Congratulations to both the junior and senior football teams who played their first match yesterday against Nether Kellet in our small schools tournament. The junior match was a closely contested match, with some good shots on goal by both teams. The final score was a 1-1 draw. Well done to the players – Seb, Ollie, Jack Carroll, Jack Livesey, John Greenall and Jamie Lowe – a good confident start to the tournament.
The senior match was again a very close affair, with Silverdale scoring in the first half (through a magnificent goal from Leo Beke) and an own goal just after half time, putting Silverdale in the lead 2-0. Nether Kellet seemed to then come alive with some good attacking and striking at goal. Luckily we had Will in goal, who held firm and defended the goal well. Nether Kellet did manage to get one goal across the line, just before the final whistle, so the result was 2-1 to Silverdale. Congratulations to Matty, Tom, Leo Scott, Jake, Leo Beke, Will, Hayden, Thea and Benjamin – let’s hope the winning continues!
Next match on Monday 10th October against Arkholme.
