The Year 8 football team looked to build on their good start to the season when they travelled to Essa on Tuesday night. Both teams fielded two eight-a-side teams on another wintry evening. In one of the teams, Scott Knowles and man of the match Marcus Jackson, linked up well and scored some lovely goals to win both their games. However, the other team struggled in both games and despite taking the lead in both their games, they suffered two defeats.

Unfortunately, Turton couldn't fulfil the basketball fixture however the badminton team were in action. They suffered a heavy defeat to an older and more experienced Harper Green. It has been a difficult couple of games for the new squad but they are already showing signs of progress, the future looks bright!
