Tuesday 25th June 2019 – Hockey Tournament
On the mild Tuesday 25th June , a team (Sam, Lauren, Xander, Dillon, Tessa, Henry, Ned, Myrtle) made up of children from Years 5 and 6 took part in a Stratford Hockey Club tournament at Stratford Upon Avon School astro. We played five matches and each were 15 minutes one way.
Our first game we played was against St Mary’s (eventual winners) and unfortunately we lost 3-0 despite the whole team trying their best throughout the game.
In the next game we triumphantly scored our first goal by Dillon but sadly lost the game to Bridgetown (runner’s up) 3-1.
In our third match we scored our second goal in the tournament against Wooten Wawen which we won 1-0.
Next up we played Alveston 1 which we drew 2-2 scoring our next two goals in our fourth game.
In our last game we scored our last goal against Alveston 2 but still unfortunateLy lost 3-1.
Despite our amazing efforts Ettington came 5th overall and really enjoyed the opportunity to play in a hockey tournament.
Mrs Smith was very proud of the team considering most of the children had never played hockey before and they were playing against Schools who had been receiving coaching at their PE lessons.
Tuesday 26th March – Football Tournament
On Tuesday 26th March at 3.30pm the super Ettington football team played at Racing Club Warwick football club. It was a six a-side games there were five opponents: Warwick girls, Stratford, Wooton, Willows and Quinton.
We played five games and in our first game we won 1-0 against Quinton with Ned, who made an amazing left foot cross, creating an assist for Jack to score a marvellous top corner header. In the second game, we won 3-0 against Wootton with Jack, who scored 2 amazing goals, and Ned with scoring 1. Following on from that, in game 3 we sadly drew 0-0 against Warwick girls due to excellent defensive play.
With the end in sight, we reached the penultimate game 4, our toughest game in the tournament. Despite all of our effort, at the end of the game the scores cam in … 1-0 to Willows.
The finals were finally here, however everyone was both physically and mentally exhausted as the whistle blew for the start of the game. Despite Ettington battling for victory we lost 1-0 due to there all round excellent play. After all of this we managed to receive bronze after conceding only two goals! After a long 2 hour tournament the football heroes went home to a well-deserved rest. Well done, keep it up!
This excellent team of footie legends were: Jack, Xander, Ned, Thomas, Archie, Harvey and Josh!!!

On Thursday 11th October the Ettington Year 6 football team competed against 4 other teams and achieved an amazing, triumphant success. They played 4 breath taking matches, each lasting 7 minutes long. Astonishingly, they won 3 tiring matches and only drew one match, which was 0-0. Ned scored 2 goals and Josh headed in a perfectly executed cross into the back of the net! This gave a 3-0 win in the second game. In the next game Joe scored after a brilliant dribble to give the team a 1-0 win, and in the final game Ned scored again to give a second hard fought 1-0 win. Unsurprisingly, we won the tournament and qualified for the regional event! With our talented and excellent goal keepers Freddie and Archie, we didn’t concede a goal which enabled us to win the tournament and progress.
