GIRLS COMPETE IN FIRST EVER FORGE TRUST FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

03.12.2018

On Monday 3rd December we played a girls football tournament at the Forest Sports zone in Nottingham.

We had 9 players in our squad, they were Isabella, Lily, Charlotte, Isobel, Jessica G, Jessica M, Lana, Freya, Ella. 

We travelled to the tournament in Mr Green and Mr Darby’s car, everyone  was feeling confident before they got to the tournament as we have had a really good season so far.

The tournament started at 10am and during the games we had lots of different types of weather as it was windy, rainy and sunny. It did rain really heavily just before lunch but we still carried on playing, nobody minded getting wet.

As a school we played 3 games, here are the results:

Game 1 – West Park 2 Python Hill 0 (goals scored by Jessica G, Jessica M)

Game 2 – West Park 0 Sir Donald Bailey 1

Game 3 – West Park 3 Parkgate 2

All the players tried their very best and joined in for every game, I would like to give the following 2 players a mention for playing really well:

Jessica G was very good at her defending

Isabella was good at her throw-ins

As a journalist and a player that played in the tournament I can add that before the event I felt scared but after we had finished I felt happy

Today’s tournament was the first of 3 rounds, we were pleased to have won 2 of our games and be second in the league out of 4 teams
