On Saturday 28th January the U11 football team competed in the ESFA Primary 7 a side County Finals Day at Garden Fields School in St Albans.
The girls played a round robin tournament against five of the best schools in Hertfordshire.
In the first match, the girls played St Mary’s and despite having most of the possession, they lost 1-2. In the second match, Manor Lodge again kept the ball well, but they were unlucky to lose again 1-2. In their third match, they played against Almond Hill who had already won two of their matches. They were an extremely strong team and despite Manor Lodge battling well, they eventually lost 0-4.
Manor Lodge’s next match was against St Edmunds, the only other Prep School in the Finals. In this match, the girls really worked hard and there was some wonderful passing. This led to three great goals and a superb win. In the final match, Manor Lodge were unlucky not to score on several occasions and unfortunately lost again to Ickleford.
Manor Lodge eventually finished joint fifth in the competition.
It was a great morning of football, well played everyone.
