Handball competition

Challock entered a Y6 team into the Ashford Schools' Handball tournament on Tuesday, 4th October, held at the Towers School. The team played incredibly well, especially since this is a sport the children are learning about without much prior experience. Our first two games ended in 4-0 victories against a St Mary's team and a Furley Park team. This meant we won our group and went into the main semi-finals! In a closely-fought match against Furley Park A team, we went 1-0 down before equalising after great team play. Furley Park, however, got another goal back and went on to win 2-1, before winning the overall event. We played Furley Park B in the 3rd place play off - this was a fantastic match, enjoyed by the players and spectators alike, which ended in a 4-4 draw! The team went into a 'golden goal' scenario, and Challock, despite not starting with the ball, managed to strike first to win 5-4 and thus win the bronze medals for the tournament.

This was a fantastic event - all the teams entered played well and in great spirits, and for the Challock team, it was an added bonus to come home with medals. Well done to the squad of Harry, Elliott, Ella, Libby, Zach, Drew, Ben, Dylan, Imogen and Puck
