The year 5 football team suffered a cruel defeat to St. Augustine’s Primary School. It was definitely a game of two halves as Allerton started slowly and found themselves 2-0 at half time, however they turned it around in the second half and drew level within minutes. Both teams battled it out for the remainder of the half and it looked like it was going to finish 2-2 BUT a brief lapse in concentration saw St. Augustine’s score with the last kick of the game.
The year 6 footballers played their first football match of the new year in a friendly against Hovingham Primary School. The team were a bit rusty which was to be expected but as the game wore on the performance got better and better. Although the team lost 3-2 there were a lot of positives to draw from the game and I am sure that the team will get back to winning ways very soon.
The girls’ football team have started the New Year with a bang beating Bramham Primary School 5-2. The team are going from strength to strength and are improving with every game. They are a real credit to themselves and the school and special well done to Toni who scored 3, Abi and Sian who scored a goal apiece.
The Year 4 footballers put in some fine performances at the Leeds United Foundation 6 a side tournament held at Carr Manor High School. The team worked hard and played some good football in all 6 of their matches. They won 3, drew 1 and lost 2 -most importantly they all enjoyed themselves and showed great team spirit throughout the afternoon.
15 Children from year 4,5 and 6 were selected to represent the school in a friendly tournament held at Wath High School in Rotherham on Thursday 1st December 2016. The children were chosen because of their attitude, commitment, ability and behaviour. It was a fantastic afternoon with both teams putting in some great performances. The children were a real credit to themselves and the school and whilst the results didn’t all go our way, the players worked incredibly hard and gave a great account of themselves.
Year 4 march on to the next round of the Datacable Cup with a tremendous 4-1 win against St. Josephs Primary School Wetherby.
Well there’s not much I can say other than what a fantastic performance! The year 4 footballers really did shine, they played brilliant football from start to finish and all involved were exceptional.
Allerton took the lead within the first 5 minutes and there was never any doubt as to who was going to win. It didn’t come easy though as St. Jospeh’s put in a great performance but Allertons work rate, attitude and team work prevailed.
The year 6 football team took part in the Leeds United Foundation Road to Wembley tournament which saw 14 local schools fight it out for a spot in the next round. Unfortunately Allerton didn’t progress any further but they can be proud of the way that they performed and they gave a very good account of themselves.
