Y5/6 Girls Football match at home vs Holy Family (23/2/18) – Lost 7-0
23 February 2018
On Friday the girls’ team went into a tough match against Holy Family. Boosted by Tuesday’s win, even though we knew it would be a difficult game, we went in with a positive outlook to try and stop one of the best opponents we would play this season. The game started well, with chances for both teams, Lucy was unlucky to see her shot go straight at the keeper. Although Holy Family were 3-0 up at half time, two of the goals were preventable and another was right at the end of the half.Our committed defending continued into the second half, with the girls giving everything to try and stop the opposition attackers. Despite our best efforts, Holy Family took control and managed to score further goals. We had a couple of chances on the break, and hopefully the scoreline wont detract from a very good performance from our girls; they never gave up and kept going to the end, we have more games next week which will no doubt see positive results!

20 February 2018
In their first game of the new half term, the girls’ team travelled to Alwoodley in what they hoped would be a productive league outing. We looked really solid from the start, with Paige, Tilly and Sienna defending brilliantly. Connie had some good chances but was unlucky to hit both the post and crossbar.The team found the breakthrough part way through the half when Sienna controlled and crossed the ball from the left corner, finding Connie, who fired passed the keeper. The second half continued much of the same; Bramham had some more chances and were able to increase their lead when Connie’s cross was bundled over the line by Lilly.Alwoodley were able to pull one back with a great strike into the top right corner, but ultimately the girls closed the game out well to get a great win, which sees them go joint third in the league!

Y5/6 Girls Football away vs Wetherby St Joseph’s (12/1/18) – Won 6-0
12 January 2018
Having travelled with the boys’ team to Wetherby last week, it was now the girls’ team's turn to play a league game. It being the first game after the Christmas break, the team were keen to get off to a good start and continue their progress in the league from the Autumn term. We were able to get of to a great start, when three goals from Connie early on gave Bramham the lead! A fourth from Lilly after Sienna had hit the post meant the team had a good lead at the break.Having Bella in goal and Paige in the middle always gives the team a solid base; today we decided to swap positions around to give players experience of playing in different positions, and although Bella kept making saves in goal, it was Paige’s dummy to Poppy which led to Bramham’s fifth. Connie added her fourth, and the team’s sixth later on, but the team performance on the whole was the most pleasing aspect of the game. What a great start to the new term!

5 January 2018
The boys’ team got the New Year underway with a trip to Wetherby for a league game. Having lost by quite a bit earlier in the season, the team were keen to show that they’d improved. Despite conceding early on, the team held it together well, and were able to push forward themselves, with Tom hitting the post, as well as flashing another shot wide. Even though St Joseph’s added another before the break, the team were playing well.The second half saw Bramham push forward even more in search of a come back; even though it never came, the team looked a lot more solid as a unit. Despite Wetherby adding two goals in very quick succession, the team didn’t fold, keeping their shape and composure. The boys keep getting better with every game, and should be very proud of the progress they’re making!

Additionally, Deighton Gates have a good team who are able to take the ball forward well.Despite the challenges, the girls played well and the initial outlook was a positive one as they matched the opposition throughout the first half. They were unlucky to get caught out on the break twice towards the end of the first half.The girls were playing brilliantly; Paige was organising the defence really well and we were getting more chances in the second half. Bella pulled off some great saves in the second half to keep the game within reach, and when Connie halved the deficit it looked like we had every chance to take something away from the game.Unfortunately, as we pushed for an equaliser we were caught on the break again. Although we lost it was the best performance from the team that we’ve seen all year! Well done girls!
