TUESDAY 14TH NOVEMBER 2017
On Tuesday 14th November, Great Missenden hosted local rivals Gateway school in an u11 league match. We started fantastically, and were 2-0 up very quickly. Gateway pulled one back before half time to set up a tense second half. Again though, we started well in the second half again and got a third goal to make it 3-1. The rest of the game was very exciting with lots of end to end action and chances for both teams. The game finished 3-1 to us but could have been a lot closer. Some fantastic saves from Cameron Shaw and all round performance from Charlie Doran were highlights, although the whole squad deserves a lot of credit for their best performance of the season. Well done!
SATURDAY 4TH NOVEMBER 2017
Miss Harris and Mr Sperring had the pleasure of taking the girls football team to Butlers Court last Saturday for the Buckinghamshire county finals. They were playing against teams who had won their own respective regional tournaments so the competition was fierce! On the day they qualified from the group stages unbeaten and went on to play Gerrards Cross in the Semi Finals. Gerrards Cross were simply the better team and the girls lost the match. HOWEVER... They were able to walk away with their heads held high as County Semi Finalists! Well done girls. We are all very proud of them.
WEDNESDAY 18th OCTOBER 2017
The team faced Chenies who had a couple of challenging strikers, meaning our defence had to work particularly well together. After a slow first half the score remained 0-0. It was clear Missenden could create the changes and in the second half things began to improve. 2 goals in quick succession ensured a comfortable 2-0 victory over the visitors.
TUESDAY 16th OCTOBER 2017
On the 16th of October the U11 football team played a league match at home against Prestwood. We played extremely well from start to finish with all 10 players contributing immensely yet again. The final score was 9-2 to Great Missenden. Well done to all the boys involved.
TUESDAY 10th OCTOBER 2017
The girls football team took part in a regional qualifier at Gerrards Cross School on the 10th October. For some of the girls, it was their first time playing a competitive game of football and they were truly brilliant! Miss Harris and Mr Sperring could not have been more proud. Their hard work in training paid off as they scored plenty of goals and finished in second place. This means they have qualified for the regional finals day at Butler Court School on November 4th. Well done girls. A very exciting season await.
THURSDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER 2017
On Thursday 28th September, the under-11 football team hosted a tournament featuring local schools such as Gateway, Waterside and Holmer Green. All the teams played each other with the top 2 teams qualifying for the next round. All 10 players in the squad played superbly well and contributed to our success. With some fantastic support from parents on the sideline, we won all 3 of our games and played some fantastic football in the process. We have now qualified for the next round which takes place at Butlers Court this Saturday. Hopefully we can be victorious here as well!
