  • One team, two matches

    Published 26/11/19

    Pilgrims' Parents v Western School Parents 2-5
    The new fixture on the list this season posed an unknown quantity. Alarm bells should have rung when prior to the match the opposition stated they practise twice a week.

    The match started well for Pilgrims' with an early lead via an Alex Gulliford header from a corner. Western’s preparation started to show and their short passing game had Pilgrims' chasing the ball in midfield. Two goals were conceded in the first half. The second half was a similar affair, Pilgrims' struggled to string passes together and create chances. Three further goals were conceded before an excellent consolation goal from Maxim Crewe. A humorous moment was a rugby tackle from David Hartwright on the Western captain; David harking back to his rugby roots was made all the more amusing when their captain confessed that he had undergone surgery under David’s care a few months before!

  • Shipshape Cubs

    Published 21/11/19

    I'm almost tempted to deliver this write-up as before and after images...Picture one: Cubs lolling on the floor, hidden behind taller boys, out of shot and generally looking less than shipshape. Picture two: perfect salutes, all 18 faces visible, and straight backs. Welcome to the world of the professional leader.

  • Survival science

    Published 21/11/19

    In order to gain their science badge, Scouts must explore and discuss the science behind scouting activities. This week we were extremely fortunate to have Sally Walmsley leading our session and this is the challenge she gave the boys: "You’re in the middle of a once-in-a-lifetime sailing trip around the world. As you pass the tropics, you plough into a pile of floating debris. A large log smashes into your hull and your yacht quickly sinks. Luckily for you, you’re a great swimmer, and you can see a small island on the horizon. Unluckily for you, it is uninhabited. Your challenge is to stay alive until help arrives."
