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.
