Great First Match

Great First Match

Year 3.4

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 the Year 4/5 football team that tonight won the Meadows Cup. The boys played some absolutely stunning football tonight and fully deserved their win. They got off to a great start winning their first match 13-0 but we knew the next match would be tough playing against a team that had also won their first match by double figures. Grange Park got off to stunner though, scoring 2 goals in the first 5 minutes and winning the match 4-1, with our goalkeeper having to make an absolutely stunning save when we 2-1 up. This now meant if we won our last match we would be through to the cup final. The boys continued where they left off in the last match and won the last group game 7-0.

The cup final match unfortunately had to be cut short to a 12 minute match because of time issues and the game remained 0-0 for most of the first half. Just before half time though we scored another brilliant team goal. Grange Park then had a few chances to get a second but our opponents goalkeeper and defence were looking solid and they always looked dangerous on the break. We knew it would take something brilliant to get a second goal and we accomplished that with a fantastic team goal that included 9 passes before the ball was crossed in and slotted home in the corner.

Well done boys, that was an absolutely brilliant team performance. Perfect

Today we had a visit from the Shropshire Star newspaper to take a photograph of the 7 Grange Park girls that all got into the AFC Telford United U10 team. Luke Shelley from AFC Telford also featured in the picture said ‘Its a great achievement for these girls to go from never playing football a year ago, to winning the Telford Schools Cup this season, to now being selected to represent AFC Telford next year’. Well done again girls.

The team were absolutely fantastic all night and thoroughly deserved their win. We will now represent Shropshire in the regional finals held at the National Futsal arena in Birmingham on the 4th June.

Well done boys, we are so proud of your achievement tonight.

Well done to our Year 4/5 girls football team that took part in Shropshire’s U10 girls Futsal competition tonight in Shrewsbury. The girls were placed in an extremely tough group but put in some fantastic performances and finished 2nd. A very good Newport team finished top and qualified to the semi final stage after beating us 3-0. Despite Grange Park having a few chances in the match, it is fair to say the better team won and our girls learnt lots from the match. Well done girls.

cup final 2

Well done to our amazing Year 4 girls football team that competed in the Telford & Wrekin football competition this afternoon. The girls were once again fantastic and won all five matches to now reach the Telford Cup Final that will played at the home of AFC Telford United, The New Bucks Head. The girls were in a very tough group but they came through without conceding a single goal winning 2-0, 5-0, 6-0 and 4-0. This in itself was a massive achievement but what happened next topped that. Grange Park were then drawn to play another unbeaten team St Peters Edgmond in the semi final. St Peters got off to a very good start scoring within a minute of the match. This took our girls by surprise as it was the first goal they had conceded all afternoon and we nearly conceded again shortly after but our goalkeeper pulled off a fantastic one v one save. The girls then gritted their teeth and put in arguably their best performance of the day to come back and win 3-1. They fully deserved their win today and now have the Telford Cup Final to look forward to in June. Todays competition was 5-a-side but the cup final will be 7-a-side which means the two girls that unfortunately missed out today (Lacey.W & Ebony.W) but have played most of the games this season for the team will also be able to play in the cup final. All the hard work the girls have put in this season with training and friendlies has really paid off and they fully deserve all the credit they will receive. Well done girls, you have done the school proud once again. #TeamGP

Semi Final 1

Tonight our boys competed in the semi final stage of the Shropshire Schools County Cup competition at the Shrewsbury Sports Village. The standard of all the teams that reach this stage of the competition is very high and the matches on the night were extremely close. Grange Park had to play four matches tonight and went undefeated for all four but unfortunately we couldn’t find the goals to win our games and drew all of them with scores: 1-1, 0-0, 1-1, 0-0. This meant that our boys narrowly missed out on reaching the final, finishing 2nd in their group. I’m sure anyone that watched these games would agree that Grange Park dominated all four games but just couldn’t quite find the golden touch in the final third. The players did fantastic to reach this stage of the competition and on another night could quite easily of been the team that reached the final. Lots of positives to take from tonight into next seasons County Cup and the rest of this season. Well done boys.
