Update From Our PE Department

The return of the school football season has meant a busy start to fixtures for the staff running the school sides. However, this has been a generally successful, confidence boosting start for many of the sides.

Year 7

In their first ever fixture for St Edmund Campion the year 7 side had the toughest of draws against local power houses Arthur Terry, a tough ask which many of our students have experienced in the past.

As this is a side still finding their feet and getting used to working alongside one another there will always be a bedding in period. Campion made a solid start to the match, working hard and pressing from the front. Despite this the quality of two academy players for Arthur Terry was clear for those watching to see. As a result of this Campion found themselves trailing 2-0 at the break.

However, even the wise words of stalwart Mr Finnigan could not suppress the quality of opposition that Campion faced in this first fixture, as the students struggled to keep pace with their opponents before conceding at regular intervals. To leave the final score 8-0 to a very strong Arthur Terry side.

Man of Match for Campion goes to Shay Gahan

Year 8

The Year 8 team kicked off their footballing season with a league fixture against fellow Catholic School Cardinal Wiseman. In a one-sided affair Campion ran out clear victors with an 11-1 win.

The team as a whole played some fantastic passages in play, quickly adapting to moving up to 11 a side. The lads showed real progress from last year under the expert guidance of Miss Adams ably deputising for Mr Finnigan.

The goal scorers were Manton-Davies (3), Chowdhury (2), Sibotsha, Eubank, Walker, Razak, Mbog & an own goal. Man of the match Maton-Davies.

Year 9

Played away at Greenwood Academy away in the first round of the District Cup on Tuesday. This was a new experience for the side as they played at the home of a semi-professional side on a large 3G synthetic surface. However, the students adapted instantly and soon began to use the width of the pitch to their advantage, passing the ball around nicely. From the onset the game was all Campion and the result was never in doubt as they eased to an 11-1 victory.

All of the players acquitted themselves in an excellent manner to produce a professional result. The goal scorers were Jermain Kigozi (4), Freddie Akidi (3), Moses Munira (2), Sam Lawrence, and Charlie Joshua Griffiths. Man of the Match award was split between Freddie Akidi and Messi Ngangelyi

In the Birmingham Cup the Year 9 side were drawn at home against Lode Heath School from Solihull. Buoyed by their previous thumping victory hopes were high amongst the Campionites. To the credit of Mr Parker the students did not let him down. After a brief settling in period Campion began to exert their dominance playing some lovely passages of play. Building from the back via Ngangelyi and the once again impressive Akidi Campion built a comfortable 2-0 lead at half time.

In the second half it was much of the same. Lode Heath’s captain sought to mark out the lively Kigozi, which seemed to work as they pegged Campion back and shortened the advantage to 2-1. However, Kigozi was in irrepressible form, turning provider for Akidi and then once again Munira. Leaving the final score, a solid 4-1 victory.
