Repton Prep School Football Festival
On Saturday, the U11s visited Repton Prep School to play in their festival of football. Six schools took part which meant that we played five matches. All were exciting games, where we had to play well to compete. The whole squad played superbly and conducted themselves impeccable. A great afternoon of football. Well done, UNBEATEN!

Hallfield A (mixed) v Eversfield
The U10A mixed team played against Eversfield in a tough match of Hockey. The coin toss didn’t fall in our favour however we were quick to win the ball back soon after the whistle was blown. We saw some brilliant passing into space and the match was really end to end. Just before halftime, we won a short corner and were quick to score a great rebound shot giving us the 1-0 lead before the whistle blew. After a quick team talk, they returned, performing great tackles, and putting lots of pressure on the opposition. However, after Eversfield won a short corner, they scored a sneaky goal levelling up the score. With the final whistle blown, the score was an impressive 1-1. Well done to all the players, it was great to see you mesh so well in a mixed team and with little time training together, you were unstoppable (even after a ball to one of our players’ jaws).
Hallfield B (mixed) v Eversfield
The girls and boys worked well together in their first match against Eversfield. Strong play through the centre of the pitch and good running down the wings saw Hallfield create several chances in the first half. Unfortunately, we shot from distance and failed to pressure the goalkeeper. At half time the score was 0-0 as our defence were solid and quick at making interceptions. After half time Hallfield continued to dominate possession and create chances, greater pressure was put onto the goalkeeper but unfortunately we couldn’t drive home the ball and the final result was a creditable 0-0.
Hallfield C (mixed) v Eversfield
A good team performance where the boys and girls mixed well to produce some strong play. Hallfield dominated play and forced the goalkeeper into some good saves. Eversfield’s attack was limited but when called upon the defense stood strong. At half time the score was 0-0. During the second half Hallfield continued to make good runs and put hard passes into the D. The team pressed the goalkeeper much more closely and were able to drive in a goal to make the score 1-0. Further strong defending and good use of the ball in attacking areas ensured a 1-0 victory. A super match with some greater team work.
