Cross Country

Last Saturday, 16 children from Years 3 to 6 competed in the Cross Country event at Stratford. In spite of the cold, wet weather and the muddy conditions, they performed admirably. The Year 3 girls were particularly well supported and we are delighted to announce that Izzy came 3rd and the team of Izzy, Scarlet and Lois won the team award with 19 points.

Cross Country

A busy week of sport saw a team of Year 5 girls compete in the first cross country race of the season. They performed admirably with Lottie finishing 9th, Eve 11th, Serena 25th and Emily 26th. The next event will be at the Stratford Recreation Ground on Saturday 18th November starting at 11am. It will be open to all boys and girls from Year 3 to Year 6 and anyone may enter.

On Monday, we entered a mixed Year 3/4 five a side football tournament at Kineton High School. Claverdon played some super football in very strong winds but were unable to find the back of the net on this occasion.

On Wednesday, two Claverdon teams with boys from Year 4, 5 and 6 entered the ESFA Under 11s area tournament down the road at Ajax Park. The Blue Team put up a great fight against some big, strong opposition and came away with a win, a draw and 3 losses.. The Yellow team were delighted and surprised to hear they had won their group and were through to the semi-finals. A thrilling match ensued against The Willows, but one goal was enough for the team from Stratford to make it into the finals against Wellesbourne, last year’s champions.

After school today, we will be taking two teams of girls from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 to compete in the ESFA Under 11s area tournament. We wish them all the best and hope they enjoy the competition.
