After a heavy 6 – 0 defeat to the same team last week in the League Playoff Finals, it would have been easy for the team to have gone into the game with a lack of confidence. The team gave up their lunch times this week to train in preparation for the final. The extra training certainly paid off! In a fantastic game of football, the girls came out on top and won 5 – 4. They were crowned Borough Cup Champions for the second year in a row.   Well done to the whole squad and thanks to all the parents who came along to support. We are very proud of you girls!

The Year 6 Girls’ Football Team played the League Championship Playoff Final yesterday against Cheam Common at Sutton United FC Stadium.

Both teams won their  respective leagues and remained unbeaten all season. It was the twentieth Sutton Schools’ Football Association Girls’ League Championship Playoff Final. Avenue have won it a record ten times!
IMG_2918IMG_2919Avenue started the game started and conceded a goal in the opening minute. As the first half went on the team starting to gain more possession of the ball and put good pressure onto the opposition. At half-time, Avenue were two goals down. In the second half,  we had a few injuries and Cheam Common took their chances well. Cheam Common won the game 6 – 0. The girls didn’t give up and there was lots of very positive moments in the game. It was a very competitive game, although the scoreline doesn’t suggest that. The team just couldn’t get enough clear chances on goal. Well done to the whole squad! A great achievement and a fantastic season in league. Thanks for all your support!

Surrey Cup Semi-Final

Avenue played Whitgift in the Semi-Final of the Surrey Cup this afternoon.

The team started the game strongly and were winning challenges all over the pitch. The boys played some excellent football and everyone was working hard for each other. Avenue took a well deserved 3 -1 lead into half time.

The team continued to work hard and created lots of chances in the second half. Whitgift came back strong though and scored with some fantastic strikes. Whitgift then went ahead 3 – 5. Avenue still pushed forward and scored a well worked team goal to bring it back to 4 – 6. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough, and Whitgift scored on the counter attack. The match finished – Avenue 4 V 6 Whitgit. The team were disappointed not to be going through to the final, but they should be really pleased getting this far in a tough competition!
