Court Fields took 3 teams to the friendly Year 7 CVL basketball tournament hosted at Castle School. The girls worked hard playing 4 matches and rotated subs accordingly. Great teamwork from all involved and all teams won many matches. Lot’s of hoops scored from all teams and I witnessed some excellent hoops scored from Tamsin, Olivia and Paulina. Well done to all involved! Miss Gibbins.

Well done to all involved! Superstars!
Yr 7 basketball team played in their first basketball tournament. 3 teams, all teams won, lost and drew. Well done to all involved! Miss Lees
A great game vs Bishop Foxes on a cold afternoon in November. The first half saw Court Fields with some great attacking play from Bethan and Tenika and at half time the girls were only 2-1 down. A quick change to strengthen up the defence with a addition of a GK which really affected the game. Cracking saves and defensive work in the 2nd half and a fantastic team goal ended the game in a 4-2 loss. Well done to all involved! Miss Gibbins
A great game vs Bishop Foxes on a cold afternoon in November ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw vs Bishop Foxes. Great defensive play from Bianca and Georgia and some well worked attacking play from Zoe/Evie. Both goals scored by midfielder Lauren! Well done to all involved! Miss Gibbins
Football Tournament @Yeovil FC
Court Fields were one of over 25 talented schools from all over the South West who made the journey to Yeovil FC on Friday, knowing that the winners would represent their school and Yeovil Town FC in the EFL Schools Cup this year. The EFL Schools Cup Final will be played at Wembley. Court Fields were drawn in Group 1 which consisted of 9 teams, with only the top two going through. The girls did exceptionally well in the group stages, managing to top their group and go through to the quarter finals where they met Selwood (Frome). The quarter final was a pretty one-sided affair with Court Fields showing their class and taking an early lead through Kenzie. However, Selwood’s goalkeeper was having a fantastic game and managed to keep them in the game. In the last minute of the game Court Fields were caught napping and allowed Selwood into score with a good long-range strike. Penalties followed and through some fantastic saves from Bathan in the Court Fields goal, they progressed to the Semi Finals.
In the semi-finals they met last year’s winners Budmouth College (Weymouth). The semi- final was an end-to-end game with neither side being able to break down each other in normal time and it was a penalty shootout yet again (just when Mr Conway’s heart rate had just returned to normal from the previous shootout). However, the girls kept their nerve and yet again Bethan pulled off some great saves to send last year’s winner home and put Court Fields into the final against Preston School (Yeovil). The final was an end-to-end game played at an extremely high intensity. Both teams had very good chances, only to be thwarted by two excellent goalkeepers. With one minute remaining and penalties looming yet again, Kenzie went through on goal and stuck the ball in the top corner…1-0 in the final to Court Fields. The girls held off the last Preston attack and the full time whistle signalled a fantastic win for the girls and Court Fields School. More important than the win was the fantastic attitude all the girls showed and how proud they were to represent Court Fields. The girls will now go through to represent Court Fields and Yeovil Town FC in the Southern Finals Tournament where a place at Wembley is at stake. Well done girls, a very proud coach and Head of Year.
Team: Bethan, Tenika, Halle, Ella, Amber, Kenzie, Charlotte, Emily
The Year 7 played their first Rugby matches in Court Fields colours at a Central Venue Competition at Bishop Fox’s School. This was also some of the boys first ever completive game of rugby, but you would not miss place them against the more experience players. With the hard work and willingness to develop their Rugby skill, the boys played 4 games and won them all.
Well done, Mr Seaton
On a beautiful day the girls travelled down to Bishop Foxes to compete in a friendly hockey tournament in preparation for the central venue league after half term. The girls used the space out wide to their advantage and had a lot of attacking plays against Minehead Middle which ended up 2-0 win for Court Fields. The 2nd game was a tough one but Court Fields still managed to score against a strong Castle side ending the game 3-1 to Castle. In the final game Zoe Muller had a stormer of a game and scored 2 of the 3 goals ending in Court Fields winning vs Bishop Foxes 3-0. Well done to all involved!
On Wednesday 10th Oct 2 teams travelled to Kingsmead to play in some beautiful conditions. The sun was shining and the girls were in good spirits. The A team started the first half well and scored an early goal on the grass pitch with great attacking play from Bethan Chetland and Charlotte and Emily Ayers. Kingsmead responded well with many attacking short corners but Court Fields defence was strong and held out for the 1-0 win! Player of the match went to Halle Watlin-Arnold in defence.
In the B team game the girls worked the ball well up the wings and started to utilise the space. Lotti Vickery was phenomenal in defence and Jasmine Jones in Midfield ran her socks off ! The girls didn’t have a GK which led to Kingsmead scoring an easy tap in but in the 2nd half Court Fields had much more attacking chances but again conceded another goal. A close game and the girls worked incredibly hard as a team throughout. Well done!
YEAR 8 RUGBY
Court Fields 35 – 10 Kingsmead
The unbeaten run continues as Court Fields overcame a resilient Kingsmead team.
Thomas S was ever-reliable in making some crunching tackles, with the front row of Berry-Drew, Hayes and Slade being superb in the scrum.
Thomas H was superb yet again at 11, scoring 4 tries. Jenkins also had a great game at 10 and scored his first try of the season. George S scored the try of the game by outpacing the defensive line of Kingsmead and running the length of the pitch to seal the win. The other try came from the impressive Souza.
Well done boys! Mr Conway
M.O.M- Thomas H
TAUNTON ACADEMY 0 – 55 COURT FIELDS
Two wins from two for the blue army as they marched to a fantastic win scoring 11 tries without reply.
Following last week’s impressive victory at Bishop Foxes, the Year 8s started very impressively scoring two tries from the prolific Thomas H. The Academy responded by playing some good rugby, only to be thwarted by the solid defensive line of Court Fields. After this spell it was only really a one way affair with Court Fields going on to play some scintillating rugby and scoring a further 9 tries. Well done boys! Mr Conway
