On Tuesday 14th November, our Year 5 and 6 boys football team played in the first round of the Hampshire Plate against Cherbourg Primary School. Having narrowly lost in the first round of the cup, the boys were determined to get a more positive result. They started the game brightly and moved the ball around well. There were several half chances in the first few minutes. In the 8th minute, Odhran did well to beat his man and make some space to cross the ball to Jake. Jake was able to turn the defender and fired into the bottom corner to make it 1-0 to Fair Oak. Five minutes after that, the same combination provided the second goal. George played a through ball to Odhran. Odhran again crossing for Jake to neatly turn the ball in. Harry and Radley were alert at the back and prevented Cherbourg from too many attempts on goal. However, just before half time they were able to pull one goal back as Fair Oak stopped, thinking the ball had gone out of play only for Cherbourg to finish well in the one on one versus Evan.


Cherbourg started the second half very well and were motivated by their late goal in the first half. They hit the bar and had a few half chances before their midfielder managed to find the top corner, after a corner was half cleared with, with a fantastic strike. For the second match in a row the boys found themselves at 2 -2 having lost a lead! It was pleasing to see the way they reacted though as they rallied together and had multiple chances. Leo showed some fantastic dribbling before placing the ball just wide and Frank also had a long range effort whistle past the post. For large periods, Cherbourg were defending their goal line as Rueben caused them problems down the right but we were unable to find the decisive goal.


The game finished at 2-2 and, with the light quickly fading the game went into extra time. The boys played at furious pace and, early on, Odhran took a long range shot which deflected past the keeper to make it 3-2. The boys continued to attack and never looked like conceding but the game finished at 3-2 to Fair Oak. The boys now progress to the next round against Bartley and will look to build on their performance from this game.

The girls football team travelled to Vigo Primary School in Andover to compete in the Hampshire Plate competition. In a thrilling match, the girls came away with a 3-2 victory! It was a physical, competitive encounter played in great spirit where both sets of players were congratulated by spectators and coaches for the excellent skill and work rate on display. 


Well done girls! Onto the third round!

The lower school boys football team finally took part in their first football tournament of the year after a couple of postponements. The boys played some great football and that showed by winning three out of the four fixtures that were played. The team won 6-0, 4-0, 1-0 and narrowly lost 1-0 despite a dominant performance. A big thank you to the parents that came along to support the team.
