Thurrock School Sports Association Football Competition
To get the season going the team competed in a league format before progressing to the knockout stages. After a slow start drawing with Abbots Hall and losing to Purfleet the boys found their rhythm and beat Dilkes and Lansdowne with one nil victories, both goals being scored by Jesse Chetiyar. After another nil nil draw with Arthur Bugler the team progresses to the quarter finals. Here they would play Warren Primary. Caught napping the team quickly went two nil down before a thunderous shot by Tajus Girnius gave them hope. It was one way traffic after that as the team pressed for the equaliser. Sadly, it was not to be. Some consolation was gained from the fact that Warren eventually went on to win the whole competition. It was a pleasure to take the team to St. Cleres and their behaviour, effort, performance and sportsmanship was a credit to our school. Star player for his tenacity and technique was awarded to Tajus.
It is wonderful to see so many children participating in after-school sports clubs. Many clubs will give the children the opportunity to play in local school leagues. We have A and B teams entered in both Football and Netball leagues for the Autumn and Spring terms.
Many children will have had growth spurts this half term. Can parents/carers please take this opportunity to check that PE kit still fits and replace it if necessary. Children will need to bring their PE kit in to school at the start of each half term to ensure it is ready and available for all PE lessons.
