Y5/6 Leeds Girls Football City Finals at Cardinal Heenan (24/5/19) – 3rd place
24 May 2019
With the seasons almost over, the girls finished the half term competing at the Leeds City Finals. With the top 4 teams in the city there, it was always going to be difficult but the team played their best football in the first game against Highfield; applying lots of pressure and creating chances. Despite this, the game remained 0-0 all the way through extra time and went to penalties. The girls were very brave to step up on take their penalties, and even got them all on target. We were unfortunate to miss out, and Alina even made a great save to keep us in it at one stage. It was obviously difficult for the girls to take after such a great season, but they showed so many of the personal qualities which made them the great team they are to pick themselves up to win the 3rd place play off against Holy Family. It’s been an incredible season for the girls who have won games in the league, City Finals, County Finals and North of England Finals this year, and had a great time doing so!

16 May 2019
The girls played their second match with just themselves this week as they hosted an IHOM team mixed with some Y5 players in. This was again a great experience as if the team are hoping to play football next year they will need to be able to compete against older children. Compete they did, their enthusiasm never went and although they lost the game, right now it is about getting the experience needed and learn for the future!
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team at home vs Primrose Lane (10/5/19) – 2-2 AET Won 3-2 on penalties
10 May 2019
With their second huge game in two days, the boys played Primrose Lane in the first knockout round of the Champions Play-offs; the competition where league winners play each other for a place in the next round. No doubt these games were going to be tougher, and this one proved to be the most difficult yet. The boys picked themselves up from their cup final defeat yesterday and were able to take the lead in the first half, only for Primrose to equalise in the second. Despite regaining the lead, Primrose again equalised with the last kick of the game from a corner to take the match to extra time. The game became less open throughout the extra period and went all the way to penalties. Both teams missed chances, resulting in sudden death. A big save from Harry in goal, and a powerful strike from Tom meant that Shadwell held their nerve to qualify for the quarter finals and will play the winners of Moor Allerton High School vs Woodlesford! Credit to Primrose Lane for a great game which could have gone either way in the end!
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team – Leeds Cup Final vs Holy Family (9/5/19) – Lost 2-0
9 May 2019
In a big couple of days for the boys’ football team, they started with a trip to Garforth Town Stadium for the final of the Leeds Cup against Holy Family Primary School. This was our first ever appearance in this final and the team were excited to play in an actual stadium! Both teams had chances in the first half, and again in slippery, tricky conditions the ball was difficult to control. With the added occasion of being in a final the boys did well to manage their emotions and hold their nerve. They didn’t let it get them down when a Holy Family strike skidded in off the post and came out in the second have with all the energy and focus they’d shown all season. Despite conceding a second, and eventually losing the game, the boys played well. A shot just wouldn’t fall in our favour; we created chances through brilliant build up play, but it clearly just wasn’t going to be our day. Credit to Holy Family, who also played well and had some excellent attacking players. Still, the team couldn’t have given any more, and can be proud of how far they got to get to a great final!
Y4 Boys Football match at home vs Bramham (7/5/19) – Won 4-2
7 May 2019
Tonight was the first match of the season for just the Y4 boys as they look to get experience playing for school and prepare for more competitive sport in Y5 & Y6. The game was a great match to be a part of, and Bramham took the lead early on! Shadwell equalised and then took the lead before half time. The score was extended early in the second half, only for Bramham to pull one back before the end! A thoroughly entertaining game and a great first experience for a lot of the boys!
Y5/6 Netball match at home vs Alwoodley (2/5/19) – Won 11-1
2 May 2019
As the Netball league season began to draw to a close, the squad hosted Alwoodley knowing a win would put them in a great position to win the league. Despite finishing the first quarter 1-0 down, it only seemed to fire the team up and they went onto win the next three quarters with their usually excellent passing and moving and great long range shooting!
Y5 Football match at home vs Roundhay (29/4/19) – Won 2-0 & Drew 1-1
29 April 2019
As the football league deadline loomed, the Y5 class team played a couple of matches. With the squad open to anyone in the class we were able to field two separate teams in each game, both with positive results against a strong Roundhay team who themselves were top of the league. The effort and energy was their from all and we look forward to furthering our skills next season!
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team away at Westwood (26/4/19) – Drew 0-0/Won 4-3 on pens
26 April 2019
The boys team played their second game in two days this week, and it was a big one! The made the 40 minute trip down to South Leeds to play Westwood in the semi-final of the Leeds Cup. The team got off to a fast start again and forced Westwood to make a couple of goal line clearances. The game levelled out and was mostly played in the midfield, with both teams working hard to break the deadlock. The opening goal never came, which forced the game into extra-time. Even with the extra period a goal still couldn’t be found so the match went to penalties. Shadwell took first, and with both teams scoring and missing, it went to sudden death, with our brilliant boys coming out on top to stake a place in the final against Holy Family! A really difficult match full of tension, but the team did very well to hold their nerve, and was a great experience for the future!
