Rugby - Abbey Gate College v Weaverham (Away)

Under 13's - AGC v Weaverham High School On a beautiful sunny morning the overnight deluge of rain had left the pitch very wet especially through the middle. In a 13 a side game the 24 players in the opposition squad almost equalled our whole year group to select from! The College defended well but when in possession kicked it away too often as Weaverham ran in 3 early tries and only the de... read more

Football - U16 ISFA Cup AGC 0 - 5 Rishworth

The final score line belies a much closer and keenly contested game. The College coped well with the loss due to illness of their defensive lynchpin Fergus Tuite with Wilf Smith slotting into defence on debut. A confident start saw a well-rehearsed set play from a corner allow Charlie Dearling time to curl an exquisite shot against the bar in the opening minute. It therefore came as a hammer blow... read more

Hockey v Tarporley

With a last minute fill in at Goal Keeper, by the very helpful Lauren Norbury, we headed off to Tarporley. The girls started strongly and within minutes of the starting whistle had scored, with the ball sneaking over the line. Unfortunately minutes later, Tarporley picked up their game and evened out the score at 1-1. With that score, came many more, (6 to be precise) as the Abbey Gate girls... read more
