The year 7 team have taken massive strides forward this year especially in the last few games with results being positive. Although the boys lost the first 3 games they often played some lovely football however results didn't go our way after encountering some bigger and stronger boys who have good football backgrounds. Some real stand out performances from certain individuals showing great courage on the ball and real resilience within their play. The team have represented the school wonderfully and the future for this group of boys is definitely bright.

14 February 2019 | AVA vs. Waddesdon
After chasing Waddesdon for the first 10 minutes of the game as they led 1-0, the girls worked hard to get themselves a goal, allowing them to go into the second half with a draw.
