Tuesday 6th March 2018
On Tuesday 6th March Meadowhead Junior School took the girl's football team to St Bedes to take part in a 6 a side competition. It was an amazing turnout and was well supported by the children's parents. There were 4 groups of 4 and each team played 3 games lasting 10 minutes a match. In our group, there were: Sacred Heart, Feniscowles and Shadsworth. The girls played really well and won 2 of our games losing 1. It was a fantastic evening and the girls worked very well as part of a team. Very promising for the future.
On Wednesday 8th November 2017, there was a girls football festival that took place down at Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre. This was a one off competition to promote girls football. Selected for the team were: Libby Harrison Gooden, Sophie Wood, Jessica Howard, Ellie Logan, Lucy Todd, Elle Houghton, Alicia Knowles and Hazel Grant. The team played 6 games winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 1. They had a fantastic time and they represented the school excellently. The children showed how well they worked as a team and played brilliantly well for their first time together. I have real high hopes about this team for the future.
They are also very proud, as you can see, to wear our new football kit donated to us by the Premier League. Such a smart and well presented kit.

We have recently held trials for the girls football team on Thursday 23rd February 2017 and another one on Monday 27th February 2017. 15 girls attended the trials and all worked very hard. They listened really well to instructions and worked amazingly together as part of a team passing and moving. The competition for the Girls football team is on Tuesday 28th February 2017. We have selected a team from the 15 and 9 children will be taking part. This has been the strongest girls Football team we have had in years and we feel very confident and apprehensive for the competition. Come on Meadowhead!!
