The Y11 football team swept aside a well disciplined and hard working Hornsea side to secure their place in the next round of the English Schools National Cup tonight.
The first-half was tight and cagey with both teams struggling to maintain possession and the game affected by the bright sun. Nerves were eased with a deflected opener from Ali Alsheriafe. Those on the touch line claimed an own goal but the night's captain wasn't going to be denied. A second goal before Half-Time made for an easier team talk. Harry Blackham stooping to head in Tom Wilkinson's excellent corner.
The encouragement of a 2-0 lead, the rustiness of the first-half out of the way and buoyed by the introduction of Elliot Pashley, Kieran Broadhead and Jamie Hope, the team played some excellent football in the second-half and were able to turn their dominance into seven unanswered goals. The dangerous Harry Blackham adding another four, two for the industrious Leon Stewart and a well-deserved goal for Tom Wilkinson.
The team now turn their attention to the Hull Schools League as they await the draw for the next round.
Well done to all of the boys involved!
Squad: Connor Foster, Luke Taylor, Emils Kokorevics, Oliver Walker, Lewis Bibby, Charlie Jones, Leon Stewart, Ali Alsheriafe, Tom Wilkinson, Ahmed Bela, Harry Blackham, Jamie Hope, Elliot Pashley and Kieran Broadhead
Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.
Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.
The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!
For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
