Athletics Achievement

A huge well done to Beau (4F) who recently won the ‘Newcomer Athlete of the Year 2021’ trophy at the S-Factor Academy Athletics Club. He also had the privilege of meeting Tokyo Paralympic 100m Gold medallist Thomas Young, and even got the chance to try on his gold medal!

London Youth Games Cross Country

On Saturday, four children from Year 6 represented Lewisham in the London Youth Games Cross Country at Parliament Hill. The runners completed the 1500m route over two laps and it included a very big hill! There were 153 runners in the U11 boys’ race and 154 runners in the girls’ race. A huge well done to Moriah, Milo and Cillian, and also to Tom (who posted Fairlawn’s quickest time of 6mins 59sec) – we are very proud of you all!

Girl’s Lewisham Football League

On Saturday, the girls’ football team played their second round of matches at Blackheath. In their first game, they beat Torridon 1-0 with a wonderful late winner from Marlena (5M). In the second game, they suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Stillness despite pressing very hard for an equaliser. A special mention to Margot (6S), and to Nuala and Abigail S (both 4A) who all made their debuts.

Monday Night Haseltine Football League

Fairlawn 1-3 St Michael’s
It was a very close match. We took a 1-0 lead after a through ball from myself sent Alan clear and he smashed it into the bottom corner. St Michaels equalised after a vicious spin on the ball deceived our goalkeeper Ollie, and they were quickly 2-1 ahead after a fine finish from one of their strikers. Despite a strong second half, it was their number 7 who got the decisive goal with an excellent volley into the bottom corner. We felt that we were a little unlucky to lose but we look forward to our next match (report by Cillian 6JS).

Blackheath Football League

A huge well done to the girls’ football team who won both of their games on Saturday 6th November. In match 1, they beat Kender 1-0, and in match 2 (a friendly), they beat Good Shepherd 3-2. The squad of Josie, Minnie, Cara, Iris, Pearl, Zoe, Emily and Anna scored some lovely team goals.
