Girls’ Football Festival

Mounts Bay Academy hosted yet another Girls Football festival, this was the first festival for the Team 16 girls (U16s). They are part of the NEW and EXCITING West Cornwall Schools FA Girls Football competition that is now operating through the West Cornwall district.

Each age band will have two festivals and points from each will be accumulated. There are two regionalised leagues and the top two from each will progress through to a finals day competition competing for the Team 12, 14, 16 girls’ cup.
The Penwith league is based at Mounts Bay and the more central District league being hosted at Penryn College. This is an exciting new opportunity for school girls as it guarantees the players an array of games on the best facilities. Local Community clubs are also involved looking to recruit any girls wishing to take part in regular Football outside of school hours.
Well done to everyone who took part. Many thanks to our Sports Leaders,Dom Angove, Thomas Jacobson and Kameron Colling, for yet again officiating the festival and doing an exemplary job. 
Mounts Bay Academy, Hayle, Humphry Davy and Pool all took part in the Team 16 event on Friday 7th March. We look forward to the next Team 16 event at Mounts Bay on Friday 25th April. The next Team 14 festival will be on Friday 21st March and the next Team 12 festival on Friday 28th March 2014.
