Girls Football 2017-18
GIRLS FOOTBALL 2017-2018
It has been a busy year for girls’ football, with the U12’s, U13’s, U14’s and U16’s all competing and progressing through the Leeds Schools and English Schools Cups!
The under 12’s have had an amazing first year playing football together. They’ve developed as a team and seen some high scoring games (their highest being 9-0) and a lot of clean sheets thanks to their hard-working defence and goal keeper Charlotte! The girls have shown commitment by travelling all the way to Bridlington for a game and competed in the West Yorkshire Semi-final. Their most recent achievement has seen the team reach the final of the Leeds Schools Cup where they will be playing Cardinal Heenan on the 10th May! Good luck girls, go smash it!
This year, the U13 girls aimed to build upon their successes in year 7 and competed in the English Schools Cup. The girls came up against some tough competition but managed to progress through to the 4th round of the cup with some great goals from Evie, Tyesesha, Abby and year 7 Amalia! Their 4thround fixture was a close game and saw the girls battling against tough conditions of rain and snow, but each girl showed great resilience and they only narrowly missed out on progressing to the next round. Keep up the hard work girls, and bring on the U14 season!
The U14 girls’ football team has been extra busy this year with the team travelling to Durham for the 5th round and competing amongst the top 32 schools of the English Schools Cup. The girls started their ESFA cup run strong with scores of 14-0, 6-1 and 6-1 in the first 3 rounds and proved they weretough competition! They then had close games in their round 4 (winning 3-2) and round 5 fixture where they narrowly missed out on progressing further with a score of 3-2. However, the girls have continued to work hard together as a team and are to play in the semi-final of the Leeds Schools Cup on 30th May against Morley. We’re looking forward to the next fixture and are confident that the team can reach the final!
The U16 girls’ team saw tough competition in the first round of the ESFA where they played against a very strong Ralph Thoresby team. However, the girls progressed and reached the semi-final of the Leeds Schools Cup this year in which they narrowly missed out reaching the final - and Ruby was inches away from scoring on her football debut! Well done to the girls this year and a big thank you to the year 11 girls who have played throughout their time at Roundhay!
Overall, it’s been an exciting year for our girls and hopefully we can replicate such success next year!
