Girls 6-a-side Football Tournament
For the first time in Midfield’s history, a girls only football team represented the school at a tournament competing against other local schools.
As a result of great coaching from Coach Ben from Skills Academy, the girls were excited to utilise the skills they have learned during their football sessions from PE in Year 5. With Miss Dalton as head coach and Mrs Martins as assistant, they travelled by minibus to Bromley Town FC on Thursday 19th October.
Midfield were in a pool with 5 other schools and played 6-minute, 1-way games. Daisy Boost was an exceptional leader and inspired the team to keep going even when they conceded. Suzi Agdemir was also a great goalkeeper having never played in goal before. Overall, Midfield Girls Football Team won 1, lost 2 and drew 2.
Numerous positives were taken from the afternoon including: an awareness of the positions of the game; an increase in passing accuracy; improved communication and team cohesion. We are hoping to organise more friendlies throughout the academic year!
Team: Daisy Boost (captain) Suzi Agdemir, Ines Mbueko, Scarlett Bulmer, Honey Brinson, Lily Etheridge, Shae Loader, Baylee-Rae Kelynack, Halle Brooks
