On Friday 24th January 2020, the girls football team participated in the annual football tournament consisting of 32 schools all over Hertfordshire. The children arrived at Watford’s training ground in London Colney at 8:45 and had a full day of games up till 2:45 where we found out we had not qualified for the semi-finals. To play in such an environment once again provided the children with enrichment and confidence. The Watford coaches were full of praise for our girls, with their determined attitude and their spirited belief throughout the tournament. Every game, they played with a smile on their face but also with a desire to do well and win! Not only did the girls play a number of games but they also had pictures with players from both the Watford men and ladies team, some even got their books and boots signed. Both myself and Mr Honour were very proud of the girls for how far they have come as team.
Next Friday, sees the boys get their chance to represent Parkside at The Dome and we wish them all the best too. Together through sport we hope to nurture and build a future for our children through projects like the ones Watford cater for us.
