Football Finals News


I am extremely proud to report that our Year 5/6 girls’ football team took part in the U11 Girls’ Midland Regional Football Finals on Saturday 25th March 2017 at Nottingham University after qualifying for the event earlier on in the year.  Representing Staffordshire, our girls were up against teams from ten other counties, ranging from Humberside in the North to Worcestershire in the South and to Shropshire in the West.  Our team were placed in a league of 6 and the results were as follows:

Five Ways vs Witton Middle School (Worcestershire) WON 1-0

Five Ways vs Millway Primary School (Northamptonshire) WON 3-0

Five Ways vs Walkington Primary School (Humberside) WON 2-1

Five Ways vs Long Bennington Primary School (Lincolnshire) DREW 0-0

Five Ways vs Claverdon Primary School (Warwickshire) DREW 0-0

The event was very well supported by parents, Mr Redpath, Mrs Marsh and Mr Newey.  Mr Redpath wrote ‘Finishing on 11 points, with inspirational captain Milly Round scoring 5 goals and Grace Whittall scoring 1, our girls qualified for the semi-finals. Having given it absolutely everything, we lost 1-0 to the eventual winners, St George’s Junior School from Shropshire.  In summing up, a truly inspirational, inspiring day that was down to the 9 girls who represented Five Ways.  The enthusiastic and heartfelt support of parents and family, and the desire and commitment of the PE staff who attended the event made for such a magnificent performance!’  On behalf of the Five Ways community, I would like to congratulate the team on their performance and thank Mr Redpath, Mrs Marsh and Mr Newey for their commitment to sport at Five Ways.  Well done everyone!

Cross Country News


Some Y3 and Y4 pupils took part in a Cross Country competition on 3rd November 2016.  The teams all ran very well and persevered to the finish line, even when they wanted to stop!  I am pleased to report that the Y4 girls' and boys' teams have now qualified for the Level 3 competition at Keele university due to take place in the summer term. Sadly, the Y3 teams just missed out on a place in the Level 3 event. I would like to take this opportunity to say well done to each competitor and also to say how proud we are of everyone that took part.
