A superb whole team performance saw the girls turn around a 4-2 deficit at half time into a 6-5 victory.
A below par first half still saw us score 2 well taken goals. The way the girls responded to their half time instructions shows the progress they have made over the last couple of years. Challenging for every ball and making sure they won their tackles. Wonderful matches from all the players which led to a well-deserved victory. Superb!
2 games for Robertswood with varying degrees of success. A strong performance all round with lots of great battling and super team spirit displayed by all.
Game 1- It was superb to see lots of players show their ability in our final game of the season and some of the goals we scored were a joy to watch. Passing and moving was the order of the day for our 10-0 victory.
Game 2 - A big battle against a physical side. The desire and effort put in was admirable and it was particularly pleasing to see strong performances from Scarlet and Alana who supplemented the boys excellently.
It was a pleasure to host the Year 5 District tournament for the second year. This year, we were able to put out 3 Robertswood teams and all the teams were exceptional in the way the performed. There were tricky opposition teams, however, the perseverance and determination of the boys helped all teams to secure great results. Particularly mention to Fletcher who made some superb saves throughout the tournament.
We were delighted to see one of the Robertswood teams through to the semi-finals against Great Missenden. They were full of confidence after winning their group without losing and only conceding once. Reece with a hat trick in one of the games!
Unfortunately, despite being clearly the stronger of the two teams in the semi-final, Robertswood were unable to convert their chances which left it up to the lottery of penalties. 3 superb saves from the Missenden goalkeeper meant that unfortunately, Robertswood were out.
A superb performance by all involved in very wet conditions. One very proud teacher!
Year 6 Vs Gerrards Cross.
A great team performance from a mixed Year 5 and 6 boys team saw us run out comfortable winners.
Particularly pleasing was the way the boys focused on implementing the half time team talk to pass the ball more. 2 of the second half goals really demonstrated the way we wanted to play, great passing moves with super finishes.
6 children made their way up to Milton Keynes after success in the district round. They were tasked with completing a vault, floor routine and Body management routine. All 6 did a fantastic job, demonstrating great gymnastic ability and understanding. They supported each other well, showed lots of resilience, and had big smiles the whole time. A super effort!
Robertswood 1 Chalfont : St Peter Academy 2
The game that Robertswood played against Chalfont St Peter Academy was incredibly closely fought. Both sides set a very high standard from the beginning of the match and it was clear that they would only be separated by a moment of brilliance. This came when Tula broke away after a defence splitting pass and produced a magical finish to put Robertswood 1 nil up. Unfortunately, CSPA quickly equalised, but the girls went into the second half with everything to play for. Ultimately, CSPA were very fortunate winners and the Robertswood team should be able to hold their heads up high after their performance. Well done girls!
Robertswood 0 Chalfont : St Peter Academy 1
A tough game in tough conditions. The boys began brightly and controlled large parts of the game without ever having a clear opportunity. A number of good efforts from range were kept out by the opposition keeper. Unfortunately, one long ball was our undoing, leading to a goal against the run of play. A strong response in the second half couldn't prevent a very undeserved loss. A strong team effort, with lots of great things to build upon as the league campaign continues!
Robertswood 2 Chalfont : St Peter Academy 1
A strong start saw us keep the opposition stuck inside their half and forced the keeper into a string of great saves to deny us. Very unlucky to be drawing 0-0 at half time. Robertswood continued to push in the second half with the opposition keeper again being forced to perform heroics to keep the score level. A well struck free kick gave the visitors a surprising but short-lived lead as Cormac scored directly from kick off to instantly equaliser. The pressure showed finally as Robertswood broke through again to secure the winning goal and a 2-1 victory.
Farnham Common 1 : Robertswood 2
Robertswood began their cup game against Farnham Common Junior School in tentative fashion. Chances were at a premium and the girls struggled to maintain possession of the ball. However, they managed to ensure defensive rigidity until the home side were able to obtain a clear sight of goal and, despite Amy B's best efforts, we were 1 nil down. Robertswood began the second half brightly. This resulted in the equaliser when Scarlet N casually skipped past a challenge and laid the ball through to Alana S who finished with aplomb.
Now, with Lexi H putting in an absolute masterclass in defence and Keelyn M, Lily B and Lauren B all making crucial challenges, the stage was set for a winner. This came two minutes from time when Scarlet N hurled in a mighty throw from the touchline that evaded everyone in the box and was unfortunately fumbled into the net by the opposition keeper. This prompted wild celebrations from those watching at the Robertswood end and the girls managed to hold on for the victory.
Match 1 vs CSPA - 0-0
Tight game with very limited chances. Robertswood battled hard to limit opportunities but were unable to cause too many problems themselves.
Game 2 vs Berkhamsted Prep 0-1
Another tight game, decided by a great strike from the opposition. The girls fought hard and created a few shooting opportunities but good work from the opposition keeper kept us out.
Game 3 vs Chesham Prep B 1-0
The girls started positively and created a string of chances. Markaija eventually converted one to give us a comfortable win.
Game 4 vs Great Missenden 0-1
Another tough loss, conceded an unlucky goal whilst creating lots of opportunities ourselves. Very unlucky not to come away with a draw at least.
Game 5 vs Chesham Prep A 1-0
Another positive start and determined attacking play saw us create more opportunities and a great strike from the edge of the box by Markaija saw us to our second victory.
Game 6 vs York House 1-0
A great way to finish, a match played at a quick pace with lots of battling from all the Robertswood players. Deservedly scored after Markaija nutmegged the keeper and easily held on to win
Final position - 3rd
A superb all round team performance. Great battling and determination from everyone and played in the Robertswood spirit! Kayla was nominated 'Player of the Day' for her excellent defensive work.
Robertswood 4 : St Nicolas 1
The girls of Robertswood started the game in a tentative but determined fashion having to withstand some early pressure. As the game went on, the dominance of the home side came through and Robertswood went into half time with a 2-0 lead. The second half started like the first half with two further goals. It was a great all-round performance including those who made their first competitive appearance for Robertswood.
Robertswood win friendlies 3-0 and 7-0
Robertswood under 10 boys travelled to Gerrards Cross for two friendly matches. Two evenly matched sides met across two matches and it was pleasing to see evidence of the work that has been taking place on the training fields of Chalfont Common being displayed as the visitors ran out winners in both matches. 3-0 and 7-0. The visitors played really well and a special mention should be made to James L who scored five as part of the seven - nil winning team.
