Our two school football teams kicked off their seasons this week. Both teams represented our school brilliantly and we’re looking forward to the games ahead.
This month saw the conclusion of both the boys’ and girls’ football leagues. Both teams have represented our school brilliantly and have demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout the league games. We are very proud of our strong finishing positions in both leagues and hope to build on our successes next season. Well done to everyone who has participated.
On Wednesday 8th March we celebrated the biggest girls’ football event by inviting all of the KS2 girls to a football training session. It was great to see some new faces come along to training and want to get involved in the sport. Well done girls!
Some of our fantastic footballers represented Marsden at a girls’ football festival at Kepier Academy in Houghton Le Spring. It was the girls first ever tournament and having only trained together for a few months, there were lots of nerves! The girls represented our school magnificently and thoroughly enjoyed themselves which is exactly what we wanted! A big thank you to Miss Lines, our fantastic coach, for all her help and encouragement. Well done girls!
On Thursday 27th September the girls football team took part in a tournament at Boldon School.
Here is the match report:
Y6: Alania, Georgie, Ruby, Aleyna and Erin
Y5: Daisy, Lyra, Autumn
First we played Harton A; unfortunately we lost 1:0. We were very unlucky to lose this match but we played our best and that is all you can do. Daisy actually scored but this goal did not count as the referee didn’t see it and Alania was very close to make it an equaliser!
The second match against St Oswald’s Hebburn saw Daisy take the first goal, with the ball smashing off the goal post and being reflected in by the other team. Great defending and goal keeping by our team, kept a clean sheet and Daisy kicked home another two goals, earning a hat trick on her first play for the Marsden team. We all agreed she should get Player of the Match for this round of the tournament…Well Done Daisy!
Everyone had a great afternoon, enjoyed the game and being part of the team. We can’t wait until the next round in Novemeber.
Many thanks to you all who have supported Our Team so far this season. The league is suspended for the winter break with the final two matchdays scheduled to take place as planned:
- Tuesday 6th March (3:45-5:30pm)
