Year 6 Boys Football
On Tuesday evening our year 6 boys football team faced Bishop Aldhelm the PEDSSA cup. It was an extremely had fought game, with the two teams drawing 1-1 at full-time, meaning that extra-time loomed. Despite their best efforts, neither team was able to break the deadlock and take the victory. The game went to penalties, requiring a huge amount of focus and determination from both teams. Ferndown eventually went on to win 3-2 on penalties. A massive congratulations to all the boys for their incredible team effort and a special thank you to Mr Kinsey for expertly managing the team at short notice!

Year 8 Boys Football
On Wednesday our year 8 boys football team visited Budmouth College for the quarter-finals of the County Cup. Ferndown took an early and convincing lead, scoring 2 goals within the first moments of the first half. Despite a confident start, the boys could not hold on to their lead, with Budmouth scoring two goals in quick succession to make it 2-2 at half time. Following the break, Budmouth scored again, taking a 3-2 lead. However, a determined Ferndown team bought it back to 3-3 moments later. The game looked set to go to extra-time, however, Budmouth caused heartbreak by scoring a winner in the dying seconds of the game, with it finishing 4-3 to Budmouth. A disappointing result for our tremendous year 8 team, however, the boys should be proud of their achievements and team spirit.

Sports Leaders Host Year 4 Football Tournament
A massive thank you and well done to a number of our year 8 students who helped Mrs Turner to run a football tournament for year 4 children from our local feeder first schools. The tournament aimed to give pupils from Ferndown First School, Hampreston First School and Parley First School  an opportunity to visit Ferndown Middle School for the qualifying rounds of the East Dorset Area Championships. Congratulations to Ferndown First School who were the overall winners.

Our year 8 students were a credit to our school, encouraging our visitors as well as helping to organise and referee the games. Well done to all of those that helped and a special thank you to Mrs Turner for the time and effort she puts in to arranging such a valuable event.
