Monday Morning Tchouk Ball Club v Teachers

Monday Morning Tchouk Ball Club Won: 32 – 22

On Monday evening I received a phone call that Fareham were unable to play in the match that was planned for Tuesday after school. The team hadn’t had a match this term, so I emailed some staff that had played in the charity match last year to see if I could gather a team… The staff were keen!

There was lots of excitement from all in the warm up, the Amesbury pupils warmed up well, good passing and shooting, the staff had a super quick recap of the game! The 2 teams shook hands before the games started, wished the opposition luck and then the game got started.

At the end of the 1st third the pupils were leading 11-9, it was close. At the end of the 2nd third it was 21-13 to the Amesbury pupils and at the end of the match the pupils had stretched the lead to win 32-22.

The pupils worked so hard, there were fantastic catches on front line defence from Rory, Jake and Ollie B one end and Lucas the other end. Super shooting from Tom, Toby and Ollie and Max read the game brilliantly as centre pivot. It was wonderful to see the pupils play great Tchouk Ball, their accurate throwing and catching, team work and strong shooting shone through!

The staff tried to explain that it was only a warm up match in preparation for the charity day match… But it wasn’t, the pupils won fair and square! I am not sure there is any other sport that can be played adults v pupils competitively and fairly – there was a real buzz in the sports hall. Well played and a big thank you to the staff that took part in the match at such short notice… We definitely need more training ready for the next match!

Thank you to Mrs Waddell who was in charge of time keeping and Ottie who scored for the match.
