Game of two Halves

Game of two Halves

B Team Redhill

Well done to our Year 3/4 A/B mixed football team that drew 4-4 tonight against Redhill Primary School. It was definitely a game of two halves with Grange Park being 4-0 after the first half. Redhill scored early in the 2nd half with a long range shot and then they scored their 4th with nearly the last kick of the game. This was only the 2nd time some of the boys had ever played in a football match and they all did a great job and had fun.

vs Dawley

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight won 6-0 against Dawley CoE School. The pitch was very small, very muddy and very slippy which made it difficult for our girls to pass the ball around like they usually do but they had a great time and still scored some brilliant team goals. Also special mention to the girls that represented Grange Park Football team for the first time tonight and to the other girls that helped and supported them throughout the match #TeamGP

National Finals

Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that today took part in the National League Cup at the Buck Heads stadium. The boys were drawn in an extremely tough group but won the group after winning all 3 of their games convincingly. The quarter final was a lot tighter when we were drawn against Redhill Primary School. The boys started off strong and were passing the ball around lovely and took an early 2-0 lead. The game then turned a bit scrappy and Redhill scored with a few minutes left and piled on the pressure but our defence held strong and saw out the 2-1 victory. That meant we had to play one of the tournament favourites Apley Wood in the semi finals. Again the boys got off to a flyer and were 3-0 up within 5 minutes. Apley scored a goal but our boys bounced back and scored almost straight away. The game finished 4-1 to Grange Park and it was by far our best performance of the day. Lawley were the other finalists and the game was end to end before Lawley finally broke the deadlock half way through the game with a great strike. Grange Park then went all out attack and must of hit the bar and post at least 5 times but just couldn’t get the ball in the net. The boys couldn’t have worked any harder than they did this morning and were so unlucky to lose in the final. Good luck to Lawley in the National finals. Well done again boys, another great #TeamGP performance

Well done to our two Year 3/4 girls football teams that took part in a 5-a-side tournament at AFC Telford tonight. Both teams played some amazing football and got some cracking results. Over the past few weeks at training we’ve been working on passing the ball as a team and positioning on the pitch with and without the ball. The girls have really taken in all the advice and it was evident tonight just how much these girls have improved as a team.

Grange Park 1 (Purple Team) amazingly won the tournament, playing 7 games, winning 6 and drawing 1. Whats more impressive is, the girls didn’t conceded a single goal all night. A massive achievement especially considering it was non stop football on small pitches. Having a solid Goalkeeper and Defence gives our midfield and forwards the confidence and freedom to attack at every opportunity.

Grange Park 2 (Red Team) finished 4th overall out of 8 teams, just missing out on 3rd place. They were certainly the most improved team over the tournament and actually beat the only team that the Grange Park 1 didn’t manage to. That just shows how high the standard was tonight and how well both our teams did.

Extremely proud of both teams, they were an absolute credit to the school and are proving that hard work at training pays off. Keep up the hard work girls.

All girls will receive their certificates in assembly soon and the trophy will be delivered soon #TeamGP

5.6 girls county finals

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that went undefeated and kept 3 clean sheets in tonight’s @SSCFA2 finals. The standard of girls football was extremely high tonight, so the fact we didn’t concede a single goal was a great achievement. The girls saved their best performance of the night for their last game, where they played against a very strong St Peters Wem team. The game was end to end but St Peters probably had the best chance of the game but as usual our keeper was on top form and pulled off a fantastic one v one save. Well done girls, shooting practice at training next week 🙂 #TeamGP

Well done to our Year 5/6 Girls Football Team that tonight won 12-0 against John Fletcher Primary School. The girls played amazing again, especially as the conditions were shocking. Parts of the football pitch were as slippy as an ice rink, luckily only one girl fell over in the mud and even more luckier, her dad was taking her home in his car. Well done again tonight girls, another brilliant team performance

3.4 girls John Fletcher

What a great performance from our Year 3/4 girls football team tonight that played against a very strong John Fletcher Primary School. As you can see from the pictures, the conditions weren’t the best for our usual passing style of play but the girls had a great time and still put in an excellent performance, especially in the 2nd half. John Fletcher dominated the 1st the half but with our goalkeeper and defence on amazing form, they only managed to score 1. The 2nd half was a different story with Grange Park absolutely dominating possession but we just couldn’t get the ball in the net, we think the ball stopped in the mud on their goal line at least 3 times. As we went all out attack to try and get the equaliser, John Fletcher caught us on the break twice and even with our goalkeeper being on magnificent form and making some great saves throughout the game, their was nothing she could do to stop their great goals. Despite going behind by three goals our girls attitude remained positive and they got their reward with a fantastic team goal towards the end of the match. Couldn’t of been any prouder of these girls tonight, another fantastic team performance in very tricky conditions. Every match they play they are improving. Well done girls #TeamGP

Sponsor Appeal – Unfortunately because the boys had to wear the year 3/4 kit at last nights county finals, the girls team tonight had to wear the Year 5/6 girls kit. Although they loved wearing this kit, some of the girls looked like they were wearing a dress rather than a football top. If anyone that owns or works for a company that would be interested in sponsoring our Year 3/4 girls football team with their very own kit, please contact Mr James on lee.james2@taw.org.uk

3.4 County Cup

Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that tonight played in the final round of the U9 County Cup. The standard of football was very high tonight but the boys did the school proud again. Unfortunately we didn’t qualify to the semi finals after drawing 2 matches and losing the other. The highlight of the night was the boys last match where they came back from being 2-0 down after 2 minutes to eventually drawing 2-2. The boys showed great bouncebackability and a brilliant never give up attitude #TeamGP
