March 2024:

Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Horsford.

Our furthest 'away' fixture got off to a quick start with a goal from Horsford, before Bignold quickly levelled.

Bignold followed up with a quick chip to make it 2, but Horsford doubled down and buried an equaliser just before half time. Both teams came out strong in the 2nd half, with a real battle in midfield. A beautiful strike made it 3-2 to Bignold into the final minutes. A charge from Horsford and a retaken penalty - which found the back of the net - brought it to 3-all.

The final wistle blew just 90 seconds later, earning a hard fought draw at 3-3.


February 2024:

Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Old Catton.

A succession of quick goals in the 1st half saw the visitors quuckly take (and build) the lead. With some new players in the Bignold squad for this game the dynamic was always going to be a little different, but these children were keen to give their best and the team began to work well in the 2nd half. 

Final score: 4-1 to Old Catton


January 2024:

Community Sport Foundation's Primary Football League @ The Nest

10 of Bignold's best footballers attended the competition, placing in League 1.

Across the 3 games in the afternoon, Bignold recorded results of 1-1 (draw), 3-1 (loss) and 4-0 (win).

Well played all!


November 2023:

Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Avenue Jnr.

The best game of the season so far for Bignold, with the entire team excelling as a unit. 

Honourable mention to Ahmad, to seemed to be able to be in 2 places at once for most of the 2nd half!

Final score: 3-2 to Avenue Jnr.


October 2023:

Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Colman Jnr.

Another tough game for Bignold, this time away at Colman Jnr school. 

Bignold found playing on a sloping pitch a new challenge, but rose to this well.

Final score: 8-2 to Colman Jnr.


Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Queen's Hill.

A well played home game for Bignold, who welcomed some new players into the squad. 

Final score: 6-3 to Queen's Hill.


September 2023:

Norwich Primary Schools Football Association fixture v Poringland.

This was a tough home game for us, as a new team coming up against an experienced Poringland side. Nevertheless, Bignold's players dug deep and there were some excellent passages of play.

Final score: 9-1 to Poringland


July 2023:
