Football club – Y5 and 6 – practices are after school on Wednesdays – 22 children involved

Entered in Area League through WASPS (Wolverhampton Association for Sport in Primary Schools) – 52 schools involved this year in 5 groups – there are 9 schools in our group.

So far, we have played 6 league games:

v St Patrick’s [won 12-0]

v Perry Hall [won 4-3]

v St Mary’s [won 5-0]

v Loxdale [won 3-0]

v Stow Heath [lost 0-3]

v Fallings Park [lost 0-6]

We have our other fixtures organised against Wood End on March 7th and Villiers on March 15th.

One of our players (Harry Year 5) had a trial for and was selected by the District Under 10s team and is playing for them regularly at weekends. Many of our other children are involved with teams out of school too.

We participated in the Blakemore Cup (5-a-side indoor competition at Wolves’ Compton Training Ground) this term, finishing 2nd in our group which meant that we qualified for the Finals day on Thursday 14th February. We played 4 games in our group, drawing 3 and losing one, narrowly missing out on progressing to the latter stages of the competition.

We also entered a team in the Premier League Primary Stars tournament – a 6-a-side competition for girls [15th February]. Our team performed really well, winning one game, drawing another and losing 2 matches. The girls are very keen to arrange some matches against other local schools in the coming weeks.

Summer term sees the return of the Manor MAT 9-a-side Football Tournament which we hosted and won last year
