We were playing Abbotswood and Shirley, we were against Abbotswood. We started the game really well. By the time it was half time it was 0-0. On the second half we also played very well but the end result was that it was 0-0.

Our second game was interesting we were against Shirley.The first half went well, in fact very well we had no goals neither did Shirley, but the new players on our squad were getting straight in there.We went out for the second half but there was no luck.0-0

We had a brilliant success for our first match for the season. The year 5’s and 6’s did really well today,so wish us luck on our next games.

YR 6 Wide Lane Tournament


On Monday 26th September Orchard took part in the Southampton schools football tournament against 25 other teams. Orchards first match was against Portswood and they dominated possession to win 1-0 - a good start to the tournament. In their second match they faced St Monica which they drew 0-0. Orchards 3rd match was against Fairisle which was a fairly comfortable win 4-1. Then they faced Hollybrook a very tight game which turned out a draw 1-1. Their 5th match which was against Townhill was a tight game helped out by Owen’s and Luke’s off the line save they ended up winning. Finally they played Bassett Green which they won 1-0 - they went through first in their group to play Oakwood in the semis which they won on penalties- they were in the final. Sadly they lost the final with an agonising 1-0 which was scored in the last 30 seconds of the second half.

Hants Cup 8-0 Orchard

On the 22nd of October we played in the Hampshire Cup. It was a quality game and we have a solid team.we managed to win 8-0. We got off to a great start of the season. With a solid defence and strike and a great captain Karlos. I think we are going to score lots of goals in the season. We've got a great goalkeeper. Last night was an amazing game and I think they'll have more games like that.I reckon we'll be the best team there is.Im looking foward to Our next game.
