All of the girls had a fantastic trip to the sports fields at the National Physical Laboratory (in Bushy Park) to play three football matches against Jack & Jill. The girls were extremely well motivated and played with great heart and enthusiasm.
It is fair to say that we dominated most of the matches, being able to win possession with some timely tackles and create many chances with fast breaks.
We were unable to convert the possession into goals in the first match, which ended as a 0-0 draw. The second match was a 1 – 0 loss due to a moment of brilliance from their best player. I would add that they could have scored many more goals in that match if it hadn’t been for the outstanding goal keeping from Manhar. She was alert and brave and stopped many shots.
Our team steadily improved throughout the three matches and during the final game confidence was high. We scored two great goals, expertly slotted away by Safiyyah and Anjali. It was a good feeling to win the match 2 – 0.
Well done girls, it was a pleasure to see you playing with such fun. Special thanks go to Mrs Azhar and Mr Mukadam who volunteered their help on the trip, and to all the parents who drove over to Bushy Park to spectate. It was great to see you there.
Mr Wood, Head of Games
