Social media, mental health and wellbeing.

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on social media and young people’s mental health and wellbeing has published a report. Findings include: social media can have a range of positive effects, but children who spend time on social networking sites are more likely to have symptoms of mental ill health than those who do not; and social media is seen by many young people as having a negative impact on their self esteem. Recommendations include: establish a duty of care on social media companies with registered UK users aged 24 and under; create a Social Media Health Alliance to fund research, educational initiatives and establish clearer guidance for the public; review whether the ‘addictive’ nature of social media is sufficient for official disease classification; and commission longitudinal research into understanding the impact of social media on young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Match Report 21/3/2019 The match ended 5-0: an excellent result!

Our boys’ football team played another KMC League match today at Heron Eccles. After a long drive, the boys were eager to get started at attempt to win their 5th league game in a row! There was a delay with the start of the game as the referee was delayed, so Mr. Fairclough took the whistle and left Miss Harland in the manager’s role…

The boys made a quick start that was rewarded within seconds as Dan Smith was brought down inside the box and a penalty was awarded! Lennon “The Sniper” Williams (named for being deadly at long range) proved that he could also finish from the spot as he slid his penalty into the bottom right corner for 1-0!

OLI continued to press on, with attackers Lucas, Jack, Adam, Dan, Luke and Gradi all combining really well as they were brought on and off the pitch as substitutes. Shortly after, a goal of the season contender was ripped in from 20 yards out. Gradi was under pressure from defenders and produced a curling effort whilst falling over that found the top corner for a truly stunning goal! It was 2-0, but not for long. Jack Traynor’s one-on-one chance produced a third goal and the boys went into the second half 3-0 up.

The boys had won their last 4 games, but were yet to keep a clean sheet this season. With that in mind, defenders Jonny, Tom, Oscar and JP dug in brilliantly to assist keeper Ayman, who himself was having a great game, saving a one-on-one chance with his fingertips.

Adam Gallagher got a slight touch on a cross and found the bottom corner to score his 3rd goal of the season and OLI’s 4th of the game. With minutes remaining in the game, Jack Traynor scored his second goal of the game with a wonderful curling effort from the edge of the box. The match ended 5-0: an excellent result!

Many thanks to KMC Sports again, as well as Carleton House for fielding a young, energetic team with lots of promise and excellent sportsmanship.
