Year 3-6 #LetGirlsPlay football fun!

South Norfolk SSP today hosted a fun day of football at Goals, Norwich for girls in year 3-6.


31 teams and over 250 girls took part in the competition which was aimed at introducing new girls or teams to the game of football and giving them the opportunity to represent their school in a fun and friendly competition.


Matches were 5-a-side with roll on roll off subs with teams getting to play against lots of different schools in quick 10-minute matches. A group of 16 leaders from Easton College helped referee all the games on the day.


The schools taking part included: Wreningham, Tacolneston, Morley, Loddon, Browick Road, Spooner Row, Carleton Rode, Forncett, Dickleburgh, Garboldisham, Alburgh, Saxlingham, Preston, Surlingham, Brooke and Hempnall.


With the focus of the event being on introducing competitive football in a positive and fun environment the leaders were asked to score the teams based on their teamwork, respect and fair play. The scores were then collated and at the end of the afternoon awards were presented to the following teams.


Year 3-4 Team Respect Award: Dickleburgh

Year 5-6 Team Respect Award: Browick Road

Year 3-4 Winners: Brooke

Year 5-6 Winners: Loddon


Each school also nominated a player in each team for a RESPECT award. Well done to all these pupils.


Girls’ football is growing fast, and this is the most teams that have ever entered our competition. It was a lovely day of football and great see so many pupils having a fun time playing with their friends and representing their schools.


I hope that some of them will continue to play back in school and some go on to join their local Weetabix Wildcats session or local girls club. We are slowly seeing more and more opportunities for girls to play football in schools and the community which is great as we work towards ensuring all girls have equal access to football.


Our next event is on Friday 8th March as part of the national #LetGirlsPlay Biggest Ever Football Session where we are working with local clubs and schools to get as many girls playing football on the same day as possible.
