Mr Lawrence brings us this report from a rather wintry day at Manchester City’s Girls’ football league earlier this month – our girls are tough, a bit of cold and rain won’t stop them..
We went to Manchester City on Wednesday 16th – the weather wasn’t the best but to their credit the girls carried on and didn’t let it bother them..
We had some new players join our team from Hollinwood Academy, Summer and Sophie, who proved to be excellent additions! Both our teams played well..
Our record was 5 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws..
Summer was excellent in defence, reminiscent of a young Des Walker!!! We overcame some tough refereeing decisions but the girls dealt with these by scoring and winning games..
All the girls showed excellent sportsmanship including shaking hands at the end of matches and they behaved exceptionally well, showing fantastic team support and encouragement..
A big thank you to all the staff who supported – Miss Wright, Miss Ninian and Mrs Meadows…..who looked like she might have landed a new job working for Man City as you can see..
Once again, a big thanks to Paul Kelly and Man City for another brilliant day!!
