U13’s Football Match vs Forres Sandle Manor – 12th October

Match Report

Moyles Court took part in an 11-a-side fixture against FSM and were in very high spirits before the game. The boys trained well before kick-off and worked on pressing the opposition high up the pitch, which they then carried out successfully in the match. Bobby was instrumental today as he helped press the opposition into making mistakes, with Alex setting the tone for the match by winning a few early tackles. Moyles Court counter-attacked really well and looked dangerous from corner kicks. Thomas scored with an excellent volley in what proved to be the most visually appealing goal of the game. Goals from Bobby and Harry saw Moyles Court School go into half-time leading 3-0.

The back five of Oliver in goal, Oscar and Joe as centre-backs with Archie on the left and Leo on the right proved to be a force to be reckoned with as they continually broke up the opposition’s attacks, preventing FSM from having any real shots on goal. Oliver’s quick distribution and Harry’s pace combined in the second half and saw Harry finish the game with a hat-trick of three finely taken goals to his name, with the third one resulting after a fine solo-run. Moyles Court were flawless to a man and kept a very hard earned clean sheet in what was a textbook definition of how to play away from home. One of the finest performances that will be seen this season, involving Moyles Court colours.  Well done team!

Man of the Match: Harry

U11’s Football Match vs Avondale – 12th October

Match Report

Moyles Court lost an early goal but responded well. Lewis saved a penalty after a handball in the area and Rohan again worked tirelessly and made several excellent tackles. Tommy became our most improved player making tackles of his own and intercepting attacks with good headers.

In midfield Harrison ran past the opposition with guile and flair, and for the third week in a row only the woodwork could stop him from scoring excellent goals that would have won us the match.

A late deflected free kick meant the score line favoured the opposition 3 goals to one, but on the balance of play Moyles Court deserved more from the game and on another day could easily have won.

 Man of the Match: Harrison

U 11’s BCS 6-a-side Football Tournament – 5th October

Match Report

After making the final at their last tournament, Moyles Court arrived at BCS playing with confidence and worked hard to support each other as best they could.

Unfortunately things didn’t go our way on this occasion, and we lost the first game due to a suspicious handball decision, for which the children deserve credit for handling the situation in a sporting and mature manner.

Games 2 and 3 were against excellent opposition, and despite some industrious defending from Rohan and Tommy, Moyles Court weren’t quite able to make a lasting impression on either game, but Evan made several good saves to keep the scores competitive.

In the Quarter Finals Moyles Court scored a superb team goal that involved every player on the pitch and ended with a one-two pass between Jack and Harrison before the ball was rifled into the net. Unfortunately they conceded two late goals from set-pieces and know what areas they can work on before their next match.

Man of the Tournament: Rohan

Y6/5 Moyles Court Football Match vs Park School – 28th September

Match Report

Moyles Court participated in an away football fixture against Park School. Team Moyles have happy memories of this fixture from last season as Jack scored 4 and Harrison netted 3 as the team beat Park 9-2, so they were looking to put in another impressive performance this time around. Moyles Court had the majority of the ball and looked dangerous every time they went forward. In truth, this was a fantastic all-round performance with Harrison bossing the game from midfield, Rohan marshalling the defence and Jack creating several decent chances for himself. Three quick goals before half-time saw Moyles Court go into the interval three-nil up, with 2 impressive goals from Jack, one of which was thanks to an assist by debutant Oscar. However, the score-line should have been double that as Moyles Court spurned a hatful of promising chances. Freddie played well on the right hand side and could have scored several of his own.

The second half saw Park come into the game a bit more and they scored a well-deserved goal midway through the second half to make it 3-1. However, Harrison grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and forced an own-goal from Park before finding the net himself to make the final score 5-1. Again, the score should have been closer to double figures had Moyles Court made the most of their chances. This was a fantastic and in-control performance by the boys and they were feeling slightly disappointing at the full-time whistle that they had not produced an even more impressive scoreline.

Final score: Moyles Court 5 – 1 Park School

Man of the Match: Harrison

U9’s BCS 6-a-side Football tournament – 28th September

Match Report

Moyles Court played fantastically in their opening three group games. Caleb was strong in defence, and Finley scored three goals in two games to ensure Moyles Court qualified second in a tough group and progressed to the quarter finals.

There they met BCS’s A-team, who were labelled as the team to beat. The game was a well contested and evenly fought affair, but a superb 25 yard thunderbolt from a BCS player meant Moyles Court were eliminated despite playing some of the best football seen in the tournament. Bradley and Evan made sterling contributions throughout, and Mr Hosking was proud of how the entire team worked together and the standard of football they produced.

Man-of-the-Match: Finley




Moyles Court 6-a-side Football Tournament Match Reports

Match Report: U11 MCS vs Forres Sandle Manor

Moyles Court battled bravely but lost their first game against the strongest team in the competition. They then outplayed FSM only for a dubious penalty decision to be awarded against them and cause a one sided game to end 1-1.

Moyles Court were unable to progress from the group in the top two positions, but went through to the Plate Competition where a fantastic team display and brilliantly executed tactics saw them press the opposition and not allow them any time on the ball. Rohan Moss worked tirelessly, Evan and Adam  battled bravely and Harrison elegantly displayed why he was arguably the most talented player on display throughout the entire tournament.

The team won two games comfortably to make it through to the final, avenging their 7-0 loss to LHS the previous week with a super 2-0 win in the semi-finals.  Finley played well and Lewis made some good saves, whilst Tommy and Jack fought right to the end, but sadly Moyles Court lost 2-0 in the final to some truly terrific team goals.  They can hold their heads up high for making the final, and Mr Hosking couldn’t be prouder of the improvements they have shown since their opening game of the season.

Moyles Court’s Man of the Tournament: Harrison
U13’s Moyles Court 6-a-side Football Tournament

 Match Report: MCS vs Durlston
Moyles Court gave a very good account of themselves and were organised effectively defensively despite having never previously played a tournament together. For many of this team, this was their first competitive fixture for Moyles Court. Bobby made a number of good saves to keep the scores even and Joe and Oscar kept their attackers at bay. However, an unfortunate goal-keeping error led to Durlston scoring the winning goal and the game finished 1-0.  Man of the Match: Bobby

MCS vs Dumpton
Bobby and Jaime swapped positions to allow both to experience the goal-keeping and outfield positions. Unfortunately, the tactic didn’t go to plan and Moyles Court let in two goals in quick succession. The 3-0 final score was harsh on Moyles Court, who were much more attacking in this game and had fashioned some very good chances.  Man of the Match: Joe
MCS vs Port Regis
Moyles Court began this game on the front foot and looked very lively in the opening minute. Much of the attacking play was by the home team. However, disaster struck as the opposition counter-attacked and scored against the run of play.  Moyles Court more than held their own and were unlucky to concede two late goals when attempting to find a way back into the match.Final score 3-0

Man of the Match: Oscar

MCS vs Leehurst Swan
Moyles Court played their best overall game, with Bradley and Leo looking impressive and much more comfortable as the tournament progressed. Jaime was very dangerous on the left wing with Alex and Gabriel linking up well to create a range of decent chances. Leehurst Swan took the lead against the run of play and quickly grabbed a second goal.  However, Moyles Court immediately looked more aggressive after the kick-off and scored within minutes as Alex and Gabriel linked up nicely on the right before Gabriel slotted in from close range.  Moyles Court then dominated the rest of the game and were unlucky not to grab a well-deserved equaliser.  Final score: Moyles Court 1 – 2 LHS

Man of the Match: Gabriel

U16’s Moyles Court 6-a-side Football Tournament

Match Report

Moyles Court played three games against Leehurst Swan, BCS ‘’A’’ and BCS ‘’B’’. Although we lost all three games narrowly, there were some notable performances from Jacob Smith who in midfield was our main playmaker, Harry who defended solidly throughout the tournament, Aidan who showed excellent ball skills in all the games and Josh who in goal made numerous saves that kept us in the games. Despite some aggression at times from the opposition, Moyles Court displayed great sportsmanship and their application and effort throughout the tournament was exemplary.

Man of the Match: Jacob and Harry

U11 Football vs Leehurst Swan – 14th September

Moyles Court started well and attacked the ball well. Unfortunately Leehurst Swan scored two excellent early goals, and Moyles Court saw a Harrison’s free kick thunder off the crossbar, before a goal mouth scramble came agonisingly close before the opposition were able to clear.

As the match progressed Lewis made some good saves.  Tommy and Rohan worked tirelessly right up until the end and the entire team deserve credit for their enthusiasm and hard work. Things could have quite easily gone their way with a bit of luck earlier in the match.

Final score: Leehurst Swan 7 – Moyles Court – 0

U11 and U10 Hockey v The Park – 14th September

Match Report

 Today was the first hockey fixture for the season, the first fixture for our year 5 girls, and the first fixture for the year 5’s and 6’s together.  The girls had only 2 hockey lessons prior to the match and they played fantastically.

The new Year 5 girls have learnt quickly how to play in a competitive situation, with Phoebe and Ruby supporting Izabella brilliantly in defence, clearing the ball time and time again to stop The Park girls scoring.

We were playing on a very different 4G pitch which is not what our girls are used to, and although they found it difficult to get a lot of power behind their passes, Amelie and Victoria were able to both score for Moyles Court, and Lola was unlucky to have a further goal uncounted  during the second half.

A fabulous start to the season, and I look forward to seeing this team progress over the term.

 Final Score  U 11 Moyles Court – 2 The Park – 4

Captain : Lola Cuckney

 Players of the Match: Amelie and Victoria

U11’s Cricket Match vs Avondale School – 8th June, 2016

Match Report

On a blazing hot summer’s afternoon, Moyles Court’s U – 11’s proved that hard work pays off and that they have all, to a man, made great improvements since the start of the cricket season.

Jack and Alex opened the batting and showed patience as they dealt well with a quick and strong opening bowling partnership. Once Jack was dismissed Harrison came to the crease but had to retire hurt two balls later after receiving a vicious beamer straight to the side of his helmet.

Bobby and Lewis were out quickly to the same quick bowler, but Evan played some tremendous shots during a brave innings that saw him refuse to be intimidated by the lively pitch and the fast bouncers flying inches past his nose. Tommy and Rohan also played well and Alex batted throughout the innings to help leave Moyles Court with their best ever total of 58 off the full 16 overs.

When bowling Jack got two wickets in two balls, and Moyles Court took numerous catches in the field, not dropping or missing a single opportunity that also included two run outs. Lewis and Tommy worked hard behind the stumps and showed improved concentration and technique. Harrison returned from his injury to bowl well, and he formed good partnerships with Evan and Bobby. Adam and Abdul also fielded well and were valuable additions to the team.

Finally, with several wickets down and just a few overs remaining, the opposition formed a tremendous partnership and just scraped over the line with a few balls to spare. Despite not winning, Mr Hosking couldn’t be prouder of the U11 team, their improvements, sporting attitude and desire to support each other. They deserved to win, but sometimes a close loss, played in the right way, can be even more satisfying than an easy win.

Men-of-the-Match: Alex and Jack
