Year 5/6 Girls Football, by Miss Jones

Date: 13th Nov 2016 @ 8:29pm

Friday 11th November  - Danny Jones Football Tournament at Christleton High School

Well done to the year 5 and 6 girls who represented the school at the Danny Jones Football Tournament at Christleton High School.

The girls got off to a great start, winning 3 matches and drawing 1 during the group stage. They won their group which saw them progress through to the semi-finals!

With a score of 0-0 at full time, the girls faced a nail-biting penalty shoot out.  Fabulous goal keeping by Katie saw the girls win on penalties, seeing them through to the final against Saughall!

Yet again, after some fantastic football, the score was 0-0 at full time. Miss Jones could barely look as we faced more nail-biting penalties. More expert goal keeping and goal scoring saw Oldfield WIN the final on penalties! Every player received a medal and the team received a trophy. 

The girls showed brilliant skill, determination and sportsmanship and really were a credit to the school. They should be very proud of themselves; I know I am! 

Well done Ruby W, Katie G, Katie N, Abbie (captain), Kimberley, Poppy, Sarah, Ruby P, Eva and Amelie.
