On 10/01/20, our boys ‘A’ team had their first match of 2020. The boys got off to a strong start, putting a lot of pressure on their opposition. It wasn’t long before Avenue took the lead with a great finish from Kayden. Unfortuntely, Zac scored a second but it was ruled out for offside. Shortly after, Avenue went 2-0 up with another cracking goal from Kayden: picking the ball up in defence and taking it past around 6 different players then planting it neatly in the bottom left. The boys dominated possession and were the stronger team in the first half.
St Cecilia’s came back stronger in the second half and put our defence under pressure. We stayed strong and Spike made a couple of important saves. With around 5 minutes to go, St Cecilia’s scored from the robound of a freekick. The boys stayed calm and controlled to see the game out and take the three points. A great way to start the new year; well done boys!
Our first match of the Cup draw took place on the 22nd of Novemeber, we played against Cheam Common who we had already lost to in the league.
After an intense game of outstanding sportsmanship and football ability, we were delighted that a late goal saw us go 1-0 up. The game was played all the way to the final whistle and the boys were over the moon with their win.
We look forward to our next match in the Cup on the 4th of Feburary 2020.
On Monday, we saw the Year 5 & 6 football team go up against Manor Park in the league. After an unsuccessful start to the year, our confidence was low. However, the cold weather clearly benefited us as we went on to win our first game of the season.
7-1 was the score at the final whistle. 2 goals from Marvin, 2 goals from Khaled and a Hat-trick from Jack will see us go into our next game on a high.
We look forward to the support again on Thursday 12th December at Sutton United against Cheam Common.

We have been very fortunate to have coaches from Cheam Cricket Club providing after school cricket for children in Year 3 & 4. They are a local club and provide excellent sporting opportunities for all ages.
Last week, the Year 6 boys made their football debut in the Danone Cup, which is a 7-a-side tournament. Their opening game was against Devonshire Primary. It was a solid performance with goals from Zac and Kayden, resulting in a 2-0 win. The next game was tough. After going 1-0 against Cheam Common, the boys made a fantastic comeback to draw the game 1-1 – a vital goal from Zac. In their final game, it went down to the last minute. Brookfield’s defence was solid, but with a cruicial break-through from Daniel, Avenue won the game 1-0. Unfortunately, Avenue didn’t win their group – they came second on goal difference! However, the boys still progressed through to the finals as the ‘best runners-up’. A fantastic, undefeated start to the season, well done boys!
This year’s Year 5 and 6 football trials will be held on Friday 6th September. The children must ensure they have their full PE kit and trainers if they wish to take part. Shin pads and football boots are not required for the trials. Letters will be given out the following week to children who have gained a place in the club.
Good luck to all!
