Elmwood 3 vs 2 Gresham Primary

Our team of 14 girls have shown tremendous resilience and sportsmanship during this exciting and ongoing league and cup fixture. So far, we are yet to lose a league or a cup match which is credited to the girls’ hard work that they put into training every week and the excellent relationship they have with each other. Gresham Primary noted that our girls were ‘competitive, but also polite and friendly, showing kindness and offering apologies to Gresham players when they were knocked over’. After the semi-final win, our girls shook hands with their opponents and gave them three cheers, a fantastic game between two competitive and fair teams. Our next game will be the in the final for the Croydon Cup, go Elmwood!
