FA National Girls Football Week – KS2 Tournament

On Thursday 9th November, the Girls Football Team took part in a tournament at Pool Foot Farm in Thornton. This was an FA national campaign to celebrate female football at all levels from grassroots to schools.

Our first game was against Thornton Primary. We won this game 2 – 0, with goals from Alex Cottam and Carley Oakley. The second game was against Carelton St Hildas Primary, which we won 1-0. The goal came from Jade Thornley. Our third game was against Ansdell Primary, which we drew 0-0. The final game of the qualifying group was against Ribby with Wrea Primary. This was an incredibly close game which we lost 1-0.

Every team had their points calculated and the point table for our league showed that we had qualified for the semi-final stages. We played the semi-final against Shakespeare, which we lost. Shakespeare went on to win the competition.

Well done to all of the girls involved. Everyone played with great determination and made Chaucer proud.
