FA Girls Football Week

The FA Girls Football Week kicked off on Monday 10th October and saw a celebration of female football across the country, throughout the week.

Our brand new Harrogate College Girls football team attended the Power League Leeds Central Girls 5-a-side Football Tournament on Friday, hosted by Leeds City College, and played six matches throughout the day.

It was the first time the team had played together in a competitive situation, with three girls from Sport; one from Health and Social Care, IT and ESOL, the student body was well represented.

The entire of the Year 1 Sport group was on the side lines to show support for the exciting new girls team, and as a team, they improved throughout the course of the six matches, winning three. They missed out on the semi- finals by goal difference alone!

“It was a great day and a fantastic experience for the girls, coming together as a team considering they’d never played competitively together, and they played brilliantly.  I’m so proud of them!”- Andy Reah, Sport tutor and Girls Football ambassador.
