Year 11 v The Rest of the School

Posted by on May 22, 2015 in News | No Comments

On Thursday 30th April the U16 Girls’ Football County Champions team from came together for one last time before their GCSE examinations and the end of Year 11.  Determined to mark their incredible success story in a fitting and memorable way, P.E. teachers Mrs Gue and Mr Budd organised a Testimonial match on the school’s All Weather Pitch, which saw the U16s playing a team comprising skilled girl footballers from the rest of the school.

The match was played in the same excellent sporting manner that had characterised the U16’s previous matches and was definitely a contributory factor in them becoming county champions in 2014.

The final score was 4-0 to the U16s, but the real winner was girls’ football at  As coach Mrs Gue said in her message to the team in the souvenir programme:

“Every one of you has been a pleasure to coach and drive around the country!  You have come so far as a team and you will always have your incredibly strong bond with each other.  You are a great group of girls with so many qualities and I would like to thank you for all that you have done for girls’ football within our school.  You will be missed; however, you should feel honoured that it all started with you.’

After the match both teams were served a special celebratory tea by Mrs Bryce, Headteacher, in the school’s dotnet café – a real treat!
