Berrywood School hosted a qualifying football tournament for the Year Five County Finals which takes place later this month at Wide Lane. Only one school from the event would qualify for the finals. Fair Oak began the group stages with a one all draw with Durley and then followed that up with a dominant display against Stoke Park. However, Fair Oak could not finish their chances and the match ended goal less. In the second round of group matches, the same fixtures were repeated. Fair Oak again dominated their next match against Durley but could not find their way past an inspired opposition goal keeper and that story was repeated against Stoke Park so both of these matches also ended with no score. In a tight group, Fair Oak’s total of four points meant that they just missed out on the semi finals. Well done to all of those who took part!

Herne girls football team visited Fair Oak for a friendly match today to help prepare our team for the season ahead. The first half was a very even affair with Fair Oak creating the best of the few chances there were. Herne took the lead early in the second half and despite some good territorial pressure from the home side, Herne held on for a hard fought one nil victory. Well done to all of our players who worked really hard in very hot conditions.

Today it was the turn of our Year 6 boys football team to play their qualifying tournament at Berrywood for the upcoming County Finals competition to be held at Wide Lane. First up for Fair Oak were Berrywood. Our opponents were a big, physical team but Fair Oak played really well to overcome their opposition by a late goal to nil! Next up were Stoke Park and despite dominating territorially, Fair Oak could not put the ball in the net and the match ended nil nil. Our final group opponents were Droxford and Fair Oak were in control throughout, winning by two goals to nil. This meant that our boys qualified for the semi-finals as group winners and would play Botley. From the start it was clear that the two sides were very evenly matched and that the game would probably be decided by the odd goal and unfortunately it was Botley who came up with the winning strike to win the match one nil. Despite not making it to the final, our boys can be extremely proud of themselves for playing great football throughout the tournament!

Berrywood were our final opposition and again, Fair Oak dominated but could not get a goal and so drew another match nil nil! This left our team with three points which meant that Fair Oak just missed out on a semi-final place. Well played to our girls for a battling performance throughout.
