World Cup Fever at Burnbush!

Over 20 girls football teams representing World Cup nations had a fantastic day over at Burnbush Primary School along with their team managers and parents. There was face paint, flags, Aussie hats with corks, and team chants, all adding to a really colourful and fun day.

The emphasis was on fun and encouragement not only for players but for spectators and coaches and they certainly had that! What was apparent is that girl's football is alive and 'kicking' in Bristol schools. There were some really exciting matches and skills abounding.

Christ The King and Bankleaze Primary teams tied for the Year 3/4 trophy whilst the Year 5/6 competition proved to be a real nail biter with both matches going to golden goal and one going to penalties.

Semi-finalists were Elmlea, Christ the King, Parson St and St Patricks

Christ the King (USA) and St Patricks (France) put on a fantastic display in the final and a last minute penalty won it for St Pats so a big well done to them!

The Fairplay trophy went to Burnbush School and the Best Dressed Team award to Four Acres who had really gone to town representing New Zealand, with painted masks, flags, as well as their own version of the Haka (later seen on the HTV news!)
