Girls’ Football Tournament – Friday 10th June, 2016
On Friday 10th June, 2016, Batchwood Girls’ football team, went along to Heathlands School, to take part in the annual girls’ tournament.
It was a great experience - some of the girls had taken part in previous tournaments but it was the first time for Sasha from year 7 and Mekyla in year 10. We played against three other schools and although we don’t play regularly as a team, the girls all demonstrated great team work, positive attitudes and a real desire to win. The team were very well organised and good at giving each other instructions on where they should be on the pitch. Maxine, Courtney and Shannah took it in turns to be in goal and all did a fantastic job. Monique, Sasha and Becky worked equally as hard, marking their opponents and passing the ball. Becky and Maxine were our joint players of the match, due to their high work rate and excellent attitude.
Batchwood were quite evenly matched against Pinewoods School but Heathlands proved to be very good opponents and the tournament was won overall by Heathlands.
