Thank you for Mr Hodges for coaching us and all the parents for supporting us, we had a great time.   Team: Ollie, Omari, Alfie, Stella & Emily F.   Report by Omari & Alfie. 
On Tuesday the 4th June St James B Handball team went to play a tournament at St Greggs.  The first match was against St Mathews, after a tough battle and good goals from Will and Nathan we lost 6-3.  Next we played St Johns, they had a very tall team and they were very good, but sadly even after Joshua and Cecily’s good defending we lost 8-4.  Then we had to play against St James C, after Nathan scored in the first few minutes they managed to scrape it back to win 3-1 and we had lost.  We found out we had not made it through to the semi-finals, but our other two teams had got through.  Thank you to Mr. Hodges for organising it and the parents for supporting us.  We all had a wet, but great time. Also thank you to Lawrence for bringing his umbrella!  Team: Nathan, Josh, William, Max, Evie & Cecily.  Report by: Nathan & Josh.
On 4th June, St James Handball teams went to St Greggs to play in a tournament.  Our 1st match was against St John’s A team, they won 4-1.  In our next game, against St Matthews, we played exceptionally well, Jack threw the ball up the pitch to either Zach or Gabe, who would then score.  The end result was 5-0 to us.  Next we had to play one of the other St. James’ teams, we played well and won 4-3.  We were through to the semi’s.  In the semi-final, we had to play the other St. James team.  We played well, but in the end lost 1-0.  The result took them through to the finals.  For 3rd & 4th place, we played St. Johns B.  We got 3 solid goals, but gave away 3 fouls and they scored on all 3.  The result meant we finished in joint 3rd place.  Thank you to Mr Hodges for coaching us, we all had a great time.  Team: Zach, Jack M, Gabe, Edie and Kea.  Report by Zach, Jack and Gabe.
