“Girl’s Football team victorious!”

We have to say a MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS to the girl’s football

team who went to a tournament at the Wandle recreation ground just 

before the holiday. The girls scored three goals in their first match and 

that set the scene for the day. They got through their group round, into 

the quarters, the semi-final and ultimately into the final itself which they 

narrowly missed out on winning against Honeywell. Coming second out of 

thirty schools really was a fabulous achievement, wearing their school 

football kit with pride. Lianne kept me posted throughout the day with her 

texts and we couldn’t have been more proud. 

Well done Frances, Lasharna, Abrianna, Madison, Shamarni and Leanne, (a

special mention to Frances and Leanne who gave up a day trip with their 

classes in order to attend: as Leanne said “My team needs me” which is an 

indication of their team spirit.) Another special mention to Shamarni who 

won the trophy for “Goalkeeper of the tournament”. Thank you so much to 

Lianne and Mr Bowman for all their coaching skills and also to Nyikki for 

accompanying the children on the day. Go Team JB! 
