Merseyside and National Cup Clash

Year 7 MCSFA: a closely contested game against West Derby High School, with both teams giving 100% and neither team deserving to be behind.

 

However, Chesterfield had a poor 10 minutes in the middle of the game where they conceded 3 goals. After that, the game was even but Chesterfield just had too much to do. Well done to West Derby. CHS 0-3 West Derby.

Year 9 NSFA: a nervous start to the game from both teams as Chesterfield had a few players missing and had to play key players out of position. Despite the nervous start, the return of Joe Hughes gave us goals upfront.

 

With brilliant grit and determination from the midfield, Chesterfield went on to score goal after goal and everyone go in on the act. Chesterfield move onto the next round convincingly. Well done, Mr. Ward. CHS 12-0 All Saints.

Bronze Medal for Evan Kelly

Evan Kelly in year 9 who competes for England in kickboxing gained a Bronze medal in points fighting for his weight and age in a recent competition in Jamaica.

Unfortunately there were no competitors Evans’ weight and age in his Continuous Category.  Evan, therefore, made the brave decision to move up a weight. Again, he gained a Bronze medal.

What a fantastic achievement and the pupils and staff at Chesterfield are immensely proud.

Well done, Evan!
