Well what an afternoon! Mrs Salisbury and I took 8 keen girls to Lancaster and Morecambe College's 'Danone' football tournament.
For many of the girls, it was their first football tournament outside of school and what a start to their footballing careers they made!
The girl's played 7 games in total and showed great consistency in their performances throughout.
We made a steady start, with a 0-0 draw against a good Slyne side. The game featured several brilliant saves from Lilly, who was excellent throughout the tournament. The 2nd game against Ryelands was where we really started to find our feet. We managed to secure a brilliant 1-0 win with a great goal coming from Mary-Kate. Mrs Salisbury and I couldn't hide our delight!!
The girls finished the tournament as they started, showing great sportsmanship and effort. We ended the tournament with 1 win, 4 draws and 2 defeats which secured a 4th place finish.
I couldn't be prouder of the effort shown by all the girls. They represented St Patrick's magnificently well and they thoroughly deserved the certificates that they will be presented with in assembly on Friday.
Girls featured: Mary-Kate, Lacey, Scarlett, Grace, Natasha, Destiny, Priscilla-Marie, Lilly.
Well done girls!!
