Premier League National Football Tournament

Regional Finals


On Wednesday, 16th March, the St Pius X football team excitedly travelled to London to compete in a football tournament.  As we had won the previous tournament in Chelmsford last week, we were invited to play against other regional winners to see who would represent West Ham in the Premier League National League Final in May.


After half an hour of warming up we were ready and we ran onto the pitch for our first game.  The whistle blew for kick off and we passed the ball back to the defence, then we were on the attack but sadly missed the shot.  Suddenly, after many chances, the other team counter attacked and scored.  The referee signalled for the end of the match.  The score was 0-1 to the opposition.


After that game we didn’t drop our heads and straight away we were on the pitch again ready for our second match.  The referee signalled the start and we took the kick off.  We were on the attack but hit the post.  Both teams battled but just couldn’t score before the whistle blew.  The score was 0-0.


We had a two match rest before we played again.  This time the opposition had the kick off and they attacked straight away and we conceded a goal, but we were still positive that we could win.  We were always attacking but just couldn’t score.  It was the end of the match.  The score was 0-1 to the opposing side.


We had a ten minute rest and then we were on the pitch for our final match.  The game began, but sadly we conceded a goal and after that another, then another.  It was full time, the score was 0-3.


We played some tough teams but it was a fantastic experience and everyone enjoyed the occasion.

Heathcote v St Pius X

18th March 2016


On Friday, 18th March the St Pius X football team played a match against Heathcote School.  When we were all warmed up and ready to start, Heathcote kicked off, but straight away we were on the attack.  Shortly after that Number 4 scored a goal and the score was 0-1!  We tried to score another goal quickly and with Number 4 on the attack again he did score.  Heathcote kicked off again but lost possession and we started to counter attack and due to mistakes from Heathcote they scored an own goal!  It was then half time and the score was 0-3.


We were ready to kick off the second half and for about 10 minutes the play was up and down the pitch until we won a free kick right outside the penalty box.  Number 3 took it and passed to Number 7 who slotted it home.  Finally Number 10 scored our last goal.  The score at the end was 5-0 to St Pius.  Well done to everyone as everyone played very well.

On Tuesday, 22nd March, two children from Year 6 attended the second afternoon of the year for children from the different primary schools in the Chelmsford area who have been identified as having potential in PE and school sport, at Melbourne Sports & Athletics Centre.


Throughout the afternoon they had three different sports to try:- tennis, netball and gymnastics.


In tennis they learnt how to control the ball and then they played a few matches.


The next activity was netball and they learnt the rules very quickly and went straight into a match and their team won 6-2!


Finally they had the chance to try gymnastics and at the end of the session they made a human pyramid with 4 layers!


One of the children quoted “We had such fun and enjoyed the afternoon very much.”


The final afternoon of Rising Stars for these children will be held in May.

Great Leighs v St Pius X

23rd March 2016



On Wednesday, 23rd March, the St Pius X netball team travelled to Great Leighs to play the second league match of the year.


After about 5 minutes of practising we were ready to start the match.  Great Leighs started with the ball but they were too strong for us and they scored.  We fought back with a brilliant shot by TK.  There was a lot more battling but at half time Great Leighs were winning.


In the second half of the match we started with the ball.  We quickly had a great chance to score but we missed.  Great Leighs fought back and scored again.  We tried our best but we did not score any more goals.


Unfortunately we lost the match but we tried our very best and had lots of fun.  We hope to do well in our upcoming matches.
