Y5/6 Tag Rugby Regionals at Allerton High School – Winners! (26/3/19)
26 March 2019
As a busy week of sport got underway, we took 6 teams to Tag Rugby regionals this week; a record number of teams for any school! It was a brilliant day and everyone played to their best and represented the school brilliantly! We even managed to get a team through to the Leeds City Finals in May, which is a great achievement in itself, but to have so many children playing sport and enjoying themselves is another fantastic achievement!

The squad got their league season underway as they travelled to Deighton Gates on Monday. Always a good team, Deighton provided a tough match up with the scores remaining close throughout the first half. We were able to put together some great passing and moving in the third quarter which gave us a lead to hold onto in the fourth, eventually winning 7-4 – a great start to the season!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at the North of England Finals! (21/3/19)
21 March 2019
In what was their biggest achievement to date, the girls’ football team travelled all the way down to Sheffield to represent the school, the city, and the county at the North of England Football Finals! With 11 teams competing, each a winner of their own county competition, the standard was always going to be high. Never ones to shrink from a challenge, the girls took it head on and gave everyone they played a tough game, getting some great wins and were genuinely unlucky in other games. The team that eventually won, from Durham, won all their games, except for the one when they played us – a 1-1 draw, which should show how competitive we were. The girls are a fantastic team full of great players and fully deserved to be a part of such a special occasion!

The boys continued their league campaign today as they travelled to Swarcliffe. With the end of the season drawing near, the boys are preparing themselves for tough games in the upcoming weeks. They got off to a great start today, and were able to apply pressure early on eventually leading 5-0 at half time. Despite conceding early on in the second half, the game really opened up from that point on and the boys were able to extend their lead, winning 12-1.

Y5/6 Girls’ Football 1st team at home vs Horsforth Newlaithes (15/3/19) – Won 2-1
15 March 2019
Preparation has begun for the girls’ big North of England tournament next week as they played some tough games leading up to it, starting with Horsforth. There’s usually a breeze on our home field, but today’s game was something else, with a really strong wind affecting how both teams would like to play. Sukhmann was able to give Shadwell the lead in the first half, but Horsforth equalised in the second. With time running down an incredible shot from Hetty, from the half way line, found the back of the net to give Shadwell the win! A brilliant end to a hard-fought game!

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!
Y5/6 Tag Rugby 1st team away vs Allerton (11/3/19) – Won 9-8
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!

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.
