U11 Basketball Competition

On Tuesday 11th February the U11 basketball team took part in the School Games competition at Inspire Suffolk.  The competition was divided into groups and Henley faced St Pancras, Ranelagh and Witnesham.  The girls were set to play the first half and the boys would play the second half of each match. 


Henley played St Pancras first and got off to a slow start against a well organised side. The girls didn’t manage to score so it was even going in to the second half. The second half was close throughout for the boys and St Pancras just managed to steal the win 4-3. 


The second match against Ranelagh was another close match with Amy taking an early basket for Henley in the first half. The boys kept the pressure on with James and Finn D scoring baskets to secure a 3-2 win for us. This was an exciting match for the spectators.


In the third match Henley dominated play against Witnesham from the outset. The girls scored an amazing 8 baskets with Frankie scoring 5, Amelia 2 and Mia 1.  A fantastic performance from the girls and the boys played equally well in the second half and didn’t allow Witnesham to score and baskets.

To level the score Mia scored a fantastic goal and we began to dominate play. Ava went on to score next to secure a 2-1 win to Henley. 


Henley played Ranelagh in the next match and once again began well. Ranleigh took the first goal but Henley defended well and kept up the pressure. This resulted in a goal from Ava within seconds of the final whistle making it a 1-1 draw. 


Henley played Handford Hall and The Oaks in the next matches and lost both 1-0. Both teams proved to be strong and went through to the semi-finals. Henley played very well all afternoon and although they didn’t make it through to the final they should be very proud of their effort.

The U11 Boys Football Team travelled to Whitton Sports Centre on Thursday 3rd October to play against 19 schools in our area competition. 


Henley had a solid start to the afternoon facing Shotley in their first match. The match play was fairly even throughout and the score was 0-0 for a while. Henley had several chances but just couldn’t find the back of the net.  Shotley scored with just a few minutes to go. Final result - 1-0 to Shotley. 


Putting the the first game behind us Henley played Stratford St Mary in the next match, showing great determination and went into an early lead with an excellent goal from James in the first 30 seconds. Stratford sneaked a goal back but the defence stayed strong and battled hard.  Finn made some great saves and James went on to secure the lead with another goal. Final result - 2-1 win to Henley.


In the next match Henley played a strong Hadleigh team which was exciting from the outset. The game

flowed from end to end and Hadleigh’s fast pace enabled them to score a goal but Henley responded well and James scored to equalise. The match ended in a draw. 


Henley carried forward the momentum to the next match against Hillside which was another exciting game. Our defence once again remained strong and Hillside was unable to score, despite a few attempts. Oscar had a brilliant shot at goal which hit the back of the net and Henley went on to win the match. Final score - 1-0.


Henley had a great afternoon of football, winning 2, drawing 1 and losing 1. 


Many thanks goes to Mr Parkinson who offered some great coaching throughout the afternoon.

U11 Boys Football Competition

U11 Boys Football Competition 

Our first competition of the year and the U11 boys were excited to travel to Whitton Sports Centre with Mr Crump on Thursday 4th October to show off their football skills. 

Ranelagh vs Henley
Henley started with a strong performance, defending well from the start against a well matched Ranelagh side. The opponents best chance came from a corner. A header from Ranelagh’s striker struck the post and went out for a goal kick. The winning goal came moments later. James collected the ball on the half way line, took on a player and buried a 15 yard strike in the bottom corner. A great start!
Final score: Ranelagh 0, Henley 1

Tattingstone vs Henley
Another strong performance from Henley but we failed to take our chances. Tattingstone keeper made a great save from a Zac strike. We had several shots, one after the other but Tattingstone defended very well. Against the run of play, a Tattingstone midfielder made a strong run, dribbling through two Henley defenders and spotting the ball underneath the helpless Harry. 
Final score: Tattingstone 1, Henley 0

Halifax vs Henley
A difficult game for the boys. It was always going to be tough against a larger school. The team tried very hard but were outclassed by the team in royal blue. Halifax scored two outstanding goals from long distance.
Final score: Halifax 5, Henley 0

St. Pancreas vs Henley
Henley played well but unfortunately couldn’t get a shot on goal. St. Pancreas tested our defence and Harry had an excellent game in goal. St.Pancreas scored late on to win. 
Result: St. Pancreas 1, Henley 0

Claydon vs Henley 
Final game of the day. I thought losing three was very harsh and maybe deserved at least two victories where we had been on top. We had a chance to go in front early but the keeper made a great block from James. Claydon scored the first goal from long distance. Henley kept pushing for a goal and scored in the last kick of the game. James ran through beating three defenders before rolling the ball into the corner. Excellent goal from James again.
Final score: Claydon 1, Henley 1
