2016 / 2017 Football Match Reports

Year 5 should be very proud of how they played on Monday 19th September. 
A very nervy start in the first game cost us with a few players not used to playing in a competitive game as we lost 3-0 to Fairisle. 
Next game despite going 2-0 down to Ludlow early on, the boys fought back brilliantly to level 2-2 with both goals from Yasir, one of which is an early contender for goal of the season! After getting back on level terms we were unlucky not to grab a winner with several chances just slipping away. 
Finally we played the favourites Abbottswood, narrowly losing 1-0. Despite the scoreline the boys showed fantastic spirit and worked hard together, unfortunately a small mistake cost us a result. 
After the tournament we organised a friendly with Mount Pleasant and the boys showed how far they had come by beating the opposition 4-1, a fantastic result! 
Monday 26th September
Year 6 had a successful first outing as a team.
A brilliant start saw them beating Hollybrook 1-0 thanks to a Yonis De Rosa goal.
0-0 draws against Townhill and Mount Pleasant were unfortunate to not have been wins after the boys dominated for the whole 7 minute match time.
A similar performance against Fairisle, we were unlucky to lose out 1-0 to their only attempt at goal.
The team showed fantastic Team work and resilience to bounce back against Portswood, winning 4-1! David Sheehy opened the scoring before Sonny Wint became centre of attention scoring an impressive Hat-Trick to leave Portswood with no way back.
The last two games were similar to the Fairisle game losing both 1-0 to St Monica and Orchard.
Overall this was one of the most successful Football tournaments Bassett Green has played in recent years. We should be hopeful of a successful league campaign to follow!
Tuesday 27th September 2016
A nervous start got the better of us in our league opener as in a cagey battle Springhill snuck over the line in a 2-0 loss.
Having warmed up our girls hit 5th gear and tore Thornhill apart in their second game. Clara Kasengu dominated the first half scoring 5 individual goals! Thornhill got a goal early in the second half but Shannon Holloway battled hard and got the all important 6th goal to give Bassett Green a well deserved victory! 
Football, Thursday 6th October
The boys kicked off their league season in emphatic style winning their first 2 fixtures.
The first match was a close affair with Townhill Park. Neither side wanted to give much away and it took a deflected strike from Yonis De Rosa to break the deadlock. After that both sides had numerous chances but to no avail. Despite our post and cross bar being hit Bassett Green managed to survive the game with a clean sheet, running out 1-0 winners after a gutsy display!
In game 2 we faced a similar challenge from Bitterne COE. At half time 0-0 was a fair result with neither side having any real goal scoring opportunities. Eventually though Bitterne began to tire and Sonny Wint took full advantage twice stealing the ball from the defender and scoring to put us 2-0 ahead in as many minutes. Bitterne COE went searching for a goal but Mateusz Marzeciak was in fine form stopping anything throen at him. Bassett Green finished their display off in fine style with Muhamed Mokhtar guiding home a free kick from distance 'top bins'.
A fantastic start to the season, lets hope we can keep it up!
Monday 10th October
The boys went to Valentine in high spirits after 2 wins in their opening games. A fantastic start saw Sonny Wint strike home from close range to give Bassett Green in dreamland. It was a close game and just before half time Valentine managed to find a gap and equalise on the stroke of half term. After the break Valentine really got their passing going and half way through the second half they pulled ahead. Despite numerous chances Bassett Green couldn't get the ball in the net, the Valentine goalkeeper in great form. A few minutes from the end a corner scramble ended with Valentine poking home a third goal. 3-1 to Valentine but the game a lot closer than the score suggests.
In match 2 against Bitterne COE the boys started brilliantly without troubling the scoreboard. Chance after chance went begging along with their goalkeeper again pulling off some fine saves. In the second half the 45 minutes of football started taking its toll physically. Bitterne COE started getting more of the ball and their left winger showed fantastic composure coolly slipping his chances away. Bitterne COE exerting the same scoreline we inflicted upon them last Thursday, 3-0!
Overall the boys have been fantastic this season, the standard of football much higher than it has been at Bassett Green in recent years. We have one league game left against Thornhill to try and finish the season on a high.
Next up our focus turns to the city cup away at Oakwood next Thursday!
Tuesday 28th February 2017


Tuesday saw the beginning of the Spring league. The girls were slightly depleted missing 3 girls from the winter league. 


As in the winter league we began our campaign against Springhill. Also identically we began by losing 2-0. The girls played brilliantly against strong opposition. Particularly noticeable was Lexie Allen who made her debut and was fantastic making big challenges in defence! 


In game 2 we played Thornhill. Despite beating them 6-0 in the winter this game was to see a reversal in winning teams. Bassett Green dominated the game throughout and in all honesty could have had 7 or 8 goals. Shannon Holloway, Wiktoria Bak and last time hat trick hero Clara Kasengu all coming close only to be denied by post, crossbar or a goalkeeper in fine form! As it was, half way through the second half Thornhill bustled their way into the Bassett Green area and the ball found its way into the net. The girls gave all they can in the remaining 5 minutes but this time it wasn't to be.


I couldn't be prouder of the effort, teamwork and determination from the girls. As the say, it's a funny old game!


Next Tuesday we play Townhill and Ludlow. GOOD LUCK GIRLS!



Thursday 2nd March


The Boys began their spring league campaign with a double header at Valentine school. 


In their first game Shirley Warren, new to the league, showed fantastic defensive resilience. Bassett Green dominated for large parts of the game, Mateusz Marzeciak in goal not having to touch the ball during the match. After a sprite start Bassett were destined to do everything but score until finally Yasir Haidari opened the scoring with a calm finish under the goalkeeper. David Sheehy then doubled the lead before half time. In the second half Yonis De Rosa missed a penalty before Muhammad Mokhtar and Sonny Wint both got goals to their name. 4-0 was a good solid win for the boys and the performance certainly warranted more.


In game 2 the boys started excellently again, this time against defending league champions Valentine. Yasir Haidari did some great work down the wing before whipping in a cross that was eventually bundled home by Yonis De Rosa. Bassett looked in control until a Valentine corner bounced around the area and into the Bassett Green net. Following their goal Valentine found a new gear and started attacking consistently. Despite Bassett's best efforts there was no stopping them and eventually half time came with Bassett trailing 5-1. After a stern team talk and reassurance that we could get back into the game Bassett played the second half much like the start of the first half. Sonny Wint got himself on the scoresheet and David Sheehy persistently caused the Valentine defenders problems. Eventually the final whistle called time on a 6-2 loss. Despite the result the Valentine manager was full of praise. Without that purple patch the boys did themselves proud in what was a very competitive game. It's now important Bassett look to win all their games in hope that Valentine drop points somewhere this season. 

City Five-A-Side Champions!

Bassett Green has taken yet another City championship this time in year 6 boys football. After 3 group stages taking place on Monday’s at St. Georges School the top 4 teams met for the final on the 6th of March. Bassett Green A, Springhill A, Hollybrook A and St Monica A fought out in a round robin event to find the best team in Southampton.

The first game was a 1-1 draw with Springhill with a fantastic solo goal from Yonis De Rosa and the opposition equalising with only 10 second left on the clock! A fine result against a strong team but the boys were disappointed not to have won. The second game against Hollybrook really came to life and finished 4-2 with goals from Yonis, Muhammed Mokhtar and Sonny Wint. The final game for Bassett Green finished 3-0 with the same boys sharing the goals between them. A brilliant achievement from the boys. Well done to;

Wednesday 15th March


Wednesday saw the boys play Townhill Park and Shirley Warren. 


Earlier in the season against Townhill Park, Bassett Green Won 1-0 in a tight game. This game was no different. Bassett controlled the game, stringing passes together and putting pressure on Townhill from the start. Townhill were excellent in defence, organised and resilient. Despite many chances Bassett couldn't hit the target and the Townhill keeper was rarely tested. Halfway through Townhill got the break they needed and their striker found himself 1 on 1 with Mateusz. A cool, calm finish saw Townhill go 1-0 up. Despite more chances Bassett couldn't get the breakthrough they needed and Townhill ended up winners. Well played Townhill.


Game 2 saw a rematch from 2 weeks ago. Bassett showed fantastic attitude to forget the Townhill score straight away and with the first attack scored through Yonis De Rosa. Bassett had their tails up and within 2 minutes it was 2-0 through Muhammad Mokhtar. It was all one way traffic but despite Bassett's best efforts Shirley Warren had learnt a thing or 2 about defending since the last encounter and the score remained the same. 2-0 winners, well done Bassett Green!


The boys now have one more match against Thornhill (Date to be confirmed) before the city tournament at the beginning of April. 

Thursday 6th April 2017


The boys concluded their league season in impressive form with a 4-1 win away at Thornhill Primary School. Despite having to use mini goals due to vandalism Bassett Green dealt with the changes immediately and through some slick passing and intelligent movement Muhammad Mokhtar fired us into a 1-0 lead. Half way through the half the best move of the match ended with a cheeky flick from Sonny Wint for 2-0 before Yonis De Rosa added a third before half time. In the second half Thornhill showed great resilience and made life a lot harder for the Bassett team. Eventually their hard work paid off and Thornhill earned a well deserved consolation goal. Bassett were not finished however and shortly before half time another smooth passing passage of play was coolly finished by 'Man of the Match' David Sheehy.


The effort these boys have put in this year has been fantastic. Indoor City Champions and 6-A-Side semi finalists are huge achievements for our school who in recent years have found football tough going. Looking forward to next year we have a lot to be excited about and I'm sure we can fit a few friendlies in after Easter.


Well played all!

Monday 15th May


The girls football team enjoyed a friendly game against Moorlands primary school last night. It was great to see the girls back in action after what has been a very successful year development wise. Each game the girls rise in confidence and it has been fantastic to see marked improvements in all of their games. 


We took the game to Moorlands early on but their Goalkeeper was in fantastic form, there were also some fantastic defending blocks taking place. After a shaky few minutes Bassett broke up-field just before half time as Shannon Holloway managed to wriggle through 4 players before neatly placing the ball past the Goalkeeper.


In the second half it was all one way traffic as Bassett turned up the heat. On another day we would have scored them all but it took a special strike from Wiktoria Bak to seal the victory as she returned the goal kick in emphatic style from the halfway line through the Goalkeeper!


Well done girls, I hope we can fit in some more fixtures before you head off to your secondary schools.
