The Year 4 Tag Rugby Festival had to be postponed today (Thursday 31st March) due to snow. It will be re-arranged for next half term.
The Trotts Hill girls football team battled hard against an outstanding Leys team yesterday, who are top of the league. They went 5-0 down in the first half but they never let this get to them, they went out in the second half with their heads held high and put in some great tackles, runs and even had a couple of chances towards to end. Some excellent defending and teamwork in the second half meant the final score was 6-0. The girls showed resilience throughout. Thank you to Poppy in Year 4 for stepping up, at the last minute, to make her debut for the team. Captain was Neve and Player of the Match went to Poppy. The team were Penny, Katy, Zara, Neve, Elana, Amelia and Poppy.

As always, the girls took their defeat in good grace and we look forward to our next match. Captain was Penny and Player of the match was Neve for being so flexible and playing in 3 different positions.
Well done Penny, Neve, Zara, Katy, Lilia, Summer, Scarlett, Amelia and Alanna.
