All Year 7, 8 and 9 teams remain unbeaten in district leagues in season 2018-2019


By Pete Woodhouse


Season 2018-2019 is becoming a special year for the junior girl footballers at Neale-Wade Academy, March.

All Year 7, 8, and 9 teams remain unbeaten in the district leagues but the girls have their sights set on bigger prizes.

The under-14 team have reached the semi-finals of the county cup after a quarter-final success against Comberton where Sidnee Adams was in prolific form, scoring five goals. The U13s are unbeaten in the Cambs League and have most impressively reached the quarter-finals (last eight of the country, 246 teams entered) of the National Cup needing one more win to beat last year’s feat and gain a semi-final spot. They beat Bassingbourn 2-1 in Round six.

However, these achievements have been exceeded by the U12 Girls (pictured) who have qualified for the National Finals of the indoor 5-a-side competition to be held at the Birmingham Soccer Dome on Monday, March 4.

Here they will represent Cambridgeshire and The South East region after winning the regional tournament held at UEA last week.

Dave Kenning and Natalie Park, managers of the teams, agree that: “This is a fantastic achievement and as a school, we are incredibly proud of the ability, effort and positive attitude shown by this group of young ladies.

"It is a testament to the great work being done by junior club coaches in the area that we are producing young players able to compete at, not just county, but national level."
