Southborough (Blue) 1 – Langton Green 2

Well done to all the pupils that took part in the Blues Football match on Wednesday against Langton Green. The team played exceptionally well in their first match of the season as a team.  The game started at a terrific pace with Langton Green moving the ball extremely well scoring the opening goal within the first minute of the game. Southborough quickly responded with some brilliant passing from Charlie, Coby and Henry that resulted in a goal by Harry just a few minutes later. George in goal showed some excellent agility, making some brilliant saves under pressure. Max moved the ball well in midfield with narrow misses from Frankie, Oscar and Jenson. In the end it was a deflection that saw Langton Green score their second in the closing minutes and despite some great movement at the end of the game we were unable to claw back the one goal deficit.

The team were: Frankie, Jenson, George, Henry, Max, Harry, Oscar, Coby and Charlie.

Southborough Girls 3 v St Augustine's Girls 1 


Well done to the Southborough Girls team who won their first Football game of the season against St Augustine's. Both teams were incredible and tried their hardest but Southborough managed to win 3-1.  All the pupils played really well and knew what they had to do, whether it was either defence, tackling, setting up goals or scoring goals, all the pupils pitched in. Even though we won, credit must be given to a resilient St Augustine's team. They were a talented team with good control of the ball and great passing. Our incredible goalie Emilia only let one goal passed and it was a thunder shot. If it wasn’t for Emilia it would have been much closer.  Even though we were all very competitive and wanted to win, we had so much fun and really enjoyed the afternoon.




The team: Emilia, Georgia, Elsie Beth, Bella, Lelia, Izzy, Bongani 

Southborough (Blue) 2 St Johns 3

Well done to all the blue football team that played an incredible game of football against a very strong St Johns team last week. The team played with fantastic commitment from the start scoring early on when Charlie was given a through ball which he struck brilliantly to put in the back of the net. St Johns replied quickly with a goal of their own before George in goal made a couple of brilliant saves to keep the score at 1-1 at half time. In the second half Frankie made a strong run down the left wing thundering the ball passed the keeper to make the score 2-1. St Johns again replied with a quick goal despite some excellent defending from Max to make it 2-2. In the final seconds of the game, St Johns managed to score the winning goal. A great performance by the team in muddy conditions. Well done everyone!

Team: Max, Harry, Oscar, Charley, Coby, Jensen, Henry, Frankie, George
