Report: On Wednesday 20th September 2017, the Under 11 football team travelled to Portsmouth Grammar School for the annual seven-a-side tournament. The competition started slowly for the boys and they suffered a one nil defeat at the hands of local rivals Princes Mead. In the next match, against Belmont Prep, both teams were evenly matched but it was Tom M who pulled off an excellent save near the end of the game to secure the team’s first point. Amesbury Prep were up next for the boys and within the opening minutes Brad K latched onto an excellent through pull to rifle home the team’s first goal of the tournament. Throughout the remaining minutes the boys defended resolutely against wave after wave of Amesbury attacks and they stood firm to record an excellent victory. In the final game against Meoncross the boys dominated from the outset and could have added more to the one goal scored by Archie C-S. The boys and Mr B had a nervous wait to see whether SHS had qualified for the quarter finals, the wait was rewarded with another local derby this time against Stroud Prep. The game was a fairly even contest throughout but again another Brad K shot proved to be the decisive strike taking the boys through to the semi-finals. This match was an excellent advert for Under 11 boy’s football as both teams battled hard and put in some physical but fair challenges. Brad K gave SHS the lead and Prebendal mounted attacks in search of an equaliser. SHS had the chance to add to their first goal but Prebendal’s goal keeper made an excellent save. With minutes to go Prebendal found the equaliser that forced the match to a penalty shootout. After three attempts the score was 3 a piece so the shootout went to sudden death. Archie C-S stepped up and scored his penalty and the Prebendal player placed his attempt wide which gave SHS victory and a place in the final. The final was a tense 10 minute affair against Ryde School, both teams had opportunities to score but neither side took their chances so the match went to a penalty shootout. With the score at 1-1 after two attempts the Ryde player struck his penalty against the cross bar. Brad K stepped up and scored his penalty which brought the trophy back to Sherborne House. The boys were a credit to the school and all nine players worked with each other in all seven matches played.

Team: William G, Tom M, Aadi R, Archie C-S, Taran M, Brad K, Aman P, George G and Kabir P

Player of the Match: Whole team as they all worked with each other in all of the games played and the boys just got better and better as the tournament progressed.

Team: William G, Tom M, Aadi R, Archie C-S, Taran M, Brad K and George G

Report: The boys came so close to picking up a second trophy in less than a week but the goal difference rule meant the boys ended up in the third place playoff game instead of the final. In the final group match the boys knew they needed to score at least four goals against Ryde to tie with Churchers. Throughout the eight minute match the boys constantly attacked but were thwarted by superb defending and goalkeeping which in the end denied the boys that all important fourth goal.

Player of the Match: Thomas M was voted as Goalkeeper of the tournament as voted by all of the other coaches.

Ditcham Park U10/11 C

Report: After our scenic journey to Ditcham Park the boys were keen to get off the coach and play some football. Being a C team fixture, we were able to get a few new faces on the park for a run out. From the off, the boys were a keen as mustard to get stuck in. Unfortunately, this resulted in a little bit of team ball chasing. The opposition picked up on this and scored a couple of goals in quick succession. Following a rapid regroup, and a reminder about shape and marking, they were back on form. The rest of the game was far more balanced, with Ditcham having to fight hard to get there 3rd goal at the tail end of the game. The boys are developing their skills and understanding all the time. Special mention should go to the goal keeper (Seb), and Findlay for their sterling defensive efforts.

Team: Alex U, George U, Tom, Finlay, Manraj, Oscar Arjan, Alex R, Seb, Kishan, Ethan.

Player of the Match: Seb G.

Portsmouth Grammar School

Report: The U10 Boys were superb this week and showed real character. Even though they haven’t played very many games with each other, all the boys were incredibly supportive towards each other when things went could have worked out better – Which wasn’t very often! Some of their individual skills were jaw dropping and often left me (Mr Purvis) stunned which isn’t helpful when you’re trying to ref the game and stay impartial! A positive start to the year and a solid platform to build on!

Team: Edward I, William G, Edward C, Joe S, Alfie B, Arthur M, Arun P, Blake E, Henry M and Olly P.
