Football Coxheath: 2 Headcorn:1

Headcorn travelled to Coxheath Primary School on Wednesday 23rd March  for a highly anticipated match between the two teams. Coxheath started the game strongly, quickly taking control of the ball and putting pressure on Headcorn's defence.

Despite several strong efforts, Headcorn were unable to stop Coxheath's offensive plays, which resulted in an early goal for the home team. Headcorn refused to give up and continued to push forward, creating a few opportunities to score. However, Coxheath's defence held strong, and Headcorn went into halftime trailing 1-0.

In the second half, Headcorn came out firing on all cylinders, determined to get back into the game. The score remained 1-0 for a large part of the game until Coxheath scored a second. Our efforts finally paid off when Headcorn were awarded a penalty late in the match. Siddie stepped up to take the spot kick and coolly slotted it past the Coxheath keeper, bringing the score to 2-1.

Despite a valiant effort by Headcorn in the closing minutes of the game, they were unable to find the equaliser, and the match ended 2-1 in favour of Coxheath. Although disappointed with the loss, Headcorn's players showed great sportsmanship and respect for their opponents, and they look forward to a rematch in the future.


Girl's Football Match - Loose: 0 Headcorn: 4

Headcorn School's Girls Football team secured an impressive victory away at Loose Primary School on Wednesday this week, winning 4-0 in a thrilling match. The girls displayed exceptional teamwork and dedication, demonstrating their passion for the sport and their commitment to success.

A special mention must go to Bea in Year 4, who delivered a standout performance and scored a well-deserved hat-trick. Her impressive skills on the field left the opposition defence struggling to keep up. Additionally, Olivia in Year 5 deserves recognition for her outstanding free kick which helped to secure the team's victory.

Not only was the team's offence in top form, but the defence was equally solid. They managed to shut down Loose's attacks with precision, keeping them from scoring even a single goal. Our goalkeeper, Amy in Year 6, whose steady performance throughout the game, was also instrumental in maintaining our clean sheet.

It's a pleasure to see such a strong and determined group of girls representing our school on the field. We are incredibly proud of their achievements and their dedication to their sport. Let's continue to cheer them on as they take on future challenges and soar to even greater heights!


Boughton Monchelsea: 0 Headcorn: 2 - February 2023

Headcorn enjoyed a 2-0 victory against hosts Boughton Monchelsea School this week in a tight game of football. An entertaining match saw Headcorn succeed with goals either side of halftime, despite the difficult condition of a very muddy pitch.

Well done to all those who were involved and a massive thank you to all supporters who stayed to cheer on the teams in very chilly conditions.



Match Report: Coxheath:3 Headcorn:1

Headcorn visited Coxheath Primary School this week to fulfil one of our league fixtures for this term. A new team featuring some younger faces took to the field and played some fantastic football, moving the ball around nicely and marshalling the defence well.

Eventually a slight lapse of concentration saw Coxheath take the lead. However football is a game of fine margins and Headcorn were not without their chances, almost catching Coxheath on the break on a number of occasions but for centimetres preventing an equaliser. Coxheath scored again just before half time making the score 2-0.

After half time the team started to regain their composure, but a scramble in the Headcorn box lead to Coxheath’s third goal. This did not leave the team discouraged and they continued to work openings through Toby, Matthew and Siddie. Headcorn finally scored a deserved first when Finlay D, Toby and Matthew combined to score our consolation goal. We hold our heads high and continue into next weeks fixture against Marden Primary School.
