Year 4 made their first school outing at the Year 4 tournament at Holmer Green. They performed really well which is encouraging for the new football season in September as the under 10’s. The highlights were mainly around the style of football played with great passages of possession and determination in defense, and, generally, working well together as a team. Well done Year 4.

Even at the end of a short week on the return to the summer term, Robertswood’s under 10’s have already been in action finishing as runners up in their group after a much improved set of performances at the year 5 end-of-season tournament. Their desire and commitment to one another as a team coupled with some good passages of football were the main highlights from the tournament and were unlucky not to progress to the knockout stages. Well played Robertswood.

St Joseph's 1 - 0 Robertswood
Robertswood were heading towards their first points of the league campaign but suffered a last-gasp lapse in concentration which brought a lucky goal to their opponents; St Joseph’s. Robertswood started the brighter of the two sides playing some attractive football and were well organised in defence. Ultimately, Robertswood didn’t take their chances despite a lot of good endeavour on a very dry pitch. Unlucky Robertswood.
Robertswood 0 - 3 Butlers Court
Despite some great possession, passing and movement as well as some great defensive work, the home side were unable to convert their chances thanks to very assured goalkeeping from Butlers Court. It meant that Robertswood were caught on the break on a few occasions that led to winning, unanswered goals. Robertswood can be very proud of the season and the squad looks well set for a good season at the under 11 level next year
Bulters Court 7 - 2 Robertswood
Well done to Robertswood who managed to score two second half goals to draw it 2-2. Unfortunately, this came on the back of overcoming six goals conceded in the first half. Not a great day at the office. The Robertswood way making the passes count deserted the visitors for the day.
St Joseph's 0 - 1 Robertswood
Robertswood showed great character to come through a tough quarter-final tie to progress to the semi-finals. In a game where the visitors didn’t have a great deal of possession in the first five minutes, it was down to some shrewd defending to keep them in a game with a clean sheet and pounce on the only error of the game from the opposition. Robertswood took the lead 10 minutes into the game and proceeded to defend resolutely to see out the game. Robertswood looked good going forward but weren’t able to add to the advantage but it was enough to secure a semi-final game in the next fortnight.
