Gosfield fielded two equal ability teams and every boy in year 3 and 4 enjoyed a number of well contested games. The boys all gained valuable experience of match conditions and the values of teamwork and hard work. Some wins, losses and draws were experienced but ultimately this was a very valuable learning experience.

Our Year 3 and 4 girls took part in a triangular fixture at Stoke College against the hosts and Cambridge International. All the girls had the opportunity to play as we fielded two teams. There were no goal keepers and in one game the girls had to use plastic sticks and balls as the opposition had no shinpads or gumshields.
Stoke College 1 Gosfield 1 (Darcy)
Stoke College 2 Gosfield 1 (Isobel Gale)
Gosfield 0 Cambridge International 3
Gosfield 1 (Fareeda) Cambridge International 0
With only a few weeks of coaching the girls performed with great determination. Their basic skills of dribbling and passing improving as the games progressed. The girls knowledge of game play will improve over the next few weeks as we work hard in preparation for our home fixture on Wednesday 9th November.
Isobelle Paget is my player of the match. She really tried her best and involved herself in both attacking and defending play. Well done!

This was a tough day at the office with the numerically larger Walden School providing a team that was also physically larger and much more experienced than Gosfield. Gosfield's team should be proud of the way they toiled to the end, with Henry Thorne, Ben McQuillan and Chris Crowley all scoring tries, well converted by Kyron Moon. Alex Allen was again a standout whilst Michael Freeman and Henry Thorne were also to the fore until Henry was unfortunately injured - we wish him a speedy recovery.

A massive well done to all year 9 and 10 girls who played hockey against New Eccles on Tuesday afternoon. All the girls played really well demonstrating super teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the duration of the match. The final score was 5-0 to Gosfield. Player of the match goes to Emily for her excellent shooting skills: the final goal was a fabulous mid air shot that sailed past the keeper. A special mention has to go to Madi for playing for the opposition when one of their players got injured. Most improved player of the match goes to Rhea for excellent defending and clearing the ball when New Eccles were on the attack with some very impressive fast breaks. A fabulous end to the half term. Well done girls!!!
The cooler days and the beautiful colours in the trees around Cut Hedge Park are sure signs that Autumn is here and that we are well into our first term of the new academic year. Dr Welch takes some time to update our parents on the events that have taken place since the start of the new school year.
