We took part in an invitational football festival along with 16 other schools from around Birmingham. The standard was very high but we were certainly up to the right level. I couldn’t fault any of our girls throughout the competition – their effort, enthusiasm and energy were fantastic. In the five matches we played, we only conceded one goal. The problem though was scoring ourselves, so unfortunately after four 0-0 draws and a 1-0 defeat, we went out of the competition. I was very proud of the whole team though who gave everything and did everything but score. We now look forward to our final fixture of the year after half term.
