Further gains in football

The U15 football team played in a tournament at Haileybury School in mid-June.  The team surpassed the England World Cup team’s achievement and finished 3rd overall. In the group stages they beat Bristol Grammar 1-0 and Stamford 2-0 and drew against Queenswood 1-1. They only lost one match by 0-1 against the host team Haileybury ‘A’.

The semi-final was decided by a ‘sudden-death’ penalty shoot-out in which St Swithun’s narrowly lost 4-5 to tournament winners Bedford Modern having drawn the match 0-0.

Congratulations to team members Olivia Newman, Olivia Jones, Lucy Jonas, Allegra Whittome, Jodie Ferguson, Tilden Lock, Eloise Eskes, Natalia Smithers, Angel Harvey-Ideozu, Stephanie Odogwu and Rosanna Stratton.
