Girls take to the pitches to show boys how it is done!


On Tuesday 3rd December over 100 Year 3-4 girls took to the pitches to show off their football skills. The girls were taking part in the SSPs Year 3-4 Girls Football Competition held at the Sportspark. The event was part of the Norfolk School Games programme.

Fifteen teams from 9 different schools took part in the competition. Teams were made up of 8 players with 5 on the pitch at any one time. All matches were 6 minutes long and refereed by sports students from Easton and Otley College.

Teams were initially split into four groups and teams played against each other in a round robin format. The teams that finished 1st and 2nd then progressed into the cup competition and those that finished 3rd and 4th went into the Plate competition.

The Cup and Plate competitions were each split into two groups with teams in each group playing each other. The teams that finished in the same position in each group then played off against each other for overall positions.

The overall positions were;
