We played 3 matches against some strong opposition. However, we didn’t let this deter us. We showed amazing teamwork and character, battling to 1 win, 1 draw and 1 defeat. Overall, we managed to come 3rd place! We are so proud of their achievements! Well done girls!

Hartley Cup Match Report


The football team were drawn away at St Johns for the Hartley Cup game. The boys got off to a flying start dominating the first half and went into the break 1-0 up with a goal from Finnley. The second half St Johns came back into the game and turned it on its head with two quick fire goals putting them into the lead with the time ticking away. It looked as though the game was going to finish at 2-1 but the boys dug deep and Alfie smashed the ball in the bottom corner equalising for the folders taking it to a penalty shootout the settle the game. The stakes were high and so was the pressure but unfortunately our boys lost on penalties. A great effort and great work from the team and plenty more to come keep it up boys!!
