On Tuesday the U16 girls won all their games as they qualified for the Regional Finals on Sunday 5th December at Bedes as Surrey Champions.

City of London Freemens School were first up and Cranleigh attacked from the start and were rewarded with a number of short corners. The first was disallowed for some reason but we scored the next two and scored another two in the second half to win 4-0.

We started rather slowly against St Teresa’s and they defended well against us, 1-1 at half time. The second half was a different affair with us stepping up the ball pace and scoring 3 goals to record a 4-1 victory. Lingfield were then despatched 5-1 with us continuing to improve.

So to the final game against the always strong St George’s – the winner would win the tournament. We went out and increased our ball pace further as well as making more connections going forward to come out with a strong 4-1 win leaving us as Surrey Champions.

With COVID and lockdown last year this was the first school indoor competition for all the players bar one and the improvement made over the four games was very encouraging.

Squad: Freya A., Molly B-S., Charlotte B., Camilla B., Grace H., Jemima H., Izzy J., Roxy L., Sophia L., Sasha P., Kitty S., Effie S.
