Year 5&6 Football Match Holy Trinity v Southdale

With the crowd gathering outside the main gate and the grass growing up to your ankles it was always going to be an exciting game of football. Both teams showed promise right from the kick off with attacking combination. Holy Trinity were the first on the score with a well taken strike which opened the flood gates for three more and with half looming Southdale eventually put together a lovely passing combination to blast the ball into the net. The second half started similar to the first with both team put a number of attacks together but it an Holy Trinity who finished the strongest adding three more goals to their total. Southdale never gave up and came close on a number of occasions. Final score Holy Trinity 7 Southdale 1. For more great photos click on the link Holy Trinity v Southdale

Year 3 Benchball @ Crofton Academy

None stop action in tonight Year 1&2 Benchball competition at Lee Brigg Infant School. Teams from Crofton Infants, Normanton Common, Walton, Cherry Tree Lane, Mill Dam and Lee Brigg throw, caught and moved into space throughout this exciting encounter. The competition was close and had to go down to a final round of games to decide the overall winner. Final positions were joint 5th Walton and Mill Dam, 4th Lee Brigg, 3rd Normanton, 2nd Cherry Tree and 1st Crofton Infant. Thanks to everyone involved including the young sports leaders from Normanton Common. More action photos at Year 1&2 Benchball @ Lee Brigg

A fantastic evening of throwing, catching and moving into spaces with our teams from Shay Lane, Crofton Juniors and Walton. Although it took a few teams a game to get into it all of a sudden it just took off with players demonstrating some amazing awareness of space. In a number of games it was a close affair with teams defending and attaching well but in the end it was Crofton Juniors who showed their passing skills to create a number of shooting opportunities to take the trophy home. Well done to everybody involved including our young sports leaders from Crofton Academy. More great photos at Year 3 Benchball @ Crofton Academy

Tournaments and Competitions
Competition is always at the forefront for what we do at Wakefield School Sports Network. If it is an end of session game, a final lesson in a scheme of work, an intra-school house competition or a inter-school football match we feel that providing the right atmosphere for competition is important. There is always a place for playing your best players but equally sport must be for all and mixed and fun tournaments play an active part in our competition framework.
