Hendal Sports Leagues


12/9/19 Hendal 4 – 1 St James

St James brought a great team and for a large part of the game Hendal struggled to gain an advantage because of the great saves by St James’ goalkeeper. It wasn’t until late in the second half we managed to score the vital goals and win the game 4-1. Asa was awarded player of the match because he helped influence the late flurry of goals by having great vision and teamwork in the midfield position.

26/9/19 Hendal 1 – 1 Sandal castle

A hard earned point against a talented Sandal team. Hendal was losing 1-0 at half time, but after an inspired team talk and a great team effort we brought it back to draw 1-1. Ruben came on at half time as a substitute and earned the player of the match award after creating numerous chances with fantastic footwork.



19/9/19 Hendal 3 – 3 Dane Royd

This was the first match of the season and for many of the Hendal team, their first time representing the school.  It was a challenging match and what we took from this was some areas that we could improve on.  Everyone played really well and it was a great team effort.  We were winning right up until the last quarter, however Dane Royd produced two really well deserved goals.  We were all really pleased with the final score.

03/10/19 Sandal Magna 4 – 12 Hendal

This was our first away match.  The team proved that they had been listening in training and used the skills that they had been practising.  This led to Hendal having possession of the ball for the majority of the time.  It was a fantastic game to watch and Sandal Magna maintained their enthusiasm right up until the end.  The team were all really please with the final result.

17/10/19 Hendal 13 – 1 Sandal Castle

A really good match with Hendal really pulling together as a team.  There were some challenging moments and Sandal Castle played really well.  Both teams are all fairly new to the game, however some fantastic passing, footwork and shooting were displayed from both Hendal and Sandal Castle.  Fantastic positive attitudes were shown by everyone.  Another victory for Hendal, who are becoming a really strong team.  Well done

Indoor Athletics

Hendal Primary took a group of children to a local Indoor Athletics competition held at Kettlethorpe High School. Hendal are the reigning champions of this competition after gaining the shield last year. We had such a great start to the competition with our year 5 and 6 girls, we knew they were going for gold when they hadn’t lost a single running race. Along side the girls the boys were getting exceptional results when competing in their field events, every boy entered for an event finished in first place. The boys continued our winning streak and won all of their running races with the girls continuing to the perform exceptionally during their field events too. We are proud to say we will now go through to the next round of the competition. We have selected a player of the tournament and this goes to Lee in Year 5.
