Black Country Champions

Many congratulations to our brilliant Greenfield tag rugby team for such a splendid achievement in this week’s Black Country Games. The team was crowned Dudley champions earlier in the school year and on Wednesday we went to Old Halesonians RFC to compete against the best schools from the West Midlands. Our qualifying pool consisted of teams from Saint John Bosco Primary from Sandwell, Blackwood Primary from Sutton Coldfield and St Stephen’s C of E Primary from Wolverhampton.

We enjoyed a superb series of performances, making it through to the final against Church of the Ascension Primary. We have experienced several close and exciting encounters with teams from the Kingswinford school in recent years, so it was no surprise when we saw they were going to be our opponents in the final. Our brilliant team of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils put on a flawless performance and achieved a comfortable 7-3 victory. This means that Greenfield are the Black Country 2015 Tag Rugby Champions. This is the third time we have won this title in the past 5 years!

I am immensely proud of the effort, enthusiasm and positive sporting attitude shown by our team. Well done Max Lamb, Connor Palmer, Joe Owen, Toby Gorner, Ben Atherton, Isobel Norton, Jessica Noble, Sam Grimmett-Bate, Joe Kelly, Jada Thompson, Millie Knott and Sonny Morgan! What a team! You are a credit to our school and really prove how much can be achieved through dedication, team work and determination.
