Wednesday 1st October
Four girls teams were entered into a football competition held at Wyvern involving other local schools. Our teams played brilliantly throughout showing a high level of both skill and commitment, but most pleasing of all, the Fair Oak girls all played the game in a sporting manner. Group one was won by Fair Oak Red with Fair Oak Blue finishing as runners up. In group two the winners were Fair Oak Green. Upham finished second with Fair Oak Yellow in third place. This meant that Fair Oak Red played Fair Oak Green in the final and Fair Oak Blue played Upham in a third/fourth place match. The third/fourth place result went the way of Fair Oak by three goals to nil and the final was won by Fair Oak Red who beat Fair Oak Green three one. Well done to all those who took part!

Our Year 5 boys football team took part in a Hampshire finals tournament at Wide Lane which included the best teams in the county. Fair Oak got off to a solid start with a one all draw against a strong Sarisbury side. In our second match against Lyndhurst of Portsmouth we won by a score line of two goals to one. Holy Family of Southampton were our next opponents and they too were dispatched this time by a scoreline of two goals to nil. Our final two fixtures ended goalless against Castle Hill and Purbrook despite Fair Oak dominance which meant that by the end of the tournament Fair Oak were unbeaten. Despite this, our boys ended up in third place even though they had beaten the eventual champions, Lyndhurst. The Fair Oak boys played brilliantly throughout and did the school proud. Well done!

Twenty four of the quickest runners from the Lower School took part in a cross country race which was held at Fleming Park. The race included many schools from the local area so the standard of running was high. As usual, our pupils performed superbly. In both the Year 3 girls and Year 3 boys races three of our runners finished in the top ten. For the Year 4 races, one Fair Oak runner finished in the top ten for the girls while three of our Year 4 boys came in the top ten, one of whom won the race! What great running from the all of our Lower School runners.

The boys Year 6 football team had previously qualified for this Hampshire finals tournament held at Wide Lane playing fields. Just like the Year 5 tournament, the opposition included only the very best teams from around the county. Our boys began with a draw against Purbrook before recording their first win in the next game by a goal to nil against Northwood. This was followed up by another victory by Fair Oak, this time by two goals to nil. Lyndhurst from Portsmouth were our next opponents and unfortunately, in a very tight game, our opponents just edged us out one nil despite a lot of Fair Oak pressure and a superb shot from us which rattled the post! Our next two games ended in one all draws firstly against Hook with Warsash and then against Bartley. This left Fair Oak with one game of the tournament left against St Swithun-Wells and our boys ended the tournament in style with a two nil win. All this meant that when the final points totals were collated, Fair Oak finished in third place behind Bartley and the winners, Lyndhurst. Well done to all of our boys who worked hard throughout the tournament and did our school proud.

Well done to all of the athletes who took part!

The Fair Oak boys A team played their second round match in the Hampshire Cup at home to Hook with Warsash. The match started at a frantic pace with both sides showing a great amount of commitment and skill but it was Fair Oak who took an early lead. The pressure mounted on the away side and the goals kept flowing for Fair Oak. Indeed, at half time the score line stood at five goals to one in favour of the home team. Our boys added a further three goals in the second half and ended up convincing eight one winners.
Tuesday 21st October
Our girls A team were drawn away to Warren Park Primary School in Havant for their second round match in the Hampshire Cup. Fair Oak had to soak up a lot of pressure throughout the match but were devastating on the break and as a result, at half time the score stood at two nil to the away side. Great defending by our girls again gave us a solid base on which to build in the second half and we soon scored again to make it three nil. This is the way the match ended. We look forward to hearing the draw for the next round.
