U9 Football - Finborough 1 Gosfield School 1

Wednesday 22nd November

We turned up at Finborough School to see three separate teams training for a game against us. Given the time available we agreed to play against their A and B team. They were unbeaten in their six games and were convincing winners in all of them. So they were mightily surprised when our Gosfield boys began to boss the first game against their 'B' team. Scott Tyrie put in some crunching tackles and Adam Alsawaf was all over the pitch getting the ball back. It was Alfie Ratcliffe-Bingham who stood out playing in the centre of midfield. We went 1-0 down to an unfortunate defensive mistake but came back strongly to level with a shot across the goal by Alfie. We nearly scored several times but for some excellent saves by the Finbrorough goal keeper to keep the score to 1-1.

The second game against their best team was just as close and we only lost to a rebouded shot early in the second half. Jacob Freeman was strong in goal and Austin Willis, previously in goal was a demon in the midfield. An excellent first game boys-well done!

Under 13 Boys Football: Gosfield School 4 - 3 St John's School


St John's School turned up looking for a good game, and boy did they get one!  It was end to end stuff from the first minute. Freddie Calvert was a demon on the wing and scored the first straight from a corner. St John's then drew level with a goal from a penalty. Gosfield enjoyed a period of good possession and threatened to score several goals in the process. The pressure paid off as we scored two more goals to make the score 3-1 at half time.

After the break St John’s piled on the pressure playing some good football to expose our defence and get back to 3-2.  As St John's chased the game Charlie Gilfrin scored a breakaway goal as the defence opened up. A late consolation goal made the score 4-3 to Gosfield! A well deserved win for Gosfield, but one where we certainly learned what needs to be worked on in training! Well done, Boys!

ISA National Girls' Football Festival


ISA girls football 

On Tuesday 10th October 15 girls from Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 went to LVS Ascot to play in the ISA national girls' football festival. It was an action-packed day full of football fun. The U13 team included: Maddie, Roxy, Libby, Scarlett, Charlotte, Abi, Annie  and Ella. The girls were drawn into Pool 2 and had three other teams to play against. The girls' first game was against LVS Ascot Royals. The girls started the game a little on the cautious side and the game ended 0-0. The second game was against King Alfred. The girls grew in confidence and scored an impressive 2 goals with some fabulous passes breaking down the opposition's defence. The game ended 2-0 to Gosfield.  Goals were scored by Abi and Libby. The final game of the Pool was against Hurst Lodge. The girls remained confident supporting and encouraging each other and the final score was 1-0 to Gosfield. Unfortunately the girls ended runners up in their Pool due to the number of goals scored so Gosfield went through to the Plate competition. Our game was against Akeley wood; the opposition were very strong and we lost the game 2-0. Overall Gosfield came 3rd in the Plate competition. Well done to all the Year 7 and 8 girls: you all played brilliantly demonstrating some great football skills.    


The U15 team consisted of Jess, Amelia, Lucy, Rhian, Esther, Bella and Claudia. The girls were drawn into Pool 1and faced four other schools. The first game was against LVS Ascot Royals and ended 0-0. The girls were a little wary to start with but as their confidence grew they applied more pressure to the opposition tracking the players down and passing the ball more strongly. The second game was against Meoncross. The final score was 1-0 to the opposition. However in the third game against Hurst Lodge Bella was crossed the ball and went on to score a goal to take the lead 1-0. The game ended 1-1. The final game was against King Alfred and was by far the toughest game. The opposition were physically strong applying pressure straight from the whistle. The girls played incredibly well remaining highly motivated and encouraging all other team members. The game ended 2-0 to King Alfred. The girls went through to the Trophy completion and the game ended 0-0 which meant it went to penalties. A very exciting time! The girls lost the game in the final stages conceding 1 goal. Everyone should be very proud of their achievements. Well done! 


All the competitors had a fabulous day raising the profile of girls' football. We are all looking forward to next year’s competition!  





Cambridge International School 0 - 0 Gosfield School


Well done to all Year 7 and 8 girls who played Cambridge International School on Thursday 12th October. The girls played a mixed team and grew in confidence during the game tackling harder and applying pressure to the opposition. The final score was 0 -0. A special mention has to go to Imogen who worked hard in defence sweeping the ball away and making some impressive tackles. Libby also demonstrated some amazing saves in goal from some very powerful shots on target.

U15 XI Football - Walden School 4 Gosfield 0

Tuesday 7th March

With a number of influential older players absent, Gosfield travelled to Walden School but were unable to repeat the heroic home win of last week. With only 3 older players available, Gosfield competed for the majority of the match but conceded some soft goals with chaotic defending. Walden took every opportunity whilst Gosfield didn't take their chances. Year 8 keeper Charlie Bell did a splendid job and I am sure all the boys will learn from this match.
