Summer Sizzler news round-up

Horncastle Summer Sizzler Tournament

On Saturday 24th June, we hosted our annual football and netball tournament. It was a great event, attended by many different schools from around the area. All of the children showed a great sporting spirit throughout!

We would like to thank the teachers, children and parents who attended the event from Alford, Tattershall, Holy Trinity, Partney, Seathorne, Manor Leas, Coningsby St Michael’s, St Andrew’s and of course Horncastle.

We would also like to say a big thank you to JB Sports for referring the football and Horncastle Belles for umpiring the netball. Your support is greatly appreciated!


Y5/6 Horncastle Football Success in the Summer Sizzler!

We entered 2 Year 5/6 football teams into the Horncastle Summer Sizzler tournament at Horncastle school. Having been victorious the year before, and with more teams entered this year, the challenge was set.

Both teams played excellently. In the group stages, our A and B teams were undefeated and topped their respective groups.

Into the semi-finals, Horncastle A played a close fought match against St Andrews which ended with a win. The B team played Manor Leas and lost admirably.

The final was a nail-biting occasion and Horncastle A played Manor Leas. With ten seconds left on the clock, Horncastle scored via Toby and the game finished 1-0 .

Throughout the tournament, both teams played in the correct spirit, working as a team and playing some really good football. Well done to both teams!

Can I say a big thank you to all the parents and family who came to support, with a special thank you to Mr Janney, who coached our A team with the support of Mr Pemberton.

Horncastle A: Joseph, Turner, Daniel, Reece, Toby, Noah

Horncastle B: Ellis, Alex, Jay, Adam, Liam, Angus, Theo

The tournament ended what must be considered a hugely successful season! As a team, we entered 3 tournaments and were victorious in each. We look forward to starting again next year and welcoming new members from the present Year 4 children who will be in Year 5 come September. And we say a big thank you and good luck to our Year 6 team members who will start their journey at secondary school! Please can I say a big thank you to all the children for being enthusiastic, committed and hardworking! Finally, I would like to say another big thank you to Mr Bramley who coached our team to victory in the JB Sports St Hughes Tournament earlier in the year J


Y5/6 Horncastle Netball Teams impress at Summer Sizzler!

We entered three Year 5/6 teams into the tournament.

All three teams demonstrated exceptional teamwork throughout each match that they played. In the group stages, the A team won their league whilst the B team finished second and C team finished fourth in their league.

Team A and B progressed into the semi-final and had to play against each other! Both teams played with great competitive spirit. The match finished at 1-1. Into sudden death and after a few minutes of tension, Connie scored the winning goal for Team A!

Horncastle A went on to play St Andrews’ A in the final. Both teams played extremely well with St Andrews’ having the edge, winning 3-1, and becoming winners of the tournament! Horncastle B went on to play Alford A in the 3rd v 4th play off match. Both teams played in great spirit! The game finished as 2-2 so it was decided both teams would be declared equal third place teams.

Throughout the tournament, all of the girls played to the best of their ability and worked efficiently as part of a team. They were always supportive and encouraging of each other. A big well done to all of the girls who took part!
