Looking forward to next season now!

Well done to the girls for competing in the football competition. They played against some really big schools and were very nervous to start.

The last game finished 0-0. The team were excellent, really well behaved and most importantly, they enjoyed the whole experience. Well done!

ESFA County Finals 29/1/16

Because the school finished second in the Autumn Tournament, we were invited to compete in the ESFA County Finals. The squad was reduced down to 8 due to the rules of the EFSA but the team were feeling confident.

In the first game we played Harston and Newton. The team were quite nervous and it showed in the performance finally losing 2-0. The next two matches the team were back to their excellent best. We beat Little Thetford 2-1 . Then in the 3rd game we drew 2-2 against St Albans despite dominating the whole match.

After 3 games, all 4 teams had won one, lost one and drew one. Unfortunately we missed out on a place in the semi-finals on goal difference.

A fantastic performance again by the team and we are very proud of them.



Small Schools Football Tournament November 4th 2015

Great Paxton won their first game 2-0 with 2 goals from Chris. In their second game they lost 1-0 to Newton. The 3rd game was a 0-0 draw against Upwood. That meant that Great Paxton needed to win their last game by 4 clear goals to claim second place in the tournament. At half time Great Paxton were 1-0.

Small Schools 2014 Autumn Football Tournament 

We have finally achieved it! We are now the Small Schools Football Champions for Autumn 2014!

Well done to all the players who worked so hard to win both games.

We beat Bushmead 3-0. Then after many, many efforts on goal, we beat St Marys 1-0 thanks to a long range shot. The defense were rocks and kept a clean sheet in both games.

We thoroughly deserved the victory and we are so proud of the whole team:


Small Schools Football Tournament

Bad luck and injuries prevented us from achieving our season goal of winning the Spring Small Schools Football Tournament. Our first game was against Bushmead and it was a tight match finishing 0-0. We played and beat Offord 2-0. Our 3rd match was  a 2-0 victory over Barnabas Oley. We were still in with a very real chance of winning the tournament despite only having 8 fit players in a 9-a-side game. Then our lucked changed. Despite our constant pressure, shots against the crossbar, we lost the vital match to Houghton 1-0. Our last game was all about pride and passion. The commitment and dedication of the team was outstanding and we battled through to a 1-0 victory. We finished a credible 3rd place out of the 6 teams - 3 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat.

Up For the Cup Girls Football Tournament


Well done to the Girl's Football Team. They took part in their first ever football competition and came SECOND! They played 3 teams in total. They lost 4-2 to Crosshall, won 4-2 against Holywell and then beat Alconbury 8-0. Every outfield member of the team scored during the tournament and it really was a team perfomance to be proud of!!!



High 5s Tournament

For the first time in a very long time, Great Paxton competed in the County High 5s Tournament. The children had been working hard at training and were now pitching their skills in competitive matches.

The first match against Priory was a 3-0 win.

Confidence was extremely high but in the second game, Holme were just much quicker and more physical and deserved their 4-0 victory. It was very similar next match against Holywell (who were the champions in the end) with Great Paxton losing 3-1.

Great Paxton then played out two draws to conclude the fixtures.

Overall the team were magnificent in their first ever matches. They really enjoyed the whole occasion and yet again we are so proud of another of our sports teams!


Dickensen Cup Round 2

Great Paxton travelled to Warboys in the second round of the Dickensen Cup on Monday 25th November. Despite playing against a much larger school, it was Great Paxton that bossed possession.  Warboys scored in the first half against the run of play. The team worked solidly and relentlessly applied pressure on the Warboys goal and we were always a threat but their keeper made 3 crucial saves in the dying minutes and Warboys held on to their lead. Great Paxton were brilliant and very unlucky and I am so proud of them for that performance.


Dickensen Cup

Great Paxton hosted Barnabus Oley in the first round of the cup this year. Having lost to them at the same stage last year there was only one thing on our minds!

After comfortably going into a 3-0 lead we made hard work of the game conceding 2 second half goals. 

A well-deserved victory and we are on the road to Wembley!


Autumn Term Small Schools Football Tournament
As hosts of the tournament, we played exceptionally well and were very unlucky not to be triumphant. The team played with confidence in their first matches of the season and did themselves and the school proud!
