St Paul’s Football Teams

Football training for the boys is every Wednesday after school and is run by Mr Potsos.  We’ve had some friendly matches and last week we had our first match in the Cluster League which is made up of 6 local schools.  This was against Hadley Wood School and played at Southgate School.

After 5 minutes, a mistake in Hadley’s defence resulted in our first goal which we kicked into the bottom right corner.  Also in the first half, their goalie didn’t clear the ball properly after one of our attacking moves and we were able to take advantage and score our second goal.  The second half wasn’t so good for us.  The referee gave a decision against us, following on from which Hadley were given a corner and scored.  Then, after a free kick was given against us, Hadley scored again.  The match then ended in a 2-2 draw.

Later in the term the boys team will be playing matches in the Fursman Cup and we have also entered a knock out competition.

Mr Potsos manages the boys team and trains us.  He picks the boys for each match and ensures that all boys that attend the training play in a match at some stage.  He has arranged for a sponsor to provide us with our training kit and our strip and we are very, very grateful to him and our sponsor.

The girls also have a football team.  They have played one league match which they drew and they have also entered into a knock-our competition.  They are trained by Mr Crouch and the matches are managed by Mrs Perrin.
