What a season awaits our superstar girls!


The Girls Football team are on fire this season. They have played 3 matches so far, they have scored 20, yes 20 and only conceded 1. 

Friday 14th September - Friendly vs St Andrew's

Result: Broughton  5 - 1  St Andrew's (Cutting 3, Smart 1, Rawson 1)

An amazing team performance, led by Elise Rawson and Captain Bayla Smart, the girls scored five quality goals and showed signs of real promise with the style of passing football we are trying to play. 

Wednesday 26th September - League Match vs St Ignatius

Result: Broughton  8 - 0  St Ignatius (Cutting 3, Rawson 3, Latham 1, Rankin 1)

As you can see, a truly tremendous result. What was more pleasing was the performance of each player and the team as a whole. Passing the ball crisply, getting into great space and just working tirelessly from the first whistle to the very last! Annabel Cutting deserving of a special mention her striking prowess is growing from match to match and I anticipate she will score lots and lots of goals.

Wednesday 3rd October - Friendly vs St Maria Goretti

Result: Broughton  7 - 0  St Maria Goretti (Cutting 3, Smart 3, Rawson 1)

At this point, I am finding myself lost for words. This game is the best football any girls' football team at Broughton has ever played. Wonderful quality with the passing, excellent movement off the ball, great communication and superb finishing. Lots of goals being scored by the weaker foot. However, Bayla Smart (Captain) deserves a special mention. She put in such a majestic and powerful performance. Driving from the heart of midfield, creating lots of attacks and showing off her amazing ability to strike the ball so sweetly with some deadly shooting/finishing. Another great team performance.

Mr. Bird's thoughts: Girls, you have been amazing so far and you are amazing no matter what. The result is irrelevant, it is the standard of football you are playing. I challenge any team in Preston to match this. As a result, the results will come but all that matters is that you keep playing with a smile on your face :-). Well done to: Bethan Sloan (GK), Bayla-Rose Smart (Capt), Annabel Cutting, Elise Rawson, Olivia Rankin, Alex Latham, Olivia Newman-Kirk, Eva Hughes and Darcy Hawthorne. #legends.
