Hockey

Festival

Robertswood’s ‘after-school’ hockey team won the ‘Spicer’ end-of-term hockey festival at Amersham and Chalfont hockey club. They topped their ‘B’ league with two victories in their three matches against St Mary’s and Woodside. It was clear that Wednesday night hockey has had an impact on hockey at Robertswood as the team demonstrated high skill levels and a determination in play. Well done team Robertswood.

Robertswood left their best performance of the season until one of the last matches of the campaign. The visitors played with a confidence and assurance on the ball for large parts of the game. This together with fantastic teamwork and passing game as yet unseen this season, enabled them to take a comfortable two goal lead halfway through the first half. An unlucky goal  close to half-time set their confidence tumbling and the attitude and play became more desperate. The halftime break enabled the visitors to recompose themselves and similar football to the first half was played in the second half resulting in up to 20 chances. Unfortunately, not taking any of these chances meant that St Joseph‘s got back into the match and level the scores. It was great to finally see the true potential of this team finally come through. It was a pleasure to watch. Well done Robertswood.

Robertswood travelled to Butlers Court, Beaconsfield to re-commence the league season after the winter break. The visitors never really recovered after conceding two goals in the first 10 minutes. They managed to increase their confidence and organisation throughout the game and produced some good passing moves but weren’t able convert them.   If any of those chances were converted into goals, then the story could’ve been different.

Robertswood suffered the second defeat in as many days at the hands of St Joseph’s with a lacklustre display in the under 11’s second round match of the cup. Playing away from home seemed to affect their poise on the ball as they were not able to put their usual slick passing game together throughout any part of the match. Many passes were made but weren’t accurate enough meaning that moves broke down very quickly. Robertswood can look forward to the remaining league fixtures for the rest of the season.

The under 10’s played their second league/cup format match away at St Joseph‘s on Tuesday. The team played really well despite the gloomy and damp conditions and were very unlucky not to win this game but they weren’t able to put away their chances throughout the match. It means that the U10’s will have to wait on results in other leagues to see whether Robertswood can progress to knockout stages of this format, otherwise they can look forward to some friendlies in the spring.

Robertswood entertained Chalfont St Peter in their second league match the season. The home side started well setting up in a defensive formation whilst also distributing some precise passes in attack. Robertswood were rewarded with two goals within 10 minutes of the first half. The visitors got stronger as the game went on but Robertswood stayed strong and focused in defense thanks to some fantastic reaction saves from Bailey in goal. Eventually, Chalfont St Peter drew level half way through the second half but Robertswood stayed strong and managed to lead again at 3-2 before the lead was cancelled out by another equalizer. A well taken goal after a long range shot / pass gave way to a nervous final five minutes but the home side managed to hold on to a famous victory and secure their first league points of the season.

The Gerrards Cross C of E School

Robertswood under 11's played their first match of the season as part of a very competitive league ‘A’. Their first opponents couldn’t be tougher;  Gerrard's Cross. Robertswood started brightly in a defensive formation as they had to withstand wave after wave attack from a slick Gerrard's Cross team. Two well taken goals late on in the first half dented the spirited performance from the home side. Two more quickly taken goals early in the second half quickly added to a demise of composure. In addition, attitudes to one another quickly fell apart and this was compounded by loss of shape and technique. It meant that Robertswood went onto suffer their heaviest defeat in the last seven years. Hopefully, they can learn from this experience quickly and come back strongly next time and stick to the plan against their next opponents in Chalfont St Peter.

The under 10’s started their first season of playing school representative matches with a home fixture against Saint Mary's in their league/cup format. Robertswood started tentatively and went a goal behind half way through the first half. The home side grew in confidence as the game went on and drew level before half time. It took a very well taken goal for the visitors for them to run out as the winners. Robertswood will certainly learn from this experience and they should be well placed to win their next game.

PTA FUN RUN

The PTA fun run returned to the fixture list of sporting events at Robertswood on Saturday 30th September. This year included a theme of colour to add to the spectacle. The main event of the 5km run attracted a good field of parents and children (existing and ex-Robertswood pupils) and was followed by some shorter races for children. Mr Aylott was first over the line in the 5km event. The first mum was Mrs Rishiraj with Archer Davies (14th overall in a time of 28:06) crossing the line as the first current Robertswood pupil. A special mention to Mrs Tennant who organised the whole event with the help of marshals and Robertswood Rangers who provided refreshments.

Top 10 finishers

1) Tim Aylott 19:09, Will Shepherd 19:13, Andrew Seymour 19:38, Jamie Nottage 19:54, Stuart Moore 21:34, Ben White 25:06, Louis Walsh 25:06, Finn Walsh 25:19, Sushil Rishiraj 26:00, George Blood 26:10.
