Competitions

We are proud to compete in a variety of Level 2 and Level 3 events around Wirral and Liverpool. Here you will find brief reports about the competitions we compete in.
Tranmere Futsal Competition
3.11.21
Mr Johnson took the team to another football competition this week, inside Tranmere's community centre, to play futsal. Again, the players played with great sprit, skill and team work. After playing six different schools, they finished second in the competition, winning four, drawing one and losing one. Mr Johnson again highlighted not only the brilliant performance of the team but also their sportsmanship and behaviour. Well done boys.

Cross Country (Arrowe Park) - 21.10.21

The second cross country event of the year took place at Arrowe Park, a course which many previous runners know to be very tough.  Fortunately, the weather remained on our side throughout the event.  It was great to see previous runners coming back to compete again as well as lots of new runners coming to their first ever cross country race.  As always, our children represented our school with passion, determination and pride.  Mr Dakin, one of the event’s organisers, commended our children for their teamwork, fairness and efforts during the event.  Thanks to Mrs Coull for supporting our runners and helping to organise our team.  There will be more cross country events in the new year.

Tranmere Football Tournament – 20.10.21

Our first match was against Riverside and the final score was 2-0 to Poulton Lancelyn, with a goal scored by George and a goal scored by Mason. Unfortunately, we then had a two-match rest when the heavens opened and we got drenched to the skin! The next match was against Greasby, which we lost 1-0 due to the fact that we were all freezing cold and dripping wet. Following a further two-match break we played Birkenhead Prep after some rigorous warm up exercises and we managed a 0-0 draw. Finally, we played St Peter’s (Noc) and defeated them 4-0 with Mason scoring a hat-trick and Jack scoring the fourth magical goal. Our coach, Mr Johnson, was tremendously proud of each and every player.

Houlihan Cup (vs St. Peter’s Heswall) – 19.10.21

Last night, twelve very skilled Y6 boys took on the excellent school, St. Peter’s.  This was only our first match of the cup and the year but we treated it like any other.

It was some students’ first time representing the school and they did it amazingly.  It was a great start after being 3-0 up after ten minutes.  It finished 7-0 at half time and we were all buzzing to get more.  It was completely raining goals and we knew we could catch some more.

The other team fought hard until the end.  Their coach was very kind and never said a negative thing.  A few minutes in, we had already scored two more.  It was difficult for the other team as they did not have a set keeper but our own keeper, Jack, was great.

After the full time whistle blew, we were announced as the winners with a final score of 13-0.  We could not have done it without the wonderful coaching of Mr Johnson.  We all showed great sportsmanship and effort throughout the game and came back with the victory.

Team: Jack C, Harry D, Matt B, Noah D, Caleb B, Michael P, Toby J, Jack N, Tom G, Jake H, Charlie T, Cameron B

Cross Country Birkenhead Park
7.10.21
It was great to see children competing in the first sport event of the year this this week, at the cross country event in Birkenhead Park. Everyone raced well and it was great to see so many new faces experiencing racing for the first time. A report from two of our Year 6 runners can be read below.
Y6 Football Competition
10.6.21
After more than a year of no competitive competitions, the Year 6 football team were able to participate in the Houlihan Cup Competition held at our school. We had two teams playing, along with teams from St. Werburghs, St. Johns and Christ the King. The boys played extremely well and behaved brilliantly. Team A played 4 games, winning 2 and drawing 2, meaning they finished on 8 points. Team B won 2 games, drew 1 and lost 1 therefore they finished on 7 points. St Johns won the competition on 10 points, but all the teams were winners as they were able to play in school sport after such a long period.
