U8 Jnr Boys' Rugby v Westonbirt

On Monday, the U8's and B's played against Westonbirt. The A team began quite slowly, particularly with their tagging. However, after realising this they began to organise themselves much better and had much more success. The team possesses some strong runners in Luke, Jack and Henry. However, there were excellent contributions from Monte and William this week. However, the POM goes to Henry Dent for his strong running and excellent tagging.

POM: Henry D


The B's had a much more even game, with plenty of good running from Joshua and Oliver. However, their organisation needs a little work and this will help with their tagging. Well done though for a great game with plenty of tries.

U9 Jnr Boys' Rugby v Westonbirt

On Monday Heywood played Westonbirt and produced a commanding performance resulting in a 10-3 win. All of the boys demonstrated superb commitment defensively and played some wonderful rugby in the loose. The team demonstrated a superb level of fitness compared to their opposition and this showed particularly in their defence, maintaining their defensive line and waiting until the ideal moment to commit to the counter ruck. Player of the match went to Tom D for taking the match by the scruff of the neck in tight moments both in defence and attack.

U10A & B Boys' Football Festival @ KES Bath


On Wednesday 29th of November Year 5 boys went to play at a Bath schools' tournament and we were played five games. From what I saw in the match we need of the A team, we need to work on firm passing, positioning and shooting from the right place! But, otherwise we played very strong and as a result we won 3 of our 5 matches. The stand out performers was Josh, Ed A and Alfie F. My man of the match was Joshua, for an overall great performance.

U11 Boys' Football Festival @ Kingswood


On Wednesday Heywood took part in the Bath Schools football festival held at Kingswood upper. With a cold wind blowing down from the Urels, Heywood played against Paragon, Kingswood, KES and Stonar. Despite not finding victory in the games themselves the boys can take heart from not giving up and maintaining an obdurate attitude in the face of adversity. Player of the match goes to Will for playing in all positions on the pitch despite carrying an injury.
