U10A Hockey v King’s Hawford (A)
Date: Monday 24th September
Result: King’s Hawford 7 – Blue Coat 1
Most Valued Player: Emily Whitehouse for wanting to take 16s so quickly before the opposition were set.
Report: After a top result on Friday, the team came up against a strong opposition. We struggled to get pressure to the ball and allowed them to carry and attack through the centre of the pitch. Sofia Philips dribbled through the right channels but more structure to the team is needed to play forward and not lose possession. Lots to work on but a fun away day in the sun!
Scorer: Indira Singh

U11 Hockey BCS B v Hallfield A, U11 Hockey BCS C v Hallfield B
Date: Wednesday 26th September
Result: BCS B 0-4 Hallfield A, BCS C 1-2 Hallfield B
Most Valued Player: Lilly Cunney , Ava Nicholas
Report: Two tough fixtures both teams playing against a side up. The girls stepped up to the challenge and battled hard but struggled with their structure and holding the width. At times we tackled well but we are all to nice we need to get more aggressive, put pressure on the opposition and move to the ball.

RUGBY

U10A Rugby v King’s St Alban’s
Date: Friday 21st September
Result: Blue Coat 45-0 KSA
Most Valued Player: John Meering & Freddie Trevis
Report: A strong win to start the season. At times the boys played some fantastic rugby, running hard at the opposition and looking for the offload. There were some great support lines and the few times we passed the ball out wide we scored easy tries. In defence we tackled hard, put pressure on the opposition and forced the mistakes. Going forward we need to play more heads up rugby, draw the player and give the pass into space as we tend to step back into contact. A great start boys, well done!

U10B Rugby v KSA
Date: Friday 21st September
Result: Blue Coat 65 – 15 KSA
Most Valued Player: Lemuel Adjei
Report: The U10B team had a fantastic victory against King’s St Albans playing some beautiful rugby along the way. The energy and spirit shown by the whole team was excellent and the key focus of looking for off loads and passes out the tackle really bore fruit. Adam Bashir’s and Richard Mahlberg-Schilling’s pace was a constant threat as was the support play of Freddie Williams and Temi Adenopo. Yusuf Douis tackled with real conviction and was instrumental in stopping the opposition attacks. However the player of the day for me was Lemuel Adjei who put in a superb all round performance combining some great tackling with some excellent work in attack. Well done to all though on an excellent performance.

U11A Rugby v WGJS
Date: Wednesday 26th September
Result: BCS 20 – 20 WGJS
Most Valued Player: James Scurlock
Report: Blue Coat got off to a strong start passing the ball down the pitch and a great early and hard shot by Poppy allowed us to take the lead. Some excellent defence and tackles by Anya stopped WGS penetrating our D but we must learn to control the ball and then pass it out wide. The game was a bit crowded with both teams battling for the ball and playing down the centre of the pitch. To improve we need a bit more composure, to spread out a bit more, look up and pass to a team mate. A great first game though, the girls worked really hard, well done!
Scorer: William Brett (2) Oliver Smith and AY

U11 C&D Rugby Triangular v WGJS 
Date: Wednesday 26th September
Result: No result taken
Most Valued Player: William Cowley & Pardeep Sohal are developing into fine rugby players
Report: Every pupil played in Year 6 v WGJS. It was a perfect setting and mixing the ability created end to end matches. Arjun Bajwa continued his fine form, carrying aggressively into the heart of the opposition. Harkeerat Kang showed that he can evade defenders with evasive running, but a real focus is on our support, and staying structured to not smother one side of the pitch.
