Clockhouse look grEIGHT as they ease into the next round of the Havering Borough Cup!
Last night Clockhouse made the trip to the other side of the borough to face Newtons Primary school in a boys football match. The boys turned up and looked switched on and it did not take long before Charlie M scored his first goal of the match. Clockhouse and Charlie M doubled their tally shortly after, fantastic build up play from Bobby I and James O allowed Charlie to beat the keeper.
Clockhouse were dominating possession, the speed of play and the selflessness in the play was a pleasure to watch! Max N added to the Clockhouse lead with a nice half volley after some good control and a great cross from Kaylan B.
Clockhouse went in at half time with the game all but over as a contest. The nice thing about the performance is Clockhouse were not finished and put on a mature ruthless second half performance! Micah R was next to put his name on the score sheet following a goal line scramble. Captain Alfie P did not want to miss out on the action and scored a rocket from far out, a real contender for goal of the season! Kaylan B playing out of position due to players not being able to play at short notice, put a real shift in and was rewarded with a goal following some quick thinking and distribution from keeper Charlie B. Despite time running out there was still time for Micah R to grab his second goal, his impressive goal scoring form now sits as 5 goals in 2 games. Riley V's long ball gave Charlie M a deserved final say in the game with an impressive strike from outside the area to grab his hat-trick.
Credit to Newtons who held their heads high throughout the game, but Clockhouse put in their best performance of the year so far. Fingers crossed we can play like that every game!

Clockhouse victorious in Collier Row derby!
Clockhouse boys football team welcomed local neighbours Pinewoods tonight for a boys football friendly.
Clockhouse put a marker on the game in the first half. With the main share of possession Clockhouse tried to control play but were missing the target when shooting opportunities arose.
In the opening exchanges Clockhouse pinned Pinewoods deep in their own half but just could not finish. As the game broke up just before half time Clockhouse had five minutes to remember, scoring all four goals in the five minutes leading up to half time. James O continued his impressive goal to game ratio, while debutant Micah R bagged himself a brace and Bobby L also found the net.
Pinewoods grew in confidence as the 2nd half went on and were unlucky not to grab a goal or two back on the counter attack with Charlie B pulling off numerous fine saves to keep his clean sheet. Clockhouse had opportunities to extend their lead through Max N and Alfie P but the Pinewoods goalkeeper was pulling out some fine saves to keep his side at a respectable scoreline.
Both Micah R and Riley V impressed highly on their school debuts making competition for places even higher. Thoughts also go to Charlie M who was selected for the game originally but was unable to play due to injury.
Final Score: Clockhouse 4 v 0 Pinewoods
Squad: Charlie B, Alfie P (c), Bobby I (vc), James O, Max N, Bobby L, Kaylan B, Riley V, & Micah R.
Scorers: James O, Micah R x 2, & Bobby L
Player of the Match: Micah R
Girls follow in boys footsteps with outstanding first victory!
In some of the weirdest weather conditions Clockhouse girls finally got the opportunity to play their first game tonight at Pinewoods.
The girls controlled the game territorially and with 5 minutes gone new captain Sophie L powered home with a strike from the edge of the area.
With roughly 8 minutes to play in the half the Year 5 girls Ruby N and Lily S-E were introduced to the game. The girls played confidently making good runs but the highlight was the passing game that seemed to bamboozle Pinewoods. Ruby N finishing off a nice team move to double the Clockhouse advantage before half time.
Pinewoods came out more physical in the 2nd half but the game remained in the greatest of spirits with all the girls from both sides enjoying their opportunities. Both sides grew in confidence as the game went on but it was Ruby N with her 2nd goal of the afternoon that sealed the victory. The cherry on the cake for Clockhouse came when Emily G hit a powerful shot that the goalkeeper struggled to deal with and Clockhouse went four goal to the good.
Pinewoods and Clockhouse both finished the game smiling after a fun game with the game really opening up in the last 5 minutes.
FINAL SCORE: PINEWOODS 0 - 4 CLOCKHOUSE
SQUAD: Kayleigh M, Rameen S, Grace D, Emily G, Beth C, Sophie L (c), Jodie S, Lily-Jo G, Ruby N, Lily S-E
SCORERS: Sophie L, Ruby N x 2 and Emily G

In form Boys Footballers keep winning run going!
Last week Clockhouse visited St Mary's for a boys football. The match was a good warm up for the league matches coming up as Clockhouse will face St Mary's in the league too.
The boys started where they left off against Crowlands and took an early lead with a James O goal. The pressure built up throughout the half with Clockhouse going in at half time 3 - 0 up. Max N scoring a tap in following a nice assist from Kaylan B and Charlie M scoring a perfectly curled free kick.
St Mary's came out for the second half stronger having made a few changes. The game became more of a struggle with Clockhouse guilty of trying to do too much with the ball and St Mary's becoming a lot more physical in the tackle. St Mary's got themselves back in the running with a goal before Clockhouse finished the game off with 2 more goals following some neat passing. Charlie M and James O both getting their brace.
The boys are next in action Tuesday at the league tournament on Tuesday where they will meet St Mary's again along with Parklands and Engayne.
FINAL SCORE: ST MARY'S 1 - 5 CLOCKHOUSE
SQUAD: Charlie B, Alfie P (c), Bobby I, James O, Max N, Bobby L, Kaylan B, Charlie M, Hayden M, Morgan N, & John O

Boys football team put Clockhouse on cloud 9!
Clockhouse boys kicked off the football season in flawless style last night. A dominant workmanlike performance ensured that Crowlands were not given a chance.
Clockhouse handed debuts to many new players tonight. One of which was James O who gave Clockhouse the lead within the first five minutes.
Clockhouse doubled there lead within ten minutes. Bobby L striking a free kick from considerable distance, leaving the keeper no chance.
Clockhouse were in no mood to hang around adding two more goals to their tally before the break. James O grabbing his second from some selfless fast paced build up play and Kaylan B poking one in past the keeper.
The second half was much of the same. Sadly for Crowlands the floodgates opened and Clockhouse went on to score a further five goals. James O completing his hat trick, Kaylan B adding a second, and other scores included Charlie M, Charlie G and Max N.
Credit to Crowlands who finished the game still smiling and a big well done to a Clockhouse team who had a brilliant day. It was great to see debutants like Max N really getting stuck in and creating chances across the pitch. While the rest of the midfield were fizzing passes everywhere. A great way to finish the week!
Tuesday evening sees the girls kick start their football season, with another boys game away next Thursday night.
After the game Mr Yarrow said 'with plenty of competition for places the boys new they had to perform tonight, and that they did. Competition for places was already high but these boys have laid down a marker and expectations will now be high! Just a reminder to all the boys looking to play that a 95% minimum on the dojo is essential and I would hate for us to have players missing out on availability. Brilliant start to the football campaign! Well done lads!!!'
Mr Koten said 'the work rate from start to finish was out of this world! Mr Yarrow and myself are looking forward to the selection headaches coming up. Well done to all the boys tonight.'

A Fun Day of Year 2 Football
Clockhouse attended the Year 2 football competition on Thursday 28th September 2017 at Play Football. The tournament was played in great spirits with development and enjoyment at the forefront of the day.
With the sun shinning Clockhouse made a fantastic start beating RJ Mitchells amd St Peters. Clockhouse also had the two finalists in their group, Harold Court & Benhurst. Each team played each other twice with results staying the same, resulting in Clockhouse finishing 3rd overall in their group.
Chelsea scouts in attendance were really impressed with Harry M who scored 11 goals on the day, our other goal scorer was Alex C.
Mr Yarrow said 'It was great to see so many Year 2 children out enjoying sport! The children who represented the school today were amazing and played the whole day with a smile on their faces, I couldn't ask for more than that. I am hoping for many more opportunities to take Year 2 children out to sporting events. Thank you to all the parents who helped with transportation. A fun day out for all involved!'
