SES Sports and Actvities Bulletin U14  Football  vs  A.I.S  (Friendly) Sharjah  English  School  hosted  Australian  InternaBonal  School  (A.I.S)  in  a  pre-­‐league  friendly.  Once  again   the  format  of  the  match  was  three  periods  of  10  mins  allowing  every  player  of  the  U14  squad  to  play.   The  first  period  saw  a  team  of  predominantly  Year  7  and  8  SES  players  hold  their  own  against  the  local   neighbors  further  up  the  Kalba  road.  SES  were  defending  deep  in  their  own  territory.  A.I.S  scored  from   just  outside  the  penalty  in  what  seemed  to  be  a  slight  error  of  judgment  from  SES  but  nevertheless   showed  a  spirit  and  a?tude  which  was  a  credit  to  the  school.   The  second  period  produced  a  goalless  draw.  The  team  which  was  a  combinaBon  of  Key  Stage  3  started   to  produce  a  structure  and  ball  movement  working  towards  the  A.I.S  goal.   The  third  and  final  period  also  displayed  a  goalless  draw  but  the  Year  9  secBon  of  the  squad  had  A.I.S  on   the  back  foot.  A  strong  midfield  secBon  lead  by  captain  Kris  Bailey  produced  waves  of  aFacking  football   exposing  the  space  available  and  were  unlucky  not  to  score.   The  first  league  game  is  away  at  AUS  and  should  be  a  tesBng  opener.

The  teams  have  shown  great  skill  and  teamwork   in  their   preparaBon   for   the  Dubai  Netball   League,  in  all  areas  of   the   court,   with   Ivy   (Year   9)   playing   as  goal   shoot   and   taking   a  number   of   great   scores.   This  helped   our   team   stay   out   in  front   throughout   the  game,   also   with  great   play  in  the  centre  of  the  court   from  Sam   and  Taya  (both   Year  9)  who  played  fantasBcally,  helping  the  team  work  as   a  unit.     In  Year  8   we  have  some  great  players  who  again   showed   great  skill  and  ability  and  will  no  doubt  have  a  lot  to  offer   this  forthcoming  season.
