Wednesday, 25 January 2012

Students from St John Bosco Primary School proved themselves to be netball champions of the area after triumphing in the annual Stuart Bathurst Tournament today.
The tournament was a hotly contested affair with St John Bosco taking two teams to compete against all of the other Catholic Primary Schools in Sandwell.
Both teams enjoyed unbeaten runs through the group phases, team A enjoying 2 comfortable victories and a 0 – 0 draw to reach the final with Christopher Law, Victoria Loa, Luke Whitehouse and Megan Hill all on the scoresheet. Team B also reached the final despite one loss as they won their other two games 1 – 0 Ethan Green the scorer of the decisive goal on both occasions.
As is so often the case fate brought the two St John Bosco teams together in the final and on this occasion it was Team A who were comfortable winners by 5 goals to nil thanks to a hat-trick from Chris Law and brace from Luke Whitehouse.
Miss Ellicott was extremely proud of the effort, sportsmanship and achievements of both teams and to be the top two teams playing really was an amazing outcome.

The football team from St John Bosco Primary School continued their excellent run of form with two wins in the space of three days to take their winning run to four games in total. Friday 13th January proved to be anything but unlucky as they took on local rivals St Mary’s Catholic Primary from Wednesbury and in a closely matched affair came out as 2 – 1 winners with both goals being scored by Mitchell Wilkinson.

On Monday the opponents were St Mary Magdalen Primary from West Bromwich and this turned out to be something of a classic with St Mary’s taking the lead on no less than 3 occasions only for each time St John Bosco striker Alfie Harwood, the youngest player on the pitch, to find an equaliser. The completion of his hat-trick making the score 3 – 3.

The game was evenly competed throughout but with around 10 minutes left Christopher Law found the back of the net with an unstoppable shot to make the result a 4 – 3 win for St John Bosco.

Both games were a fantastic advert for primary school football with the effort and attitude of the players from all three schools involved absolutely superb.
