Football Club


    Bedwell Football Club has expanded rapidly over the last five years, and we now have over 70 boys and girls training with us every week. This year we are fielding teams in the Year 5/6 girls, Year 5/6 boys and Year 3/4 leagues, with all 3 teams playing regular matches throughout the Autumn and Spring terms. We also run lunchtime training sessions for children from Year 1, as well as inter-house competitions during the Summer Term!

    We have worked really hard to improve our football over the last few years, and since finishing bottom of Division 3 six years ago, we've made some huge steps forward, with our Girls finishing as league and cup runners up twice in the last four years and our Boys making it to the Stevenage FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in 2016 - and then following that up with a return to the semis in 2017. We've also been delighted to see four of our most talented players recruited to play for the Stevenage District side over the last few years, and over the last twelve months we have also hosted the Stevenage Year 3/4 tournament, the Girls Autumn Tournament, the inaugural SDPSFA 3-a-side event and the Stevenage Primary Schools FA finals night - which you can read about here.

  • March - Girls
    Our Girls team have faced some tough tests over the last few weeks, playing two of the best teams in town in key League and Cup games. Straight after half-term, they faced Almond Hill in the Stevenage School FA Cup quarter-finals. With our defence coming under some serious pressure, Brooke, Emmie and Victoria worked tirelessly to track back from midfield and cut-off attacks, while Sara was a constant threat to the opposition every time she got the ball. Going into half-time with the score at 2-0, the Girls looked to have the game under control, but an Almond Hill fight-back put the game in the balance, before Bedwell stretched away again to win 4-2 and book a place in the semi-finals.

    A few weeks later, the girls faced St Vincent in a key League game, with both teams going into the match undefeated. With Emmie unavailable, Natasha and Lily stepped-up to play key roles, but despite three excellent saves from Maddison in goal, we still found ourselves 1-0 down at half-time. In the second-half, however, with Daniele pushing into midfield and giving the team extra drive, we had far more of the possession, and a fantastic finish from Sara saw Bedwell level the score at 1-1. The game finished a draw, which was a very fair result, and means that we are now third in the league, 1 point behind Giles and St Vincent, but with a game in hand.

  • March - Boys
    Despite some great play in the Autumn Term, our Boys team came into the Spring without a win in the League. All that has changed over the last few weeks, however, with back-to-back wins propelling the team up the League - and giving a fair reflection of their effort, talent and determination, too. First up, the team took on a strong Peartree side (who had knocked us out of the Cup earlier in the season). Great pressing work from Jamie, Adi and Riley in midfield kept the opposition defence under constant pressure, and created plenty of attacking opportunities - which Cristiano capitalised on brilliantly, securing a hat-trick in a 3-1 Bedwell victory. Two weeks later, the team took on Walkern, putting in a great team performance to win 11-1, with 7 different names on the score sheet.
  • February
    On the last Friday before half-term, our Year 5/6 Girls Football team finally had the chance to play their first game since December, taking on Camps Hill School. With Emmie missing through injury, Maddison and Natasha were called-up to the squad for just their second games, while Daniele pushed into midfield for much of the game, playing a key role in driving our attacks forward. The girls adapted really well to all of these changes, playing with energy and enthusiasm throughout the game, and constantly looking to pressurise opponents and win the ball. As a result (and thanks, as always, to a brilliant performance from Sara), the team won 8-0, with hat-tricks for Sara and player-of-the-match Victoria, along with well-worked goals from Millie and Brooke.

  • November
    The Year 3/4 team’s second game of the season was another terrifically exciting, end-to-end game, packed with chances. In goal, Samuel impressed, showing himself to be a very safe pair hands, dealing with Giles' long shots calmly and efficiently. Raegan and George Copeland were an inspiring defence, killing-off nearly every attack, while Billy, Harvey and TJ provided boundless energy, discipline (and a lot of running) in midfield. Up front, Aleks refused to let anything get between him and the goal - even after taking a ball to the face in the warm-up that left him with a bloody nose. George Clark, however, was our man of the match, with his amazing work-rate and fantastic ball skills thoroughly impressing Mr Lester and Mr Moses. In the end, a strong Giles side won 1-0, but it was another highly impressive outing from the boys which bodes well for the rest of the year.

  • October
    The Boys took part in their own version of the Autumn Tournament, beginning with the group stage hosted here at Bedwell. The boys went undefeated to top the group and qualify for the finals event, held at Marriotts on 13th October. An unlucky loss followed by two very tight draws saw the boys knocked out, but strong performances suggest an excellent season lies ahead!

  • September
    Our Girls Football team kicked-off their season away at Ashtree School with a fantastic 2-0 win, with new recruits Brooke and Sara immediately getting on the scoresheet. The girls then took on the rest of Stevenage at the SDPSDA Autumn Tournament, playing brilliantly in their group games (scoring far more goals than any other team), but unfortunately losing-out on penalties in the playoffs.
