Not winners this time but they played their best game ever! Miss Bland was really impressed with the skill and perseverance displayed throughout the game. Good Shepherd won by one point, 4-3. What a nail biting game! Well done to both teams.
The team were very excited to share their news and reported that Oliver hit a brilliant volley to score the best goal of the tournament. He also got a hat trick during the match against Duston. This was a hard game, which they were losing 1-0 until Harry and Ollie scored . Everyone felt proud and ready for the final against AVP – they scored in the first few minutes, defended well and William saved a goal . They took the victory and went home with the shield.
Shout out to the captain, David, who listened to his team, kept them focused, praised throughout and gave them valuable feedback.
Well done the green team!

Turning up, raring to go, we got out of the mini bus and started warming up for our first game.. We played our first game against St.Mary; we scored in the last 3 minutes and then twice again in the last minute. Feeling confidant, we got ready to play Lings ‘A’ team in the second game. We were obviously going to win!! Coming scarily close to the end of the match, it was still 0-0. The whistle blew and the final score was a draw. Coming closer to the deciding semi-final, we had to sit in a line and find out the next fixtures. Hearing we were playing Lings again, it made us even more excited and we wanted to beat them. The last minute came, and Kieran hit the ball with so much power that the keeper didn’t even move. It was the last 10 seconds and we knew we had it. The whistle went and we had won! Cheering with joy, our whole team was ecstatic for the final. Boothvile, was our opponents in the final. Knowing they were going to be good, we kept our spirits high and fought to the end. When the final whistle blew we cheered and ran around. We then immedeantly wanted to lift the glory that we were determined to get. The time had come and Will Stevenson lifted the Trophy.

Our magnificent 5/6 footballers battled hard on a bitterly cold night in Corby last week as Simon de Senlis competed in the NSSP County Finals.
After successfully winning our qualifying tournament before Christmas, we progressed one step further than last year’s success and faced the best teams from across the county.
We successfully qualified from the group stage with three wins and a draw thanks to goals from Tom and Archie and an incredibly tight defence of Liam in goal and the tenacious George B and Luke.
Our attacking prowess continued as we negotiated our way past Woodvale in the semi-final. Kieran and Olcay were incessantly trying to find their way through a packed defence and Isaiah worked tirelessly to ensure we always had plenty of cover at the back.
Tom’s extra-time ‘Golden Goal’ led to rapturous celebrations and paved the way to a final showdown with…St. James!
Led by skipper George K, showcasing his versatility in a more defensive role, we bravely battled against quick-moving attacks. Tom came so close to giving us the lead as the keeper superb spread himself to beat out his effort when through one-on-one, before the heartache of two goals in the final 30 seconds ended our challenge. The first goals we conceded in the whole tournament.
Boys, your guile, style and determination never ceases to amaze me. Your school is incredibly proud of you…you’re an example to everyone.
Many thanks also to all the parents who attended and supported the boys.
Vive Les Fleurs!
