Year 8 Girls Football team - Essex Cup V Stanway - Preliminary round
Results: TTC 9 Stanway 0
A fantastic team performance. Great goals from Emily, Isobel, Emily, Olivia scoring x 3, great defending from Chloe, Amber and Charlotte. Mae Hughes woman of the match from Miss Harris for all her assists in the game. Luvena Fowle player’s player of the match for her excellent passing.
Round 1 in the cup was versus Philip Morant. They could not field a team so a walkover to TTC.
Round 2 sees the football team having to travel away to either Chigwell or East London Science school.
In preparation for this match Miss Harris played an 11-a-side friendly versus the Year 7 boys. The girls had never played 11-a-side before so they were learning how to defend and not be offside when attacking. Great progress made. Year 7 trialled out for the team to see if they had the ability to join the squad in the Essex Cup. Congratulations to Cloe O’Brien for making the team.
Next 11-a-side friendly is against CCA with a few other Year 7’s trialling out for the team.
Good luck to Mae Hughes and Emily Priestly who will be attending trials for U14 Essex School representative squads.
Other congratulations to Mae Hughes, Grace Woods and Saffron Heffer in being selected for the Suffolk Centre of Excellence Squads. They train every Friday in Ipswich.
