50th Anniversary of Cut Hedge Cross Country Competition

Wednesday 23rd November


Conditions underfoot for the run on Wednesday are very wet. For safety purposes we are recommending that ALL runners wear football boots.

Our annual Cut Hedge Trophy Cross Country Competition is continuing to grow in popularity with an increasing number of independent and maintained schools from across Essex taking part.

Its success may be because of our 100 acres of beautiful parkland or the high likelihood of being covered in mud; whichever it is this year's event is shaping up to be the biggest yet, helping us to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in style.

Races will be held in the following categories:

• Under 11's (Years 5 and 6) girls' and boys' races
• Under 13's (Year 7 and 8) girls' and boys' races

Each school can enter up to 6 children per team.

Gosfield School teams
We will of course be entering our own teams across all of the race categories. You are more than welcome to come along for the morning to cheer on all the runners and support your own children. The competition briefing begins at 10am in the Sports Hall with the results and final presentations being made at approximately 11.45am. Please do not arrive before 9.30am.

School Team registrations
To register your team please download the Team Registration Form and follow the instructions. Completed forms must be returned to Gosfield School by Wednesday 16th November.

Weather permitting
As with all outdoor activities scheduled in the winter months we will need to check weather and ground conditions nearer to the time. Updates or changes to the competition will be available on our website.

Y9&10 Hockey - Finborough 3 Gosfield 1

Tuesday 8th November

Well done to year 9 and 10 girls who played Hockey against Finborough on Tuesday 8th November. The girls started the match competitively showing some excellent play and great commitment. The score at the end of the half time was 1-1. A special mention has to go to Bella who adopted a new role of goalkeeper and make some outstanding saves. Also the most improved player has to go to Katelyn who particularly moved around the pitch brilliantly working hard to track down the opposition. The final score was 3-1 to Finborough. However, every player should be very proud of their efforts. There has been a significant improvement in game play this term. Well done girls!!!

U9 Football - Holmwood House vs Gosfield

Monday 7th November

Gosfield fielded 3 teams against Holmwood House, allowing every boy to play a full match. Gosfield acquitted themselves very well against the numerically and physically bigger Holmwood sides. The A team fought back well to eventually lose 5-3. The B team were down 3-2 at half time and although the opposition ran away with the match late on, the boys kept trying to the end. The C team lost 3-1 in a very even match where Holmwood capitalised on some errors late in the match. All boys should be proud of their effort and behaviour, well done.

U16 Rugby - Cambridge International 33 Gosfield 31

Thursday 4th November

Gosfield took a large squad of players to compete in a rugby match against Cambridge International School. Unfortunately CIS were down on numbers so the match was reduced to 9 aside. Gosfield rather sportingly gave every boy a run and in so doing cost themselves victory, this however, was not the goal and was acknowledged by our opposition. It was really pleasing to see the effort of all players, in what turned out to be a very high standard, entertaining match.
