June Sports News

Tuesday 4th June

Two teams were entered into a boys cricket tournament held at Lapstone Park today between schools from the South Eastleigh and Winchester partnership. The competing teams were split into four pools for the first part of the competition. The winners of each pool would qualify for the semi final stage. Fair Oak A beat Botley in their first match by 54 runs and followed that up with another win, this time beating Bursledon by 84 runs. Our B team started their campaign with a 51 run win against Hamble. They then beat Swanmore by 4 runs and in their final group match, they beat Durley by 13 runs. This meant that both of our teams would play each other in the first of the semi finals! This match was closely contested with both of our teams bowling really accurately, but it was Fair Oak A who ground out the win by 41 runs. This meant that Fair Oak B played Berrywood to decide who would finish third. Unfortunately it was Berrywood who were victorious by 104 runs to 45. In the final, our A team produced a superb performance to restrict Droxford to just 51 runs. They then batted solidly to amass 75 runs and therefore win the overall event. This means that out A team have qualified for the County Finals event held at the Utilita Bowl later in the month. Well done to both of our teams who played the game in a great spirit throughout!


Tuesday 11th June

It was the turn of our girls cricket team to enter our area qualifying tournament for the county finals at the Utilita Bowl today. In the group stages, Fair Oak began with a comfortable win against Netley Abbey by 36 runs. After that, our girls ran out narrow winners against a very competitive Hamble side, this time by only 8 runs! This meant that the team won the group and were placed in the top pool in the second stage of the competition and would fight it out with Botley and Droxford to see who would qualify for the finals. Unfortunately Botley got the better of our encounter winning by 18 runs. In our game with Droxford, Fair Oak lost out again, this time by only 15 runs. This meant that our girls finished in third place overall. They should be very proud of the way they performed today. For many of the team, it was their first taste of competitive cricket. Well done girls!


Year 3 and 4 Tennis competition

On Tuesday 18th June, four children represented Fair Oak in a tennis competition held at Wildern School. The standard of tennis was exceptionally high and Isla, Matthew, Finley and Liv represented our school brilliantly. With 10 schools competing, they did  incredibly well to come second. A huge well done to all four of you. The level of tennis was excellent, as was the determination and sportsmanship you demonstrated. 


Tuesday 25th June

Today our boys cricket team played their County Finals Tournament at The Utilita Bowl. The team had previously qualified by winning a competition at The Lapstone Park playing fields. The competing sides were split into groups with every one playing the other schools in their pool with the winning sides qualifying for the quarter-final. Fair Oak began with a victory over Bentley by 82 runs to 74. Next up were Craneswater. Fair Oak batted first and never seemed to really get going, ending up with 48. Despite bowling well, it was our opponents who won, finishing with 58 runs. In the final group match, Bentley beat Craneswater which meant that all three sides finished with one victory each! The winners of the group were Bentley due to the fact that they had scored the most runs ou of the three sides in their fixtures. Fair Oak narrowly finished in third place. Our boys then played two friendly (but actually very competitive!) matches. The first saw Fair Oak beat Stockbridge by a huge margin, 124 runs to 26. In the final match, Awbridge were the opponents. They were also beaten, this time with a scoreline of 75 runs to 66. Our team should be proud of their efforts not just today and the way they represented our school! Well done to all those involved.


Year 5 Sports Leaders

Tuesday 25th June also saw a group of Year 5 pupils attended a sports leadership workshop at Botley Primary School. The aim of the workshop was to create a group of sports ambassadors who will be able to help lead activities for younger pupils during lunchtimes from September. Our pupils demonstrated all the attributes needed to become great leaders; confidence, empathy, motivation, and communication skills. We look forward to them supporting our younger pupils to enjoy activities on the playground soon.
