Emerging Girls Football Tournament
On Friday 7th October, our girls’ football team played in the Southend Primary School Sports Association Emerging Girls Football Tournament at Len Forge. They played ten competitive matches across the day.
The morning began with five matches lasting ten minutes one way. The first match was a tough battle between both teams, with the teams getting used to the pitch surface and warming up into the game, the girls put in strong defending and were unfortunate to end the first game with a loss. The team found their rhythm to go on and win the next two matches. The fourth game was very close but the team was unfortunate to concede a goal. The final game of the morning they found their confidence again and went on to get another win.
West Leigh 0-1 St. Marys
West Leigh 4-0 Friars
West Leigh 2-1 Earls Hall
West Leigh 0-1 Allen Court
