  • Year 6 football festival match report ​​​​​​​

    Published 19/10/20
    Mr Deanus and Mr Smith were delighted to be able to take the current year 6 boys to their first football tournament this year.  After a number of training sessions, the children were finally getting the opportunity to test their skills against other schools in Harrow.  Due to covid we have not been able to complete the league but Harrow set up an opportunity at the Hive facilities in Barnet on Friday 7th May. 
    The first match was against St Josephs who scored a goal in the first couple of minutes.  Despite this early set back Roxeth continued to compete all over the pitch until half time.  In the second half the game was close but St Josephs had a good move down the left that resulted in a goal.  We lost 2-0 but I would like to mention Adam in goal who made some great saves during the match to keep us in the game.
    The second match was against a very strong West Lodge team who had already won the previous match convincingly against another school.  We defended really well throughout and eventually lost the game 2-0.  You could see in the match that we were improving every minute and the boys continued to try their best, never letting their heads drop!
    The third match was against Roxbourne.  An excellent finish at the start of the match from the opposition made things very difficult to begin with.  We were looking a lot more threatening with Ayo, Jahmar and Ilyas enjoying some more possession and opportunities in front of goal.  Unfortunately, they again scored late on with another fantastic strike.  We lost the game 2-0 but I could see we were getting better! 
    The last match was against Grange School.   The boys started to play with more confidence and freedom right from the first whistle.  Some great passing led to a wonderful goal from Arman who beat a defender and powered the ball home in the bottom corner.  This gave us the confidence we needed just before half time.  In the second half Banit scored the second goal sliding the ball past the keeper after a lovely through ball from Ayo.  We eventually won the match 2-0!  The children really enjoyed their first win and it was lovely to see them make progress with every kick.
    The team’s behaviour and conduct during the tournament was excellent and they showed real maturity and resilience to never give up.  The team were as follows:  Ayo, Banit, Ajaay, Ilyas (Captain), Martin, Shyam, Arman, Adam, Bijan, Mustafa, Jahmar and Thasvin.
    The player of the tournament for Roxeth was Ajaay who made numerous last-ditch tackles in every match and worked extremely hard for the team.  His tackling showed a great desire and commitment during the all the matches.
    Thank you and well done to all the boys involved they were a credit to Roxeth Primary School.

  • Year 6 Girls Football Festival Tournament

    Published 19/10/20
    On Wednesday 6th May, the girl’s football team were invited to attend a football festival at The Hive, Barnet. The team were really excited to finally get the opportunity to play in a competitive competition for the first time this year after several training sessions.
    The first fixture was against a difficult St John Fisher team, who scored an early goal to take the lead. Roxeth showed their resilience however and put in a fantastic defensive display to keep the game at 1-0. The second half continued with more strong defensive work from the team. However St John Fisher scored 3 very quick goals to finish the game 4-0.
    Despite the defeat the team remained positive and recognised the areas they wanted to improve on. This was put into immediate effect for the next match against West Lodge where Roxeth were able to enjoy a lot more possession of the ball. Despite our best efforts going forward with some nice spells of play from Louise and Hibba, we weren’t able to break the deadlock. The game finished 0-0. Once again some excellent defensive work.
    Our next match was against Cedars Manor. This was once again a very close match with Vanshi making some very important challenges. Although the game was very close, Cedar Wood managed to squeeze in a goal making it 1-0. The team tried to get back into the game however we just ran out of time, with the game finishing 1-0.
    Our 4th match was against St Bernadette. Roxeth started the game on the front foot, with a fantastic run from Ramla down the left wing. She skipped past three of their defenders before calmly putting the ball into the back of the net. 1-0 Roxeth! St Bernadette started the 2nd half strongly and had some good spells of possession which lead to and early goal. Roxeth continued to attack in an attempt to get that winning goal but it was just not meant to be. The game finished 1-1.
    In our final game against Pinner Wood it was fantastic to see how much confidence the team had gained throughout the festival. They were able to start putting the skills that they had learned into practise with some brilliant moments going forward and in defence. However we just couldn’t get that winning goal. The game finished 0-0.
    The team were as follows: Jenna, Vanshi (Captain) Aania, Joelle, Hibba, Jessica, Louise, Ramla and Hannah. The player of the tournament was Vanshi for her positivity throughout, desire to win the ball back for her team and making lots of very important tackles.
