Newport's Girls Football Team Take to the Pitch!

Although Newport does not currently have an official Girl's Football Team, several members of year 5 and 6 teamed up after school today to take part in a football match against All Saints. This game represented the first round of the standing cup and even though all of the team tried their best, we did suffer a defeat.

However all girls who took part in the game should be extremely proud of themselves as they had not played as a team before and in the 40 minutes that they were on the pitch they all made massive improvements in their football techniques and skills. 

A special mention should go to our Woman of the Match, Rhea Larner, who took two fast balls to the face but was still determined to get stuck into the game and try her best.

I would like to say a huge well done to all those who took part and thank you to the parents who braved the cold and came along to support the team.
