ESJ Football team

22nd May 2019
On Wednesday 22nd May the school football team had their first match of the season away at Robert Arkenstall. This has traditionally been a tricky fixture as Haddenham always have a strong team. Ely started well, passing the ball round quickly and accurately and we were unlucky not to open the scoring on several occasions. At the back the defenders were rock solid and at half time the match was goalless. The second half continued in the same way with end to end attacking football. Unfortunately a lucky goal gave Haddenham the lead midway through the half and despite striking the post on more than one occasion the game finished 1-0.  Lets hope for better luck next time. Well done player of the match, Archie Ashton.
