Shenfield High School

Year 9 B, C and D Football Competitions

I just wanted to say big congratulations to all the schools that participated in the Yr8 & 9 B, C & D Teams Football Festivals held here at Shenfield over the last two weeks. Both days were a great success mainly due to both the enthusiasm of the players, the standard of play & the excellent refereeing of our young leaders here at Shenfield.

The Yr8 Festival turned out to be a very close affair between all the schools that entered, with standings for Tournament 1 (B Teams) & Tournament 2 (C & D Teams) having to be decided on goal difference, because of total points and head to head results were all equal.  However, the final placing in Tournament 1 found Brentwood County High B securing first place & Anglo European B & St Martins B tying on points for second but Anglo’s better goal difference secured the second spot. In Tournament 2 the final winners were St Martins C with Shenfield C & D teams tying for second.

The Yr9 Festival was also very close. With group standing in both Tournament 1 (the B group) & Tournament 2 producing a 1st & 2nd place a decision was made to play finals.  Drawn against each other in the B Group final was Brentwood County High B v Shenfield.  The two finalists had already met in what could only be described as a very close game with Shenfield defence being beaten only once. The final lived up to all expectation with lots of quality football & great saves being made at both ends before Shenfield started to put on the pressure and finish their chances.  The final result was 4-0 to Shenfield who were clinical in front of goal and very solid at the back. Well done to both teams for putting on an excellent match.

Tournament 2, 1st & 2nd place teams were again Brentwood County High C v Shenfield C. This time Brentwood managed to come out on top with the same result as their league match a 2-0 victory.  Well done again to both teams for putting on an excellent match.

Finally just a quick thank you to the teachers who took time out to organise and run the school teams and I do hope that you will all be entering teams in the next B,C&D competition.
