Purbeck Cup 2018/19

Purbeck Cup

Bovington v’s Sandford 9/5/19


The final score was 6 – 7 to Sandford for the next round of the Purbeck Cup football Tournament last night. Bovington played amazingly as a team, supporting and encouraging each other. It was such a close match with some extremely near misses.  Very impressive goal keeping from Leo, Callum and Samuela. A huge thanks to Ryan Humphries for refereeing.

Goals scored by Leo, Jaq, Caeden, Harrison and two for Callum. Well done boys!

Nine Primary Schools have entered. These have been organised into two Groups on a geographical basis to minimise travelling. The Groups are: 


Group 1 

Stoborough, St George's Langton, Swanage Primary and Swanage St Mary's (A and B). 


Group 2 

Bere Regis, Bovington, Sandford, Wareham St Mary and Wool Primary. 


In Group 1, Swanage St Mary’s offered to enter two teams to make up a shortfall in numbers in that Group. In addition to providing an extra game for the other Schools in the Group, this has simplified the organisation of the competition. The two St Marys teams will be kept entirely separate and should the two teams finish first and second in the Group, the second team will withdraw. The other Schools in the Group have been asked to approve this; no objections have been received. 


Each School will play every other School in its Group, resulting in four Group matches for each School. The top two Schools from each Group will go into a knock-out phase at the end of the Spring Term or in the Summer Term (avoiding SATs). The Groups will be decided as follows: points won, goal difference, goals scored. In the event that two Schools are still tied on goals scored, progression to the knock-out phase will be on the basis of the result between them.
