Football Cramlington Y5/6 Girls Football Tournament

18th October 2019

Cragside Girls had their first opportunity to show off their footballing skills and ability this week, when they attended the Cramlington and Seaton Valley Girls Football tournament at the JLV on Thursday. Cragside's first game was against Shanklea which they won 1-0 with a great finish from Hollie W in the first 30 seconds being enough to secure the win. Cragside's second game was against Northburn, which despite a great effort they were beaten 2-1 - a smashing goal from Alex I was a particular highlight of this fixture. Cragside were back to winning ways in their next game against Hareside which they won 1 - 0 thanks to a tidy finish from Shona E. Cragside finished off their tournament by beating Burnside 2-0 with another goal each for Hollie W and Shona E. Throughout the tournament Cragside played brilliantly with Jasmine W, in goal, keeping 3 clean sheets with some excellent saves and help from tenacious defenders Ella K and Lucy P. Cragside dominated the midfield and created many chances in each game with Faith G, Sophia H, Alex I, Shona E and Hollie W controlling play and finishing neatly. Unfortunately for Cragside their 3 wins and 1 loss was narrowly beaten by Northburn who won 3 and drew 1 to secure first place by a solitary point. Well done to all the girls on a magnificent tournament.
