Football Match Reports

Monkfrith V Whitings Hill

On the 21st December, Monkfrith football team played in the Dick Bailey Cup Round 2. We travelled to Whitings Hill and played on the astro pitch. It was a great match and possibly the most skilful side we have come up against this season but we played some amazing football. Monkfrith showed how they have really come together as a team and teamwork was really the key to this match. We had to defend very well and Jack (our goal keeper) had to make many crucial saves but our skills, combination play and determination proved best on the day. We won 4-1. Through to Round 3. Well done. We are so proud of you and we enjoy watching the way you play together more and more as a team. 

Keep it up.

Monkfrith V St Paul’s N11

On the 21st November, Monkfrith football team played their second league match against St Paul’s N11. It was a close game and both teams battled until the end. Monkfrith played really well and won 2-1. Congratulations to Timo who was voted players player.

On Tuesday 13th November, Monkfrith football team played in the Dock Bailey Cup against Brookland Junior School. We started a bit slow and our keeper Jack kept us in the match with some great saves. After half time, I saw the team that I know. They were move confident and moved the ball around effectively. We went 3 – 0 up and looked very comfortable. In the last minutes of the match Brookland were rewarded a penalty and the end score became 3-1.

Congratulations to Sebastian who was voted players player.

Well done boys. First win of the season and we look very promising. I can’t wait to see them play again next Wednesday.

Monkfrith V St. Theresa’s

On Tuesday 16th October, it was a new season for Monkfrith football team. Our first match had arrived – Monkfrith V St. Theresa’s.

In the first three minutes the other team managed to claim the first goal to make it 0-1. Just a short time after our right winger Zaid had run down from the halfway line to get our first goal to make the score a fair 1-1. For the rest of the first half Sebastian managed to score but then the other team got two goals to get the score up to 3-3.

In the second half, we worked hard to score two more goals to make it 5-3. After that our luck changed and we couldn’t hold onto the lead. Sadly, the other team scored two more goals to make it even and then another making it 5-6. Despite our many attempts on goal and our determination we couldn’t score again.

Although we had a brilliant match, we were not able to claim the victory that we had wished for. It was a very promising first match and we are looking forward to our next one.

Alex – our defender was amazing. He saved us many times and even had an attempt on goal himself.

A special mention to Ned, who stepped into defence and tackled a very skilful Year 6 boy many times during the match. Even St Theresa’s teacher praised how well he played, and how shocked he was at how he kept up with his striker. A very well-deserved players player voted by his team mates.

Well done team! Let’s go into our next match positively. Thank you Miss Pierides and all the parents that helped us get there.

Congratulations to Ned who was voted players player.

Sportshall Athletics at QE Girls’ – We’re in the FINAL

On the 22nd November, the excited Sportshall Bronze medalist attended the Barnet schools final ready to compete against the other 5 top schools in the borough. We athletes worked really hard and did the best that they could. It was thrilling to watch. With all the points added up at the end, we came 5th school in the borough of Barnet – but I will remind you that we are the number 1 small school. A fantastic performance from all. It was a great pleasure to take such well behaved and mannered children and an honour to be in the finals. We are so proud of you all. 

On the 8th November, a selected group of Year 4, 5 and 6 children attended a very competitive indoor athletics competition against North Barnet schools. The children were incredible and made us very proud. They worked so hard that they came 3rd out of the 14 schools that attended. This means that they will now compete against the top 6 school in Barnet. We are the ONLY small school to get to the Sportshall Final.

Well done team and good luck for the final on the 22nd November. You have already made us very proud. Gooooo Monkfrith.


Cross Country Meet 1 Report

On 18th October 2018, it was a beautiful day for cross country. Year 4, 5 and 6 competed in our first meet of the year against all Barnet schools. The children were incredible and they made us super proud, not only for their running but also for their behaviour and sportsmanship.

Well done to all the runners:

Jeslyn will now go on to represent Barnet at the London Games.

A special mention to Sebastian, who gave up his position in the race to help a boy from another school who was having trouble breathing. We hope the boy is now ok.

Cross Country Meet 1 Results 

Final Results are in. We are super proud to announce that the combined scores of our runners made Monkfrith 5th against about 37 schools in Barnet.
