Girls Football League - End of Season
With the Girls Football League at Goals coming to an end, I’d like to say a huge well done to everyone that has taken part in this seasons Football. I’ve seen vast improvements in how the girls play, individually and as a team, throughout the past few months.
On Monday 23rd April the girls played their most recent league games against Sherwood Park and Upton Primary. The squad consisted of; Beth Wood (GK), Maddison Henderson (C), Jasreen Ghag, Alba Hernandez, Hannah Lasoye, Yasemi Salami and Bailey Berry. These matches showcased their progress as a team, within the first few minutes it was clear to see our after school club training had paid off. Each of the girls played excellently, with a final score of 9-0 to Danson, our top scorers included Maddison, Alba and Jasreen.
On the other hand, our second match was a lot tougher. We had to really increase our standard of play, along with Beth making some superb saves and our forwards causing some problems for Upton’s defence, we secured a 1-1 draw.
It has been amazing to see the growth of the girls’ team, not just in the way they play but with their understanding of the game as well. Even though the team as a whole has performed well, the Player of the Season award went to Hannah Lasoye for her great determination and strength that she showed throughout every game we played. Well done Hannah!
