Sports Round up

We have had a great term for sports again at Valence, catch up with our football, tag rugby and hockey news and results.

Barking and Dagenham Post Cup

The boys football team have had two football matches recently in the Barking and Dagenham Post Cup with the first match being on Tuesday 21st February v Thames View, it was a great performance by the boys winning 5 nil with goals from Uchenna (2) and Charlie Rich with a superb hat trick. Following this on Tuesday 28th we played Gascoigne Primary, it was a tough match but the boys played some good football and with some flowing moves won the game 6-3 with goals from Connelly (2), Martin (2), Williams and Kiki. These result have put us through to the knock stage well done boys.

Borough Tag Rugby

The year 5 and 6 mixed team played in the borough Tag Rugby tournament the children played well winning 1 drawing 1 losing 2 and coming 2nd in our group missing out to go through to the next stage but it was a great experience for the children as some have only played tag rugby a few times well done.

Hockey Tournament

We took two teams to the borough Barking & Dagenham Primary Schools Quick Sticks Hockey Festival at Robert Clack School. Braving the cols and blustery conditions the teams where put into groups. The A team played 4 games beating Ripple 7-0 St Margret's 2-0 William Bellemy B 4-0 and drawing with Henry Green 2-2, this left us top of our group and into the semi finals. We played George Carey in our semi-final winning 2-0 to take our A team to the final to face William Bellemy A. The final was a great match with William coming out on top winning 2-0, this left us with silver medals and a great performance coming second out of 16 other schools.
