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.

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.

Robertswood girls took part in the end of season tournament, along with many other local schools. We were grouped with Chalfont St Peter Academy, St Marys GX 2, Gayhurst School and Gerrards Cross School in the first round. Robertswood won 3 games and lost 1 so we came second in the group. In the second round, we played Heatherton House, St Mary’s GX 1, St Joseph’s school and Little Kingshill. Robertswood played well and we lost 1, drew 1 and won 2 games which meant we ranked third overall, narrowly missing out on medals.

 

Robertswood girls played fantastically and worked so well as a team.

Robertswood exited the under 10 competition at the semi-final stage after a brave display against a well-organised and physically stronger opposition. Robertswood were on the back foot straight from the kick-off but did quickly get into a defensive stride, defending wave after wave of attack. It meant that home side struggled to find their attacking form and structure and provide through-balls for their lone striker. Robertswood did have a solitary chance which came in the first half but it whistled past the post. The second half saw more of the same but even fewer chances. The season as a whole provided some great learning points for the team which can be put into practice next season.

Robertswood bounced back well from their disappointing exit from the cup to dominate in their latest league match. A really good attacking display was only spoiled by two goals conceded early in the second half, having been 3-0 up at half-time. These goals seem to spur the home side on again, however, as they went on to score an additional 5 goals and improve their goal difference on Little Chalfont, the leaders of the league.

Robertswood played well and were the better team for most of it but let a poor goal in early in the game and then another late on as they were pushing for the equalizer. The visitors lost 2-0 in the end due to an inspired effort by the home side’s  goalkeeper and now look forward to concentrating their efforts on the remainder of the league campaign.

Robertswood U11 played their second league match of the season away at Farnham Common. In what is believed to be the first ever meeting between the two U11 sides, the visitors dominated the match from the start and ran out comprehensive winners. It was very pleasing to see so many goals being scored by the visitors but keeping a clean sheet was equally pleasing and will give them confidence going into future matches. The result also helps the goal difference which could come in useful when deciding the league champions at the end of the season.

Robertswood grew in confidence as the game progressed and were unlucky not to be leading at half time. They dominated large parts of the second half but two late  goals from the visitors mean that there is a nervous wait to see whether Robertswood progress through to the knockout phase of the under 10 competition.

The under 10’s started their first season of playing school representative matches with an away trip to Saint Mary's in Beaconsfield in their league/cup format. Robertswood started brightly taking an early lead thanks to a brave header from George Sumner from a corner three minutes into the game. The visitors somewhat rested on their laurels after that and allowed St Mary's back into the game and they should've drawn level but for some inaccurate shots at goal. Robertswood went into the break 2-1 up. After the break, St Mary's had the best chances and grew stronger in confidence whilst Robertswood had a number of chances that weren't taken. Finally, though, the third goal was scored to settle this fixture.

The under 11's played their first league match at home against Little Chalfont. The home side came up against a well organised side who boosted an undefeated under 10/11 season coming into this fixture. So, there were no surprises that the home side were always chasing the game. Robertswood’s attack works well but work will be needed on the defensive side in future matches if the under 11’s want to register their first points of the season.

It saw Robertswood travel to Holmer Green and play out a close game. Robertswood managed to keep their noses ahead in a game where the visitors would score and then the home side would draw level. Robertswood managed to be ahead at the sound of the full time whistle and progress to the next round to face The Stoke Poges School who will provide stiff opposition in home tie.

Honours even after both teams recorded victories in the spring sunshine of Robertswood. Both games were very competitive with Robertswood showing a determination to win and working well for each other. The points scored over the two fixtures are a measure of how far netball has come on at Robertswood in the last year. Netball is rapidly becoming the game of choice on the playground as the school continues to be successful against other schools.

The unbeaten run had to come to an end at some point. It was such a shame that it had to come in reaching a second consecutive semi-final of a cup competition, in what looks like to be the final match of the season.  Despite the majority of possession, and chances, Robertswood found themselves 3-0 soon after half time and having to chase the game. Unfortunately, the fact of the game was that Butler’s Court secured a victory as a result of converting their limited number of opportunities coupled with some of the luck going their way. Ironically, the large deficit seemed to provoke even better plays and the number of opportunities in front of goal. This was finally rewarded with a consolation goal and if another half could have been played out then, who knows? The under 11 team can be proud of the last couple of seasons, and a run that saw them go undefeated in twelve; it was the thirteenth match that proved one too far. In the meantime, they head their league with other school’s playing out their matches so another title should be in the bag to go with the under 10 cup success

Netball was firmly placed on the Robertswood sporting map with two crushing wins in a ‘friendly fixture against St Joseph’s. Both teams played with great energy, determination and a fantastic awareness for each other to create wave after wave of attack which translated into points. Scorelines could have easily been in double figures if all the chances had been taken. In defense, the Year 5 and 6’s were good at anticipating moves from the opposition, intercepting their passes and converting these into additional pressure. A year after Saturday netball was launched and Robertswood are putting in performances that should give even the strongest oppositions a challenge. Well done girls.

As suspected, the oppositions are getting much harder as Robertswood progress through the competition this year as the one-nil score line suggests.  Even though there were not a lot of goals for the home side, their performance represented one of the best of the season in terms of team work; working well for each other in attack as well as defense. The goal came mid-way through the first half giving the home side the confidence to attack more and the motivation to work hard to protect their slender lead. As well as team work, individual performances helped make the difference and Joshua Tindley’s performance in goal was the stand out individual reason why Robertswood were successful.

Robertswood won their 11th match in a row despite trying to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory. The home side looked comfortable enough going into the second half with a two goal lead. But the score line did read 3-2 well into the second half as Robertswood literally handed the visitors with opportunities. Henry Kite settled the nerves and the tie with a fourth goal to re-establish the two goal advantage with three minutes left on the clock.

Robertswood came from behind and left it late to go through to the quarter finals of the under 11 cup competition. In fairness, Robertswood were unlucky to go behind mid-way through the first half. The second half saw a more determined and composed Robertswood performance.  Joshua Tindley kept the home side in the game allowing for a deflected Robertswood goal to keep the tie alive. It took a late, late winner from Jack Holt to secure victory with under one minute of the game remaining. Robertswood travel away to Our Lady's Catholic Primary School in Amersham after half term.

Unfortunately, Robertswood were not one of the lucky runners up in their respective league and do not progress in their cup/league format. A friendly has been tentatively organized with The Stoke Poges School for after half-term.

The under 11’s had to come from 2-0 to record a historic win before the winter break. Robertswood were unable to break down the home side’s defence thanks to the efforts of their goal keeper and, in the meantime, conceded two first – half goals. A hat-trick, courtesy of Ben Stallard, meant that Robertswood were able to overturn the deficit in the second half and record a 9th win across all forms of football through year 5 and year 6. History in the making. Well done Robertswood.

The under 11’s winning streak* continued in their second league match of the season. (* a winning streak that combines the under 10 season with the wins in the under 11 season which equals 8). A full strength Robertswood team dominated proceedings in the encroaching dusk of Burnham. 4-0 represented a dominate display against a team that did not provide too much resistance. That said, stiffer oppositions are just round the corner in the league and cup formats of the under 11’s season if they want to create history of 9 unbeaten games across an under 10 and under 11 season. .

A goal in the last 30 seconds denied Robertswood their second win in a row. A close game saw chances at both ends with either team guaranteed of progression in the competition with a win. The pressure of the situation seemed to permeate onto the players on the pitch. That said, Robertswood certainly dominated the second half with a lot more energy and determination. Ultimately, there were chances that were not converted and a scrambled effort from the opposition close to time was the difference. We will need to wait and see whether Robertswood go through to the knock out stages as one of the lucky runners up.

The year 5’s took part in their first ever competitive game for Robertswood and opened their account with a competent display. Although the home side scored early, it took a long time for them add to their advantage as nerves and excitement mixed together to disrupt the flow of the early exchanges. The under 10’s look well placed to progress to the knock out stages of the competition if they can win their final group match in a fortnight. They will have learned a lot from this first outing and look to improve away at Chartridge.

That said, there should have been more goals for the visiting team with the chances that were created. Still, another winning match under the belt and they will learn from this for the next match.

The Under 11’s started their 14/15 campaign with an unconvincing win away from home in the first round of the cup. A slightly below par strength team had to rely on penalties to get past one of the stronger opponents in the local area. Clearly, the year 6 season will be more of a challenge in both the cup and league formats over the course of the year. But, it was still a win and hopes are kept alive for long cup run.  Attention turns to the league as soon as tomorrow.
