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!

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!

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!

29 April 2019
As the football league deadline loomed, the Y5 class team played a couple of matches.

The effort and energy was their from all and we look forward to furthering our skills next season!

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!

25 April 2019
The boys played their final league game of the season as they hosted St Theresa’s. With every game they play from now on being a difficult one, this was the perfect way to end the league, as St Theresa’s have always been difficult opponents. In their second close game of the season, Shadwell were just able to edge it; both teams had chances, and just like their previous game the match swung on a couple of key moments; with both goals being scored in the first four minutes.

24 April 2019
Having played a few mixed football matches this season, as part of broadening their experience we played a girls only match, further preparing the children for the type of football they’ll be playing next season. A great goal early on ended up sealing the result, but credit to Bramham, who were also playing their first girls’ game as they also worked hard and even hit the post on a couple of occasions!

The Year 4 football team continued their run of fixtures as the hosted Meanwood this week. As had been the trend this year, half the class were playing, with the other half having played their game previously.

They showed all the characteristics you would want and, as young players, will only get better as they receive more experience!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team away at Highfield (29/3/19) – Won 2-0
29 March 2019
To finish off what has been a phenomenal half term of sport the girls’ football 1st team travelled to 3rd place Highfield. After such a lot of sport in the last few weeks it was no wonder the girls got off to a fairly slow start by their standards; Alina was required to make a couple of great saves early on. As the half progressed the girls grew into the game, eventually making the breakthrough when Isla tapped in Megan’s cross to make it 1-0. The team battled hard for every challenge throughout the 2nd half showing great determination, and after some great work from Lucy down the left, Sukhmann powered in a shot passed the keeper. The final score remained 2-0 and the girls should be proud of using any energy they had left to get a great win!
Y5/6 Netball at home vs Carr Manor (28/3/19) – Won 10-1
28 March 2019
A great performance from the team in their second match this week, especially as there was some squad rotation in an attempt to give everyone some game time. Shadwell were even 1-0 down after the first quarter, but some excellent attacking play from Abigail and Emelia in the 2nd got the ball rolling and the team never looked back to make it two wins out of two!
Y5/6 Boys Football 1st team at home vs Grimes Dyke (27/3/19) – Cup quarter final – Won 2-0
27 March 2019
As the half term drew to a close, the boys hosted Grimes Dyke as both teams tried to book a place in the Leeds Cup semi final. After a close game earlier in the season, this game followed suit as the ball was mainly held in the middle of the pitch. Indeed, the score at halftime remained locked at 0-0. The second half was just as close but Shadwell were able to take the lead when Gabriel was able to capitalise on a defensive ricochet to fire home. As the game drew to a close, Gabriel was once again able to score to extend Shadwell’s lead. A great victory in a close game meant Shadwell progress to the semi-finals; a brilliant achievement!
