Tollcross/Bun sgoil taobh na Pairce runners up in Sciennes Football Festival

The girls were entered in the Sciennes festival for the p4/5 and p6/7 teams – there are 3 group stages with 4 teams in each group – to qualify for the final you need to win your group but you also need to be one of the two best group winners – winning your group isn’t enough – if you are the 3rd best winner you go into the 3rd 4th place play of with the best runner up. Like Scotland Tollcross/Bun sgoil taobh na Pairce have never been out of the group stages and never been in the final or the play offs. But this year we drew 0-0 with a strong James Gilliepie’s team with some great save from Alana in goal – next game we won 1-0 against Pentland with a great goal from Myriam – to have any chance of getting into the play offs or the final we needed to beat Craiglockhart and we did 1-0 with a great goal from Niamh – great defending from Alanna and Niamh and brilliant midfield play from Sade, Niamh and Issy – Vaila (who is in p3) played all over the park and nearly scored – we got to the final where we lost 2-0 to a very strong Sciennes – team – but who cares our best ever result. The p6/7 team of Katie, Amèlie, Eilidh, Georgia, Lily, and Mollaidh did really well losing 2 games 2-0 and drawing 0-0 in their last game – they did brilliantly as they only had 6 players for two of the games well done to all the girls you made the school
