Match Reports – Week ending 28.09.18


On Wednesday, 26th September, Glebe Under 9s played in a triangular tag rugby tournament at home. Riddlesworth won the first match against Downham Prep. by five tries to three.

We then played Downham in the second match. We chose to start with the ball and straight away Sammy made an amazing run and scored the first try. I scored two, Sammy scored another and Jack got one. We put in a lot of effort and we managed to win by five tries to three.

We knew that if we could beat Riddlesworth in our final match we would win the tournament. They started and scored straight away but then Matthew made a good run and got the equalizer. I scored three tries and we ended up victorious by four tries to three. My man of the match is Jacob for an amazing performance and creating some tries. We won the tournament by winning both our matches. Well done team!


Under 11s Rugby

The under 11’s played a match against a mixed team from Riddlesworth and Downham Market.

We started off well but were caught off guard, very quickly, by the incredible speed of one of the Downham players, he broke through our line and had scored a try almost before we’d even realised it! He was also very big and we were all a bit nervous of tackling him to begin with. Mr Turner gave us a good talking to about improving our defending and after that we all started to work together much better as a team.

We were very well matched and the final score was 7 all. Our try scorers were Archie, Will, Ferdi, Charlie and Edward got an amazing 3 tries. I think we played well but we all need to get more stuck in and be more determined, especially with our tackling.

My man of the match is Edward for scoring 3 tries, but Ferdi is also highly commended for his lightening speed.

Under 11 Girls’ Hockey

On Wednesday 26th of September we played a home match against Langley at Taverham. I lost the toss and chose ends. We started off well with Mabel scoring a goal after I set her up. In the second half we started off well playing more fluidly with me dribbling the ball past Langley’s defence and scoring from just inside the D. We continued to play well with Sydney hitting the ball out of defence up to Mabel who passed to Jasmin who scored. We ended up winning the match 3-0.

My girls of the game are Sydney for her expert defending and Jasmin for scoring her amazing goal! Well done girls for winning, let’s keep it up.


Under 13 Girls’ Hockey

On Wednesday 26th September we travelled to Gresham’s for a hockey match. We won the toss and chose ends. We started well with some good passes and played at a better pace around the pitch. After about 15 minutes after some great hassling by Daisy, Elise scored our first goal.

We started the second half under pressure from Gresham’s, but Kitty stayed strong in goal. We continued to play at pace and tried to get the ball wide as much as possible. After the whistle blew for full time we were all tired but happy to have sustained our 1-0 win. My girl of the game was Elise for being picked as Gresham’s girl of the game and a brilliant goal. Well done girls and thank you Mr Gladstone for taking us.


U9s Girls’ Hockey

On Wednesday the 26th of September we played Downham Prep School in a hockey match on grass.

I won the toss and choose to push back. We started poorly and were crowding the ball a lot, but we gradually got better. In the second quarter Orla scored our first goal. We continued to play well and in the third quarter Orla scored again, followed by one from me. This made the score 3-0.

My girl of the game is Kitty as it was her first time in goal and she made some good saves.

Well done team but we need to work on our speed.
