On Monday we had the opportunity to take the girls football team to a tournament, run by Leeds United, at Football world. We had three matches at the group stage. Unfortunately we lost our first two 0-4 and 0-5. After changing our formation the girls came back with a 7-0 win. We had some fantastic teamwork and skill from all of them with some great goals from Trixii (2), Jasmine (2) and Laci (3). Well played girls!
Great friendly game of football against Ryecroft this afternoon where the girls grew in to the game as the time went on. Trixii scored 4 and Jasmine scored 2 in a 6-3 win for Cobden. Well done girls!
41 children went to take part in cross country at Farnley Academy today. There were outstanding performances from all the runners for getting round in tricky conditions - especially the muddy hill which was more like a travelator! Gracie came second in the Y3 girls race, winning a silver medal. We had a wide range of places with some finishing in the top 10 and 20 out of groups of forty runner. Well done everyone!
What a day! We were all so excited and ready to go for our first ever colour run! Everyone who took part did so with such enthusiasm and it was a great way to see the week (and summer by the looks of it!) out with a sea of colour.
We raised a whopping £1407.20 in sponsorship so thank you all for your fantastic support!
Our first tournament of the year was held here at Cobden today. We started with a close game against St Barts, losing 1-0 to a great goal from the opposition. Our second game, against Lower Wortley, saw them score some quick goals to take an early lead before going 4-0 up. A great cross from our attack saw a consolation goal clawed back to a final score of 4-1. Our final game, against Lawnspark, saw a close game end with a 2-0 win for us. Great effort from everyone!
