Girls Football Week

The FA’s Girls’ Football Week took place during the second week of November and, as part of this excellent event, Balgowan entered a tournament run by Crystal Palace Football Club at Beckenham County Cricket ground.  The girls were lucky enough to meet members of the Crystal Palace women’s football team, take photos with their mascot and see the actual Premier League trophy!

Due to the ever growing popularity of girls football at Balgowan, we were able to take two teams. Both teams played with passion and determination resulting in one of the teams reaching the final – only losing to Pickhurst Primary School on penalties. The girls played extremely well and showed excellent teamwork throughout the tournament.

Well done girls!
