Majestic Trophies - Match v King Edwin
Another great performance from our boys tonight. Our 7 a side team lost by 3 goals to nil they played really well together for their first match. Goalkeeper Owen Law made a series of impressive saves and James Mallendar proved to be a great captain by leading the team throughout the match.
Our next league match is at home on Thursday 4th October to Carr Hill.
St John's 4- Carr Hill 3
What a fantastic display tonight (4.10.12) from our boys to break down the mighty Carr Hill.
Everyone of them played their part in tonight's match, working really hard as a team.
They should all be really proud of themselves, I know we are.
Our next league match is on Thursday 11th October against Sir Edmund Hillary
Sir Edmund Hillary 1- St John's 0 (11-10-12)
The score does not do this match justice - the boys played a very physical game of end to end football which had 0-0 written all over it. Both teams had numerous shots on goal and despite picking up an injury during warm up our Keeper Owen pulled off some amazing stops.
Our last league match before the winter break is against Redlands on Wednesday 17th October - played on the Glassworks site.
Redlands 5- St John's 4 (17.10.12)
Well despite being 3-0 up in the first 15 minutes, lack of concentration by our boys gave Redlands the chance to come back- which they did. A game full of twists and turns including 2 missed penalties and rabbits on the pitch. Special praise goes to Jack Booth for stepping up as goal keeper making a series of fantastic saves, James Mallendar for leading throughout and RJ Oliver-Goose who scored his first goal for the school team.
Overall a good team performance tonight.
Next match, November 5th - Parry Cup Quarter final away at Norbridge.
Norbridge 1- St. Johns 2 (5.11.12)
Bonfire night got off to a sparkling start after the boys put in a top performance in the Parry Cup Quarter Final. Kian Ackroyd scored within the first 5mins in his first full start and with continued pressure Jaden Thackery doubled the score before half-time. With light fading fast Norbridge stepped up their game but our defenders held firm, only a 'debatable' penalty provided Norbridge with a lifeline. Continued efforts and commitment of all the team which welcomed back Thomas Bedford sporting his 'Cech' head gear kept them at bay and we well deserved the result at the final whistle.
We await the draw for the Semi-Finals.
Winter Break is now upon us and we hope the team has an earned rest ready for the next half of the season.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Carlton & Mrs Spencer.
Congratulations to James Mallender who through dedication and hard work has earned a place in the Bassetlaw Boys squad playing his first match against Scarborough on November 2nd.

Prospect Hill 3 - St John's 2 Penalty Shootout
Prospect Hill 0- St John's 0 @full time
I can not begin to put into words how incredibly proud of the boys I am tonight.
After an amazing 40 minutes of end to end football resulted in a 0-0 draw extra time was played with shots and incredible saves made by both teams.
The boys really pulled together and played as a team, ever pushing forward for a chance at the cup final but it wasn't to be.
After a close penalty shoot out, with goals from Jaden Thackery and Konrad and super saves again from man of the match Owen Law it wasn't to be and we we lost the match 3-2.

St John’s stun champions to step closer to the title
Published in the Worksop Guardian
A stunning performance by St John’s against regining champions Carr Hill has made the improbable very possible.
The 4-2 victory has left St John’s just one win short of the Division One title – having come from the very bottom of the table at the halfway stage of the season.St John’s were successful against Hillary and Prospect before their latest win against the reigning champions left them with one final game against Redlands to clinch an unlikely championship win.
Against Carr Hill they swept into an early 2-0 lead through goals by Finlay Allison, before Carr Hill fought back when Oliver Ashwell reduced the deficit.
The second half followed a similar pattern when Jaden Thackery struck twice in quick succession to restore St John’s two goal advantage.
Although Carr Hill again responded when A.J Romeo closed the gap, James Mallender skilfully marshalled the St John’s defence and Owen Law looked very secure in goal.
St. John’s will be mindful of their early season meeting against final opponents Redlands, when they led 3-0 before succumbing to a five goal retaliation.Add block
