The year 7 football team have a busy week this week! On Monday they travelled to Ripon Grammar School to play RGS and Outwood Academy in the league competition. There were some real positives to come out of the fixtures including some strong defensive work, excellent composure on the ball and the ability to play out from the back. The results didn’t all go Nidds way but on another day it could have been so different
Nidderdale 0-0 Outwood Ripon
Nidderdale 1-3 Ripon Grammar School
After 2 failed attempts to get the game played due to bad weather, the year 8 football team finally made the trip to Harrogate High School for their next league fixture. Although going down 3-1 (Freddie Howard with the goal) there were lots of positives to take from the game in cold and wet conditions. Man of the match (voted for by the lads) was shared between Ben Beresford and Jack Warne
Monday saw the under 14/year 9 football team travel to Rossett for a fixture in the league competition. The weather was extremely cold with snow falling at regular intervals during the match. It was a fantastic game and an excellent result which saw Nidderdale come out on top 4-2 (Adam Benson x3 and Benji Howard the goal scorers).
Superb effort from the lads in challenging conditions and bouncing back from their previous defeat!
After the round of house competitions the week leading up to Christmas, the results have meant a change to the standings. Pen-y-Ghent had a very good December racking up a massive amount of points and have taken the overall lead. Just 4 more weeks until the next round…
