The Year 6 Girls’ Football Team played Cheam Common yesterday in the Borough Cup Final at Sutton Utd Football Ground.
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 green team played in the 2nd round of the cup yesterday. They unfortunately lost but worked hard throughout and played really well as a team!
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!
