This Week at Monkfrith

Monkfrith Football Team Update 17.01.18

On Wednesday, Monkfrith football team travelled down to Oakhill Park to play Church Hill School in their next league match. Church Hill scored the first goal with a long range shot but we came back in Monkfrith style with a goal from Alfie who received a pass from Sebastian down the line. Church Hill struck back to lead once again. Monkfrith were determined to get an equaliser. They hit the post and the cross bar more times than I remember. Church Hill scored once again, making it 3-1. Monkfrith didn’t give up and finally Alfie scored his second. Church Hill goalkeeper made some fantastic saves. Monkfrith continued to attack the goal but unfortunately it just wasn’t Monkfrith’s day. We were very proud of the boys’ spirit and determination despite the score and their shots not going there way. Theirs first league defeat. 3-2 was the final score. Congratulations to Sebastian who was voted players player.

Safari Pete visits Year 1:

11.01.18  The children were amazed, delighted, excited and inspired by their workshops today.  Safari Pete brought in a range of animals with Paws, Claws & Whiskers.  They had an opportunity to hold animals that they would not normally come into close contact with.  Their knowledge was questioned and furthered by an entertaining and engaging facilitator – did you know that some animals have claws that don’t retract and this allows them greater speed when running?  Or that snakes have the remnants of claws?

Monkfrith Football Team Update 14.12.17

On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played against Moss Hall in the 2nd round of the Dick Bailey Cup. The players started very confidently and the large pitch suited our game perfectly. They played up hill in the first half and the match was quite even. After a quick half time refreshment break, the players were feeling confident. They made the most of playing down hill and the final score was 7-4. Goals from Harry, Zain, Sebastian and 4 from Alfie. Well done to the Moss Hall players who never gave up and came back from a 7-1 lead. Fantastic match boys. A special mention to Mete and Max our super strong defenders making it really hard for Moss Hall to score. Congratulations to Max who was voted players player.

Next league matches 11th January and 17th January.

On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played their second league match against Hollickwood. The players did not let their last match get to them and they went into this match filled with confidence. Despite Hollickwood working really hard and their goalkeeper making many quality saves, we won a comfortable 8-1. Another win in the league taking us to 6 points. We are so proud of the way the boys are passing and moving together as a team and our teams sportsmanship towards the other team. Congratulations to Harry who was voted players player.

Monkfrith Football Team Update 30.11.17

This week we had what we knew would be a tough match against Akiva in the East Barnet cup. We had many chances with Alfie’s free kick hitting the bar, Zain hitting the side netting and many scrabbles in front of the goal. It just wasn’t our day. Although our team played great football and battled hard, they lost 5-0. This does not reflect how even the match was. Special mention for Max, who made many critical defensive challenges. A huge thank you to Steven for stepping into goal with Jacks absence. We are proud that they never gave up and they were still having shots in the last moments of the game. Congratulations to Max who was voted players player.

Next Thursday we face Hollickwood in the league. Good luck

Monkfrith Football Team 23.11.17

On Thursday, Monkfrith football team played their first league match this week against St John’s N11. We started positively not knowing what to expect. In the first half both teams were even and attacks came from both sides with St John’s scoring the first goal, putting a lot of pressure on us. However, our heads didn’t drop and we came back when Alfie scored to make it 1-1. Our second goal came shortly after from a corner scored by Mete to make it 2-1 just before half time. We went into the second half feeling positive and our confidence was super high. Two more goals from Alfie and two from Zain made the final score 7-1. Congratulations to Alfie who was voted players player.

A fantastic final score for our first match. We are all very proud of the team and their determination to come back from a goal behind.
