The Primary Schools Girls Football League is over for another year and Greenway A walked away as champions. Another closely contested tournament shows the talent we have here in Horsham. After narrowly escaping relegation after tournament two, Greenway A went on to go unbeaten throughout tournament three, earning themselves 16 points which was enough for them to be crowned champions of league 1. A special mention goes out to Heron Way who also went unbeaten on the night but dropped points in three draws in comparison to Greenway’s two which left them one point behind the eventual winners on 15 points.

The other teams in the group put in some great performances which saw Shelley finish in third with 11 points, Southwater A in fourth with 9 points, fifth were Kingslea A on 8 points and a further point back were Steyning A in sixth place. Steyning B did not score a goal on the night but did manage to draw one of their games to finish seventh on 2 points.

After being relegated following the second tournament, Leechpool picked themselves up and put in an unbelievable performance to win league 2. The team did not drop any points or concede a single goal throughout the tournament as they recorded 6 straight wins to finish on 18 points. Southwater B finished in second place with 14 points after losing only one game to the group winners, Leechpool and only by a 1-0 margin. The remaining places were very closely contested with only one point splitting three of them. It was so close that fifth and sixth had to be split by goal difference, which went in favour of Steyning C.

This year was another great year for the Primary Schools Girls Football League with 14 teams taking part overall and over 100 girls being involved. We hope this experience has encouraged all the girls to remain or start playing football outside school at one of the many female football clubs out there. We are already looking forward to see what next year’s tournament brings.
