I am pleased to announce the new Godiva Sports Captains for 2017/2018. For year 7 we have Madeleine J and Reni Bwho have already shown fantastic sporting ability in the house cross country and their organisation skills in arranging a great team.
Harry D has continued with his role as sports captain role this year but is being helped by Lucy P to help motivate the year 8 students this year to victory.
The successful year 9 sports captains from last year Poppy L and Charlie Pare continuing their fantastic jobs with the support of Harley W who is the new addition to the year 9 team.
I have full confidence that all 7 of these will do a fantastic job and will help lead Godiva to victory once more!
Mrs Turton, Head of Godiva
Southam vs Kenilworth tonight – MATCH CANCELLED
MEEK BUT NOT MILD!
Southam 50 Aylesford 0
Four tries from tenacious Scrum Half Jayden Meek set the tone for a very successful evening at the Shipston Rugby Tournament. A brace of tries for Man of the Match Toby Cox and two for Ben Davies, were accompanied by tries for Ashley Barnett and skipper Brendan Simms to complete an impressive victory.

Ashley Barnett was Man of the Match for a sensational tackle and fine all round performance. The pace of James Pelter, Charlie Cooke and Brendan Simms brought three tries, with the power of Hooker Thomas Warren and Prop Toby Cox completing the scoring. Jacob Goatley deserves a special mention for a great game at Scrum Half, as does speedy winger Paul Hickey who looks a real prospect.

Logan Morrison moved to the centres and was devastating in attack and defence in his Man of the Match performance. Logan’s powerful running made him one of seven try scorers. Other tries came from a dazzling solo run from Reni Bulyka, a first try for man mountain Cameron Ounsworth, one try a game Brendan Simms, a rampaging run from Oli Kitson with defenders hanging off him, and more tries from the talented Ben Davies and Thomas Warren.

An excellent run from full back James Pelter opened the scoring in a tighter game. More strong rucking and mauling from the forwards created more tries for Logan Morrison and Brendan Simms. Callum Stewart was Man of the Match for some excellent runs and neat passing. He was well supported by Hudson Byatt and James Byrne who both read the game so well.
So a wonderful evening with 125 points scored and no tries conceded. Captain Brendan Simms was Player of the Tournament for scoring in every game and for consistently making huge tackles. We move on to the Varsity Match against Bolton at home on Thursday.
WELL DONE BOYS!
