Girl’s 5 A-Side


On the 14th of December, a team of seven girls from Mounts Bay Academy travelled to Truro College to participate in the E.S.F.A Girls U12 Five a side Football Tournament. The team consisted of the following players:

  1. Jamelia Powell
  2. Caitlin Wright
  3. Zyla Yuill
  4. Issabella Brooklyn
  5. Olivia Jenkin
  6. Katie Humphries
  7. Ella Tattersall
  8. Poppy Burford

We played five games in total, and our opponents were… Redruth, Falmouth, St Ives, Hayle and Penair. We did exceptionally well finishing fourth out of six teams despite having very limited Football experience.  We improved a lot through out and couldn’t have done any of this without the encouragement and advice of Mr.Lawrence and the helpful drivers who transported us to Truro College (Mrs Mander and Mr Strong).

Our interests in Football has increased and we are very keen to attend the Girls after school Football Club and hopefully we will be even more successful in the future tournaments to come.
