Friday 4th October
On Friday 4th October, Year 2 had their very first Wetherby Kensington football match versus the Falcons school in Chiswick. Many of the boys had been counting down the days till this special moment of the school year.
The Wallabies played in a very close game narrowly losing 1 – 0. Miss Ferguson, also at her first ever football match, was extremely proud and pleased with every single boy who tried their very best for the entire game. William was awarded Man Of The Match for his brilliant efforts both outfield and in goal. Well done to Arthur, Henry W, Oliver, Kai and Kian for a great effort.
The Dragons had a thrilling end to end match. Captain Damian and Mr reliable David were rocks at the back and Rumi supported them in midfield. Double trouble Isa and Musa led the attacks for Wetherby and nearly scored a couple of times. A few more passes here and there between the terrific twins and we may have scored. However the final score was 1 – 0 to the Falcons. A very special mention to Ishan our star goal keeper who was unbeatable, diving and saving several shots. Well done Ishan who is the Dragons Man Of The Match. Also an extra special mention to Rumi who was very grown up at the final whistle, you have done Mr Gibb and all your teachers proud.
The All Blacks started of their Wetherby Kensington football season terrifically winning 2 – 0. Inigo scored a long range shot with his lethal left foot and Edoardo scored the second to seal the win for the team. Henri R was Man Of The Match in goal, making sure The Falcons didn’t hit the net. Well done to all the boys in the All Blacks, a brilliant result.
Game of the day was Miss Painter-Wain’s Springboks team who managed to win 11 – 0. Yes 11 – 0. Leonardo and Michael scoring a single goal and amazing Arman scoring 9 goals, definitely a school record. The game was so one sided that Arthur B was kind enough to shout “come on The Falcons” and offer them some motivational support – very kind Arthur, such a great Wetherby Ambassador. Well done to all involved in the Springboks match, Michael, Leonardo, Arman, Elias, Arthur and Uzay – you superstars!
