Year 5/6 Girls

IPSSA Girls football league

Tuesday 8th May 2018 Whitehouse v Claydon

This was our first league game of the season.

We started brightly with Lois having an early shot on goal and shortly afterwards Ella saw her shot go wide.  However, we kept up the pressure and were rewarded when Lois scored in the third minute.  Whitehouse goalkeeper made a great save which rebounded and we saw our shot go over the bar.  We responded well to their attacking play, staying strong in defence with Caitlin, Freya and Sophie displaying some strong tackling.  Lois scored again in the 15th minute just before half time.

Second half saw Whitehouse display some strong attacking play, resulting in a goal.  However, we were quick to respond with Lois completing her hat trick a couple of minutes later.  Courtney, Nicole and Ellie continue to move the ball around in midfield with some good forward passing resulting in a goal from Ella in the 12th minute.  Jess pulled off a great save with only 5 minutes remaining.

Thanks to all the parents for their great support.

IPSSA U11 Girls Football Tournament

Thursday 19th October 2017


We took a squad of 9 girls to the tournament at Whitton Sports Centre.

We played 5 games, 8 minutes one way, throughout the afternoon.  We won our first game, then continued with 2 draws and 2 losses.  This saw us finish mid table.

Our best game was the fourth game when we passed and created space well.  However, Jess was amazing in goal, continuing on from last year.  Freya was our only year 5 and was solid in defence and gained confidence throughout the tournament, making some forward runs into space, then retreating back to defence.  Some of the girls played in different positions which we will continue to explore in training.  The tournament enabled us to think about our focus for training and the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Thank you to the parents for the lifts and their great support!
