Y5/6 Girls Football 1st team at home vs Meanwood (2/10/18) – Won 2-1
2 October 2018
The second match against Meanwood was quite soon after the first as the girls hosted them on the school field this week. In awkward conditions the team played exceptionally well and were able to take the lead through Megan’s goal. Even though Meanwood equalised in the second half the girls didn’t panic and were rewarded when Sukhmann’s strike towards the end of the game sealed the win!
Y5/6 Girls Football 2nd team at home vs Alwoodley (1/10/18) – Lost 3-0
1 October 2018
The girls’ 2nd team had their second game this week as they hosted Alwoodley. Despite losing, the game was more about the performance as well as the girls continuing to grow as a team. There was lots of energy and enthusiasm, and everything which needed to be improved upon will come purely through just playing more games.

Shadwell Girls Football 1st team at home vs Immaculate Heart (27/9/18) – Won 3-0
27 September 2018
The girls played their second game in a week as they hosted Immaculate Heart on the field. The opposition, who were a good team, posed lots of problems for the girls to deal with, but we did really well, especially Alina in goal who made a great save when the score was only 1-0! Shadwell’s first game from a run from Emily down the right, whose cross was controlled brilliantly by Megan, who finished back across the keeper. The score at halftime stayed 1-0 but was increased in the second half when Megan doubled her tally. Megan then went onto complete her hat-trick when she followed in Abi’s shot which had hit the post! Another great victory for the team in what’s been a great start to the season!
Shadwell Boys Football 1st team away vs Grimes Dyke (26/9/18) – Won 1-0
26 September 2018
The boys 1st team began their league campaign on Wednesday as they travelled to Grimes Dyke. With the majority of the team being new to school football, it was sure to be an interesting game as to how the boys would gel together. In what turned out to be an end-to-end, scrappy game, the two teams were eventually only separated by a great strike from Max A, curling his effort into the top corner in the first half. The team showed lots of great character for their first game as they battled through difficult opposition to get the win! Well done to all, including debut keeper Harry who made a couple of brilliant saves towards the end!
Shadwell Girls Football 1st team away vs Meanwood (24/9/18) – Won 5-1
24 September 2018
It was the turn of the girls 1st team to begin their season this week as they travelled to Meanwood in the league. Having five players remaining from last year’s team gives the girls an excellent base, with quality added around them. Despite this, it will always take time to settle in, and the team went 1-0 down early on. Still, they never let that worry them and kept playing their own way; new captain Emily got the first goal of the season when she volleyed in Megan’s corner. Debutant Hetty gave Shadwell the lead at the end of the first half when her shot snuck in at the near post. At the break the score remained 2-1 Shadwell. The girls increased their lead early on in the 2nd half through goals from Megan and Sukhmann, before Megan got Shadwell’s fifth on a great breakaway towards the end after a great block from Isla in defence. A great way to start the new season, showing lots of resilience after trailing at the beginning!
Shadwell Boys 2nd team at home vs Bramham (19/9/18) – Drew 2-2
19 September 2018
The boys 2nd team had their first game of the year on Wednesday when they too hosted Bramham Primary. The team got off to a great start when a brilliant run and finish from Jacob made the score 1-0 TO Shadwell. Going into the wind in the first half made it tricky to defend, and the equaliser came when a cleared corner was played back into the penalty area and an unlucky deflection saw it turned into the net. Shadwell retook the lead just before half time when a ball was played passed the Bramham keeper and Jacob tapped in his, and Shadwell’s second of the game. The team had to withstand a lot of Bramham pressure in the second half and the second equaliser came when a run through the middle ended with a neat Bramham finish. The score remained 2-2, a great draw in a first match with some excellent teamwork and individual skills on show.
Shadwell Girls Football 2nd team at home vs Bramham (18/9/18) – Lost 3-1
18 September 2018
The 2nd team had their first game of the year when they hosted Bramham Primary this Tuesday. The team played exceptionally well, especially as it was some children’s first game for school. In tricky, blustery conditions the girls kept battling away and despite going 1-0, were able to put some excellent pressure onto the Bramham goal. They were very unlucky to concede a second from their own corner, as a quick Bramham break away made it 2-0. Still, the team were able to pull a goal back in the second half and there were lots of positives to build upon for the games going forward!

15 July 2018
Our Girls Football team are officially the best in the whole of Leeds! After qualifying for the City Finals as a result of a tough league season, the team went to Priesthorpe High School to contest the championship. In the semi-final we played St Paul's, managing to take the lead through Jess' goal. Even though St Paul's equalised we held firm over extra time and the game eventually went to penalties. Emily and Sukhmann were very brave and scored theirs, whilst Gopika made some brilliant saves and stopped St Paul's, and we were through to the final! In the final we played Holy Family, a team who had scored 178 goals in the league this season! We played our best football of the season, with Jess managing to score right before half time. Holy Family piled on the pressure in the second half but the team consistently put in committed tackles, with Gopika making more fantastic saves! With Megan scoring the goal of the season on the break, beating two players and powering the ball into the goal, sealed the final 2-0 result and provided a great end to a great season - What an incredible achievement!

Our Boys' Football team had an incredible season and managed to win the league! We gave everything all season and everyone's effort counted as we won the title for the second straight season! By winning our league we qualified for a knockout tournament against the winners of other leagues. After 5 minutes of our first round game against Woodlesford we were 2-0 down. Despite being in a losing position, we kept battling away and got back into it with two quick goals in the second half, we then scored another to win it 3-2 in extra time! Although we lost in the quarterfinals, we were still one of the best 8 teams in the whole of Leeds, out of 80 schools! We were also two games away from representing the whole of Leeds at the County Finals, which is great achievement!

Y6 Tag Rugby teams 2017-18 - The best Tag Rugby team in the whole of Leeds!
15 July 2018
We officially have the best Tag Rugby team in the whole of Leeds! We also took three Y6 teams to a Tag Rugby regional tournament, which was a great experience and it was brilliant to see so many children representing the school brilliantly! One team won all their games at Regionals and qualified for the City Finals. At the finals they won all our group games, and also the quarter final and the semi final. We managed to get all the way to the final against Lower Wortley, who had won it the previous two years. There were no tries in the final, but lots of amazing tagging. It went all the way to extra time, and next try wins. Lower Wortley even started with the ball again, so we had to stop them before we had a chance to attack ourselves. Alfie managed to break through to score the try which made us the best team in the whole of Leeds, but we wouldn’t have gotten anywhere near that point without everyone giving everything they had throughout the tournament, and especially in the final! By winning the city title we also qualified to represent the whole of Leeds at the County Finals. It was a really tough format but we only lost one game; we showed great resilience and we have won 16 out of our 17 games we played this year which is amazing! The Y6 team’s results were: Group Stage: Won 4-1 vs Churwell Won 6-0 vs Tranmere Park Won 5-4 vs Holy Family Won 3-2 vs Talbot Quarter Finals: Won 5-3 vs Woodlesford Semi-finals: Won 3-1 vs Holy Trinity Final: Won 1-0 vs Lower Wortley
