Derby County Girl's Football


On Tuesday 22nd March 2016 Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Kirk were lucky enough to take eight girls to compete in the annual Year 5/6 Girls Football Festival. Thirty two teams from across Derby competed in eight groups of four at Derby’s Soccerdome. Longmoor played 3 group games.

In the first game we drew a very tight game 0:0 against Aston Trent. Our second game was equally close but we conceded three late goals to lose 3:0 against Parkside. In our final game we beat Walter Evans B team 2:0 with goals scored by Katie May and Abigail F.

After lunch we played Asterdale and beat them 4:0 with goals from Abigail F x2, Katie May and Jasmine. Unfortunately, this was not enough to get through to the next round but we all had a thoroughly good time and the girls represented the school fantastically. Mr Bunhejee and Mrs Kirk were extremely proud of the girl’s behaviour and their football skills.

A big well done to Abigail F, Abigail B, Jasmine, Amber and Katie May from Year 6 and Amelia, Jaime and Kya in Year 5.
