U11 Hockey

On Wednesday 18th March Fairfield boys U11 hockey team took part in the Leicestershire County Tournament at Leicester Grammar School. With only three teams entered and two to qualify for the Midlands Championships in April the boys had a great opportunity to progress.

The first game was against Dixie Grammar. The boys dominated territory and possession but as with many games this season struggled to put their chances away. To their credit they kept playing attacking hockey and finally managed to score mid-way through the second half. The boys stifled any genuine chances created by Dixie and held on for the victory.

In their second match they played Ratcliffe who had beaten them 4 – 0 earlier in the season. Ratcliffe were the dominant team in the first half but Fairfield defended resolutely. The half time score being 0 – 0. In a much more even second half chances were created by both teams and both goalkeepers made excellent saves. The game was heading towards a no score draw when Ratcliffe broke quickly with 30 seconds remaining scored a great team goal. The final hooter sounded but despite the loss Fairfield had finished second and will represent Leicestershire in the Midlands finals.

Well played everyone.


 

 

Netball Match Summary

Wednesday’s U11 netball match against Ratcliffe College proved to be a fine and feisty match. Ratcliffe set the pace scoring in the first minute however Fairfield were quick to reply once their feet and brains went into action. There was some splendid passing down the court into the attacking circle culminating in some excellent shooting and some well deserved goals. It was particularly pleasing to see Fairfield really challenging the opposition and meeting the ball with incisiveness and confidence. The set play from the centre pass was executed successfully which was one of the tactics the team had been working on. This was very good preparation for the Foremarke Hall tournament this Saturday. Lovely individual and team play, well done!

Rugby results: U11A

Fairfield 0  Spratton Hall 47

On Wednesday 3 December Fairfield U11A rugby team played Spratton Hall at home. The opposition were a physically big, powerful side and they took control right from the start. At half time the score was 26 – 0 to Spratton. The second half started  poorly for the home side but as the half progressed Fairfield began to control the ball and go through phases of play. For the last 10 minutes Spratton were camped in their half but despite the commitment, desire and controlled aggression from Fairfield they could not cross their try line.

The boys are now looking forward to sevens tournaments in the Spring term.


On Wednesday 26th November Fairfield U11 A team played Notts High Junior School at home. Fairfield dominated both territory and possession in the first half and deserved to take the lead with a converted try. The boys had further opportunities to score but failed to take them. Fairfield continued to play well in the second half and scored two more converted tries making the final score Fairfield 21 Notts High 0.

Well played everyone. We now need to work on moving the ball effectively away from the contact area.

Please find the attached results.


On Saturday 12th November Fairfield U11 rugby team played away at Lincroft Middle School. Despite dominating territory and possession and showing improvements in line speed, contact and in the ruck the half time score was 14 – 5 to Lincroft. Fairfield continued to play with commitment and determination in the second half but conceded three more converted tries due to missed tackles. The final score was 35 – 5 to Lincroft but Fairfield can take away a number of positives and look forward to their next game with increased confidence.

Please find the attached results


 

Fairfield U9 A Vs Grace Dieu Manor U9 A

This was the boys first home fixture. Their focus was to try and use the width of the pitch. Grace Dieu proved to be strong opponents, however Fairfield gave it their all. The score was very tight throughout. At 6 trys to 6, the game could have gone either way. However, Grace Dieu had a strong finish. The game finished Fairfield 7 trys – Grace Dieu 9 trys. Our focus for coming training sessions is to work on our tackling.


On Wed 15 October Fairfield U11 A team played Oakham at Quorn. Fairfield started slowly and once again missed tackles resulted in an early converted try for the opposition. Fairfield responded quickly with a converted try of their own and then scored a second converted try just before half time. The team were playing with greater confidence and skill after the break and scored four more tries, three of which were converted. Oakham scored a consolation try towards the end of the match making the final score 40 – 14 to Fairfield.

In terms of continuity and phase play this was by far their best performance of the season. They must, however, continue to work on defensive line speed and accuracy of passing.


Year 6 Girls’ Hockey vs The Elms, Wednesday 8th October

Both the A and B squads travelled, in torrential rain,  to play The Elms. The B team got off to a super start and scored a well taken goal shortly into the first half. Their defence remained strong and mange to cope with any attack from the opposition. In the second half, they created further chances and were unlucky not to score a second goal. A strong defence denied any counter attack from the opposition and the score finished 1-0 to Fairfield. The A team also played some excellent attacking hockey and were unlucky not to go one up within the first five minutes of the match. They continued to apply pressure in the Elms goal and were eventually rewarded with a well taken strike mid way through the second half. Well played to all the girls involved and a big thank you to the parents who came to support.

Year 6 Girls’ Hockey Rugby School Tournament 24/09/2014

The girls travelled to Rugby School to compete in the annual U11 tournament. The day began with an excellent coaching session led by Matt Taylor (MT13) from Beeston Hockey Club. It provided a fantastic opportunity for the team to work with other girls and develop new skills. After lunch, they were eager for the tournament to get underway and warmed up with great enthusiasm. The entire team played every match with determination and commitment beyond their years, working tirelessly in both attack and defence. On and off the pitch, their support for each other was evident and this culminated in no goals being conceded in open play. Following completion of the pool games, Fairfield topped their group (seven schools) and went on to play Witham Hall in the semi-final. After ten, very intensely fought minutes, the score remained at 0-0. This led to a barrage of three penalty strokes, with Witham coming out on top, scoring one from three. Fairfield finished joint third overall, an outstanding achievement for the team and something on which we can continue to build on in preparation for forthcoming matches and tournaments. Congratulations to all the girls involved.

Football Match Summary

Following an unbeaten start to the season, the 1st XII travelled to the annual ISFA Regional Football Tournament at Repton on Wednesday in confident mood. Despite knowing the standard would be extremelyhigh, the boys knew that the top two out of 13 teams would qualify for the national finals at St. George’s Park: the new home of English Football. We got off to a sluggish start with a 0-0 draw against Monmouth Prep and quicklyrealised we’d have to raise our game in order to succeed. Our second pool match saw a marked improvement and a 2-0 victory against Eversfield Prep, before
another 0-0 draw against Witham Hall. Our next game would be against RGS The Grange – last year’s National Champions. We fell behind early on but produced an outstanding second-half display to level the match at 1-1, becoming the only team to take points off the pre-tournament favourites. With two pool games to go we knew we needed two victories to ensure second place in the group and qualify for the semi-finals. We defeated King’s Hawford 1-0 before putting 5 goals past Blue Coat without reply to make it through the group stage. In the semi-final we came up against Hallfield (Mr Outwin-Flinder’s new school) knowing a victory would put us through to the Nationals. Their quick movement and excellent passing game tested our resolute defence, but an incisive counter-attack gave us the break we needed and we hung on to a memorable 1-0 victory. RGS The Grange would meet us again in the final, and again the two sides would struggle to break each other down. After 0-0 in normal time and extra time, the match went to penalties. Matthew Hull (6J) saved their first penalty, meaning strikes from Andrew Jones (6B), Jackson McLandish (5R) and Tom
Horsnall (6A) secured Fairfield the trophy. St. George’s Park…here we come.

Rugby Match Summary

On Sunday 2nd March Fairfield U11 A rugby squad took part in the National Schools Rugby Tournament at Epsom College. Having had an undefeated 12  a side season during the Autumn Term this was their opportunity to test themselves against the best rugby playing Preparatory Schools in the country.The first pool match was against St Thomas’s, Clapham. From the start Fairfield were intent on playing with intensity and attacking flair. Having won possession the team always looked dangerous and deservedly won the match 4 tries to 1. A great start to the tournament. The second pool game was against Warwick Prep who have always had a strong rugby pedigree. It was a very close game with both teams demonstrating super ball handling, skilful running and pace along with a determined and resolute defence. The final score was 3 tries to 2 in favour of Warwick. A disappointing result as there was nothing to choose between the teams but still plenty of positives to take from the game into our last pool match.

Fairfield knew a win against St John’s, Northwood would guarantee a place in the last 16 of the competition. There was still a possibility that Fairfield could top the group as bonus points were awarded for teams scoring 4 tries or more in a game. After a tight couple of minutes the game opened up with both teams intent on attacking. With the score at 2 each it looked as if the result could go either way. Fairfield then put phase after phase together and played some scintillating rugby. St John’s could not cope with the brilliance of Fairfield’s attack and as the final whistle blew the score was 7 tries to 2 to Fairfield.Unfortunately Warwick had topped the group with Fairfield going through to the last 16 as runners up. This was the knockout stage of the competition. Fairfield had to play the winners of Group 8 which were Denmead School  from Middlesex. Fairfield dominated territory and possession in the first half but were unable to score. Denmead then dominated territory and possession in the second half and scored two tries in the closing moments of the match.

Despite the defeat Fairfield could hold their heads up high and be really proud of their performances and were great ambassadors for the school. To be grouped in the top 16 Prep schools in any national competition is a fantastic achievement and great reward for all of the boys efforts throughout the season.

 Netball Match Summary

On Sunday 2nd March the year 5 rugby and netball teams participated int the prestigious Oakham tournament. The girls played against a variety of schools, all who proved to be tough opposition. The team enjoyed large periods of possession in their games but just couldn’t string together the final passes to get them into a position to score. Unfortunately they did not secure a victory in the mornings matches and were placed into the spoon competition for the afternoon. Here they started to play much better and showed their true potential, winning the first game 2-0 against St Cedds. They then played St Johns , who had beaten us 6-1earlier in the competition. The Fairfield team were on a high from their first win and took an early 2 goal lead. They maintained their momentum and worked hard all over the court to regain possession, securing a 5-1 victory and the title of spoon winners! Following the competition the presentation took place and Austin Healey was on hand to hand out the trophies. On the day we were impressed by our players attitudes and ability to adapt to different positions, but a special mention should go to Isabel Archer who was named as player of the match in 2 of the games by the umpires, well done.

Rugby Results

On Sat 15 March Fairfield U11 7’s team played in the Bromsgrove 7’s.

The first match was against a well organised Abberley Hall team. Unfortunately Fairfield picked up two injuries in the first half and this affected our approach to the game. Abberley eventually ran out comfortable 21 – 0 winners.

The second match was against Solihull School. The team raised their game and played attractive attacking rugby. The final score was 28 – 7 to Fairfield.

As pool runners up we then played the host school Bromsgrove in the quarter finals. The teams were very even with neither side able to break the others defence. The final score was 0 – 0 and the game went into a golden try situation. Despite frantic defensive tackles the boys could not keep out a sustained attack from Bromsgrove who crossed the line for the winning try. Once again there was little to choose between the teams and Fairfield were unlucky to exit the competition.

Well done to all that took part and the boys were a credit to themselves and the school.


U11 Girls Regional Hockey Finals, Cannock HC, Tuesday 18th March 2014

The girls travelled to Cannock determined to put in a strong performance in what was their final fixture in this year’s hockey calendar. Both team spirit and work rate were apparent from the first whistle and they showed great versatility in playing in numerous different positions throughout the day. The results of the matches were as follows:

FFD vs Bablake 2-0 win

FFD vs Beachborough 2-0 lose

FFD vs RGS Grange 1-0 lose

FFD vs The Elms 1-0 win

FFD vs Chase GS 4-0 win

FFD vs Grosvenor 1-0 win

The results placed the girls third in their group with 12 points. The top two, RGS Grange and Beachborough, progressed through to the semi-finals and were the eventual winners and runners-up of the entire competition. This highlighted that the girls had certainly played in a much tougher pool and should be justifiably proud of their performance.

Many thanks to all the parents who came to support and to Ms Nicol for umpiring all their matches, it was lovely to have her back!

 Hockey Results 18/03/2014

Team Opposition Venue Result
U11 A Newcastle Cannock D: 0-0
U9 ‘B’ William Gilbert D: 1-1
U8 Stoneygate W: 3-0

On Tuesday 18th March Fairfield represented Leicestershire in the Midland In2Hockey Championships at Cannock Hockey Club. Our pool results are above.

This meant we qualified for the Quarter Finals where we played Bilton Grange (Warwickshire champions). Unfortunately we conceded an early goal from a penalty corner and despite playing the better hockey for the rest of the match Fairfield were unable to take their chances and lost 1 – 0.

Fairfield then played Caroline Chrisholm from Northamptonshire. Scoring goals again proved difficult even though the whole game was played in the opposition half. The final score was 0 – 0 but it was clear that Fairfield were the better side.  Although disappointed the boys played very well and can be proud of the fact they are ranked equal 5th in the Midlands.


Under 9 Loughborough Schools Football Tournament:

After an unbeaten season, Fairfield’s Year 4 boys were looking to add the Loughborough & District Primary Schools U9 title to their ever-growing  trophy cabinet. The B team started with a tough opener, going down 3-1 to a strong Holywell outfit. They bounced back immediately, drawing 1-1 against Outwoods Edge to finish with 1 point from the group stages and qualify for the Plate competition. The A side got off to a superb start, defeating both Robert Bakewell and Rendall by five goals to nil to top their group and qualify for the Cup competition. In the Plate round-robin the B team secured a great 2-0 win against Cobden before a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Robert Bakewell. Their 4 points and +2 goal difference was enough to top the mini-league and bring home the Plate! Over on the blue pitch, Fairfield A team put Holywell to the sword with an emphatic 4-0 victory, and repeated the scoreline against Newcroft to clinch the Cup with an outstanding record of played 4, won 4, scored 18, conceded 0! A fabulous morning’s football, and immense enjoyment for all involved.

On Wednesday 2nd July Maddy Wood (U12 High Jump), Shayna Kalyan (U12 Discus), Indienne King (U12 800m), Felix Martin (U12 Shot), Andrew Jones (U12 800m and 4 x 100m Relay), Oscar Le Jeune, Jack Wood and Ben Wells (4 x 100m Relay) took part in the National Prep School Athletics finals at Alexander stadium, Birmingham. This being only the second year that Fairfield has entered this competition to have both individual athletes and a relay team qualify for the National finals is a fantastic achievement. The children were outstanding in both their performance and the way in which they represented the school.

All the children deserve praise for reaching the finals but a special mention must go to Maddy Wood for smashing her personal best in the High Jump to finish second having cleared 1.40m, Shayna Kalyan threw 18.60m to finish 4th in the Discus and the boys 4 x 100m relay team who finished 5th in the final.
