Runners Up in Bradford League


The U14s football team completed their tournament last night by finishing runners up in the Bradford League.

The evening started with a semi final against Appleton Academy. The game was end to end throughout and could have easily gone either way, but the girls stuck to their task they came through a tough match with a 1-0 win, the goal coming from Elin Harrison. 

After a short rest the girls then came up against a very good Buttershaw team in the final. After a nervous start they quickly found themselves 2-0 down early on. However to the girls credit they kept battling and deservedly pulled a goal back in the 2nd half through Ruby Sugden but time unfortunately was against them and after a couple of good chances to score near the end they ran out of time to find the equaliser. 

Overall the girls can be very proud of their efforts especially with 5 year 8 girls in the squad and only forming the team 6 weeks ago, so a massive well done to them all.

Coach Mr D Toronczak

 The Squad: Safa Qayyum, Elin Harrison, Arooba Khan, Ruqayya Mahmood, Ruby Sugden, Elenor Warden, Ksenija Kusakova, Ksenija Kudlaja, Zainab Mahmood.
