Coombes Girls School

Fantastic Football Fever @ Coombe

Blue Team champions of the English Football League Trust Girls' Cup 

to our fantastic Year 7 and 8 Football Teams who played in the English Football League Trust Girls' Cup on Tuesday 22nd November 2016 in Morden.

One team finished in 3rd position (out of 15 teams) and our other team finished as Champions!!
Mrs Perry, who was their coach commented 'They all played brilliantly all day, worked well as a team and were an absolute credit to Coombe.'

Blue Team (Champions!)
Daisy (Captain), India, Rose, Amelie, Amy, Amber and Faye (voted players played of the tournament)
Purple Team (3rd Position)
Chloe (Captain and voted players player of the tournament), Greta, Millie, Lydia (voted players played of the tournament), Charlotte, Mia, Keira and Mia.

All 15 girls really were fantastic and made such an impression on everyone who was at the tournament. Even Staff from other schools stayed to support us as they were so impressed. We beat Kingston Grammar in the semis and Cheam High in the final, both very strong teams.
Our girls will now go on to represent Wimbledon FC at a regional competition after Xmas.
Girls' Football is very strong at Coombe and the links we currently have with Chelsea Development programme has been amazing and so many of our girls are involved in it.  We had so many compliments about their playing ability and overall attitude and apparently we made it on to Twitter!!!
