Year 7 Netball – tournament against Milton Cross, ALNS, PAFG, St Edmunds
The girls played really well as a team. They have been very committed to training and know each others strengths. The shooters worked particularly well together bringing the ball into the attacking circle. Defence is another strength of the team. The defenders were very persistent and managed 3 games with a clean sheet. The girls raised their game when playing St Johns. Although this was a loss the girls were able to see many positives in their game. We are looking forward to completing the league next week.
3 Wins, 1 Draw, 1 Loss

Year 10 Football – against Trafalgar school
This was the Year 10 football team’s last fixture in the league before their semi final appearance against ALNS and the boys were looking to get back to winning ways after their suprise defeat to Springfield. The game started equally with few chances for both teams and it took an error from the Trafalgar goalkeeper to open the scoring; spilling a speculative effort from Duncan into his own goal. This calmed Priory and the boys started playing with composure and quality, however it did take a great stop from Dudman who came out victorious in a 1 on 1 situation to keep the game to Priory’s advantage. The second half began with Priory reasserting their dominance and after some continued pressure Kanjanda won a free kick out wide with some great close ball control. From the resulting free kick, Gwenge managed to get himself on the end of a quality delivery putting some more daylight between the teams. At this point Priory were in complete control, and Frost made sure of the win with a tidy finish into the bottom corner. Congratulations to the Year 10’s who league record is as follows for the 2015-16 season: 5 Wins, 2 Losses and 0 Draws.
Year 11 Football – against Springfield School
A good game against a physical springfield team. The pitch was difficult to play on and our normal style of possesion play was hindered. Having created many chances for Brendand and Jack, Max Davies ended up with a ball to the face and a serious nose bleed insued. True to his grit and determination, he soldiered on to eventually scored the winning goal.
Priory dominated most of the match but had to deal with a direct style of play from Springfield. The former striker, now centre back, Lenny Cole had a man of the match performance taking charge from the back line. He won every header, Every tackle, calmed play down and built from the back. All players contributed well to the game and clear team work and group morale played in our favour.
0 – 1 Win
