Sports Update 7 November

Mr Hodgson, Director of Sport, writes:

Football has continued either side of half-term as we come towards the end of our football curriculum block. Across the school we played Northcote Lodge, Parkside and KCJS. On Monday, our 1st XI played their Surrey Cup quarter final against Feltonfleet and on Wednesday our 1st XI, 2nd XI and 3rd XI played away against Danes Hill (see results on our sports portal, via the Cranmore website). The grand finale of our football season is the annual Henkes Shield which takes place tomorrow, hosted at Rokeby.

Our U8 girls hockey teams had a great fixture against City of London Freeman’s before our break, whilst also participating this side of half-term in their regular joint lesson with St Teresa’s.

Finally, we were very fortunate to have a video clip sent from two England players in the 2019 World Cup Squad. Jonathan Joseph and Joe Cokanasiga were able to give some insight to their World Cup experience, Japanese lifestyle and how they managed when the typhoon hit Japan. The rugby internationals were also able to share some of their fondest memories of sport growing up, plus passed on advice and emphasised the importance of playing a variety and enjoying all sports.
