The new All Saints' Academy 3G Astroturf played host to this years District Girls Football Competition on Thursday 9th February. With snow in the air and the floodlights on, we had a great backdrop for some exciting football.

All Saints', Tewkesbury, Winchcombe, Cheltenham Ladies College and Pittville School all bought strong squads to the event. The competition was a Level 2 event of The School Games, meaning the winner of the league would go on to represent Cheltenham and North Tewkesbury at The Gloucestershire Finals on March 21st at Rednock School, Stroud.

It was a round robin format, all teams playing each other, 10 minutes one way, 7 a-side. The team with the most points at the end would be crowned the District winner!

All teams defended well and some fantastic saves at both ends meant clean sheets or low scoring draws covered the score sheet-every point gained was crucial. A 1-0 win from ASA againts Tewkesbury shook the league up, but the final match of the night ASA vs CLC, ASA scoring 1st, CLC equalising.....ended 2-1 to CLC which meant, with CLC drawing all of their games they were the overall winners of the league- Congratulations to CLC and Good Luck at the County Finals!

Thank you to all of the teachers, TA's and coaches that bought the teams on such a cold evening, also to the Sixth Formers from ASA and Hayley from GFA Female Refs, who refereed the matches.

Each school was given information booklets from Gloucestershire FA with local Womens and Girls Football Club Contacts in them so anyone who isn't part of a club yet can make that step to playing outside of school.
