Middlewich Sports Partnership Netball league 2018
The netball league was supposed to be played over 2 nights but the snowy weather prevented us from playing on the first date. We managed to play all our matches on one evening instead. The netball experience was really varied from club players to those playing a match for their first time; it was great to see the players grow in confidence and ability as the games progressed. The year 9 & 10 netball squad officiated the games.
Our champions were Middlewich who retain the trophy, with Cledford as the runners-up. Wimboldsley were small schools’ champions, who also retain the trophy.
Congratulations to all pupils involved.
The Primary Sports Hall Athletics was yet again an exciting event with a superb atmosphere. The students took part in a variety of track and field events to the noisy cheers of all the spectators. A large team of 22 Sports Leaders helped ensure that the event ran smoothly.
Middlewich were our Champions and will represent the Middlewich Sports Partnership at the next round. St. Mary’s were our well-deserved runners-up, just a few points behind. Byley were our highest placed small school and received the small schools’ trophy. Well done to all involved and good luck to Middlewich in the next round.
The girls’ football competition finally took place after torrential rain stopped play on the initial day.
The 3 big schools had a tournament and our small schools and ‘B’ teams from St, Mary’s and Middlewich also had their own tournament. The Byley team needed to supplement their team with extra players and all schools at some point lent them players. This great sportsmanship from all players was fantastic to see with players being shared and goal keeper gloves being lent to other schools; it created a friendly and positive environment for all.
Winners of the ‘A’ tournament – Cledford, with Middlewich as runners-up
Winners of the ‘B’ tournament – The Byley squad, with Wimboldsley as runners-up. Wimboldsley also picked up the trophy for ‘Small School Champions’.
Well done to all involved.
The primary football league was run over 3 weeks on our 3G with each of our 6 primary schools playing each other once. The final round of games were the play-offs for 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th & 5th and 6th placings.
The final between Middlewich and St. Mary’s was very closely contested. On the lead up to the final, both schools had won all their games except when they played each other and drew. There was nothing to separate them and the final itself was equally close as it ended 2-2 after the final whistle. The team managers decided not to share the trophy but go for the very exciting finish of penalties. Middlewich won 5-4 on penalties. Well done to Middlewich who retained the Champions trophy for a 2nd year and congratulations to St. Mary’s for being runners-up.
Champions of the small schools was Wimboldsley, who also gave great games to the big schools too and managed to score an impressive amount of goals. Warmingham were the runners-up. Well done to all involved and special thanks to the Sports Prefects and leaders who officiated and volunteered on these nights; they were great ambassadors for the PE department.

Middlewich Sports Partnership Cross-country Competition
On Tuesday 19th September we had our first event of the year which was our annual cross-country competition at Cledford Primary School. Unusually for this event, the sun was shining and the conditions were perfect. There were a great number of competitors from our 6 Partnership Primary schools. It was really well supported by many parents and staff and a team of Year 11 Sports Prefects helped make sure the whole event ran smoothly and efficiently. Two Middlewich High School pupils Aaron Doyle (ex-Cledford) and Sam Jennings (ex-Middlewich and Year 6 MSP cross-country champion in 2015) were the hares for the course. The top 3 athletes in each race were recognised with a certificate and the winning school (made up of the 4 fastest runners) received a trophy.
