Sports News: 5 March 2020

Despite the slightly unpleasant weather conditions of late, plenty of sport has still taken place within the last week. Last Thursday, our U9 boys played in their first competitive hockey fixtures of the academic year against Hoebridge. No fewer than 8 Cranmore teams represented the Year Group from the school. On a rare fine afternoon with blue skies, the matches proved a good test and were very enjoyable for all the players.

On the same afternoon, two U13 hockey teams travelled to Danes Hill for matches. Cranmore played superbly creating plenty of goal scoring opportunities on both pitches. One game finished 2-1, the other 4-0, both in favour of Cranmore.

On Friday, a Cranmore U10 team participated in the Caterham School Hockey Tournament. Across 5 matches, Cranmore scored 14 goals and only conceded 2. The undefeated Cranmore team went on to be crowned Tournament Champions. Well done all!

On Monday, two U9 netball teams and an U8 side had a great outing to Manor House. Fantastic netball was played across all three courts resulting in winning performances all round.

Plenty more hockey fixtures have taken place, including our U13s versus Shrewsbury House and the U11s away at Danes Hill. It is pleasing to report that all 6 teams were undefeated.

Finally, it’s been great to watch the pupils in the Senior School enjoy the latest rotation of PE. This has included Gymnastics, Health Related Fitness and Racquets. Also, the Junior School within PE are currently enjoying ‘Movement’ as part of their activities block.
