Football

Historic Double!

 

Chickerell Primary Academy’s football aces are celebrating after registering a remarkable double triumph recently.

 

In the Nash Cup, held on the 22nd March 2019 for Year 5 and Year 6 children, they grew in confidence after a quiet start and soon began to stroke in the goals. Star striker Reuben scored over a dozen of them as, captained by George, they proceeded to defeat Radipole in the semi-final and Holy Trinity in the final.

 

This was swiftly followed by success in the St George’s Cup.  Held on 1st May for Year 3 and year 4 children, a very disciplined performance by the team, ably captained by Jacob, saw them defeat St John’s in the final.

 

Headteacher Jody Harris said, ‘This is the first time the school has won both events and I am naturally proud of all the children. Sport is highly valued at Chickerell Primary Academy, with a strong emphasis on inclusivity and widespread provision.’

Area Success 2018-2019

 

We are now the proud winners of the Area Nash Cup in Yr 5 and 6 and the St Georges Cup in Year 4. A huge congratulations to the boys, and Mr Pask and Mr Broom for their hard work and commitment to the team.

INDOOR 5 A SIDE- 24th January

 

Yr 5/6 boys took part in the local indoor 5 a side competition on the 24th January and were very successful. They did not lose  a game during the whole tournament and only lost first place on goal difference. We are very proud of their achievements, and their behaviour was also exemplary.

 

 

Southill Y5/6 Girls v Chickerell Y5/6 Girls (3-2) : 26 November 2018

 

A highly spirited effort by Chickerell eventually resulted in a narrow 3-2 defeat. During the first half Southill had the edge, but a determined approach by Chickerell, aided by a brave performance by Elise in goal and a fine strike by Millie (Y3), saw them trailing at the interval by just the odd goal. After the break Chickerell’s confidence increased significantly and they mounted numerous attacks. Millie also registered their second goal when the ball clearly crossed the line before being retrieved by the keeper and, had the game lasted a further five minutes, there is every chance Chickerell would have got a positive result.

 

Chickerell Y5/6 Boys v Southill Y5/6 Boys (6-0) : 3 December 2018

 

This was a very dominant performance throughout. Making good use of space, efficient passing and crisp finishing saw Chickerell leading 3-0 at half time. The second half followed the same pattern, with three more goals being scored and, but for some fine saves by Southill’s keeper, the tally would have been even higher. Reuben M scored all six goals, but all the team played their part in a fine victory.
