Deepings Year 7 boys started their school sporting careers with a 3-1 win against Sir John Gleed School Spalding.
After working through two trail sessions of 46 boys, these boys showed as a team why they shone out as individuals in training. As a team they communicated from the off, with good leadership and talk from captain Needham. After the two teams got used to each other it was Deeping who pressed to take the advantage, neat passing down the right side between Smithson and Sharpe, opened up space for Thirsk who hit it sweetly across the opposition goal keeper into the bottom left corner, to open both his personal account and the teams’ first. As the half wore on Needham, Holmes and Kettringham were solid at the back and we're confident to press forward with the presence of the reliable Cook in goal. Who was brought into action frequently and responded well each time. First half 1-0 Deeping.
Second half Gleed started strongly, with several threatening attacks, however after Sharpe dropped back and took control of midfield things started to break on the counter, with sharp passing between Penny, Shelby and Patterson it forced a corner. Shelby floated in the prefect cross which found the head of Sharpe who headed high into the net. Deeping turned round straight from restart and pressed again, with Sharpe, Thirsk and Patterson forming a deadly three man attack. The ball was fed out wide to Patterson who while crossing the ball to the far post managed to place it over the keeper into the far top corner. Whether he meant it, you'll have to ask him. Gleed weren't going down without a fight, and after a good break thought middle of the park, they finally got the ball past a disappointed Cook.Deeping closed out the remainder of the game. To win comfortably 3-1.
Well done to all the boys, we look forward to seeing those playing in the Thursday game and the rest of the squad at training next week.
Remember boys it's a long season!

Deeping School V’s Sir John Gleed School
The year 9 football team travelled to Gleed looking for their first win of the season. Deepings started brightly creating several early chances, but unfortunately not able to convert. However, they continued to press and were rewarded when Nathan Pickering smashed one home.
The Gleed defence could not cope and the goals started to flow , a further two more goals from Nathan Pickering and one from Kai Hagget-King saw us through to half time.
A few changes at half time and again it was all Deeping pressure. The team marshalled from the back by Cameron Baldock-Smith and Oliver Piddington gave the Gleed team little sniff of a come back. Several more chances were created yet only one could be converted by Kai Hagget-Smith. The game ended 5-0.
Mr Cotton – Team Manager
On Wednedsay 24th September, Deepings U15 girl’s netball team set out to play their first game of the season against Sir John Gleed School. The team included: Carla Thompson, Holly Risk, Mia Roberts, Olivia Jowett, Emily Needham, Isabella Oakley, Megan Walker and Beth Wilde. With a squad of eight, the girls finished the third quarter 9-7 to Deeping. Being such a close call and the score going either way; the team stepped up with courage and determination and finished the match with an impressive score of 19-7. Although the year ten girls won, to improve their game the team need to slow the play down, giving them more time to make better decisions. Another area to be developed is the consistency of the shooting. With encouragement and grit, the girls lead themselves to an impressive victory.
Isabella Oakley – Team Captain
The Deepings School under 14 rugby team romped home with their first victory of the season with a match score of 45-12 against The Peterborough School. Tries were scored by Joe Woolfitt, Kai and Nils Hagget-King, with two each from Nathan Pickering and Jason warner. Despite some difficult angles and distance to cover, five tries were converted by Nathan Pickering. Mr Allen (team manager) congratulated the team saying “there were some great individual performances – still work to do on organisation and team play”.
The team also recognised areas for improvement to enable them to keep the pressure on any future opponents, one of the reasons we came out as winners, in my opinion, was the effort and commitment shown by the team during training sessions.
Well- deserved man of the match was shared by Jason Warner for his fantastic defensive skills and Kai Haggett-King for his attacking style of play.
Toby Dunn – Team Captain.
Team Selection – Alastair Meikle, Jake Crowson, Jamie Gregson, Jamie Wordsall, Jamie Wand, Jason Warner, Myles Flaherty, Nils Hagget-King, Toby Dunn, Kai Hagget-King, Nathan Pickering, Joe Woolfit, Jack Bray, Sam Sayer, Daniel Newcombe.
