Girls’ Football Team – May 2015

What a busy, exciting time we have had recently!

On Saturday 2nd May the girls were involved in the Rushcliffe Primary Schools Football Tournament at Ruddington St. Peter’s School. 24 teams were divided into 4 groups of 6, with our girls coming a remarkable 2nd in our group. The winners of our group were West Bridgford Junior School who are presently the Rushcliffe champions, so the fact that it all came down to the match between us to see who went through to the semi-finals shows how well we performed. It was a super experience, with great support from the parents, great commitment and enthusiasm by the girls and a very excited and proud coach! Helen, Millie-anne, Lauren-Mae, Erin, Jasmine, Sophie and Millie represented our school brilliantly. Thankyou girls!

 Wednesday 6th May found 8 girls from classes 4 and 5 at a wonderful football festival at Nottingham Trent University, hosted by the Notts County Schools Football Association. The afternoon session was split into initially a round robin of indoor football activities and then a mini 5 a side tournament outside. Inside the girls tried a whole range of new skills, such as goalkeeping, refereeing, speed shots, freestyle, a speed cage and even hair-braiding! We were also very lucky to meet players from Notts County Ladies F C. Outside we had some good results against 4 teams played in a wonderful spirit. It was a super afternoon and one that we hope is going to be repeated.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement, we then followed it up with a trip to Meadow Lane to watch Notts County Ladies play Liverpool Ladies on Sunday May 10th. A record attendance for the ladies of over 2000 (helped by 16 of us!)  and a 1-0 win meant that we all came away having had a great afternoon. It was great for the girls to see how well the ladies teams performed and how well supported they were. Jo’s crusade to get us all supporting Notts County is taking shape!

And finally! Burton Joyce girls football team played their first match against Cropwell Bishop Primary School. A fast flowing match resulted in a ‘goal fest’ where the final score was 9 – 6 to Cropwell Bishop. There would have been even more goals save for the skill and bravery of the goalkeepers. The crowd warmly applauded and cheered both teams for an entertaining match that was played in the best spirit of the game. After the fire of competition new friends were made and return game is planned for soon.  Isabelle, Isabella. Madelynn, Grace, Emily, Chloe and Helen were great ambassadors for our school.
