Y5/6 Boys Football Match

Today after school, our Year 5/6 boy’s football team played in a friendly against Grange Park. There were a number of debutants in our line-up; who have impressed in football club this year and this was there opportunity to display what they could do in a competitive match. Hollinswood started the game on fire with great link up play down the right wing, which resulted in SJ scoring with a looping, long-range shot. Grange Park responded directly from kick-off and scored to make it 1-1. Hollinswood then picked up their form and dominated for the rest of the game finishing with an 8-2 score line thanks to five goals from Cameron and the others coming from Max and Joe.

Well done boys you were unstoppable!

Y5/6 Sportshall Athletics

This afternoon our Year 5/6 athletics team competed in the Cluster Sportshall Athletics competition, which was hosted at Telford Park School. This cluster event was for the local schools near Hollinswood so it included Grange Park, Randlay and Windmill and was great preparation for the upcoming Telford & Wrekin Sportshall Athletics Competition in November. There were a range of track and field events for the children to compete against each other in, including standing jump, javelin and a host of relays races. Both our boys and girls teams finished second, which meant we took 2nd place overall in the competition. They were all amazing and we look forward to the main event coming up next month.

Well done team!

What a Game!

Today, our Year 5/6 girls took on Lawley Primary School in a friendly football match, which turned out to be a thriller! Conditions were very blustery but both teams handled it very well and the game started very evenly with both teams having a fair share of possession but not many chances were testing out either goalkeeper. The breakthrough came in the dying seconds of the first half as Lawleys number 10 had a long range effort, which sailed into our goal with a bit of help from the wind! Lawley doubled their lead to make it 2-0 not long after half time, which caused our girls to raise their games. A goal from Paris to make the score 2-1 put us back into contention of salvaging something from the game and in the last minutes of the match, Lawley were penalised for handball in the area, resulting in a penalty. Paris stepped up and calmly slotted the ball past the opposing goalkeeper for the equalising goal. The game finished 2-2 with our girls showing great resilience to come back from 2 goals down to draw the game.

Well done girls!

KS1 Multiskills Event

This afternoon we took 16 keen and young sportspeople to Telford Park School to participate in a KS1 multiskills mini Olympics event, which was hosted by the Telford & Wrekin School Sports Partnership. This event gave our children a great opportunity to not only try out a range of different sporting activities including basketball, football and horse riding (on a space hopper of course!) but it also gave the pupils a chance to socialise with children from other schools within the local area. Our children had a fantastic time and showed everyone just how well behaved children at Hollinswood Primary School are!

We look forward to the next event!

Y5/6 Boys Central Football League

After the fantastic preparation our Year 5/6 boys football had last week against Old Park, today they travelled to Telford Priory School to compete in the Telford & Wrekin Central Football League. This is a huge competition as almost every school within Telford enters it so the competition has to be held over 4 different days. We were drawn into group 2 along with St. Peter’s Bratton, Randlay and Lilleshall. Our first match was against Lilleshall, it started very scrappy with not much football being played but we took an early lead thanks to Harvey. Lilleshall then started to come into the game and scored two goals to take them into a 2-1 lead at half time but after the interval, our boys dominated proceedings and scored two late goals to finish with a 3-2 win.

Our next game against Randlay finished 0-0 as both teams had chances, but neither could convert any so we both took a point from that match. Our final game was against St Peter’s Bratton, we started very well taking a 1-0 lead but a lapse in concentration allowed St Peter’s to equalise in the dying seconds of the match. Due to other results we finished second in group 2 with 5 points meaning we qualified for the next round, we are now awaiting confirmation of who we are playing in the next round!

Well done boys, great effort!

Y5/6 Boys Football Match vs. Old Park

Today after school, our Y5/6 boys’ football team travelled to Old Park Primary School to play their first match of the year. This was a friendly football match, for both teams to prepare for the Telford & Wrekin football league which is happening next week. From the start, our team played a very high tempo, short passing game on a very tight pitch, which caused the Old Park defence problems and we went into the half-time break with a comfortable 3-0 lead thanks to two goals from Rio and the other from Harvey. We continued our ‘total football’ display throughout the match and we managed to score another 4 fantastic team goals in the second half with Thomas scoring two, Leyland and Lucas adding to the tally meaning we finished the game as 7-0 winners. It was great to see the fluidity of passing from this team and they are raring to go for the tournament next week.

Well done boys, you were spectacular!

Y5/6 Girls Cluster Local Derby!

After the defeat to Redhill a couple of days ago, our Year 5/6 girls were back in Cluster League action against Randlay Primary School, with whom we have a great and friendly sporting rivalry with. Hollinswood girls started the game with their usual attacking style of play and made their first clear chance count as Paris gave us a 1-0 lead after breaking from midfield with the ball and placing it into the bottom corner of the Randlay goal from close range. We carried our lead into the second half and doubled it midway through the half, thanks to a thunderous strike from Georgina; into the bottom corner of the goal, from the edge of the penalty box. Our Defence kept the Randlay attacks at bay for the majority of the game, but in the dying seconds they had a great chance to score but debutant Emily pulled off a fine save and the game finished 2-0. Our girls were ecstatic to get their first 3 points onto the board and look forward to their next match.

Y5/6 Girls Cluster League

Today our Year 5/6 girls’ football team kicked off their cluster league campaign against Redhill Primary school. The cluster league involves 6 other schools that we have to play against in a league system over the next few months, to see who will have the bragging rights within the local area! Our girls were very high in confidence after their Crossbar Tournament victory last week and this showed in the first half of the game as we played some fantastic attacking football but went into the half-time interval 1-0 down with the Redhill goalkeeper pulling off some great saves. In the second half, our girls continued to pressurise the Redhill goal looking for the equaliser but the Redhill girls caught us on the counter attack and doubled their lead and managed to hold out for the 2-0 win. Our girls deserved far more than that from the game as their performances were terrific but confidence is still high and they are raring to go for their next game.

Well done girls you were excellent!

Off To A Flyer!

This evening our Y5/6 girls football team competed in a mini Crossbar Coaching tournament, along with Newdale and Old Park; all for a top prize – which was a brand new football kit kindly donated by Crossbar Coaching! We kicked off the tournament with a close fought game against Old Park. The opposing team started very brightly; putting pressure on our defence but Christabel and Ruby were well up for the challenge and kept the Old Park attackers at bay. As the game went on we began to play our free-flow attacking football which left Old Park stunned as goals from Paris and Alicia secured a 2-0 victory for Hollinswood. Newdale and Old Park played the next match, which was again a very even battle but Old Park came out with a 1-0 win. After our fantastic start, this meant we only needed a draw in our final game against Newdale to secure the golden prize but our girls didn’t rest on their laurels and within the first few seconds Georgina poked the ball into Newdales net from inside the area. Newdale’s response was instant as they equalised almost straight from kick-off to make it 1-1. Again, our girls raised the tempo of their play and Paris netted the winner with a fantastic strike from the edge of the penalty area, which crept into the bottom corner of the goal. Our 2-1 victory meant the girls won the football kit and we will be wearing it next week as we start our Cluster League campaign.

Well done girls you were excellent!
