National Cup Round Up

U12 Girls- Quarter Finals

The girls had their first official road trip to Newton Abbot last Thursday. They played Alexandra park school from Haringey. The Haringey girls scored first to wake our girls up who then responded with a goal of their own. Half time saw them drawing 1-1. After an uplifting half time chat the girls were fully up for a battle. Unfortunately, Alexandra Park caught us on the back foot and put a goal on the board putting our Eggbuckland girls back 2-1. The next restart, however, saw Maisie W run through all the girls and smashed a goal home to equalise. Near the closing minutes Maisie W once again, putting another on the score board and our girls saw the time tick down to an Eggbuckland Win!

The U12 girls are now in to the SEMI-FINALS of the national cup! They will be playing in Newton Abbot against Thornden from Eastleigh.

U15 Girls- Quarter finals

The girls travelled to Newton Abbot for our home fixture against Surbiton. As previous national winners we knew this was going to be a tough game. The girls dug deep throughout the game and played some good football. However, the well drilled team of Surbiton were just too good for our girls and unfortunately knocked us out. Quarter finals are the nemesis of this team! The team now go on to play in the county cup semi-finals on the 23rd March. Good Luck!

U16-Quarter finals

This team have done a lot of travelling in the past 2 years, but this was our longest of all, taking us to FitzWimarc School in Essex. 12 hours total of travelling and an over-night stay allowed us to meet the same opponents that we played in the Semi Final thriller match last year. Having won last year, the girls were aware of their ability but confident. The girls got the first 2 goals of the match and felt comfortable. The Essex girls did not give up and came fighting back to equalise at half time. The second half saw us on the back foot struggling with the conditions of the ground resulting in the FitzWimarc girls finding the back of the net.

The game unfortunately ended in a loss and the end to these girls‘ journey to get to the final again. It has been an absolute pleasure to watch these girls grow from the Year 7 and 8s (who should have played at Wembley) to taking them to the final last year. We are incredibly proud of you. We wish the Year 11s in particular all the best in their footballing and academic future.
