01.12.2021 - Girls' Football Fixture v Mount Charles


On Wednesday, we welcomed Mount Charles School to play in a girls’ football match. The game was played in horrendous conditions and many of our school values were on display, particularly this week's focus of teamwork which was very strongly highlighted!


The girls (including the large number who kept score, supported and cheered from the side) had to endure a strong wind and very heavy rain and hail showers. However, this didn't deter them and they all put in an excellent performance against equally determined opposition.


The match itself was very closely contested with the majority of the game being played in midfield where Faith, Sianna, Isla and Lilliana all won numerous tackles and made some great passes. When Mount Charles did attack, they were neutralised by a combination of superb defending from Macey, Alyssa and Lily and some outstanding goal keeping from Poppy. The first half ended 0 - 0.

In the second half, we had the wind at our backs and the girls took full advantage. After 20 minutes, the ball broke loose in the opposition box and Eva slotted home to give us the lead. Five minutes later, the visitors equalised after a goalmouth scramble. The game seemed to be heading for a draw until Lacey struck a low, right footed finish into the bottom left corner to win us the game 2 - 1.


Thank you very much (and sorry!) to all of those who came along to support our team in such treacherous conditions!


Team: Poppy J, Lily S, Alyssa, Macey T, Eva M, Lilliana, Isla K, Sianna, Lacey K and Faith.


The photo was taken in dry conditions the next day so Lacey isn’t in the photo, but was a great team player!


24.11.2021 - Clay Netball Fixture v Treverbyn


On Tuesday, St Dennis netball team welcomed Treverbyn School for only our second match of the season. We have been learning new skills in our training sessions and were keen to show them in our home match, watched by lots of supporters!


In all four quarters, we were strong in attack and moved the ball around the court quickly. Treverbyn played well and intercepted some passes down the court. We knew we had to mark our opposition players more effectively and were able to do this in the final two quarters. Keeping a calm head, St Dennis netballers achieved a rousing 3 - 1 win.

Congratulations to Katie, Sianna, Amelia, Poppy, Wendy, Eva, Lily, Lacey and Lainey for an inspiring performance!


24.11.2021 - Clay Football Fixture v Treverbyn


On Tuesday, we hosted Treverbyn School in the latest round of Clay Country Fixtures.

The Year 3 / 4 team were first up, but unfortunately we came up against excellent opposition who won the game 3 - 0. Our team put up a great effort though and were very unlucky not to score a goal or two of our own!

Team: Theo, Archie, Jude, Ethan H, Alfie H, Tyler, Mia and  Isabelle.


The Year 5 / 6 match followed and this was a game of two halves! Noah put us 2 - 0 ahead before Lucas G almost made it three, but for a fine save from the visiting keeper. In the second half, Treverbyn fought back to 2 - 2 and in the closing moments snatched a 3 - 2 win!

Team: Kyran, Lucas G, Mason, Noah R, Lucas B, Shane, Declan and  Jude.


Thank you very much to everyone who came along to support. That is the end of the fixtures for this year and they will resume on the 11th of January, when we will play Whitemoor away.


16.11.2021 - Girls' Team Match v Charlestown


On Tuesday, we welcomed Charlestown to our school to play in a girl's football match. This was the first ever game that any of our girls had experienced and taking this into consideration, a score line of a 3 - 0 win was an exceptional result. The goals were scored by Lacey (2) and Macey. All of our players displayed great discipline in holding their positions and they all showed excellent tackling and passing skills. The work rate was superb and most importantly, they all played with smiles on their faces!

Team: Lacey, Amelia B, Eva M, Lainey, Poppy J, Macey, Isla K, Sianna and Mia W


As ever, we had many spectators cheering on the team. Thank you for your continued support!


09.11.2021 - Clay Football Fixture v Bugle


On Tuesday, we welcomed Bugle to our school to play in the latest round of Clay Country football fixtures. Two exciting and closely fought games were played out by two very determined teams.


First up was the Y3 / 4 match and this was against good opposition who created lots of opportunities to score. However, many of these were thwarted due to great goal keeping from Theo and some excellent defending from Archie and Blake. Eventually, Bugle did manage to break the deadlock and scored two goals midway through the first half to lead 2 - 0 at the break. After the interval, we managed to create a few chances of our own and Jude was a constant threat when running at their defence. Tyler, Ethan, Logan and Mia all battled extremely hard in midfield and a minute from the end, Luke passed to Jude who went past two or three players before finishing well. Unfortunately, we couldn't quite find an equaliser and the visitors ran out as 2 -1 winners.

Team: Theo, Archie, Luke, Jude, Blake, Tyler, Logan, Ethan H and Mia W.


The second match was equally entertaining. The visitors took the lead almost immediately with a brilliant team goal. Two minutes later, Mason made a great save to preserve our lead before their goal keeper pulled off a superb double save to deny Jude. Shortly after, Jude hit the post and Noah rattled the crossbar from long range. There was then a flurry of goals as Noah scored three in quick succession before Bugle pulled one back. We were slightly fortunate to score another on the stroke of half time through an own goal to make it 4 - 2. After the break, we bombarded the visitors' goal with numerous attempts from Lucas, Jude and Noah, but an inspired performance from their keeper kept them in the game. Slightly against the run of play, Bugle did score to make it 4 - 3 but they couldn't find an equaliser due to some brilliant tackles and blocks from Shane, Declan and Oliver.

Team: Mason, Oliver, Jude, Shane, Declan, Lucas and Noah R.


Thank you to everyone who caame along to support our teams. Our next fixtures are on Tuesday 23rd November when we will host Treverbyn.
