Football - U11 A vs Prettygate
Homlwood's fourth match of term was against Prettgate Junior School. Holmwood struggled against a strong opposition and with many of their team playing football at the weekend this is always a difficult fixture. Holmwood tried out a new formation which gave Jack E some more support in defence. E Slater was his normal energetic self in the centre of midfield chasing and pressurising and looking to take on defenders when ever possible.

Final Score Holmwood 0 Prettygate 5
Solid defending, goalkeeping and taking our chances, saw Holmwood House U11B win an exciting and even match. Henry M pounced on a loose ball to convert. Prettygate equalized with a slick counter attack. A goalie error via Henry M restored the Holmwood House lead, well supported by Edward T, Balian R and Ashton P. Toby F linked well and scored from a long range shift. Super saves from Oscar S and timely tackles from Harry R-L, James B and Jack T prevented the skillful Prettygate from getting back in the game. Well done to the squad.
