On Thursday 8th March, eight girls from our school travelled to the War Memorial Park, in preparation for the annual schools football tournament.

Our first match was against North Waltham where we drew 0 – 0, a fine start to the afternoon. The girls worked well together and feeling inspired felt that they could improve as the day progressed.

After a short break and a few teaching skills from our parents, they won the next match against Chalk Ridge 3 – 0 and also played well against Sherborne St John, securing another win.

These superb results ensured we were the winners of our group section and through to the next round.

We came up against a strong Oakley team, who put in a superb performance, proving just a little too much for our girls. Nevertheless, St Mary’s should be extremely proud of their achievement as this was the first time they had played together since last October.

Well done to Isla, Bella, Sophie, Lily, Sarina, Emma, Leela and Megan.
