Congratulations to the year 8 girls who last night won the Greater Manchester County Schools Cup with a convincing score of 9-2. Goals came from Molly Smith 4, Amie Holt, Olivia Barnes, Mia Walters and Dakota Ditchev. Managers player of the match was Mia Watson with an impressive performance in defence. A possible 252 schools can enter the competition across the county so last nights victory was a huge achievement for the girls.
On the 24th May they will represent Manchester United in a 6 a-Side National tournament at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton. They will also take on Tottington High at home next Thursday in the U14’s GMCSFA Semi-finals.
The year 8 girls are already the most successful football team Ashton has ever produced holding both 11 a-side and 6 a-side county titles. A win next week would see them through to the U14’s final at MANCAT.
Good luck girls
Miss M. Cooper
