Last Thursday saw our Y5/6 girls football team taking part in the Merseyside regional final of the national primary school girls football competition. They had done fantastically well to qualify for the competition and this was bound to be a step up in ability. The first match went to plan and some solid defending and goalkeeping, followed by a goal from Mia led to a victory. The second match was against a very strong Malvern team, whose star player was also the star player for their boys' team ! Melling were always in the game, but in the end Malvern won with two late goals. The final game was dominated by Melling, but they couldn't quite get the victory they deserved and it finished 0-0. The girls had to settle for an excellent 2nd place and medals to take home ! A brilliant effort and yet again we are really proud of the way you competed and played as a team against some very good opponents. Fantastic !
Congratulations to our Y5/6 girls' football team who won the Maghull and District Girls Football tournament last week. Our older team won 4 out of 4 matches that they played, including beating St. George's 11-0 and St. John Bosco 5-0! A very well-deserved victory!
Also, special mention must go to our Y3/4 team who beat Green Park's Y6 team to get to the semi-final. Unfortunately they then came up against our older team in that match, and although they lost, they did have the honour of being the only team to score against them ! Well done Lucy !
Some very happy parents were there to spectate! Well done, girls-your determination, skill and team work make us very proud. They now go on to represent Maghull and District in the regional stages of the English Schools Football Association national tournament ! Good luck girls !
