ISA London North Football Finals (Under 11 Tournament) League Results - Thursday 14 January
Twenty-eight teams competed in the London North finals. There were 4 Leagues of 7 teams with the winners and second place qualifying for a place in the quarter-finals.
|St James Junior||2||Gateway||1||Harry N|
|Rushmoor||0||3||Harry S, Brandon N-T, Adam Y|
|Southbank Int A||2||1||Harry S|
|Swamingnarayan||0||4||Adam Y 4|
|Windrush Valley B||1||5||Harry S, Harry N 2, Joss K, Brandon N-T|
|Gatehouse A||3||1||Brandon N-T|
|This was almost a repeat performance of last year’s B team performance ; the squad played extremely well, beating several A teams along the way and scoring 15 goals in 6 games. The year 5 players rose to the occasion competing fiercely for the ball to win possession and this will prove invaluable experience when they compete again, next year. The team narrowly missed qualifying for the quarter-finals, by one point, which was frustrating as they'd had several good chances to draw two of their other matches The boys were disappointed not to reach the quarter finals but can be proud of their performance and exemplary behaviour.|
Squad: Stan C, Adam Y, Joss K, Guy J, Harry N, Harry S, Brandon N-T.
|Southbank Int B||0||Gateway||9||Hector C 6, Cormac N 2, Alex P|
|Trevor Robert B||1||1||Hector C|
|Normanhurst A||0||6||Hector C, Alex P 2, Cormac N, Jack W, Ollie L|
|Abercorn B||0||4||Alex P, Ollie L, Jack W, Cormac N|
|St Teresa’s A||2||2||Alex P, Hector C|
|Gower A||1||3||Jack W, Ollie L, Alex P|
Gateway A remained unbeaten in the league stages scoring 27 goals in their 6 league matches and conceding 4, reflecting their strength in all aspects of the pitch. Despite this there were still areas that the team needed to improve on. A couple of lapses in concentration allowed both Trevor Roberts and St Teresa’s to equalise when Gateway had done enough to win. This allowed St Teresa’s to top the league with Gateway as runners up. Both teams qualified for the quarter-finals.

|Last year a strong Gateway side lost 4-0 , to the eventual winners, in the quarter final; several of this year’s squad had played in that match and wanted rid themselves of this disappointment and make amends by making it to the semi-finals. This they did in style, playing some great passing football and slicing through the opposition to fire home 4 goals.|
|SF King Alfred’s||1||Gateway||3||Ollie L 2, Hector C|
|The semi-final was as exciting as the previous match but proved to be the most physical and bruising encounter with several players leaving the pitch nursing injuries or from plain exhaustion. This match was a great display of team work, James Garner made some more fantastic saves while clinical finishing from the forwards fired Gateway into the final.|
The final match against Gatehouse, old adversaries, proved another tough encounter. It was hard to watch as the boys competed fiercely, trying to get their game going but running low on energy. They chased the game but Gatehouse passed the ball slickly and created a string of good chances, scoring first after 5 minute and adding a second towards the end. Gateway did break through and might have scored but some fine keeping and defending meant Gatehouse hung on to their lead and finished worthy winners.
The 4 top teams progress to the National Finals in March at the Dixie Grammar School. Well done to all the boys Hector C, James G, Ollie L, Cormac N, Alex P, Jack W. Thanks go to King Alfred’s for organising the event and to the Gateway Supporters’ Club for their encouragement and help, during the day, in what were very icy conditions. HJ/KC/TN
HOUSE FOOTBALL 2016
125 children, from years 3, 4, 5 and 6. participated in this year’s House football competition.
Most year groups braved the cold January conditions. Y3 and Y6 were restricted to playing 5-a-side matches on the astro-turf pitch at Gateway, due to waterlogged and frozen ground whilst years 4 and 6 competed in 7-a-side matches at Magnolia. Several children were disappointed not to play, as they did not have correct equipment, despite daily reminders.
Those children who did participate were excellent, giving everything to help their house. As usual there were some really exciting matches and some memorable performances and goals!
All the games were played in a competitive but sporting way which was pleasing to witness.
After all the points were totalled, Barnardo were crowned as this year’s House champions! Breakdown of the results are below.
