Congratulations to Annie, Tayla, Emily, Elise and Nyanzobe who won the MK Schools YR9 Girls 5 a-side Football Tournament hosted here at Walton High.
They played a total of six games leading up to the final and won them all with a goal difference of +18. In the final they played Denbigh who they had already beaten 1-0.
The final was great. Our girls played their hearts out. Denbigh were a good side, but we were technically better and took our chances when it mattered. Walton High won that game 5-3.
Nyanzobe proved what a goal machine she is by scoring a total of 13 goals and Miss South gave her the Player of the Tournament award. Players’ Player went to Elise who scored a wonder goal by turning to hit a powerful right footed volley from a wide angle.
All the girls played so well. They are also very aware that a new school record is a real possibility, having won the same tournaments as YR7s and YR8s. If they win as YR10s and 11s, that will be a school record. As a team, they are very focused on this now.
Two recycle bins and two boxes full of food donated by P16 students were taken to the Food Bank at Hollins Lane, Stacey Bushes. They were really grateful with the substantial amount of food donated. Photos show the workers making short work of emptying the bins and the two boxes.
