On Wednesday 11th January the junior football team at St Joseph’s School travelled to St Petroc’s School for a mini Tournament between St Petoc’s, Shebbear and ourselves in what was our first competitive afternoon of football this year. The team performed well winning the first two games against St Petroc’s 4 – 0 and only narrowly being defeated 1-0 in the final game against Shebbear.
The following week St Joseph’s hosted Launceston Community Primary for a junior league game. The pitch was still a little boggy from the excessive rain in December and this slowed the game down somewhat but St Joseph’s settled down and won 8 – 0, an excellent result.
Last week the School travelled to Mount House for the first competitive senior boys football match that St Joseph’s has ever played. Mount House had two teams and therefore the boys played twice on what was again quite a heavy pitch. The team performed magnificently and won the first game 5 – 0. The second game was much more difficult and the team very much deserved their 0 – 0 draw.
A great start to 2012 for both the junior and senior football teams at St Joseph’s. The next junior football team match is on Wednesday 25th January away to Polwhele House.
