Our football players have provided a Tournament Report:
"On the 7th February 2019 nine girls from Brabyns went to Manchester United’s Training Ground ‘The Cliff’ for a football tournament. When we arrived we had our photo taken outside the ground, and we were all very excited.
We then did a warm up to make sure we were game ready for the matches. We started off with practising penalties against our two goalies ES and LJ, followed by a dribbling exercise (with a ball and not dribbling from our mouths…!) then we did our cheerleading routine (Click here to view) before the matches started.
The first game was a 1-1 draw. Coming from 1-0 down, we were very happy with this result. DB and BF really got stuck in to the match with ES doing really well in goal. AS scored our goal.
The next match was quite tough because the opposition were very good but we had great teamwork and went on to win 1-0 with a goal by AS in the last minute and some great saves by LJ.
BF, IT and LD were fantastic in defence with ES in goal in our next match drawing 0-0 .
The following match we won 1-0 with SC and FAB making some great team passes. AS scored our goal and DB did some great turns and tackles.
We then had a 0-0 draw. Everyone played really well and it was a very tough match. FAB had 3 valiant attempts at scoring and was so close.
The last match was the hardest yet and we lost 4-0, but again everyone got stuck in and worked well as a team. We were all tired from the other matches.
So very well done to everyone who played. We came so close to scoring many times and if it wasn't for some some great goalkeeping from the other teams in we might have made the final, but we were very proud to finish 3rd.
Thank you Mr Sanders and Brabyns for such a wonderful opportunity."
