Year 6 Football Tournament - Batley Sports Centre - 8th March

Football Tournament March 17

Match Report from the Norristhorpe Team : Luca, Ethan, Ross, Max, Thomas, Kody and Adam

"On the 8th March 2017 the second round of the Batley Association Football Tournament took place at Batley Sports and Tennis Centre.

Eight schools took part in the tournament with referees from St John Fisher High School.

The schools present were Batley Parish, Carlinghow, Holy Spirit, Norristhorpe, (Spen Valley SGO area) and Staincliffe, St Mary’s, Westmoor and Windmill.

It was yet another successful event aided by mass enthusiasm and verbal support and yet another nail biting finale!

 At the mid-point it appeared that Batley Parish and Norristhorpe were battling it out for outright winners and Holy Spirit and Windmill would be scraping it out for the final qualifying berth. That analysis was correct but a last couple of games blip by Batley Parish ensured Norristhorpe finished victorious. The third qualifying spot was much closer to call, going into the last round of games, with Staincliffe also emerging as outsiders from the pack. A win was essential for all sides. Staincliffe took a well-earned point from Batley Parish, and although Holy Spirit did all they could with a 4- 0 victory, Windmill, courtesy of a tense 1-0 win against Westmoor, just did enough to progress.

The final points totals were:

1st :Norristhorpe 17, 2nd :Batley Parish 14, 3rd :Windmill 14,  4th :Holy Spirit 13, 5th : Staincliffe 10, 6th : Westmoor 7,

7th: St Marys 1, 8: Carlinghow 1

Norristhorpe Y6 Boys vs Holy Spirit Y6 Boys

 Luca and Ethan Class 6O -  Match Report

"On Thursday 6th October Norristhorpe Year 6 Boys won against Holy Spirit 7-2. The boys who played for Norristhorpe were Luca S, Ross M, Ethan G, Max T, Kody T-W, Zac M, Thomas P and Adam M.

Ross scored two outstanding goals from defence, Zac scored a screamer placed right in the left bottom corner and last but not least Adam scored 4 beautiful goals all in different places of the net! It was a great game. Only won by teamwork"


"It was really fun being in the school team. It was my first real match! I played as goal keeper so it was really fun watching the team play outstandingly. All the defenders were doing their job and helping a lot. I may have let two goals in but my team encouraged me a lot ". - Luca, Class 6O

"It was hard but exciting at the same time. The team all played supreme and only won by teamwork. Everyone played their part. I played left back and stopped Holy Spirit getting a chance to score. I think I played well but we played better as a team". - Ethan, 6O
