Brookmans Park v Wroxham, Girls Football A Team
On Friday 16th March, Brookmans Park played Wroxham at home. After a very even start, we went into half time at 1-1 thanks to a fine finish from Tiana. In the second half, however, we really began to dominate the match. A spectacular strike from the half-way line by Rhianna saw us take the lead, whilst there were a further two well-taken goals from Tiana. Megan L also found herself on the score-sheet after a super run into the box and determined finish. This was followed by an own goal which wrapped up the points as the game ended in a 6-2 victory. Congratulations to all of the girls for an excellent performance and to our players of the match: Tiana (as chosen by Wroxham) and Rhianna (as selected by Miss Kropman).
Year 4 Football Festival at Monk’s Walk School
On Wednesday 14th March, all of Year 4 attended a football festival at Monk’s Walk School, led by the Welwyn and Hatfield Sports Partnership. Although this was friendly, non-competitive tournament, each of our four teams played brilliantly to draw or win all of their games! We also benefitted from some fun coaching by the Monk’s Walk sports leaders whilst waiting for our matches to begin. Miss Kropman, Mrs Jackson, Miss Law and Mrs Smith were all very proud of their teams both in terms of effort, skill and behaviour. Well done, Year 4!
Girls Football matches versus Cuffley
On Tuesday 6th March, our A and B teams played matches against Cuffley School. First up was the A game, where our girls battled brilliantly against very strong opposition.

In the B team match, we dominated from the outset and produced an excellent team effort to win the game 2-1. Our two Year 4 players particularly shone, with Enya scoring both of the goals and Melanie being named player of the match. Well done to everyone who took part - Miss Kropman is very excited for your next games!

Well done to all the Year 6 girls who attend our Thursday Netball club for taking part in a

On Friday 6th October, a team of eight plucky Year 6 girls attended the Welwyn and Hatfield Sports Partnership Year 5&6 football tournament, which was held at Monk's Walk School. We were placed in a preliminary pool group to determine the strongest teams present and, after claiming victory in all of our games, were pitted against Birchwood and Welwyn St Mary's in the 'gold' pool. After some resolute defending from Thea, Aleyna, and Anastasia, we kept our clean sheet record going into the final game, with 'keeper Lily excelling between the sticks as we beat Birchwood 1-0. Our last game was against a very strong Welwyn St Mary's team yet, once again, our goal-machine Tiana was in fine form, ably supported by a talented midfield trio of Holly, Megan and Rhiannon, and we retained our undefeated record! Crowned champions of the tournament, the girls should be very proud of themselves!
