2011 Season Report

The 2011 season proved to be a good one, with the School winning the majority of the fixtures played and importantly, the boys continuing to develop both their individual technique and their roles within their respective teams.

The 1st team in particular, had a fine season, playing some fast, fluid football which resulted in them winning seven of their eight games. Indeed, the 1st XI comprised several senior players in their third season of first team football, and their experience at that level proved to be extremely effective. Ben Grayson (Capt.) grew into the role, led by example, and was fully deserving of his Full Colours.

It is always great to hear from the coaches of the prospective talent heading up through the School; I cannot thank them enough for the work they do with the junior boys, not only in nurturing potential, but also in ensuring the boys continue to enjoy their football.

It is exciting that Girl’s football is also developing at pace within Blundell’s. The team had a successful year despite it being the first time that many of the girls had ever played. The Kings Taunton tournament proved to be a valuable learning experience and allowed the girls to taste victory for the first time in one of their games. Ellie Hedley-Dent proved to be the star of the year, and after attending trials for the South West Regional Team, played in all of the regional games as a key player in defence.
