Last night our U11 football team put in a faultless performance to defeat Ambleside 2-1 after extra time. We dominated throughout the match.  Max M-S smashed a fantastic goal to make it 1-0. They equalised late in the match from their only effort at goal. In extra time Luca V scored with 3 seconds remaining to remove the terror of a penalty shoot-out.


We are now in the final of the Chairman’s City Cup.  This will be played next week on Wednesday 4th May. (When our U10 will also be competing in their final).

Man of the match-The whole team led by Captain Isaac M were brilliant, but special mention to Hector M.

Report on ESSA East Midland regional round at Louth, Lincs on Friday 22nd April, 2016.

After a successful afternoon at NHIJS Sports Day, Isaac M, Hou Yu L, Archie G, Milad FD and Charlie V travelled for over two hours to Louth, Lincolnshire to take part in the East Midlands regional round for the national ESSA (English Schools Swimming Association) Swimming competition. Schools from five counties swim against each other for places at the national finals at Ponds Forge Sheffield. This year we were placed in the “Medium Schools” category which was actually more challenging as we were swimming against teams with boys and girls in them; the competition was tough. The first event was a straight final for the freestyle relay teams where we swam against six other strong teams and came a close third qualifying for a place at the National Finals. We were determined to get our medley team into the national finals too so everyone swam so hard to gain a place; the medley team came third which again qualified us for a place at the finals! Everyone was delighted, especially after a busy afternoon at Sports Day! Many thanks to all the parents who assisted with the travel arrangements and for all of their support. The children were an absolute credit to themselves and the school-congratulations! We look forward to seeing them swim on Saturday 18th June at the Olympic sized pool at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
