Y5/6 Girls' Football team 2016-17

26 June 2017

Our Y6 Girls Football team did amazing at the tournament; we won all but one of our group games and qualified for the knockout stages. Although we lost in the last 16, we only just lost to the team who won the league this year – we even took the lead and gave them the shock of their lives! We’ve done so well and to finish in the top 16 teams, out of the 80 teams that were there was fantastic!

We’ve also played really well in the league, and finished in the top four out of 27 teams throughout Leeds. By finishing in the top four teams in Leeds, it meant we qualified for the finals day and this was already a fantastic achievement!

Although we narrowly lost both our games at the finals 2-0, we worked as a team and fought hard for each other. On another day, with a bit more luck, we could have won. Even though we didn’t finish first, to finish in the top four out of all the girls’ teams in Leeds was incredible. We’ve been working hard over the last two years to achieve this and it was all worth it!
