Our Football Team 

Shaw vs Benyon

On Wednesday 16th October we played our first league match of the season against Benyon. The game was very close in the first half as we took the lead but Benyon scored 3 to make it 2-3 at half time. The second half saw us take control of the game with some great passing and defending even though Benyon gave it their all. We won 8-4 with goals from Bobby, Billy, Sidney and Nikita. Well done to both teams who were fantastic and represented their schools impeccably.      

Shaw vs St. Thomas 

Today we played a cup match against St. Thomas of Canterbury Primary School. This was a very tough match against a strong team. In the first half we did not play to our best and went down 5-0 by half time. After the break we came back stronger and improved our defending. We improved our passing and worked together. We lost the match but will learn from this and keep going! Well done to all who took part.  


Kenningtons Vs Shaw 

This week we played our first away match at Kenningtons. During the match we were organised and worked as a team just like we have been practicing in training. We created some good shooting opportunities during the match and passed the ball well. Unfortunately we did not come away with a win but have shown vast improvements this week and we will continue to work hard. Well done to everyone who played and thank you to those who came to support.  


Shaw vs Holy Cross 


On Wednesday 27th November we hosted a friendly match against Holy Cross. The first half saw us score first with Holy cross coming back to draw level. In the second half we scored first again with Holy Cross attacking well. It was a close game with Shaw winning after a flurry of goals close to the end of the match. Goal scorers were Billy (3), Bobby and Sidney. Well done to everyone who played!


Bonnygate vs Shaw 

League Match 

This week we played a league match against Bonnygate. This was a tight match from the beginning with both teams starting strong. Shaw took the lead early on and maintained this with some great attacking and defending. Bonnygate were awarded a penalty in the last moments of the match where they scored the equalizing goal. The game ended in a draw but we showed huge improvements in all areas of play and showed excellent sportsmanship throughout and after the game. Well done all! Our goal scorer was Nikita.
