School Football Team
On Thursday 5th May, our keen football team hosted their first match, against neighbouring St Patrick’s, as part of their preparations for their upcoming European tournament. By the end of the first half, it was neck and neck at 0:0 however into the second half, the St. Patrick’s attack sprung into action and they quickly scored an opening goal. Despite Henley scoring from the penalty spot, Moat House were unable to pull it back and so the final score was 1:5. Well done to Bianca who was awarded the player of the match, for her heroic defending.
On Thursday 29th April, a group of Year 4 and 5 boys and girls took part in a football trial. All of the children were successful and have been invited to take part in the weekly after school football training, with a view to the school being able to take part in competitive matches with other schools, in September. Mr Gilmour and Mr McIlroy are looking forward to working with the children and who knows if we will discover the next Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford or Lucy Bronze amongst our keen and enthusiastic footballers! There are still a few places remaining if anyone else is interested in joining – please see Mr Gilmour for more information. Training will take place every Thursday after school, until 4:20pm and it is important that children bring an appropriate kit, which needs to include football boots/trainers and especially shin pads.
