Tonight our Year 4 girls football team debuted their new football kit in a friendly football match against Redhill Primary School. We would like to say a massive thank you to Miss Amy Lucas for funding the kit for our girls. Amy is a former Lord Silkin / Lakeside Academy PE teacher that very kindly offered to buy our girls a kit. After discussions with Amy and our kit supplier we decided we wanted to support a local charity and have their logo printed on the front. We all came to the decision that the ‘Georgia Williams Trust’ would be perfect as our kit sponsor. The ‘Georgia Williams Trust’ is a charity dedicated to providing a lasting long term legacy to an exceptional young lady. With the money raised, they celebrate Georgia’s life by enabling young people in the community to access adventure, outdoor activities and volunteering. We hope both Amy and the ‘Georgia Williams Trust’ are as pleased with how the kit looks as we are.
The girls first match in their new kit couldn’t have gone much better with the girls putting in another great team performance winning 7-0. Redhill unfortunately had a few players that couldn’t play this morning but rather than calling the match off we decided to let some of our girls play for them. Well done to those girls, it must of felt very strange to play against their own team mates. The game was a lot closer than the score line suggests with Redhill also having lots of attacking play but our fantastic defence and goalkeeper kept another clean sheet. The girls continue to get stronger and stronger with every performance and are quickly becoming a very good all-round team. Well done girls, keep up the hard work.
