Football A Team: St James A Team v Southborough 
 On Wednesday 6th February 2019, St. James Football A Team played against Southborough, at Southborough.  We started off with a few shots on target, but no goals.  With only five minutes to go to half time, Southborough scored an amazing goal.  The score at half time was 0-1.  After a team talk, we went back out and battled even harder; finally we got a goal from Alfie L.  Shortly after Jonathan threw the ball up the pitch to Oliver W, he kept the ball on the pitch and shot the ball, hitting one of the Southborough players before going into the net for an own goal. In the last minutes of the game, Southborough managed to get another goal.  The whistle blew and the final score was 2-2.  Thank you to Mr Hodges for coaching us and to all the parents who came and supported us.  We all had a great time.  Team: Zach, Jack M, Gabe, Ollie H, Ollie W, Omari, Alfie L, Alfie S & Jonathan.  Report by: Zach & Jack.  Mr Hodges reported it had been a good game, on a very muddy pitch.
