Waldegrave School Autumn Magazine 2022

Y7/Y8 FOOTBALL Our Y7/Y8 Footballers have really stolen the spotlight this half term, though they have only participated in 3 matches, they have been an incredible 3 games, taking victory in every match! Our first football fixture of the school year started with us hosting Twickenham School on 27 September. What was scheduled to be a 9 a-side match quickly changed, as after a last minute discussion with Twickenham’s coach we decided to play a 11 a-side game, giving more girls the opportunity to play the game. Even knowing this team’s strengths, I was surprised just how dominant they were from start to finish. Our team made us proud by beating Twickenham 9-0, not letting them even get a shot at our goal. There were many excellent performances, but the two that stood out were Mia N who, as captain of our team, led by example by not only working hard but also scoring two goals and assisting two, and Isla K who scored a hatrick. The remaining goals were scored by Grace, Lottie, Marielle and Kiera. Well done team! Our team had their first away game at Richmond Upon Thames School on 4 October. The first half of the match was tough, RTS made themselves very difficult to play against and it came to halftime on 0-0. However, in the second half the team played fantastically, scoring 3 goals and not conceding. The team captain Mia N. who scored the first goal was voted by RTS as the player of the match. On 10 October, we took on Turing House, and the team didn’t fail to disappoint. Our footballers played fantastically, scoring 5 goals and not conceding the whole game. Turing House voted for our team captain Mia N. to be awarded player of the match, with this being her third match running of scoring. Well done to everyone, you’ve all been phenomenal out there on the field, we are so proud of your winning streak, keep up the amazing teamwork!
