On Thursday 6th December the year 7 girls’ team had their first indoor 5-aside football match against Frances Bardsley and Hornchurch High.

We played our first match against Frances Bardsley which was an intense game. Frances Bardsley passed the ball well meaning that we had to make lots of tackles and blocks with Ines making some great saves in goal! We drew 0-0.

In  our second game we dominated more of the play with the girls making more passes and having more shots on target. Both Tilly and Jamie had some near misses, until the last two minutes of the game where Jamie managed to score twice with the end result being 2-0 to Abbs Cross!

Year 9 Sports Leaders

On Wednesday 28th November six year 9 students were selected to become sports leaders at the Havering Primary School Sports Hall Athletics competition at Hornchurch Sports Centre. They had attended sports leaders training session several weeks before the event. The sports leaders were: Nikolay Yordanov, Thomas Hanson, Megan Hardy, Orianne Dacres, Alicja Goscik and Harrison Jacobs. They had a fantastic day and Megan Hardy has written a piece about how they used their sports leadership skills!

“Prior to this event we had to attend a training session, where we learnt what was necessary to become a good leader.  At the competition we each had an event that we had to run along with 5 other academy schools, each academy school had 6 pupils representing their sports leaders from year 9. There were over 10 events, an example was the vertical jump, which I had to organise. There was also the long jump, relay races, triple jump and javelin. We all enjoyed our day and our aim was to make the year 6 students feel confident during the events that they took part in . The experience was eye opening and gave us an idea of what being a good sports leader was like. At the end of the day we received a leadership academy badge!” – Megan, Year 9

Girls U16 Football 7 – a-side – Havering Champions!

On Monday  23rd April the U16 7 aside team took on Frances Bardsley school in the finals of the Havering 7-a-side tournament. The girls won the trophy last year and so were keen to defend their title as Havering 7-aside champions!  In order to reach the final they had previously played in two rounds, one in December where they won 4-1 against Redden Court B, won 1-0 against Hall Mead, won 2-0 against Frances Bardsley and won 2-0 against Redden Court. The other in March where they put in another strong performance drawing 1-1 with Hall Mead and winning their other games 4-0 against Bower Park, 1-0 against Redden Court and 1-0 against Frances Bardsley. The squad for the final involved Poppy, Molly, Gracie, Jade, Annie (Y11s) Jessica and Taylor (Y10s).  We made a positive start, scoring early on to make the score 1-0, however Frances Bardsley did not give up and came back to put the game on an even level at 1-1. However the Abbs Cross girls were determined and their high level of skill and tactical awareness allowed them to outwit the Frances Bardsley defence and score a further two goals, making the final score 3-1! Goals came from Molly and Poppy!  Congratulations to all the girls – they were well-deserved winners and retain the trophy two years in a row!
