Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that today competed in the Crossbar Cup. This was the first time some of the girls had ever played in a competitive football match. Every single player was absolutely brilliant and couldn’t have given anymore than they did. Our girls played 4 matches back to back and drew two and narrowly lost two. This meant we had to play Ladygrove in a play off match and we showed great bouncebackability and determination to come from 1-0 down to be leading 2-1 with only a minute left. Unfortunately ladygrove got a freekick with only 5 seconds left and with the last kick of the game scored. This meant the game had to go to extra time. The girls really dug deep but unfortunately despite applying lots of pressure on our opponents, Ladygrove broke and scored to win the match. All the hard work the girls have put in at training really showed today with some fantastic performances. Well done girls.

Tri Golf County Finals

Well done to our 6 golfers that today represented Telford and Wrekin at the School County Finals. All 6 children played some outstanding golf throughout the afternoon and we knew it would take a brilliant performance from one of the nine other schools to beat us. In one putting challenge we scored an amazing 290 points. We narrowly missed out on winning by just 13 points with Grange Park scoring 927 and the winning Shropshire school scoring 940. 13 points might sound like a lot but that is just one shot in tri-golf. To demonstrate how amazing our score was, 3rd place scored 745, 182 points behind us. So proud of these 6 children, to go from never playing golf a couple of months ago to now finishing 2nd in the whole County.

Well done to the Grange Park Cycling team that today competed in the School Games County Finals. This was the first time any of our team had competed in track racing and they did themselves and the school proud. The boys had to compete in four different events and eventually finished 5th out of 10 schools from across Shropshire. Luck certainly wasn’t on our side today either when a chain on our first run was playing up which slowed our racer down and then in our second race one of the bikes gears wouldn’t change. The boys never complained about their bikes though and just carried on competing. Well done again boys.

Thank you so much: http://www.telfordtoilets.com/ for our amazing new kit. We have been so lucky this year to recieve new kits through sponsorship and we would of really struggled to take part in so many events without these kits. The girls looked great and thoroughly enjoyed being the first team to wear the new kit.
