U11 Girls Fylde Football Competition

Last week, for the very first time, KGJS' U11 girls (pictured above and to the right) took part in the Fylde Football Competition. It was a fantastic opportunity for the girls to put their skills into action and experience their first football event.


Kirkham Grammar School U17s travelled to Stafford Rugby Club to play Bablake & King Henry VIII School. In a very tightly-contested game, Kirkham lead 14-10 at half time after two tries from Kirkham captain Morgan Dryhurst- Jones. In the second half, which was again equally well contested, KGS only lead 26-22 with ten minutes to go. However, two late tries by centre Luke Denn and prop Oliver Corkish sealed an exciting away win.

The U12 squad travelled to a very frosty Stafford RUFC on Saturday. Despite the cold conditions, they handled and passed the ball with much skill. Kirkham had the edge out wide with Junior Lavelle, in particular, enjoying a great deal of possession. Kirkham scored six tries in total to run out convincing winners, amongst the scorers were Harry Lawson (2), Torrin Anderson and Charlie Robinson (2) who controlled the backs well, making some telling breaks to set up some potent attacks throughout the game.
