Fixture reports

Dane Court 24 - 5 Wellesley Houserugby

The U12's first encounter on the rugby field proved to be a successful on as they overcame the more experienced Wellesey House team on Wednesday 22nd February on a dank and cold afternoon running and passing with a slippery ball was difficult and the many mistakes were indicative of a side learning the game and getting used to dealing with how to play in the wet. However there was a huge effort from those in the scrum and we made some good tackles when we needed to defend, Ed Baker, Dan Adams and the impressive Jo Wyatt led the forward battle and Lewis Doyle and Tom Halfpenny made the most of any space. Halfpenny scored three excellent tries, one of which was converted by Doyle who went over for our fourth try which he then also converted. Although Wellesey scored near the end it was merely a deserved consolation.


Dane Court 36 - 0 Charles Dickens

Coming off the back of a defeat last week our Year 8 team looked to bounce back in their game against Charles Dickens. The team, whose strength lays in their direct running would prove to be too strong for a determined Dickens team and they came away with a first comprehensive win of the season.

TeamDane Court Grammar School 3 - 0 Welling School

There are many uncertainties in life, the price of oil and David Beckham's hairstyles being examples, but, like death and taxes there is an inevitability about the performance of the Year 9 football team. As they took the field on Saturday against Welling School they faced another test of their character and ability and they rose to the challenge once more. The pleasingly large crowd of supporters witnessed another display of confidence matched by enduring effort which concluded with a comfortable 3-0 victory. The dream of retaining the Kent Cup is still very much alive after six rounds of increasingly skilful opponents and the ultimate test awaits against the very strong Hurstmere School from Sidcup.

titleBeths Grammar School 1 - 3 Dane Court Grammar School

As part of their preparations for Saturday's Kent Cup Semi Final our Year 9s travelled to BETH's Grammar School in Bexley yesterday, Monday 20th February. The fact that the game was played is in itself a testament to the status of this team within the county as we were contacted by Beth's who asked to play against us as they wanted to play a team of quality for their students to test themselves against the current county champions. For our boys to forfeit a day off school to play was a reflection of the sporting spirit and competitiveness that sits well within this squad. It also represented an opportunity for us to glean some information about the Welling team that we will face this weekend, who beat Beths in the Quarter Final on penalties after the game was tied 2-2 after extra time.

KSFADane Court Grammar School 3 - 1 Hayesbrook 

Sport, like life, is made up of moments that we remember and when all is said and done, when the adrenaline has calmed, the boots have been cleaned and when the final analysis has been made we hope that we remember more good moments than bad. This Kent Cup Semi Final was made up of a number of significant moments and some will surely stick in the memory those who were watching and more so those who were participating.

KSFAPriory School U16 5 – 1 Dane Court Grammar School U16

This Girls U16 County Cup Semi Final was exactly what it should be, a really tough football match. This was no dainty, prissy affair with the players dancing around the ball like they would their handbags at a disco; this was quality football from two committed sides. Both teams obviously deserved to be in the last four of the competition and enhanced their reputations with their display. The result went against us but we couldn’t complain. Dane Court’s very good side were beaten by Priory’s excellent one.
