Girls' Football Tournament NPL November 2021

Match report from Coach Andy:

The girls were really excited as we travelled to NPL Richmond Schools Borough Tournament. Luckily we were on for the first game as, to be honest, I'm not sure I could have held them back any longer!
First up was St Edmund's and we won 2-0. Next was Trafalgar which ended in a 0-0 draw. We then faced St Elizabeth’s, beating them 3-0. Our last group game was against Barnes who had won all of their games so this was a decider for who would top the group. This was our best performance so far, with Stanley girls winning 3-0. We were through to the cup competition as group winners. 
After lunch we faced St Richard Reynolds in the last 16. Again the girls didn’t disappoint, winning 3-0 . On to the quarter finals were we were up against Meadlands who had already beaten the much-fancied tournament favourites, East Sheen. Again the girls were on fire, winning 3-0. For the s
emi final we played the fantastic Collis team, who have never conceded a goal! The girls played hard until the end, never giving up, but eventually missing out on a place in the final. 

What a wonderful achievement for Stanley girls, scoring 14 goals without conceding up to the semi final. Well done Olivia, Pheobe, Cecilia, Nora, Lilah, Catriona, Bella, Mia, Marie and  Keira - you are a fantastic team, great sportswomen, and really supportive of each other.  I and everyone at Stanley are very proud of you. Coach Andy

PS - the girls courageously took on Collis again in a friendly a few days later. They didn't win, but they played another strong game, prompting the Collis coach to comment that Stanley are the best team they have ever played against! #stanleystars
