Y7 and Y8 Girls’ Football Update

The Year 7 and 8 girls’ football team have been working extremely hard in training every Friday since the start of the school year to develop their skills and fitness levels in football. Their commitment and attitude to the sessions has been exceptional and it has been a real pleasure coaching and managing the girls.
They have had some difficult fixtures, but have carried themselves with dignity and shown the character traits that we embed into our pupils every single day. In the recent game against Gateacre, the Year 7 team showed great teamwork and battled through to the end, with Phoebe H (Howson’s) producing some fine saves and Maisie-Merle H (Howard’s) coming very close on a few occasions to score from close range. Even though they lost, there were a lot of positives to take away from the game.
With the continued effort and commitment to training, we are confident that the results will come in the second half of the season. We would like to wish the girls a massive good luck for the rest of the season, with many football tournaments and fixtures already in the diary - keep up the good work girls!
