The football season got underway at the beginning of March for Chipping Sodbury School with fixtures against Brimsham Green.

It was a brilliant start by the Chipping Sodbury’s Year 7 boys. They dominated in all areas of the pitch and played some excellent football. The score finished 11-4 to Chipping Sodbury with hat-tricks for Adi Shindie and Flynn Rawlings. Isaac Stevens was voted man of the match for a midfield display.

In the Year 8 match, Chipping Sodbury were slow to start against Brimsham and found themselves 3-0 down. However they showed patience and composure to claw back to 3-3 before eventually scoring the winning goal for a hard earned 4-3  victory. Sam Fryer was selected as man of the match.

Chipping Sodubry’s Year 9 side struggled to get into any rhythm in their first match of the season. Against a strong Brimsham side they failed to retain possession of the ball and a few defensive errors cost them dearly. Man of the match Callum Ball scored a consolation goal as the game finished 7-1 to Brimsham.

The Year 10 teams have always had hard fought games against each other and this proved to be the case again as both teams cancelled each other out with the game finishing 1-1. Sodbury might feel aggrieved not to have won having dominated the second half and created the best goal scoring opportunities, but their keeper, Freddie Phelps-Stokes, had to pull off a wonder save to keep the score line at 1-1. Man of the match was Joe Jefferies.

This is the Year 11’s final season and Chipping Sodbury started with a bang against Brimsham. The team outplayed their rivals in all areas of the pitch with Jamie Hill orchestrated the midfield and Adam Perks commanding the back line. Sodbury comfortably won 4-1 despite Storm Doris’ best efforts. Adam Perks was chosen as Man of the match.
