Match Report: Hertfordshire Girls’ U13 Football Tournament
Wednesday 25 October 2017By ESFA Office
Greneway Score Goals Galore in North East Herts Schools’ Sports Partnership Girls U13 Football Tournament
Greneway hosted the tenth annual football tournament between all the Middle Schools in the Partnership: Greneway, Roysia and Edwinstree and Ralph Sadleir. In good conditions all the teams played each other in 30 minute, nine a side matches.
“All the teams came to play their best football and were full of energy and commitment” (Glendon Crook, Greneway PE teacher and organiser)
In the group games Greneway Reds and Edwinstree won all of their matches which set up an epic final. In a very tight match both teams created good chances but it was Greneway who broke the deadlock with an Emma Todd goal to win the match 1-0 and lift the brand new, BIG cup as NE Herts U13 Champions.
“All the matches were well-supported and showed the footballing talent in the North East Herts region and how the game should be played with no gamesmanship, great endeavour, good skills, team-working, few fouls and real concern about their opponents welfare! The ‘Respect’ agenda was enhanced in this tournament and all the players were a real credit to the game and their schools.” (Terry Graves, Greneway Assistant Headteacher)
