Haddenham Community Junior School has announced a run of good form in various sporting activities. Here's the latest report from the school's newsletter.

Many congratulations to the Boys football team who, following a 2 — 0 win over William Harding last week, were crowned Aylesbury Vale league champions. Their record this season is very impressive indeed:

Played 8, Won 7, Drawn 1 and lost 0.

Along the way they have scored 39 goals and conceded a mere three. Very well done, boys!

The school also offered a sincere 'thank you' to Mr Smart, coach and referee extraordinaire, for doing such a good job, training and preparing the team for the matches this season.

There were other sporting successes this week too.

The Year 6 Hockey team, under the leadership of Mrs Charlton, achieved a good win over our visitors Ickford School; well done to all who played — they really did show enormous skill and commitment in achieving their win.

And if that wasn't enough, Mr Millburn took two Yr4 hockey teams to compete in a tournament at Aylesbury Grammar School on Thursday, and they achieved 1st and 2nd place. A fantastic achievement!
