SSp Football 2019
The boys met with a very strong Ashbourne team and unfortunately I think their exertion at Rugby may have had an impact on the final score. We weren’t without chances, but we were just not meant to win that trophy!
The girls had a convincing win in their first game. Anybody watching would never believe that it was the first time some of the girls had ever played a competitive game of football.
Maisie was outstanding as keeper. Rose, Eva and Luisa kept the team together with Luisa scoring most of the goals! Lily, Naomi, Autumn and Polly all put in incredible debut performances. However, stand out player for me was Lyla, She battled hard in midfield, getting back to help in defence and knocking the ball forward. Then in the dying seconds of the final she was unstoppable, she took the ball all the way down the pitch and scored the goal that got us through to County finals – the keeper had no chance!
What an incredible afternoon of highs and lows and heart pounding moments on the side lines.
Boys, there is always Bunting Cup! Girls you need to keep your heads and look forward to your next round!
As always, I am very proud of you all.
