North Devon Schools Girls Football Competition – Round 1

North Devon Schools Girls Football Competition – Round 1

Match report by Mr King, PE Technician

Round 1 of the North Devon School girls football competition took place this week at Braunton astro turf. Park U12 (Year 7’s) and U14’s (Year 8 & 9’s) played their first games against Ilfracombe, Braunton and Pilton. 

The year 7’s would be playing their first competitive games in this competition and they could not wait! 

On arrival the two team captains Amelia Manning (Year 7) and Brook Tedford (Year 8) took charge of their team’s warm ups and began to relay some motivational words just before the girls stepped foot on the pitch. 

From the first games against Ilfracombe both teams were in top form. Special mentions to Elise Langridge and Liv Lisle on the year 7 team who ran the show, relentlessly chasing down the Ilfracombe players and creating plenty of chances for their team as a result. 

This set the tone for the remaining games as both teams implemented the game plans to perfection. Both teams won 2 matches and drew one which leaves them both with 7 points leading into round 2.
