Football Trials

Football Trials

Below are the dates for next years Grange Park Football Team trials. As always the trials are open to all the children in the year groups below and even if your child doesn’t make the squad, we will try our best to give them the opportunity to play a friendly match throughout the year. As our field won’t be ready for September, Telford Park School have very kindly offered for us to hold our trials inside their sports hall. A letter regarding the trials will be given out on our first day back on Monday 4th September.

Trial Dates:

Year 3/4 Girls Football Team Trials – Tuesday 5th September
Year 3/4 Boys Football Team Trials – Wednesday 6th September
Year 5/6 Girls Football Team Trials – Thursday 7th September
Year 5/6 Boys Football Team Trials – Friday 8th September


Mini Sports Day 2017

Mini Sports Day 2017

12 Mini Sports Days – Complete
120 Medals put on Ribbons – Complete
Sports Assembly Video 2017 – Complete

Well done to all the children in the 12 classes that have this week completed our Intra School Mini Sports Days. The top 3 boys/girls scorers from each class will be announced in our sports assembly on Wednesday 12th July and will receive their medals. I have been blown away with the effort and ability shown at these events and have been extremely proud of all the children taking part. All the scores were extremely close and in many cases the difference between 3rd and 4th place was only 1 point.

I would also like to thank all the KS2 children that came out to help run the stations and help with the scoring. Without their help and without their teachers allowing them out to help with our mini sports days we wouldn’t have been able to hold the events this year.

We hope the children have enjoyed their class Mini Sports Days and again we apologise for not being able to hold a traditional sports day this year.

Could all the children in the two reception classes please make sure they have their PE kits in school next Friday 14th July as they will be having their own little fun sports day.

Mr James

Year 3/4 Meadows Champions

Year 3/4 Meadows Champions

Well done to our Year 3/4 football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. This completes a clean sweep of all our teams winning the cup this year. What an amazing achievement this is, the whole school is extremely proud of every child that has taken part. The boys got off to a slow start tonight but towards the end of the tournament they were back to their best and playing some amazing football to beat a very strong team and tournament favourites Meadows Primary School 2-0.
The boys were unbeaten after playing 6 matches and only conceded 1 goal all night:

Grange Park 0 – 0 Short Wood
Grange Park 2 – 1 HLC
Grange Park 3 – 0 Randlay
Grange Park 0 – 0 John Fletcher
Grange Park 2 – 0 St Georges
Grange Park 2 – 0 Meadows

When all the scores were added up it was announced we had the same points as John Fletcher Primary School so it had to go to goal difference. Amazingly our goal difference was exactly the same so it was decided we would become joint winners with John Fletcher.

Well done again boys, it’s been a great season and an even better way to end it.
