Six players from year 6 six and three players from year 5 made up the Roman Road squad that faced other local schools in the Felling Gateshead SFA Astro competition held at Gateshead Stadium.
Six schools were split into two groups of three with inter group placing matches being used at the end.
We started off against Windy Nook. After lots of chances at both ends, Windy Nook scored a second half goal and won 1-0. Caedmon were next and we didn't play as well losing 4-1. Keith Candlish scored our goal.
This meant we then played in the fifth place play off against St. John's. Despite hitting the bar twice and the post once, Roman Road could not get the vital goal meaning it finished 0-0.
Windy Nook beat South Street 1-0 in the final.
Year 6 took part in the Felling Swimming Gala on the 18th March and were absolutely fantastic. The boys team won bronze medals for both the freestyle and the medley relay. Andrew won a bronze medal for backcrawl. All the children who took part improved their personal best. Well done, you were great ambassadors for Roman Road!!!
The year 6 Sports Club have started to train for Sportshall Athletics.
Preparations include relays, hurdling and using the bounce mat. New indoor hurdles have been acquired through the voucher schemes and some year 6 children put them to good use as the photos show.
By the time the indoor fetival arrives, it is hoped that we have a good amount of athletes that qualify to represent the cluster in the Borough competition.

This will start off for Year 6 girls only but if any Year 5 girls are interested, please come and see me. Looking forward to it!
Last night, the school team played Falla Park at home in a league match. Even though the pitch conditions were difficult, the team ended the match with an excellent 6-1 win.
Josh Archibald continued his excellent scoring run with another four goals, making his haul ten in the last three matches. The other two were scored by Andrew Oliver whose strength was a problem for the spirited hardworking Falla team all match.
It was pleasing that the team varied the style of play due to the long grass and scored three headed goals as well as being unlucky when a header from Joe Hunter did not properly cross the line.
The Lindisfarne Thursday league is drawing to a close with our school still to play St Augustines, St Albans and Falla Park.
