Leigh Sears who was outstanding in defence.

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.
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!!!

Tom Trowbridge shot a 9 over gross 81 in awful conditions of the back tees at Trentham NR Stoke on Trent. In a small field of elite golfers on the UK Junior Golf Tom started well with two pars but quickly fell behind with two quick doubles. The rain and wind made everything more difficult and Tom struggled early on and was 8 over par after 8 and 4 shots behind the leader. A much needed birdie on 9 changed the round as Tom started to adapt better to the conditions. He played steadily until he dropped shots on 13 and 14, and as he teed up on 15, a 190 par 3 he needed something special to keep his dreams alive. A career 3 rescue to 2 feet led to a birdie and two shot swing with the other leaders who both bogeyed. Tom finished with 3 solid pars to win narrowly by a single shot and book his place in the http://www.jakartaworldjuniorgolf.com.
This 72 hole competition is especially exciting as it is in Jakarta, Indonesia and is an all expenses paid trip of a life time. Played on one of the top championship courses, 5 star accommodation and local caddies are provided. Tom is especially pleased as the competition runs from 4-7 June and gets him an extra week off school with the kind support of Court Fields Community School.
