#wecanplay Yr 3/4 Girls Runners Up at local tournament

On Friday 14th October, girls form year 3 and 4 took a trip to Long Lane representing St John's academy in a football tournament as part of the Football Associations girls #wecanplay week.

Several of the girls had not represented the academy before and were very excited about the forthcoming matches. Furthermore, only one of the girls plays competitive football, however that did not stop the sheer determination from all of the girls.

Over the four matches, we won two (6-0 and 5-0), drew one (1-1) and narrowly lost 2 - 1. These results meant that we finished as runners up at the tournament.

I was so happy with the girls efforts, behaviour and respect

It was nice to go on the school minibus and take a trip to the football tournament with my friends. We all played great as a team and we will be even better next time as this was our first time playing together

I love to tackle and shoot, I scored eight goals and it made me feel happy. It was great having my Mom and Dad watching us play and they commented that they were very proud
