''I HAVE CONFIDENCE AND CONFIDENCE IN ME'' - Our Team Chant
On Friday 24th Year 5 girls took part in a Football Cluster Competition at Lawdale. Although we were due to play earlier on in the term, (we had to postpone to a later date because of bad weather on original date) we used the extra time we had to practice and become even stronger as a team.
Hosted by Marc at Lawdale the teams we were playing against were Lawdale A and B Team and St. Mattias A and B team. There were 6 teams altogether as Virginia also had two teams.
After some excellent play from all teams Virginia A came out top of there games alongside St,Matthias from Group 2.
It was a very tense final which went down to penalties. Labibah was an excellent goalie and out of 5/6 games only one goal was conceded. In the final she managed to save the last penalty meaning that we will be attending the Borough Finals in March.
I am not only impressed with the result but I am very happy with how the girls have developed socially and the impact this has had on their relationship with each-other. They play so well as a team and frequently support and encourage each-other to be the best they can be. A special mention to Bushra and Nura who have completely stepped out of their comfort zones. Due to this surge in confidence both girls performed so well at the cluster competition with Bushra scoring a goal and Nura taking a fabulous penalty.
Well done girls I am so proud of you all. I look forward to the borough finals.
