First Fixtures of the season for the Year 5/6 Football Team
Thursday 26th September
Hedworth Lane v West Boldon
Written by team member Harvey Duncan (Year 6)
The first match we played was against West Boldon; we got kick off
and Lewis passed the ball straight to Harry.Then Harry
smashed it down the pitch for Jude to take a touch and
give it to me – Harvey. I took two of them on and I got past them
and gave the ball to Lewis. He shot it and the keeper just
got his fingers to the ball.
It was keeper kick for West Boldon , the ball went straight to Jude and he struck the ball. The keeper just saved it -a corner.
Lewis whipped it into the box and Jude got a header and he scored. 1-0 Hedworth Lane!
We were confident now so Jude took kick off and before I knew we were in the box and
Jude passed it to Lewis he just put it wide. I told him he’d been unlucky and patted his back.
The keeper hit the ball down the field. Harry took a touch, passed it to Josh, then
Josh played the ball through to Neve, then Neve passed it to Jude. ‘He shoots and he
scores!’ We celebrated in happiness.
In the next half, we managed to score another 2 brilliant goals (both scored by Lucas Nixon) bringing the final score to 4-0 to Hedworth Lane.
Hedworth Lane v Cleadon –final score 2-0
A great result – well done boys!
Beacon of Light – Wednesday 2nd October
The school football team played 4 matches against schools from around the Sunderland area. We demolished 3 of the teams 2-0, 4-0 and 3-1 drawing the other match 1-1. We finished top of the group. We all had a great morning. The highlight of the day was a free kick into the top corner from Jude.
Top Talent Spotted
Whilst at The Beacon of Light – two of our players were scouted by Sunderland’s Academy of Light! Well done Alfie and Lewis-good luck at the training sessions.
They join our already incredibly successful football team members who already play for the Foundation- Neve, Jude and Lucas.
Second fixtures– 3rd October
Our next 2 league matches were against Hedworthfield and West Boldon. We beat Hedworthfield 1-0. The game was littered with chances for us however we failed to them until the final 2 minutes of the game following a top corner banger from Jude.
Our disappointment was felt with a 0-0 against West Boldon. Again, we had many opportunities to score but weren’t able to capitalise and their keeper pulled out some fine saves.
We are still top of the group by 1 point and are going to focus for our next game against Cleadon in the league decider.

Hedworth Lane Girls team got off to a fantastic start to their league with four wins out of four games.
Neve Dean (captain) and Olivia Johnson played fantastically upfront scoring 8 goals between them.
Skikia Spence and Imogen Fowler were great in goal, Shikia saving a fantastic strike in the first game. Miah and AnRan played brilliantly in mid-field with Isla and Madeleine defending and clearing the ball expertly in all games.
The girls thought today we might name our team ‘The Hedworth Lane Lepoards’ ROAR!
Well done girls!
Year 4 Football Festival
On Wednesday 9th October, Y4 travelled to Boldon School to participate in a Y4 football festival. The children were split in to 3 teams, organised into groups and played 3 matches against other local schools such as East and West Boldon. Hedworth Lane A were our most successful team, coming second in their group but were just pipped at the post by West Boldon. All of the teams played their best with lots of enthusiasm and determination. It was a fantastic afternoon!
Year 5/6 Football Team – October 10th
Hedworth Lane Football Team brought back the league title following 2 convincing wins on the final day of the season. In the top of the table clash with Cleadon, goals by the Nixon twins meant the silverware was safe by the time the team played Hedworthfield, winning the final match 2-1. Celebrations were loud, fun and fully justified. Well Done lads and lasses!
ALDI Sports Kit for Schools
