Fair Oak B played some great netball ending up in third place with three wins and three defeats from their six matches. Fair Oak A ended up in second place and therefore qualified for the next tournament with a record of four wins, one draw and one loss. Well done to all of our fabulous netballers!

Fair Oak entered an inexperienced team into a basketball tournament held today at Wildern school. Indeed, for some of our athletes it was their first chance to represent our school in competitive fixtures. However, the whole squad gave a super account of themselves. First up was a match against Botley which ended in al one all draw. Next our team were beaten two nil against Berrywood before completing their group fixtures with another one all draw, this time against Freegrounds. This meant that Fair Oak went into a playoff for fifth position overall against Durley. By the end of the game the teams could not be separated and this match also finished all square, two all so fifth position was shared by the two sides. Well done to all of our fantastic basketball players!

A Fair Oak year five boys football team travelled to Petersfield to play a friendly game against Herne Junior School today. Our opponents played their strongest team consisting of year six pupils so our lads were in for a tough test! In a very open game, the goal rush started immediately as Fair Oak stormed into an early lead. However, this did not last long and Herne scored four before Fair Oak hit back. A further exchange of goals meant that at half time the score stood at seven three to the hosts! The second half was far less eventful and Fair Oak scored two more which meant that the final result was seven five to Herne. What an entertaining game and not a bad result for our year five boys.

Fair Oak had previously qualified for a netball tournament held at Wildern School today. The eight participating schools were split into two pools of four with the top two in each going through to the finals pool with a chance to win the overall competition and the bottom two playing in the shield group for fifth place. The top two teams from the event would go forward to represent our area later in the year at the Hampshire Games. Our team started off the tournament with a four one win over St James and followed this up with a nil nil draw with Hamble. Unfortunately our final group match ended in defeat, two one to Droxford. These results meant that Fair Oak made it through to the top pool and were still in with the opportunity of qualifying for the School Games! Fair Oak then drew each of their matches in this section of the competition nil nil with Wellstead, Swanmore and Droxford. This was not quite enough and sadly for our team, they just missed out on the school games by finishing in third place overall. What a great effort from all of our fabulous netballers!

Another group of twelve pupils visited Banister Park Bowling Club for a bowls taster session today. The children were taught the basics such as how the scoring works, types of delivery, ditch rules and tactics. The Fair Oak pupils listened to instructions brilliantly and as a result, they all made great progress and had fun!

Our boys A and B football teams had previously qualified for a finals tournament held today at Wildern School involving other winners of local leagues. The teams were split into two pools of four with everyone playing all the other teams in their group. The top two would progress to the semi final! As you would expect from area league winners, the standard of football on display was very high indeed. In their group, Fair Oak B started off with two nil nil draws, first with Freegrounds and then with Hamble before ending the group stage with a good two nil win against St Johns. Fair Oak A began with a two nil win against Swanmore and then went on to beat Netley Abbey by three goals to nil. Their final match was against Shamblehust who were also beaten, this time one nil. This meant that both of our teams won their pools without conceding a goal! In the first semi final the B team played brilliantly to take Shamblehurst to extra time but unfortunately it was Shamblehurst who scored the golden goal winner. In the other semi, Fair Oak A beat St Johns three nil. This set up a final between Fair Oak A and Shamblehurst. Fair Oak were camped throughout the game in the oppositions half but could not find the breakthrough and so the game went to extra time. This also ended without score so the match would be decided on penalties. Unfortunately it was Shamlehurst who came out on top and therefore won the overall tournament by three spot kicks to two. Well played to both our magnificent A and B teams.

Our girls football team travelled to play a friendly against Hook with Warsash today and against strong opposition, our girls put in a very good performance. The match began with a sustained period of pressure from the home team but Fair Oak defended resolutely. Unfortunately though, our girls conceded before half time to leave the score one nil at the break to the home team. The second half began in much the same fashion although Fair Oak showed more promise up front and looked dangerous on the break. Despite this, Hook scored once more but Fair Oak heads did not drop and we quickly pulled a goal back. In an exciting finish, the Fair Oak girls just couldn’t find the equaliser despite being camped in the home teams box. Well done to all of the girls for a great performance despite the loss.

April ended with a home friendly football match for our year four-five boys football team against a year-five six Durley side. The match began brightly for our boys who took the lead and looked the better team. However, Durley equalised late in the half with a shot that took an awful bobble in front of the keeper before going in. In the second half, Durley took control and scored two without reply which left the final score three one to the visitors. Despite the scoreline our young side should be proud of the way they played!
