Girls Emerging Football Tournament
On Friday 8th October, eight members of 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 the group stage, five matches lasting eight minutes one way. The first match was a tough battel between both teams, with the teams getting used to the pitch surface and warming up into the game resulting in a draw. The team then went on to win the next four games to become winners of their group.
West Leigh 0-0 Our Lady of Lourdes
West Leigh 5-0 Earls Hall
West Leigh 2-1 Leigh North Street
West Leigh 2-0 Friars

After lunch the team had another five competitive games to play. The girls’ continued to play great attacking football and demonstrated great teamwork throughout every match, winning all five of their games.

The girls’ did a fantastic job finishing top of the group and earning a place at the girls’ football tournament on Friday 15th October. The whole team put in an incredible performance throughout the day with superb sportsmanship and behaviour and should feel confident when approaching the next tournament.
