Wednesday Games

20th March 2019

It was another mammoth session of Wednesday games today, with 25 pupils from Form 3 and 4 working together on the surprisingly warm back pitches. To warm up, we worked on our fitness and stamina with a five minute run and then did some exercises to improve our flexibility.

We moved on to the skills development portion of the afternoon, where we focused on accuracy, keeping possession of the ball and communication.

Finally, we brought all these factors together in a big, full pitch game of football with mixed teams of boys and girls across both classes. We had the players thinking about their positioning on the pitch and working on communicating with their team mates to maximise the chances of success.

It was a fiercely contested competition with lots of fair play and good sportsmanship on display. The sides were very evenly matched and at the full time whistle the game finished with a 0-0 draw.
