    13th October 2017

    On Thursday 12th October, the Boys Football team played their first match of the season. It was a friendly organised by our school against Copperfield Academy.

    The match gave the boys a chance to play together as a team for the first time competitively this new academic year. Given that this was their fist game of the year, the boys played very well and ended up beating Copperfield Academy 8-2.

  • Early Season 7s Tournament

    5th October 2017

    On Thursday 5th October the girl’s football team competed in the Early Season 7s Tournament. It was the first time the girls had played competitive matches as a team, but it didn't show as they confidently won the first game. The confidence continued throughout and saw the girls win all their group games to finish top. The winning streak didn't stop there and the girls continued with their excellent play through the quarter final, semi-final and final game to win the tournament without losing a game. 

    Congratulations to all the girls for an excellent team effort and a well-deserved win.

    The girls will now go on to represent Gravesham in the Kent schools tournament.

  • Norris-Telling Shield - Year 6 Football FINAL

    27th March

    On Monday 27th March the Year 6 Boy’s Football Team had the final of the Norris-Telling shield, against Shears Green.  With two excellent teams competing against each other, the game was going to be close.

    The first half was very tense with both teams playing well, but neither team could find a way past the goalkeepers especially Joe McManus who made some excellent saves.

    After half-time Meopham started the better team and got the goal they deserved through an excellent volley from Massi Perry to make the score 1-0.  The boys didn’t stop working hard and with some excellent play and got their second goal of the game with Jonny Mahoney scoring. However, Shears Green did come back into the game and scored a penalty to make it 2-1. The boys defended excellently and with the last kick of the game Joe made another unbelievable save to keep the score at 2-1 at the final whistle.

    We have now won the Norris-Telling Shield two years in a row! Congratulations to the boys on their excellent win and all their hard work!! Well Done Boys.

Meopham played brilliantly winning five out of seven matches and we progressed to the semi-final. It was a very exciting game which we won 2-0.
    The final, against St Joseph's, was next and, again, it was a close match ending 1-1 at the final whistle. The game went into extra-time where we were unlucky to lose.

  • Football - Woodhead Girls' Shield


    The girl’s football team had their first cup match of the season and came up against Singlewell School. The game was very close and tense but Meopham started very well and took a deserved lead with a goal from Anna. However, Singlewell grew into the game and scored 2 goals to take a 2-1 lead and despite great effort from the Meopham girls they couldn’t find a way past the Singlewell Goalkeeper and the game finished 2-1. Although a loss is disappointing, all the girls should hold their heads high as for many of them it was their first ever football match. Well done girls!!

  • Gravesham Basketball Tournament

The next 2 games ended as a draw against a strong St Johns team and an unfortunate loss against Wrotham Road. This saw the team finish in joint second in the group with Wrotham Road. However, as Wrotham Road had scored more points during the tournament they progressed into the semi-finals ahead of us. A promising start to the basketball team. Well done.
