On Thursday 5th October, the girls' football team travelled to PowerLeague to participate in a 6-a-side tournament against schools from all over Nottingham.
Despite being a number of the girls first ever match, they were amazing! We won the tournament, winning five of our six games, drawing the other. The girls were all awarded with a medal and we have a big, shiny trophy to show off in school!
Although winning is nice, the most important thing from the evening is that we had fun, improved our skills a little, showed sportsmanship to each other and other schools and represented our school properly - which is exactly what we did.
A massive thank you to all of the adults and children who came to support the team. It is no exaggeration to say that for the evening, Melbury took over the PowerLeague, such was the volume of our support - it really helped spur the team on.
Well done girls! Now we get to represent Nottingham in the next tournament! How exciting!
