Since beginning another year of girl’s football here at Crestwood, the number of girls taking part within extra-curricular football has grown immensely. The girls have the opportunity to train every Tuesday and Thursday after school in order to improve their knowledge and skills.
Over the last few months our year 7 girl’s football team have taken the local area by storm with their talent. On the 12th of December we travelled to The Dormston School to compete in the first round of the ESFA 5 a side tournament. The girls slotted home 14 goals and conceded 0. On the 19th of December we travelled to The Dormston School to compete in the second round of the ESFA 5 a side tournament and the girls scored a further 14 goals and conceded 0, securing our first place position. Pretty impressive if I say so myself!
Not only did the girls dominate the tournament they secured a place at The West Midland English Schools Football Association indoor finals!! The competition was held at the Play Football Centre in Birmingham on Monday 4th February 2019. The team faced a number of schools across the region with some incredible talent on display. The girls battled through to the semi final and finished 3rd overall which is an incredible achievement.
Well done to Miss Ellis and the girls!
