U9 A v The Royal School , Won – 5-3
U9B v The Royal School – Lost – 1-0

U9A v Longacre Won – 4-0
U9B v Longacre Won – 3-1

A lovely afternoon of netball to start of the new season. Despite being a little rusty the girls soon found their feet and started linking some lovely passes down the court. Both teams played against The Royal School and Longacre. The A team scored some great goals and defended well, they beat The Royal School 5-2 and beat Longacre 5-0. The B team drew against The Royal school in the first half and then lost 1-0 in the second half.. Against Longacre, the B team won 3-1. Their passes were accurate and them moved down the court well. Even when the rain came, both teams didn’t le it affect their enthusiasm and energy on court. The captains were Victoria in the A team and Meredith in the B team, they won the toss at the start of the match which gave Amesbury the advantage of first centre pass! Lady of the match in the A team was Ysabel G and in the B team Maisy G. There was a positive buzz on the courts, well played U9s. Mrs Page

 

U9B Football v Churcher’s College

For the opening game of the season the U9B’s faced a triangular tournament against Longacre and Churches. The opening game was a little bit of a wakeup call as Amesbury faced a very strong Longarce side. The enthusiasm and intention was superb with numerous attempts to play out wide, unfortunately being undone in defense as some sharp finishing and opportunistic goals were scored. A strong defensive performance helped keep the game fairly close till the final 5 minutes when the scoreboard got away from us. In the second game there was a marked improvement as the boys communicated better and held a stronger defensive structure. This helped keep the game close until a momentary lapse in concentration cost us a goal. The resilience and attitude to go back out was great and the attack started to function well. Sadly, the clock beat us on this occasion. With some great progress from a number of players there is no doubt it will be a good season. Mr O’Reilly

 

U9 A Football Triangular Tournament v Churcher’s & Longacre V Longacre

Won 3-0 v Churcher’s Drew 1-1
We began well scoring two very early goals and dominated Longacre for much of the game; however, their stylish little left winger played very well showing good touch. With Churcher’s also beating Longacre our match with them promised to be a keenly contested affair and it was shattering to concede a goal in the opening seconds. Thereafter, it was a tough contest with Churcher’s creating many clear scoring chances; however, Amesbury’s goalkeeper was in magnificent form and produced a string of excellent saves, to which he added some long clearances and it was from one of these, just a few minutes from full-time, that our striker pounced to drive home a powerful shot for a memorable equaliser.
Well played, everyone! Mr Hamilton

U8C v Churcher’s

The Amesbury U8C team began their first every football game of Year 3 with great enthusiasm and team work. Excellent running down the right flank by Freddie led to some great scoring opportunities for Amesbury. This was soon turned into goals as George took a fine goal with a super shot to the left of the opposition goalkeeper. Churcher’s put together some good attacking play of their own and soon equalised to level the game. Another Churcher’s goal and an own goal for the home side left it 2-2 at the half time break. In the second half there was some great tackling and defending from both sides to stop the scoring run. However, Churcher’s proved to be too strong on the day and ran out 4-3 winners. Congratulations to the team for a fine display and I’m sure with the same effort it will be a victory next week. Mr Tribe
