Year 6 Boy’s Knock-Out Match vs Cardinal Newman
On Tuesday, a team of Year 6 boys played their second match of the week when they travelled to Cardinal Newman to play the first knock-out round of the ERPSSA football tournament. The game was an exciting one and the Ashley team played incredibly well together. We made a fast start with Joe finding the top corner from just inside the box before Charlie added a second with a neat finish. Cardinal Newman pulled a goal back before Daniel grabbed another to re-establish our three goal lead. In the second-half the game continued in a similar fashion: Max (x2), Charlie and Freddie added great goals and Cardinal Newman could only add a consolation. Full-time score was Ashley 7 – 2 Cardinal Newman.
Well done to Jack H, Joe, Freddie, Toby, Daniel, Charlie, Jack S, Benji, Harry and Max.
Year 5/6 Girls Match vs Pyrcroft
On Tuesday 26th November Ashley Girls’ Football Team played a match against Pyrcroft Grange. It was a hard battle of a game with our amazing goalkeeper Jaia saving every shot Pyrcroft took. Great credit also needs to be given to our defenders Chloe and Stephanie, for their excellent tackling of every player who tried to attack. Iris, Olivia and Emily were excellent in midfield and worked hard throughout to try and break-down the opposition. Sienna also played well and worked very hard upfront and created a number of chances during the game. In the end, a draw was probably a fair result – the game finished 0-0.
Year 6 Boy’s Match vs St Jude’s
On the 25th of November 2019 a team of Year 6 boys played away against St Jude’s in Egham. The team made a great to start to the match and found themselves 2-0 up at half-time with goals from Daniel and Charlie. Despite great performances all-round, the second half slipped away from Ashley as St Jude’s produced a great fight-back and took a 3-2 lead in the closing stages. Unfortunately, with the light fading fast, there was no time for a Liverpool-style late comeback and the game finished 3-2.
Well played Charlie, Dan, Jack H, Jack S, Max, Benji, Harry, Freddie, Joe and Toby.

Year 6 Boy’s Match vs Manorcroft
On Monday the 11th of November, Ashley Year 6 boys played away against Manorcroft School in Egham. Despite the final score line of 8-1 to Manorcroft, the teams were actually very evenly matched; we didn’t take our opportunities at goal that we worked hard to create. It was a very physical match between the two sides and we all learnt a lot from that. Our goal was scored by Dan and assisted by Phoenix. A lovely ball was played over the top of the opposition team by Phoenix (from his own half) and Daniel was able to run onto to it, take a touch and smash it past the opposition’s keeper.
Well done to Toby, Dan, Phoenix, Sam, Guy, George, Alex and Joshua.

Year 5 Netball Match vs. Notre Dame

Ashley got off to a great start in the first quarter, with Izzy scoring our first goal, making it 1-0. In the second quarter Notre Dame levelled out the score, making it a draw. However, Ashley came back fighting with Ollie scoring a beautiful goal and soon after Sienna scoring a penalty shot, making it 3-1. Everyone was feeling great by the end of the first half. Going into the second half, Ashley were feeling eager and enthusiastic! Notre Dame came out, ready to put up a fight and scored their second and final goal. To Ashley team’s amazement, they also scored another two goals in the third quarter, both of which were shot by Amelie. In our final quarter, Chloe and Sophie. W scored two more goals, making the end result 7-2 to Ashley. All of the team played fantastically, with Anna playing her first match and making beautiful passes and keeping on her toes and Sophie.

Year 5 Football Match vs. Cleves School
As the Ashley Year 5 boys football team left to make the walk to Cleves school, we were really nervous, but excited to play our first match. Ashley had the advantage in the first half, but we failed to score due to some good saves by the Cleves keeper. Cleves went for an amazing long shot which Oliver punched over the bar. In the second half the whole Ashley team continued to work hard, to talk to each other and pass the ball well. Joe and Luke, with some amazing teamwork, set up the chance for Joe, which he took, to make it 1-0. Only a few minutes later, Will struck the ball into the net to make it 2-0. This was the final score and we were all so happy to end our first match as winners!
Well done to Oliver. C, Joe, Will, Josh, Charlie, Alex, Luke, Max and Damin.

Year 6 Football Match vs. Cleves School
On Monday 21st October, a team of Year 6 boys travelled to Cleves for their first league match of the season. The team played well throughout on a tricky pitch filled bumps and bobbles. Ashley started well and created a couple of good chances which unfortunately weren’t taken. The Cleves side were very strong and had played a game already. Despite all of Ashley’s best efforts (and some great goalkeeping by Harry M), Cleves ended up winning 8-0.
Well done to Daniel, Max, Charlie, Jack S, Jack H, Benjy, Harry and Freddie,

Year 5 Netball Match vs. Cobham Free School
When we saw CFS arrive, we were very excited but also nervous. We recognised some of our friends from cubs which settled our nerves as we knew we were playing against friends. It was a very tense first half with neither team scoring. The second half began with two good goals from CFS, but we defended well and got the ball back to our shooters, Sophie quickly scored an amazing goal. Both teams came out fighting for the final quarter, in order to win the match. In the final minute Ollie intercepted the ball and scored an amazing goal, meaning the final score of the match was 3-2 to CFS. It was a brilliant game and both sides played incredibly well. We are looking forward to our next match.
Well done to Sophie W, Chloe, Connor, Amelie, Ella, Bella, Sienna, Ollie, Sophie!
