Stanton Bridge Primary School


Stanton Bridge Football Team has been making significant progress in their football development. The players including the manager have a philosophy of ‘attitude over ability’ which sits well within our school's ethos and culture and our vision for creating socially adept individuals. With this in mind the young players attend games with positive attitudes and great team spirit.

We have been taking part in increasingly more competitions and last year was an excellent year for Stanton Bridge. The football team brought home trophies from winning a competition organised by Sports 4 All. The head teacher and the rest of the school were delighted with the result and the school team earned themselves an amazing day out with all inclusive treats.

The team show great sportsmanship on and off the pitch, and demonstrate great determination, perseverance and resilience during training sessions. The team has come a long way and are 'one' that all can be exceptionally proud of!


This year in the football after school clubs we will be working on various skills and techniques. The most important thing with all the year groups is ball mastery and getting comfortable with the ball. Using various ball mastery skills we will develop the child's confidence and on the ball. In year 3 and 4 they will start to learn about positioning and tactics however still the main focus will be on being in control of the ball. In year 5 and 6 they will learn about formations and tactics to prepare them for matches and tournaments against other schools. This year we will aim to have a girls football team and prepare them to play against other schools.


Update spring 2019

On Thursday 28th March Stanton Bridge Football Team went up against St Lawrence's CofE Primary School. 
The team played some excellent football and displayed brilliant sportsmanship. The players tried their hardest when out of possession and in possession they displayed some real quality and attacking flair. All the hard work in training paid off, with players being disciplined and remembering what they had learnt.
The game finished 5-1 to Stanton Bridge with Success scoring a hat trick and Charlie and Imad getting a goal apiece. Man of the Match went to Success who had a hand in all the goals. Well done!
A big thank you to all the parents and teachers who came to support.

Update spring 2018

On Wednesday 21st March, the Stanton Bridge football team played exceptionally well and beat Broad Heath by 5-1. 

They showcased excellent sportsmanship and football skills. The team worked really hard and showed desire to recover the ball and win every challenge even when leading comfortably.

There were some outstanding individual performances from Charlie, Mikayel, and Success.

The decision making from goalkeeper and defenders was very impressive- When to pass, when to clear ball away. Goalscorers were Success, Mikayal x2, Mousa and Charlie. 

Thank you for the parents and carers who came and supported the team.


Update spring 2017

The new boy’s football team have been working really hard every Thursday after school in Football training with our new coach Mr Mohammed. They have impressed the coaches in training with their dedication, enthusiasm and skill which made it really hard for the coach on who to pick for every game. They have been training for 6 weeks now and have had two matches since they started as a team. The first game was against Broad Heath. For this game, the team did really well however they only had two sessions of training before this game and so for this reason the team lost 4-2.

The second game was also against Broad Heath again however it was their B team. This time our team focused on what was needed to improve. This time the team were students who did not previously play in the first match apart from one or two. We are very excited to announce we won our second game 3-2!  

Our third match was against Stoke Heath who are a professional school football team. This was a good test match to see what the team really need to work on to be the best school football team in Coventry aswell as further field. During this game Stanton Bridge had some really good chances however did lose due to the fact Stoke Heath have had more experience with academy clubs and just had more club chemistry. This was a great way however to see how much we have improved and what we can do to win the matches in the summer. 


Update spring 2016

The afterschool football programme is developing really well and we are seeing some significant improvements across the school. Everybody has been working really hard both in school and out of school.

We have recently had our first pupil sign for a team (Mikayal) and he is playing every week and performing very well; scoring a couple of goals since signing. We are hoping to have a couple of matches arranged soon for the school so will keep you posted regarding this.
