The U14 girl’s football team, made up of yr 7, 8 & 9 girls braved the wind on the astro pitches at St Damiens over the last three weeks of last half term. They played a number of schools from the Tameside area as the hard work they have put in in training, working on communicating well and marking players, paid off and they beat Copley 5-0 and Longendale 1-0 in the last week of matches before the October half term. These matches saw the girls win their first trophy of the season! They played excellently and worked together well as a team, improving over each week. Our star played was Ellie Richardson from yr 7 who scored three goals in the last week of matches. Miss Sanderson and Miss Barratt would like to say a huge well done to all the girls who played, as we are very proud of them!!
Next up this term are our U12 matches with a team made up of year 7’s. If you are a girl and would like to get involved come along to the sport’s hall after school on a Thursday with your sports kit, no prior experience is required but enthusiasm is!
