The year 3 & 4 football competition took place at Accrington Academy on Monday 19th November, 12 schools came along to take part in this cold, windy event! However the girls did not let the weather effect their fantastic performances. Student referees from the Academy did a wonderful job and of great help. The 4 teams making it through to the semi-finals were St Anne’s & St Josephs (SASJ), St Marys Oswaldtwistle, Peel Park, both the A & B teams.
After some tense penalties in the semi-finals it resulted in St Anne’s & St Joseph’s playing St Marys Oswaldtwistle for 3rd & 4th place and a head to head final with Peel Park A playing Peel Park B. Winning the match for 3rd place was St Marys Oswaldtwistle 2 – 0 SASJ. As the final whistle blew for full time the final finished 0-0 resulting in a very intense penalty shootout. Scoring 3 goals to 2 the Hyndburn Girls Football Champions are Peel Park B team!!! Peel Park obviously have a high calibre of football players to be both 1st and 2nd, it was a great game to watch and Peel Park B team will now play at the County Finals on the 25th January. Well done to all the players that took part!
