We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Platinum Mark Award!

This is an award which recognises schools for their commitment to promoting physical activity and sports participation among pupils and is based on criteria such as the range of sports offered, engagement levels and inclusion of all pupils. Platinum is the highest award and can only be awarded to schools who have held the Gold award for 4 consecutive years and have shown excellent provision both in school time and extra-curricular activities.

They started with a resounding 2-0 victory over Holy Trinity followed up with a 3-0 smashing of Huish! We then ended the group with a disappointing 1-1 against Castle Cary. Still finishing top of the group we played 2nd from group B in the semi final - the decider!

Preston Primary Football Tournament May 2022

Preston Primary Tournament May 2022

For the first time ever Preston hosted a football tournament which was contested by 8 teams; Preston A,B and C, Swanmead A & B, Milford, Kingfisher & Hambridge. There were some fantastic goals and some lovely team play.  All 3 Preston sides progressed to the semi finals as well as Milford, meaning there was a Preston derby in the semi of which Preston B were victorious over Preston A. Preston C unfortunately lost to Milford. In the final Milford put on a dominating display defeating our Preston B team convincingly but a well deserved victory in the end.

Congratulations Milford!

Fantastic effort from Marcy who took Beattie around the beat boxes!

Primary Stars Girls' Football Tournament - March 2022

This year, our girls at Preston Primary we’re chosen to represent Yeovil at the Primary Stars event in Southampton. This event was run by Saints South West and we were chosen by our friends at Yeovil Town Community Sports Trust to represent Yeovil. 

We came up against some very tough opposition in Woking, Southampton and Portsmouth, unfortunately losing all 3 games but playing some great football in the process. As we were knocked out early we were able to play Crawley and Reading in friendlies and won them both!  All was not lost as the girls managed to win the Fair Play award and won a drinks bottle each. The team had photos taken next to the Premier League trophy (which will have red ribbons next year 😉)


Massive well done to the girls and thank you to YTCST for choosing us!

Somerset FA Girls County Finals 

This time it was the girls chance to shine, the girls did have less games to play as a few teams decided to pull out, which is a shame.  It didn’t stop the girls from performing very well! They managed to get all the way to the final where we unfortunately lost 1-0 to Swanmead, who progressed through to the regional finals. Player of the tournament was Shekinah who was everywhere on the pitch whilst playing central midfield, winning every tackle she attempted!

Congratulations girls well deserved 2nd in Somerset!

2nd best girls team in Somerset!! ⚽️
