AGGS Football ESFA Cup

FOOTBALL report Written by Ms Payne.

We played Wilmslow in the first round of the the FA Playstation 9-a-side Cup.

Comprising the team who played in year 7 last year, it was their first fixture on grass and the first game of the season.

It was quite a wake up call when we fell two goals behind within the first 5 minutes but the response was almost immediate with Phoebe G and Evie J scoring two quick goals to draw level.

The game settled down a little after the frantic first 10 minutes before Wilmslow scored two further goals. Phoebe scored again to make the it 4-3 to Wilmslow at half time.

The second half was a more one sided affair. The introduction of Amna S, who was outstanding at Left wing back, and the fantastic battling of midfield duo Nam V and Mahnoor A saw us take control of the game. Evie J exploited the space on the right flank to create several chances and Phoebe completed her hat-trick going on to score five goals as both Lois C and Evie also found the back of the net.

Final Score; AGGS 8-4 Wilmslow

It was a brilliant second half and the team started to find confidence and showed their superior fitness.

The whole team were fantastic and we now look forward to the next match.

Evie J was selected as player of the match by Wilmslow for her dazzling wing play.

Year 7 Football tournament

Thursday 9th March saw the U13 Football Tournament. It was a regional tournament with 32 schools from all over the Manchester are taking part. The vast majority of the players were year 8 as it was an U13’s tournament but our year 7’s acquitted themselves admirably against physically imposing opposition. After a slow start, losing the first two, the team found their confidence winning the next 2 finishing runners up in our group and narrowly missing out of qualifying for the last 8.

They thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

It was a great experience, hosted by MCFC and using their fantastic training facilities.
