Y4 Football away at Wetherby St Joseph’s (14/3/19) – Lost 8-0
14 March 2019
The second lot of Y4s played on Thursday as we went over to Wetherby to play St Joseph’s. Although we may not have got the result we were hoping for, at this stage it’s all about getting as much experience as possible and learning to work as a team. There were still positives to take from the match, including the children’s resilience, which will help with their progression for future games.
Y5 Football at home vs Scholes (13/3/19) – Won 3-2
13 March 2019
The Y5 team played in the league against Scholes this week as they hosted Scholes. With the match-day squad open to anyone who wanted to play we once again had many players participating, which was brilliant for a start! In what was a close match everyone got good game time and whenever we made substitutions the players coming on were just as committed as the players coming off. Not only that, we were able to finish the match with a victory; special mention to Dan who ended up with all three goals!
Y4 Football at home vs Bardsey (12/3/19) – Lost 2-1
12 March 2019
With two Y4 matches booked in for this week, we decided to split the class into halves, with one half playing in each game. The first squad hosted Bardsey, and for a team that had just been put together they played remarkably well, with all players showing great enthusiasm regardless of their experience levels. We narrowly missed out on getting the result we wanted, but to keep the score so close and competitive for the full game was a good achievement for our team!

11 March 2019
The Tag Rugby 1st team prepared for the upcoming Regional Tournament by travelling to Allerton in a friendly match. It was certainly good preparation in a close, hard fought game which definitely made our players get on their toes and compete. The team were actually 8-4 down at one point but showed great resilience and determination to come back and win 9-8!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 2nd team away at Harewood (4/3/19) – Won 6-3
4 March 2019
The girls 2nd team travelled to Harewood this week in wet and muddy conditions to play their latest fixture. On a small pitch the girls did well to find space and create chances for themselves and, even though Harewood were able to score, Shadwell managed to pull away towards the end with some great attacking play. Credit also to Amrit and Sofia, who both helped out in goal and each made some great saves!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football 1st team at home vs Scholes (28/2/19) – Won 2-1
28 February 2019
The boys got their half term underway with a home league match against Scholes this week. Having not played together for a while it took the first half for the boys to get together and play like they had done previously, conceding a goal early on. The game opened up more in the second half and the team created chances for themselves, showing resilience and composure to play their way back into the match, eventually winning 2-1.
Y5/6 Boys’ Football 2nd team at home vs Thorner (8/2/19) – Drew 2-2
8 February 2019
The boys’ football 2nd team had another game tonight as they entertained Thorner. In what was a thoroughly entertaining game with multiple chances for both teams, a draw was probably a fair result – Shadwell even managed to get a late equaliser towards the end of the game, which was reward for all their hard work! Also credit to Alina in goal, and Emily, who filled in from the girls’ 1st team and played exceptionally well!

6 February 2019
After competing at the Cross Country Regional Competition in the Autumn, those children and teams who qualified also competed in the City Finals this week against the best runners from all across Leeds. Shadwell had the Girls’ team and Oliver from Y4; the Y5 Girls’ team; and both the Boys’ and Girls’ teams from Y6 competing – the most we had ever taken! Although we didn’t get anyone qualifying for the County Finals, everyone ran to their best and we had some excellent finishes!
Y5/6 Netball match away at Highfield (5/2/19) – Won 5-2
5 February 2019
As we prepared for the league season we travelled to Highfield for a friendly match. The team consisted wholly of players who hadn’t played a Netball match before, in order to give them as much experience as possible. The team showed lots of grit and determination as well as great passing and moving as the match went on and they grew into the game. We defended well and took our chances with shooting opportunities to get a great 5-2 win!
Y5/6 Girls Football 2nd team at home vs Holy Family (4/2/19) – Lost 1-0
4 February 2019
The girls’ 2nd team played against Holy Family this week and were unlucky to lose; having conceded towards the start of the game they matched their opponents for the rest of it; having some chances of their own, but were just unable to convert them. Still there were lots of positives to take from the game as we look forward to playing more matches in the next few weeks.
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team at home vs Carr Manor CPS (30/1/19) – Won 5-2
30 January 2019
In the latest round of the cup the boys’ 1st team played Carr Manor. In an open game, with both chances and goals for both teams, it was ultimately Shadwell’s finishing which was the difference between the two teams as they were very clinical in the final third. A win in the cup is always a bonus, and the victory sees the team qualify for the next round!
