 2019 Match Review

 

This years match was delayed until March 2019 due to numerous clashes throughout the year with International training weekends, but doubled up as the official opening of the 3G pitch outside the Knox - Johnston Sports Centre which had been built during the Summer of 2018 and provides a fantastic all year round training facility for a number of sports.

 

The match, was a fantastic clash - the School team having recently been crowned National Champions, and the Old Girls who had not lost the fixture since 2009. Only fitting the the game ended 9-9 at full time. Both teams were keen to have an overall winner so the match went to a Golden Goal decider! The current girls team were the first to get the ball in the net and claimed their first victory in 10 years!

 

Our thanks as ever go out to the Girls PE dept and in particular Jo Vila who pulled the event together and to the players and spectators who made the match a truly memorable one.

 

The new format of playing the match in March and using the 3G pitch was well received and we plan to replicate this in 2020. Further details to follow.
