Football League 2019-20
Date Opposition  Venue Score  Match Report by Luke B (c)
26th September Christ Church Golborne High 16-5 (L) On Thursday, we played our first football match of the season against Christ Church at Golborne High. Unfortunately, we lost, partly due to us being unfamiliar playing no goal kicks and playing off the walls. We were slow starting but after a half time team talk with Mr Taylor we began to press high which forced Christ Church into mistakes. A better team performance saw goals from Freddie x 2, Dylan x 2 and Leo. In conclusion, an exciting match to play in and to watch!
10th October St. Luke's Golborne High 13-3 (L) This time, we went up against St. Luke's at Golborne High and we unfortunately lost 13-3. The scoreline was no reflection of how hard we worked and battled until the end. Due to the small pitch, we couldn't really get as many shots off as we would have liked as St. Luke's' defence didn't budge out of their own half. In the second half, things started to go our way but not shots were going in. We conceded a few goals but nothing would stop us from getting our first goal, which came from Leo. More goals went in before Luke blocked a shot in our own box and booted the ball up field. Little did he know that would be our second goal. Our determination never stopped and our third and final goal came near the end of the game. Kayden was dribbling near the box and soon enough he approached their box, going past the keeper. Billy took the shot off him but it ricocheted off Kayden and into the net. Special mention to Dylan and Freddie who didn't stop trying throughout the game. I awarded Freddie the 'Determination' wristband because he never game up. 
17th October Lowton J & I Lowton High



On Thursday, we came up against Lowton J&I at Lowton High. The final score was 1-1. For the first half, it was a really tight game until, late on, Dylan opened the scoring with a tap in from a corner. After that, it was more of the same. We made many more good chances but just couldn't score our second. They had plenty of chances but Alfie kept them all out. Eventually, they took a shot and it was debatable if it went in or not but the referee signalled a goal so we didn't argue. After that, the final whistle went to end a close game that was our best performance so far.
31st October St. Catherine's Golborne High 8-4 (L) We came up against St. Catherine's at Golborne High with the final score being 8-4. Considering they had started the season strongly and other teams getting a heavy beating against St. Catherine's, we played really well. Our main downfall was that we didn't really switch on in the first 5 minutes but after that, the game was pretty much even. Our goals came from Dylan (1), Freddie (2) and an own goal from own of their defenders. Ethan was awarded 'Passion' for his solid defending and bringing the ball out from the back, looking for a forward pass.
14th November Lowton West Golborne High 10-2 (L) On Thursday, we face Lowton West at Golborne High. Unfortunately, we were missing a few players but those who stepped in did themselves and the school proud. Lowton West were a very good team and the final score was 10-2; their wingers in particular were great finishers. Nothing was really going our way as whenever we got the ball, we were closed down immediately. Our goals came from Leo and Lucas who got his first goal for Gilded Hollins. Well done to Joe, Noah and Liam for stepping in when we needed them the most.

w/c 30th September Golborne Community Home 22-0 (L) Our first game of the season saw us play Golborne Community in shocking conditions. After a tight first half where we defended well, the score was 4-0. In the second half, our inexperience and fatigue showed as Golborne's bigger players started to run through us. We conceded 3 more tries and the final score was 22-0 which didn't reflect our effort and how well we defended at times. Michael was awarded a Spirit of the Games wristband for Passion on his debut for solid defence and showing no fear against older children!
w/c 7th October St. Peter's Home 22-4 (W) After a disappointing first game, we played Leigh St. Peter's; again, the pitch was very heavy. From kick off, we looked much better than last week. Our defence was stronger and more organised and we ran the ball in harder. We were 4-0 up at half time thanks to a try from Billy. We kept on doing what we were doing in the second half and eventually won 22-4. Billy completed his hat trick and Leo scored a full length try in the last minute which Oliver converted (his first ever goal!). This was a brilliant team performance and we're looking forward to a difficult match against XII Apostles next week!
w/c 14th October XII Apostles Away 34-6 (L) Our first away game! Unfortunately, XII Apostles scored on the first tackle of the game which wasn't part of the plan! After a slow start, our defence improved but were heading into half time 18-0 down. However, Leo scored a brilliant individual try just before half time and converted it himself which gave us hope. In the end, XII Apostles were too good for us and ran out 34-6 winners in an aggressive second half where we were the better team for large parts. Mr Taylor was proud of our resilience and commitment standing up their bigger players. A good performance despite the result!

w/c 21st October


St. John's Home



Firstly, it was good to be back playing after a long break. After a good fought match, we came out 30-18 winners. Despite the muddy pitch, we played some good rugby and defended very well. Our tries came from Billy x3 and Michael and Ethan who both got their first tries for Gilded Hollins. Billy was awarded the Spirit of the Games wristband for a brilliant performance where he led by example!
