Team B Beaten By Mapplewell
Team B played their final league fixture and put in a hardworking performance but ultimately came up short against a strong Mapplewell side. Having got off to a bad start, conceding in the 1st minute, they then went 2-0 down after 10 minutes. However they showed great character to pull themselves back into the game, with Ewan Clarke bravely slotting home just before half time. After the break, Kairan Owen scored a fantastic free kick to bring the scores level and Team B then pushed on in search of the winner. Unfortunately 2 late goals from Mapplewell gave them the victory, which leaves Team B now waiting on other results to see if they have qualified for the semi-final. Man of the Match awards went to Hayden Brown and Ewan Clarke.
It's An Easter Parade for Burton Road A
The Burton Road A Team qualified for the Semi Finals in style by winning their final league match with a whopping 15-0 victory. Playing away at Kexborough School, on a difficult pitch, Burton Road got off to a bright start but were thwarted by an in form goalkeeper who pulled off a string of fine saves. However when Max Curry finally opened the scoring the floodgates opened and the goals just kept coming. Max Curry scored 5 goals, Leo Cosgrove (3), Kairan Owen (3), Lucas Brennan (3) and Hayden Bennett (1) making it 15 in total, as they ran riot in the 2nd half. Team A have now topped their league scoring a massive 32 goals in 3 games. 'Man of The Match' award went to Leo Cosgrove

You did yourselves proud, team!
Football Friday 16.03.18
Burton Road School continued to play its' Friday afternoon football with two league matches being played at Horizon School. Team A kicked off first, against Hemingfield Ellis, and found themselves in the unfamiliar position of being two goals down at half time. This meant that they had to raise their game and find some quick solutions in the second half, which is exactly what they did. Max Curry ran riot with a six goal scoring spree and Max Jeffreys chipped in with two more as they won the game 8-2. Man of the match awards went to 6 goal hero, Max Curry, but also to Yaroslav Bondar for a commanding performance in centre midfield, which dragged us back into the game. A special mention also goes to Leo Shaw and Ewan Clarke who put in excellent performances for the opposition, after we let them borrow our players.
Team B were involved in a close run affair against Holy Rood School, having twice been pegged back to both 2-2 and then 3-3. As the game entered the latter stages, Team B managed to finally find the crucial winning goals to emerge victorious, with a 5-3 scoreline, making it a fourth win in five. The goals were scored by Kairan Owen (4) and Billy Darbyshire. Man of the Match Awards went to Oliver Morgan and Kairan Owen. Both teams now qualify for the semi finals if they win their final game. COBR!
Football vs Churchfield
Both Team A and Team B played their league fixtures, against Cudworth Churchfield School, at Barnsley College, on Tuesday 13 March. It was Team A's first fixture and they got their league campaign off to a flying start with a resounding 9-0 victory. The goals were scored by Leo Cosgrove (2), Max Curry (2), Hayden Bennett (2), Callum Shone., Max Jeffreys and Zach Martin. The Man of the Match Award went to Max Curry.
Team B chalked up their third win in four games with a comfortable 1-0 victory and the only goal of the game coming from Kairan Owen. Man of the match was Oliver Morgan.
Well done to both teams!
Term 2 Football
Team B have started their league campaign with 2 wins and a defeat. Their first game was against a strong Shawlands team, where they won a tight game 3-2. With goals from Kairan Owen and Billy Darbyshire, the game was evenly poised at 2-2, before Josh Netherwood struck the winner with a fantastic free kick. Next up was Penistone St Johns, where they put in a hard working performance but finally succumbed to a 3-0 defeat. However, they bounced back with a comfortable 6-2 away win at Penistone Springvale with goals from: Kairan Owen (2), Leo Shaw (2), Tyler Hulme & Kyle Barrett.
With three games still to come, Team B now have a strong chance of finishing 2nd and qualifying for the semi-finals. Team A kick off their league campaign with a home fixture against Cudworth Churchfield on Tuesday 13 March. COBR!
A huge well done to Class 7 who competed in the Y3/4 Multi-Skills competition, on Friday 09 March, and won the tournament. Congratulations to all and well done to all the class for coming along and taking part!
Well done to our Boys' and Girls' Y5/6 Basketball teams. They competed in the Primary School Basketball competition and beat all the teams that they played except for the eventual winners, being pipped out of their group on 2 baskets scored, after tying on points. They played really well and scored some fantastic baskets. It was also pleasing to see how quickly they picked up, and enjoyed playing a new sport.
Well done to Class 6 who have competed in the Y3/4 Relay Competition at Outwood Academy!
On 30 January, our Y4/5 Boys' Team were the Barnsley Futsal Champions.
After winning their group undefeated they went on to comfortably win both their quarter and semi-finals before competing in a closely contested final against, our big rivals, Penistone St Johns.
The only goal of the game was scored by Max Jeffreys and the boys will now go on to compete in the South Yorkshire Finals. Congratulations to all the team!
South Yorkshire Finals
Congratulations to our Boy's Football Team who competed in the South Yorkshire Finals, on Thursday. Competing in a group of 8 schools, they played against the region's best teams, amassing 13 points, and finishing in 3rd place overall. They played excellent football throughout and were unlucky to be denied by the woodwork, on several occasions, which denied them the elusive goals needed to top the group. To the finish as the 3rd best school in South Yorkshire is a fantastic achievement though and we are proud of all the boys! Well done and we look forward to our forthcoming League fixtures with our new Sports Coach, Mr Woodhall.
Term 1 Football Round Up
This term we entered a total of 8 teams into the Barnsley Schools competitions.
All Y5/6 boys who expressed an interest in playing inter-school competitive football were given the opportunity to do so and, as a result, we entered 4 separate teams into 3 different qualifying events.
Team A and Team C won their events and Team B finished runners up, meaning that they all went through to the Barnsley Finals. Team D just missed out, but only just.
At the Barnsley Finals, Team A went on to win the competition and now go through to represent Barnsley at the Keepmoat Stadium on 11 January, 2018. Team B also won their group and made it to the quarter finals.
Our Y5/6 girls' team also qualified for the Barnsley Finals' Day where they narrowly missed out on making it through to the semis.
In Lower Key Stage 2, we entered two separate Y3/4 boys teams, where Team A successfully made it through to the semi finals and won the Bronze Award, finishing in third place. Likewise, our Y3/4 Girls Team also achieved the Bronze Award, finishing third, after 3 wins and 2 defeats. This was a remarkable achievement seeing as it was their first ever experience of playing in a football team.
So, overall, it's been a very successful term, where lots of children have taken up the opportunity to compete as part of a team and had a fantastic experience in doing so. We've got more to look forward to in the Spring Term, including:
- Y4/5 Girls' and Boys' Futsal
- 2 Teams entered for the Schools' Football League (9 a side)
