YEAR 6

LEWISHAM FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Downderry has representative teams in the Lewisham Football League for years 3, 4, 5 and 6 for both boys and girls. The league has been running for over 20 years and is one of the largest regular footballing events to take place in the country with around 300 children from Lewisham schools playing each week. Our teams play on a Saturday morning once every 2 or 3 weeks. Our achievements include winning the Year 6 Champions Cup in 2010, runners-up in the Year 6 Trophy in 2018, and semi-finalists in the Year 4 Cup in 2017.

OUR FIRST VICTORY

Downderry 1 v 0 Sandhurst

Downderry 0 v 3 All Saints

 

Year 6 resumed their league campaign with two tough looking games against Sandhurst and All Saints.

 

First up were Sandhurst, who started the game strongly and created a few early chances - if it wasn't for the heroics of Cristian in goal, we could have been behind. However, the boys dug in and towards the end of the first half after, from a corner, the ball broke to Hayden on the edge of the penalty area and his low powerful strike found the bottom corner and the back of the net! The second half was very much the same tight affair it had been in the first half. Thanks to resolute defending from Zach and Ivan, and hard work from the rest of the team, the boys managed to hold on for their first win of the season.

 

Our second game was a lot tougher against All Saints, who took an early lead, despite their efforts our boys. In truth, we were looking tired and All Saints took full advantage of this by scoring another two goals in the second half. If wasn't for our defenders Zach and Ivan and the last line of defence Christian, it could have been a lot worse as they gave everything to protect our goal at every opportunity. All in all, it was a great performance from year 6 on the day as they showed real character and resolve.

FOOTBALL SUCCESS!

On Tuesday, our year 6 boys' team attended a football festival at Whitefoot Lane Playing Fields. All matches were very close but Downderry performed brilliantly and were able to win ALL their matches and, therefore, the overall competition. Wearing their medals home, it was a great way to start the season. Well done to all the players.
