  3. 3. Sports News Norwood 'A' Team Football Match v OLOL Friday 12th February Team: Will Fletcher, Ryan Ashall, Chris Rimmer, Josh Young, Matthew Howard, Lewis Harwood, Daniel Edwards,Tom Stewart, Charlie Gray, Jack Spencer, Simon Gradwell After a long lay off due to dark nights and poor weather conditions, Norwood 'A'Team were back in action at Carr Lane against Our Lady of Lourdes. With our usual goalkeeper otherwise engaged, Will Fletcher bravely volunteered to play in goal. What a star! Norwood took the lead in the first third with an amazing strike from Jack Spencer, much to the delight of his parents and the band of Norwood supporters, who made the journey to cheer on our valiant team. A string of fine saves by Will kept Norwood's lead in tact until a second goal from Lewis Harwood made the result much safer with Norwood now leading 2 - 0. In the final third, OLOL scored themselves to make it 2 - 1 to Norwood, which made the atmosphere a little nervous on the sidelines! With a few more saves to make, Will's Man of the Match performance was rewarded as the final whistle went and the game finished Norwood 2 OLOL 1. Well done Norwood! Man of the Match: Will Fletcher Norwood 'A' Team Football Match v Churchtown Thursday 25th February Team:Luke Dempster, Will Fletcher, Ryan Ashall, Chris Rimmer, Josh Young, Matthew Howard, Lewis Harwood, Daniel Edwards, Charlie Gray, Jack Spencer, Simon Gradwell After a good start, whereby Norwood had a few chances in the first third, the table was turned, as Churchtown took the lead with a good run and strike, to lead one nil in the second third. Pushing forward in an attempt to equalise, Norwood were dealt a second blow in the final third as Churchtown scored again to lead two nil-which was the final score. A disappointing game for Norwood who seemed to lack their usual team enthusiasm and energy. Keep working hard boys! Result: Norwood 0 Churchtown 2 Norwood ‘B’ Team Norwood B v Farnborough C 0-5 A good win by Farnborough C, even though Norwood B played a brilliant match. David Berry, Thomas Leddy and Callum Roughley (the outstanding team captain) all had a chance to score some good goals, but Jack Wallbank had the best chance of all. Man of the match - Thomas Leddy! Team : Aaron Rimmer, Tom Leddy, David Berry, Josh Wright, Jack Wallbank, Jake Hawkings, Joe Telford, Erin Telford, Emily Telford, Liam Campbell, Callum Roughley(Capt.) and Connor Baggaley. Written by Thomas Leddy and David Berry. NORWOOD A v OLOL FOOTBALL The game kicked off on a rather grey day but that wasn't going to stop these two competitve teams. Norwood kicked off with a quick break but Our Lady's defended well and got the ball clear. Some great football came from the opposition but the Norwood defence proved too strong with a good tackle from Daniel Edwards. The ball got cleared quickly Our Lady's were on the attack. A solid shot was saved by goalkeeper Luke Dempster which unfortunately bounced out and another shot came in. The rushing defender tried to get out of the way but the ball was too quick and hit his foot directing the shot to the back of the net. 1-0 Half Time Second half- Our Lady's kicked off this time with a trick pass back to the goalkeeper. A long throw went to Matthew Howard who then gave it to Ryan Ashall who went for a shot but a foot came in and blocked it for a corner. Matthew Howard stepped up to take the corner, the looping corner went in. The blues were back in it as Jamie Hough headed home. 1-1. Our Lady's kicked again but Ryan Ashall tackled well then giving the ball to Matthew Howard who had a shot which was easily saved by the goalkeeper. Later on it happened again with the same outcome. End of the second third Norwood started us off again with their last chance with Matthew Howard hitting the target many times but great goalkeeping came from the opposition. A great ball forward went to the striker who passed across goal for a easy tap in. The ball was spread wide to Simon Gradwell but time was up. Full time Norwood 1 OLOL 2 Commiserations to Norwood you all played well! Team: L.Dempster, D.Edwards, W.Fletcher, Chris Rimmer, J.Young, J.Hough, J.Spencer, C.Gray, S.Gradwell, M.Howard, R.Ashall. Man of the match: Matthew Howard. Reported by Matthew Howard and Simon Gradwell.

Both are covered and should be a real boost in encouraging parents and children to come to school on their bikes and scooters. In order to ensure the safety of everyone who uses the playground, we have told children the following rules: - The blue cycle shelter is for the use of children's bikes and scooters only. - Bikes and scooters must be pushed across the playground at all times. - The green cycle shelter is for the use of staff and adults visiting the school. - The only children, who should be cycling to school on their own, are those children in Y5 and Y6, who have completed their cycling proficiency course. - Other children are encouraged to cycle to school, as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult. Please help us to keep the playground safe by following these rules and reminding their children about them. We would also like to thank the School Council and Mrs. Kenrick for their hard work and persistence in obtaining the grant from Sefton as part of the school's travel plan.
