Monday, September 12th
On Monday we hosted a fantastic game of soccer between the RAS and Repton Under 11 teams. I believe this is the first Inter-School Sports fixture for quite some time here at RAS. It is so good to see our students back into the fray of competitive sports.
Both teams approached the game with outstanding sportsmanship and endeavor. It was a hot afternoon but our students gave their all in a generally even-sided game. Repton won the game 3-0 but our squad of players combined well and were very unlucky not to score.
Our goalies did a tremendous job with some particularly excellent saves by Eric, William, and Bertie.
Brian, Chloe, and Jiwon played very well during their time in the midfield, and Sam, Thomas, and King were solid in defense. Yuhwa, Soy, Ali, and Klarissa also made good contributions around the ground as we rotated players and positions throughout the game.
A massive thank you to Secondary students Alfie Taylor, for doing an excellent job of refereeing, and Aidan Kinchington, for his support on the sidelines.
The support from families and staff at RAS was great to see and thank you to the Senior Ex-Com students who were selling drinks and snacks at the game. We certainly appreciated the ice-cold drinks after the game.
It was an excellent afternoon all around and we are looking forward to our next games. (There is no game on Monday, September 19th)
On Monday, September 26th we travel to Marlborough, and then on Monday, October 3rd we play against Crescendo here at RAS.
We hope to see many members of the RAS community at these games to once again support our young players.
