All students at Court Fields School have been involved with fundraising for the people of Madagascar over the past few years. Over this time students and staff have raised over £5,000! This money has been spent on different water projects in Madagascar. Last year we supplied a village with their own water supply which now provides water for in the region of 500 people. Before this villagers had to walk many miles in order to collect water.
We decided that it would be a fantastic opportunity to take a group of students to Madagascar and actually help with one of the projects on the island. Eight students are now working hard at fundraising in order to finance the trip, which will happen in the summer of 2016. As each student has to raise £3,750 this is by no means a simple task as you can imagine.
All support is greatly appreciated!
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!!!
