As a result of attending the extra curricular football club since September, Year 7 and 8 girls have attended a round robin tournament each Tuesday during the past four weeks.
The tournament gave the girls the chance to play against a number of schools from across the borough on outstanding 3G pitches at Our Lady and St Chad’s Catholic Academy.
Despite this being the first time that many of these girls had played football in a competitive environment, their enthusiasm and effort for each match was fantastic to see. The improvement from the girls as a team and individually each week was also clear to see as results and performances improved with each game they played.
After the four weeks had finished the girls managed 2 wins, 6 draws and 6 defeats from the 14 games played, with Becky Palmer and Jess Hodgkiss scoring the team’s goals. Each girl was a credit to Smestow School, not just for how well they played and worked for each other but also for their exemplary conduct at the venue.
Well Done Girls!!!!
