Ribble Valley Girls Football

Eight Teams came together to contest the Ribble Valley Competition at Ribble Valley 3G on Weds 27th November.  The weather was wet but the spirits were high amongst all girls
as they all played every team.  There were some extremely high standards of playing amongst all teams but the top four teams were as follows:
1) – St Marys Langho
2) St Leonards Langho
3) Grindleton
4) Waddington and West Bradford.
Thanks must go to the referees from Accrington Academy who have been following the FA “Game of their own” programme to become Girls’s Football Leaders and referees.  Well done to all teams involved but especially to St Marys Langho who will qualify for the County Finals in January.

Inclusive Event

This year’s Inclusive event followed a new very exciting format. 48 children from 15 Hyndburn & Ribble Valley Primary schools came along to take part in our specialist inclusive event held at Oakhill College. Sports leaders from Oakhill did a fantastic job at assisting with the delivery of the event to help this run smoothly. Each child received their own Passport document at the beginning of the event, as they travelled around the 6 or 7 stations each focusing on a different activity, they received a stamp or sticker for every country/station they visited. Below shows the activities the children took part in.

France – Archery

Canada – Kurling

UK – Boccia

Spain – Fencing

Australia – Pound

USA – Seated Volleyball

Ukraine – Throwing Circus

The children had so much fun experiencing new sports and activities, thank you to Oakhill for providing the excellent sports leaders & the use of their facilities.

Year 3/4 Football Competitions

This year the influx of entries for the Years 3/4 Football competition meant we had to split the event into 2 separate competitions. The first event had 8 teams represent their schools. We split the teams into 2 groups which all competed for the top 2 places in their group. Playing 12-minute games the teams thoroughly enjoyed scoring lots of goals and the teams qualifying through to the Semi-finals were St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Clayton and St Marys Oswaldtwistle V Green Haworth. Gaining a victory and making it through to the semi finals both showing an excellent standard of play was St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Oswaldtwistle resulting in a very high standard final match!

The top 3 finishing positions were

1st St Peter & St Pauls

2nd St Marys Oswaldtwistle

3rd – St Marys Clayton


The second of the Hyndburn Year 3& 4 events had the best of the weather as the rain stopped for a while.  Eleven teams were competing across two groups and the standard of play was a high as ever.

The winners of group one was St Andrews who played the runners up in group two who were Peel Park A.  Runners up in group one was Mount Pleasant A who played winners of two St Bartholomew’s.  St Andrews won their semi-final outright whilst the second semi-final went to the dreaded penalties which Mount Pleasant won 3 – 1.

The third and fourth place play off saw Peel Park take 3rd place.  The final was an extremely close affair between Mount Pleasant A and St Andrews.  St Andrews had beaten Mount Pleasant in the group stages but the final saw Mount Pleasant score an early goal to take the gold medals.


Well Done to both the winning teams and thank you to the Hyndburn Academy Sports Leaders & Young Referees that assisted with refereeing the games!

Ribble Valley B Team Football

Eight teams attended the B team competition, with 4 teams in 2 different groups. The event took place at the fantastic new Ribble Valley 3G pitches, with excellent referring from the Ribblesdale Sports Leaders.

In the group stages each team played each other in 1o minute games, points were awarded for a win & a draw. The top 2 schools within each group went through to the semi-finals. Winning group A St Marys Langho and 2nd place St Leonard’s A team, winning group B Salesbury and 2nd place Waddington & West Bradford.

The result of the semi finals meant Salesbury & St Leonards had to go to penalties, these were very tense as all 7 players had to take a penalty, will St Leonard’s be taking the win on their last team players shot.

The final ended up St Marys Langho that had not yet lost a game V St Leonard’s Langho. Both teams played extremely well and for the 10-minute game both teams had some great opportunities, however at the final whistle it was still a draw resulting in penalties yet again.

St Mary’s yet again remained undefeated and won the title of Ribble Valley B team Champions. In 2nd place St Leonard’s & 3rd place Salesbury.

Well done & a massive thank you to the leaders from Ribblesdale.
