Sport at HJS
Hamstead has a long tradition of intra and inter school sports. Over the year children may play in House matches or competitions and some may be selected to represent the school in netball matches against other local schools or in football matches against other members of the West Bromwich Primary Schools' Football Association.
Our aim is that all children will be offered the chance to join a lunch or after school sporting club within the year, with Sports Plus coaches providing sessions Tuesday lunchtimes and evenings.
Inter School Sport 2019 to 2020
Monday September 30th 2019
Hamstead 8 St Paul's Primary School 0
Team: Sophia, Kurtis, Ben, Cyrus, Marvelous, Leo, Jonah, Abdulhameed and Jovan.
On a very, very wet night and with a very heavy, muddy pitch the team played their first match of the season. It was soon clear that the Hamstead team for this year may contain a lot of very fast, very skilful players who are all eager to get forward and attack. Against stronger teams the players will also need to remember to support their defence with the same enthusiasm. It was pleasing that so many of the team scored a goal and that Sophia was able to record a clean sheet. First half goals from Cyrus,Marvelous, Leo and Jovan gave the team a 4-0 lead at half time.
This was added to in the second half. With weather conditions growing increasingly worse Leo added two more to gain a hattrick, with further goals from Abdulhameed and Curtis.
Well done to all of the team, and to parents and grandparents for their encouragement and support.
