Well done to both our Year 5/6 football teams that tonight competed in the Telford & Wrekin football tournament. The standard was extremely high in Telford again and every match was closely contested. Grange Park team 2 have qualified for the next round of the cup after drawing one match and comfortably winning the other two games. Grange Park 1 narrowly missed out on getting through to the next stage of this cup finishing 3rd in their group with only the top two teams qualifying.
Grange Park 2 will find out who they will play in the knockout stage of the competition in a couple of weeks when all the qualifying groups are complete and Grange Park 1 will now take part in the Telford & Wrekin Plate competition.
We will try and arrange some training and friendly games before their next competition match.
Well done to the Year 3/4 football team that tonight won 6-3 in their first match of the season against Randlay Primary School. The game was extremely tight in the first half but Grange Park took their chances and came in 3-0 up. Randlay started the 2nd half on fire and scored two quick goals but our boys showed great bouncebackability and scored another goal straight from kick off. The second half then continued to be end to end with both teams having chances. Well done boys, especially the boys making their debuts for the Grange Park football team and even more so to the boys that were playing in their first ever competitive match. Thank you Randlay Primary School for the game, its always nice to play our neighbours #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight played a friendly match against a good Meadows Primary School team. The team lost 4-0 but put in another fantastic performance. Not only was this the first time some of the children had ever played for Grange Park, it was the first time they had ever played in a real competitive football match. Mr Thorpe commented on how proud of all the boys he was and that you would never of guessed this was their first match. Well done to our experienced football players that encouraged and helped their team mates along the way. Very proud of the team and we hope the children that played for the first ever time tonight enjoyed it.
Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight sailed through to the next stage of the County Shield after putting in three fantastic performances. The team got off to a flyer beating one of the favourites for the competition Coleham 3-0. We then won the next match against St John Baptist School 2-0 and then in the final game of our group, we won 3-0 against Longnor. It was lovely to hear comments from the parents and coaches of our opponents on how well the Grange Park team played. The passing and movement on show from Grange Park tonight was an absolute pleasure to watch. Keep up the good work and good luck in the next round #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that tonight played against a very strong Redhill Year 6 team. The girls played great as a team again and played some lovely passng football. We lost the game 3-0 but the girls gave their all and it was nice to see the girls still come off the pitch with big smiles on their faces. It has to be mentioned that Redhill had one extremely talented girl that plays for WBA academy and she scored all 3 of Redhill’s goals after winning the ball in the middle of the pitch and producing 3 fantastic solo goals. Our girls all commented on how good she was and this is the standard we are aiming for. Very proud of the performance from our girls tonight but even prouder of the way they handled defeat.
Well done girls
Mr James #TeamGP
Well done to our Year 5/6 football team that tonight beat Redhill 5-2 in our first match of the season. This is a great achievement as Redhill won the year 3/4 and 5/6 cup last year. Lots of positives to take from tonight’s performance and lots to work on before our next match. Good luck to the year 5/6 girls football team that are also playing at Redhill tomorrow night. Well done again #TeamGP
Sorry I forgot to take a team photo 🙈 Mr James
Grange Park student Brodie Miller attended the Shropshire and Hereford Golf Union Pee Wee tour which resulted in attendance at four out the five locations across July and August 16. The juniors (Under 8’s) play nine holes with the lowest score in each location contributing to the final result.
The results below are from the following Golf courses:-
Shifnal Golf Club – Score 51 – Overall 4th Place
Telford Golf Club – Score 63 – Overall 3rd Place
Oswestry Golf Club – Score 40 – Overall 2nd Place
Bridgnorth Golf Club Score 38 – Overall 1st Place
This culminated in Brodie finishing Joint 1st in the overall Pee Wee tour 2016. This is tremendous result for Brodie who continues to develop his golfing skills that I am sure will lead to further achievements, but also for the school to recognise that a pupil at Grange Park has worked incredibly hard during the summer to reach this pinnacle in his young golfing career.
