Somerset FA county finals (boys)
After another complicated year we’ve made it to another county final competition! Which is a fantastic achievement by all involved. We arrived at Strode college not knowing anything about the opposition we were about to face. The boys played 5 games starting off slow losing 3-0 in the first game but bringing it back to win 3/5 games. Unluckily the boys finished 3rd in the group therefore not qualifying for the regional finals. Some great football on display and Henry S was the star man as he notched 2 goals and played very well in a slightly new position.
Congratulations boys you have done yourselves proud.
Preston Primary vs Countess Gytha
We played a Y4 team and a Y5 team.
A lot of players playing for the first time ever in a Preston Primary shirt, doing the school proud!
Our Y5’s had a tough game but came out 5-2 winners with man of the match Jacob P scoring twice.
The Y4’s also won but way more convincingly, 9-2 being the end result. We couldn’t pick a man of the match as the whole team performed very well.
Well done to all those involved. Hopefully more games to be played in the new year!
Year 5 vs Year 6 game November 2021
Friday 19th November, Preston Primary hosted our Y5 vs Y6 annual game. After a few years of no games we were happy to be back! The game began with Year 6 dominating possession, however it wasn’t long before Year 5 were penned into their own half for a solid 10 minutes. It didn’t take Year 6 long until they went 1-0 up. A couple of substitutes later and Year 5 grew in confidence, after going 3-0 down just before half time Year 5 managed to claw one back to make the score 3-1 at half time. As the second half commenced Year 5 started to dominate and went on to make the score 3-2 and gave themselves a chance to equalise. Unfortunately Year 6’s experience saw them regain their 2 goal lead and took the game by storm by eventually winning 5-2. Some inspiring performances on show but both Ollie H (Y5) and Irah (Y6) both playing in the centre back role, played impeccably and won a much deserved man of the match!
Congratulations to all the boys involved and to Year 6 on their much deserved win!
Congratulations to our girls team who have qualified for the County Finals, to be played at the end of January. The team played some fantastic football, coming away with a much deserved a place in the County Finals. A special mention to Shekinah who was reported by many to have had an unbelievable tournament and was highly praised indeed!

Girls ESFA tournament
Today our wonderful girl footballers took part in a girls tournament (unfortunately only 2 teams turned up so wasn’t much of a tournament) but they had fun nonetheless. We ran out 4-0 winners after a tough 16 minute game. The girls were also taken for fun sessions in between the two halves. Big thank you to the students at Westfield for helping run the event.
House Football 2021
In this year's House Football tournament, we were very happy to see some spectacular football on display - not to mention the teamwork shown by all participants. A big thank you to Mr Branch, Mr Kerrigan and Mr Bourne who helped Mr Watkinson set up the event and help officiate.
Our winning team this year was Livingstone - Germany, captained by Olly Y6.

Sports Day 2021
Our much anticipated Preston Primary Sports day was not the same without our lovely parents this year but we still managed to make it a success. KS1 had lots of fun doing all sorts of races. For the first time Y3, 4 and 5 had their Sports Day in the morning and afternoon doing many different events including; discus, shot put and long jump. (photos below) All the scores were added up throughout the day and eventually crowning Cook our 2021 Sports Day Champions! 🏆🔵
Well done to all participants.
After missing out on lots of sporting events over the last year or so we were very grateful to finally have Wimbledon back for 2021. A big thank you to Mr Bourne for making this happen. Congratulations to our finalists (listed below) and more so the winners from Y3 Millie and Owen, Y4 Pippa and Oscar, Y5 Maisie and Jamie and finally Y6 Jess and Louix!
Well done all! 🎾🏆
