Girls' Football Season Kicks Off
15 Oct 2021
Footballers from Ashby's Year 10 and 11 girls' teams joined forces for the first tournament of the year, in which they faced tough opposition from three other Leicestershire secondary schools.
The girls all showed great potential in the 20 minute games against Brookvale, Hastings and Bosworth. Players Mia, Freya and Frances each took it in turns to captain one of the matches.
PE teacher Laura Wright said: "The girls all gave it their best shot, challenging for the ball against teams who were physically very strong.
"We'd love to see more girls turning up for training. We'd be delighted to see girls who have played before or anyone wanting to give it a go for the first time."
The girls will begin their preparations for the next tournament after half term - an indoor futsal event.
They were ably supported at the tournament by PE faculty support assistant Mrs Cooper who drove the minibus, administered first aid and cheered them on from the sidelines.
Girls' football training takes place at B block field on Mondays after school.
