East Preston Junior School

Netball/Football v St Margaret's

In an usual twist of events, EPJS played 2 games in an evening against rivals St Margaret’s, in the latest round of fixtures. The weather and a mole infestation had postponed the earlier matches, and to relieve the fixture pile up, a double header was agreed.

This enabled EP to field 2 different sides - a year 5 team and a year 6 team in the football.  Mr Smith took charge of 2 very close encounters under the full spectrum of weather conditions- rain, sun and wind!


Game 1: East Preston 0 - 1 St Margaret's

Game 2: St Margaret's 0 - 1 East Preston

The Year 5 team missed out closely in a 1-0 defeat, but this was shortly avenged by a 1-0 victory by their older counterparts - meaning  both sides were able to walk away with heads held high.


Game 1: East Preston 6 - 1 St Margaret's

Game 2: St Margaret's 4 - 8 East Preston

In the netball, our Year 9 sports leaders from Angmering presided over 2 victories. Following on from their locality tournament win, the girls continued their impressive run.

Our thanks go to Miss Norcross for organising the games and the St Margaret’s players who played in a great spirit.  Thanks go to Miss Rose, Mrs Rollins and Mrs Simmons for organising refreshments and Mr Rogers for setting up the pitches.

Evie stated,

In our home match against St Margaret's, we won both games and we are all proud of each other. Phoebe stepped in as our Goal Attack in the absence of our usual player, and she did a great job! Our team has grown more confident and seems to be getting better and better in each match.


Ruby added,

We are all so proud of each other for trying our best; we won both of our games against St Margaret's with Phoebe making her mark by scoring lots of goals, followed by Olivia T. Megan, returned to the side and is part of our winning streak. So far it has been a very successful year - following in the footsteps of the previous successful Year 6 team.
