Friday 19th October Staff Training Day - school closed to children

Netball

 

The 2018-2019 fixtures start in style!

 

Clockhouse played our first sports fixture of the year as they visited Scotts Primary for a netball fixture.

 
Clockhouse have had good games with Scotts in previous years and this was to be another great contest.
 
The opening exchanges were very nervy with both teams trying to find their feet. Scotts settled the quicker of the two sides and got a 3 goal lead.
 
As we entered the third period Clockhouse were still not on the scoreboard but then something just clicked and Clockhouse were back level within two minutes. Mia C scoring twice and captain Lily S-E also finding the net. Clockhouse now had a buzz about their game and a Ben C double ensured that Clockhouse had a lead going into the later stages of the contest. Solid defensive performances from Brooke A, Kayleigh S, Hayden M and John O limited Scotts to just the one score.
 
The game finished in fine style Scotts finding the net another 3 times but Clockhouse showing their raw potential. Lily S-E scoring another 4 while Mia C scored her hat trick and Hayden M chipped in at the end for the icing on the cake.
 
Mr Yarrow said 'looking back at that game it showed great Clockhouse spirit to keep our heads high and come back from being three down. It was great to see the potential once we started to get into our flow. Without dount their is stuff to work on at netball club but this was a positive start. There were a lot of debuts Poppy A grew into the game the more she played. I also thought the twins linked up really well.
 
Well done team!
 
Thank you for all the supporters who came to watch and thanks to a strong Scotts side for their hospitality.
 
I look forward to seeing the team back on court as soon as we can arrange more fixtures.'

Clockhouse new look netball team kick off the sporting year!

 

Last week Clockhouse took a very new look side to the Haverigh High 5 Netball Competition.

 

Despite loosing some amazing players last year new faces stepped in and looked very natural.

 

Clockhouse played La Salette in first game winning 1 - 0, Max N with the score.

 

Next up was Nelmes. Clockhouse looked settled and won with a convincing 3 - 0 scoreline. Captain Lily S-E with the hattrick of scores.

 

Clockhouse were then up against Scotts. Two scores from Hayden M gave Clocks another flawless victory.

 

The penultimate group game was against St Patrick's. This game ended scoresless, sadly time ran out with Clockhouse dominating the contest.

 

Last up for Clockhouse was Parklands. The dominating performances continued as Max N scored twice to ensure Clockhouse topped the group in emphatic style without conceding a single score.

 

In the knock out stages Clockhouse met Ardleigh Green. Clockhouse showed some real class to brush Ardleigh Green aside winning 3 - 0. Ruby N with 2 scores and Hayden M with 1.

 

In a copy of last years final Clocks met Parsonage Farm. It was a tough rotation for Clockhouse with some strong performers missing from the starting line up. Despite that Clockhouse put in a real performance sadly loosing 2 - 1. Lily S-E scoring the Clockhouse consolation.

 

After the tournament Mr Yarrow said 'This was a great start for this new side. Their teamwork and dedication fills me with confidence moving forward. I can not wait for the 7-a-side campaign to begin! Congratulations to Parsonage Farm on the win, I look forward to trying to get one back over them later this year. Great start team Clockhouse well done!'

 

SQUAD: Lily S-E (c), Hayden M, Mia C, Holly W, Frankie R, Ruby N, & Max N

Clockhouse Stumble at Final Hurdle

 

Last Wednesday Clockhouse went to the Netball Havering Cup Final as defending champions. Marshalls Park was the venue for a great afternoon of netball where Clockhouse met Oakfields Montessori.

 

Despite coming in as favourites on paper Oakfields came out the blocks firing and before Clockhouse were in the game they were already chasing a 5-0 deficit. Clockhouse who were not at their normal pace and fluency really struggled with the movement and tactical organisation of the Oakfield netballers.

 

After half time Clockhouse looked to be back on their game Ruby N making a big impact from the bench. As Clockhouse clicked they started to chase the game showing just why they were in the final for the third year in succession. As the game entered the final quarter Oakfields had a 13-6 lead but Clocks saved some of their best netball of the year for the final 8 minutes in the sporting calendar. The urgency to move the ball from one end of the court to the other in such a precise way was incredible to watch. Every Oakfields attack way nullified and Clockhouse then hit back on the scoreboard.

 

As the final whistle blew it was heartbreak for Clockhouse who lost narrowly.

 

Reflecting on the game Mr Yarrow said 'I am gutted for the squad tonight they came into the competition this years as champions and throughout every stage of competition they have conducted themselves as champions! Tonight wasn't our night we didn't switch on at the start and left too much to chase.

 

That being said I am so proud of this team, netball has gone from strength to strength in previous years and these children have been ever present in the Clockhouse netball success. We now know we have a big job next year to win that trophy back!'

 

Final Score Clockhouse 11 - 14 Oakfields

 

Squad: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Rachel C, Sophie L, Lily S-E and Ruby N

 

Scorers: Lily S-E x 6 and Sophie L x 5

Borough Champions make it back to back finals as Clockhouse look to defend their title! 

 

Last week Clockhouse visited Engayne for the eagerly awaited borough cup netball semi-final. In blistering hot conditions it took Clockhouse a while to get going and were chasing an early Engayne lead.

 

Once Clockhouse found their rhythm a game fitting of the occasion ensued. An evenly match encounter forced the champions to dig deep and pull out all the stops. Charlie B literally putting his body on the line to stop the Engayne attacks. 

 

Clockhouse put the pedal to the floor just before half time to take a 9-5 lead into half time. Bobby I and Rachel C feeding the shooters at every opportunity.

 

As the team came out for the second half they knew the job was not done. Some strict officiating limited the Clockhouse chances. But as always Lily S-E and Sophie L were clinical when the opportunities were forthcoming.

 

In typical Clockhouse style the game became tight and more decisions went against Clockhouse in the attacking third. Engayne managed to tie the game 11 all as time ran out.

 

Clockhouse were no strangers to extra time, the borough reigning champions were not prepared to relinquish their grip on the cup easily. Two goals early on in extra time, one for each shooter put Clockhouse in a strong position. It came down to the passion and desire in defence, captain Beth C, Charlie B and Kayleigh M were determined to shut Engayne out. Time was on Clockhouse's side and although Engayne pulled one back it was too Little too Late and Clockhouse were in the final again.

 

After the game Mr Yarrow said ' firstly thanks to Miss Ettridge for her help on the day! This is a huge achievement for this hard working group of Clockhouse children. This is our third final on the bounce and this squad have the opportunity to make school history by being the first group to regain a Borough Title.

 

The attack was on point as always but the defence really made a statement in this game. If it wasn't for their hard work especially when the team was being officiated very strictly in the 2nd half, then the result could of been very different! 

 

We have now won both the quarter and semi finals in extra time. This might not be ideal but it goes to show the fight and never say die attitude this team brings onto the court every game!!!

 

The final will be the last sporting event of the year and it would be great to finish on a high with this team getting the accolade they deserve!!!

 

If you are free please come to Marshalls Park School next Wednesday the 18th July, 3:30 start to see if this team can bring the cup back to Clockhouse! All support would be greatly received!!! The team are a pleasure to watch and will no doubt put on an amazing performance! Good luck Clocks you know you can do it!'

 

FINAL SCORE: ENGAYNE 12 - 13 CLOCKHOUSE

 

SQUAD: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Rachel C, Sophie L, Lily S-E, & Ruby N.

 

SCORERS: Sophie L x 5, Lily S-E x 8

Clockhouse take to the club environment to get more game time

 

Yesterday evening Clockhouse took a big squad to New Campbell Netball Club. The children were invited to take part in a vigorous warm up and some fast paced drills before playing a match.

 
The game grew into life with the Clockhouse team playing against people mixed from Year 5 up to Year 7.
 
New Campbell took an early lead after the first third but Clockhouse soon hit back to level the game. Clockhouse played with pace and were made to work hard for every opportunity, especially when facing New Campbell's Year 7 girls.
 
The devastating shooting quality of New Campbell ended up being the difference in the later stages of the game but Clockhouse held their own as they build up momentum ahead of the Havering Borough Cup quarter final. There were stages when Clockhouse exploded into action and other times when New Campbell's age and tactical experience was clear to see.
 
All in all a positive learning curve for the team. An impressive debut from Holly W and team Clockhouse continue to build momentum.
 
The netball team are back in action tomorrow when they travel to Dagenham to play Thomas Arnold.
 
Final Score: Clockhouse 3 vs 8 New Campbell Netball Club
 
Scorers: Katie G, Lily S-E and Sophie L
 
Squad: Grace D, Darcie L, Ruby N, Rachel C, Max N, Lily S-E, Holly W, Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I and Sophie L

Borough Champions ease through to quarter finals!

 

Defending champions Clockhouse were back to business yesterday as they took two teams to Scotts Primary School. One game was a cup game, the other a friendly.

 

The cup game was up first and the champions meant business. In a flying opening three minutes Clockhouse were 7-0 ahead. Ruthless play in the attacking third meant that Clockhouse had the chance to experiment with positions. This will be good practice for next week's Hi 5 Competition. Sadly for Scotts the scoring did not stop there, as the free flowing Clockhouse game play was allowing Clockhouse shooting opportunities throughout the last three quarters.

 

Credit to Scotts who played with a smile on their faces throughout. Despite the score the game was played in great spirits! Clockhouse really were flawless in their performance. The attack throughout was brutal but credit must also go to the defence who limited the Scotts possession and turned the ball over frequently. Clockhouse advance to the quarter finals.

 

Mr Yarrow said 'It is really hard to write a report when a team dominate from start to finish playing some lovely netball. I mean where do you start? What do you include? This was a fantastic team performance from the reigning champions. If they can continue playing like this there will be no reason they can not beat everyone! Proud of the performance. Special mention to Scotts, I always enjoy travelling to them they are very welcoming and it is always a fun enjoyable game.'

 

FINAL SCORE: Scotts 1 - 19 Clockhouse

 

SQUAD: Beth C  (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Rachel C, Sophie L, & Lily S-E

 

SCORERS: Lily S-E x 11, Sophie L x 4, Kayleigh M, Beth C x 2, & Bobby I

 

PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Beth C 

 

In our 2nd game of the evening Clockhouse fielded a completely different side and again played against Scotts.

 

Clockhouse took a little while finding their feet but as the game went on the squad grew in confidence. In defence Grace D, Layla S and Darci L did well to sniff out any attacks from a frantic Scottts front two. 

 

At the other end of the court Ruby N was linking up nicely with the shooters. Katie G giving Clockhouse the lead.

 

 

As the game entered the 2nd quarter Clockhouse continued to grow in confidence and began to open up the Scotts defence with some expansive play. Ben C scoring before Katie G got her 2nd to give Clockhouse a 3 - 0 lead at the half.

 

In the final two quarters Clockhouse pressed home their advantage, defensively limiting Scotts attacking play whilst moving into space to create shooting chances. Katie G added another three baskets to her impressive tally while Ruby N also got on the scoreboard.

 

Mr Yarrow said '2 games, 2 wins, a great afternoon of netball for Clockhouse. Lots of students playing well and enjoying themselves. What more could you ask for? I was really impressed with the people playing their first game for the school tonight.'

 

FINAL SCORE: Scotts 0 - 7 Clockhouse 

 

SQUAD: Darci L  (c), Grace D, Layla S, Ruby N, Ben C, & Katie G

 

SCORERS: Rachel C x 5, Ben C, & Ruby N

National Tournament Heartbreak for Clockhouse Netballers

 

Clockhouse Netball Team were once again invited to the Surrey Storm London Live netball tournament. The tournament is invitational so the calibre of schools / players on show was very high.

 
Clockhouse opened up their group stage with a 8-2 victory against Chepstow House. Clockhouse then met Colfe's and an enthralling game finished in a narrow defeat 6-4. In the final game of the group stage Clockhouse played a strong Queen' s Prep school. Clockhouse put in a great performance scoring frequently but loosing 12-6.
 
Despite loosing two group games the squad were playing some fantastic netball against the country's finest. Clockhouse qualified for the plate competition where they would meet Colfe's school again. A sloppy game finished with Clockhouse earning a 3-1 victory, booking their place in the plate final.
 
Clockhouse met Channing School in the plate final. In what has sadly become Clockhouse fashion, the final was a nailbiter. The game was end to end with Clockhouse consistently having a one goal advantage and then the Channing goal shooter answering back. As the game went into extra time the Channing goal shooter capitalised from a Clockhouse infringement to score the winning basket. Clockhouse loosing the final narrowly in extra time 7-6.
 
Mr Yarrow said 'The standard on show today was incredible. To be personally invited to a national tournament due to the standard of our netball is fantastic.
 
Today was really useful, the squad had to look at plan B & play at a level that they wouldn't normally have to. To earn three victories at this standard is a credit to the school.
 
Despite a typical agonizing Clockhouse final the result didn't go our way this time but hopefully we can learn from this and take this into our upcoming Netball league/cup fixtures. I am so proud of everyone that represented the school. This is a great level of netball to be involved in!'
 
Squad: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Ruby N, Rachel C, Sophie L, Lily S-E, & Grace D
 
Scorers: Lily S-E x 18, Sophie L x 8, & Grace D.
 
Player of the Tournament: Charlie B

 

 

Clockhouse remain undefeated ahead of busy month of netball

 

Clockhouse travelled out of the borough yesterday to play St Peter's (South Weald). Clockhouse and St Peter's are two very good netball schools and the chance to play against children from outside the borough is so worthwhile.
 
The first quarter was a close affair finishing 3-2 to Clockhouse. As the game went into the second quarter Clockhouse looked sharp in defence limiting St Peter's attacking opportunities. With ball in hand Clockhouse picked up the speed and exploded into life. Debutant Grace D finding an eye for the net. At half time Clockhouse had scored an additional 4 baskets and kept St Peter's out.
 
In the secind half of the game Clockhouse had clicked and looked ruthless in both attack and defence with the only criticism being that the team was occasionally playing too fast and incurring foot work penalities. That being said Clockhouse went on to score 8 further baskets while St Peter's were limited to just the 1 score.
 
Final Score: St Peter's 3 - 15 Clockhouse
 
Scorers: Sophie L x 2, Lily S-E x 6, & Grace D x 7.
 
Squad: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Rachel C, Sophie L, Lily S-E, Ruby N ans Grace D
 
Player of the Match: Grace D

 

 

Borough Champions ease through group stages on route to title defence

 

Tonight in atrocious weather conditions Clockhouse visited Crownfield with the winner advancing through the pool stages of the Havering League Competition.

 

Despite the cold weather Clockhouse were on fire and Crownfield really struggled to get possession of the ball.

 

Lily S-E had an eye for the goal. Scoring 3 goals in quick succession to give Clockhouse a lead that would set the tone for the rest of the game. Sophie L linked up well with Bobby I as she also found the net.

 

Despite not having much to do in defence captain Beth C marshalled her troops well and the organisation of the side was pivotal in the flawless attacking play.

 

Credit must also go to debutant Grace D & to Ruby N who is still learning the game. Both looked like they had played for years.

 

Final Score: Crownfield 0 - 15 Clockhouse

Squad: Beth C, Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Ruby N, Sophie L, Lily S-E, Grace D, Rachel C, & Hayden M

Scorers: Lily S-E x 8, Sophie L x 5, Hayden M, Charlie B

Player of the Match: Lily S-E

 

Mighty Clockhouse stumble at final hurdle

 

Clockhouse took their 7-a-side netball form into the Havering 5-a-side competition this afternoon.

 
In fantastic form as of late, Clockhouse looked flawless in the group stages recording the following results:
St Peter's won 5-0
Oakfields walkover win
Gidea Park College won 5-0
La Salette won 5-0
Langtons won 1-0
 
As Clockhouse entered the knock out stages they were still to look like conceding. In the quarter final Clockhouse met a strong Upminster team. Despite their ability, Clockhouse dissected Upminster winning 5-0 again.
 
In the semi-final Clockhouse met Gidea Park College once again. But yet again Clockhouse looked untouchable winning 2-0.
 
Clockhouse now met old foes Parsonage Farm in the final. Clockhouse and Parsonage Farm have dominated the Borough netball sceene in previous years. In another fantastic final that really highlighted the calibre of players that are partaking in netball in primary schools, Clockhouse conceded their first score in the whole competition and unfortunatley that was to be decisive with Parsonage Farm winning the final.
 
After the competition Mr Yarrow said 'Its been a great day of netball. The children have done me and the school proud! I couldn't have asked for more from them today.
 
Credit to Parsonage Farm on the victory it's always a pleasure to play them and I'm sure in the next final it will be our turn to win. There are so many positives to take out of today for example keeping the opposition at bay not conceding until the final game and the amount of children that really improved their shooting through out the day, that being said it also gives us a couple of things that we can work on to make it even better, I'd like to see a varied passing game. 5-a-side is not our preferred format of the game but you wouldn't believe that considering how well we played.
 
Once again I'd like to congratulate the players that represent the school today. I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank the parents for transport in children I really couldn't do it without you!'
 
SQUAD: Rachel C, Charlie B, Lily S-E, Bobby I, Sophie L, Beth C (c), Kayleigh M.
 
SCORERS: Beth C x 7, Bobby I x 2, Sophie L x 5, Charlie B x 5, Kayleigh M x 4, & Lily S-E x 1

Clocks gather momentum ahead of Borough Competition!

 

Clockhouse travelled outside the borough tonight to play St Peter's of Brentwood. This has become a regular in the sports calender, St Peter's always providing Clockhouse with a challenge regardless of which sport we are playing.

 
A confident start despite not being flat out resulted in Clockhouse taking an early lead with Goal Shooter Lily S-E in impressive form. St Peter's played very well defensively and the Clockhouse game plan needed to be adapted mixing up the passing and running lines. Hayden M working hard off the ball created more chances for Clockhouse to extend their lead.
 
In the third quarter St Peter's made a bit of a comeback threatening the Clockhouse third of the court. But some important interceptions from Rachel C and Charlie B proved vital to keeping Clockhouse in the lead.
 
With the final quarter to play Mr Yarrow asked the team to pick up the tempo of the game to ensure victory. Bobby I showed his conditioning, working hard from one end of the court to the other providing many timely passes and fighting tirelessly to regain possesion.
 
Clockhouse made it 2 netball wins from 2 leading into tomorrow's Hi 5 Borough Tournament. Fingers crossed for another fantastic day of netball for Clockhouse Primary School!
 
FINAL SCORE: ST PETER'S 4 - 11 CLOCKHOUSE
 
SQUAD: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Rachel C, Sophie L, Lilly S-E, & Hayden M.
 
SCORERS: Lily S-E x 11 & Sophie L x 2
 
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Very close decision - Hayden M had a great game but the opposition chose Bobby I. Well done all!
 

 

Borough Champions begin with emphatic victory!

 

In the schools first match since winning the Havering Borough Cup there was possibly a pressure of living up to the title. The Clockhouse team travelled to Suttons Primary School, who we drew 3 - 3 with last year.

 

In a flawless performance Clockhouse walked away with a 16 - 0 victory limiting Suttons to just 2 shots in the whole game.

 

Suttons did not give up from start to finish, but the Clockhouse game tempo was hard to live with. Players made debuts, and some of the returning squad tried new positions.

 

Scorers on the day were Sophie L x 6, Lily S-E x 5, Hayden M x 2, Kayleigh M x 2 and Ben C.

 

Clockhouse are next in netball action on Tuesday evening.

 

SQUAD: Beth C (c), Charlie B, Kayleigh M, Bobby I, Frankie R, Sophie L, Lily S-E, Hayden M, Rachel C, James O and Ben C

 

PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Bobby I
