Saturday 30th March 2019

The sun was beaming on a glorious spring morning down at Chadderton Hall Park fields, with crowds flocking in their numbers to show support for the reigning cross-country champions of Oldham.

The day got off to a fantastic start with our y1/2 runners bursting round the course with great power, energy and determination. 

We look forward to the new athletes filtering through into the juniors next year, a promising future!

It has been a long tough year of intense training and racing, battling through some of the toughest weather conditions in recent years. However we are proud to announce that after todays final race of the year, Thornham St. James has again been crowned Oldham Schools Cross-Country Champions 2019!!

Friday 8th March

We have won the parish cup!

It went down to the wire though. At full time it was 1-1, so we went into extra time. 
After 10 more minutes it was still 1-1 so it was down to penalties.

No pressure on the goalkeeper!!

After 5 penalties each it was 4-4.

Down to sudden death............We WON!!!!

What a fantastic game!

Come on Thornham!


Saturday 16th March

We have the opportunity to play on the pitch at Oldham Athletic. 

All the children that attend the football training on a Monday night have the chance to come and play at half time on the pitch against each other under the watchful eyes of Miss Millington!

This is a great opportunity for the children to watch a professional football match and to play on a real pitch. Lets enjoy ourselves!!
