It was another great sporting week, with a first for the school, as well as a lot of pupils!
Pencoed Comp welcomed Ysgol Bro Morgannwg for our Yr7 teams’ inaugural matches – including fielding our first ever boys team! Both boys and girls displayed excellent skills and awareness, and Miss Nicholas is looking forward to seeing both teams develop as the year continues!
Our Yr8 and Yr9 boys football teams were in action, in the second round of the Welsh Schools FA competition. Both faced competitive teams from CCYD, and demonstrated excellent sportsmanship. Despite some impressive goals from Pencoed, CCYD clinched the win in both games.
Finally, Yr7 showed that the future of rugby is in safe hands at Pencoed! In their first match the team played visitors CCYD, and stormed to victory. From fancy footwork to crunching tackles, these players have a LOT of potential. We can’t wait to see how they develop over the next 5 years!
This week looks to be just as action packed, with our Yr10 boys and U15 girls football teams playing away to Olchfa and Dwr Y Felin, and Yr7 and Senior rugby teams take a trip to Bryntirion – who then pay us a visit to play our Yr9 and Yr10 netballers.
