Wyvern school hosted the Hamble area boys football finals today. The competition was played between all of the top two teams from each of the cluster schools in the Hamble area, so the standard of football was very high indeed. Both our A and B teams had qualified for the event and they were placed in different pools. Our A team won all three of their pool matches against Wickham, Berrywood and Stoke Park by the same scoreline, three nil. Our B team began with a two one win over Freeggrounds, then drew nil nil with Netley Abbey and one all with Swanmore. These results put both of our teams through to the semis as group winners. Both semi-finals went to extra time and golden goal with both Fair Oak teams victorious! Our A team beat Freegrounds and our B team beat Berrywood to set up an all Fair Oak affair in the final. In a very even match neither team could score after normal time and so it was agreed that both teams would share the trophy! Well done to all of our boys who played superbly throughout!

Our girls cricketers played today in the North Eastleigh and Winchester competition at Hursley Cricket Club. The competing teams were split into two groups with the winners of each group playing against each other in the tournament final. Our A team started their campaign with a narrow six run defeat to Colden Common but then followed that up with three very one sided wins against St Peters, Otterbourne and Scantabout. These, together with the other group results meant that Colden Common, Otterbourne and Fair Oak all finished with nine points. Unfortunately, Colden Common just pipped Fair Oak as group winners on runs scored. Over in the other pool, Fair Oak B and Fair Oak C both ended up with a win each from their five matches and so finished fourth and fifth in the group. Well done to all of our fantastic cricketers who put in some great performances throughout the day!
