Girls Football Squad at Cardiff City

On the 4th May the force wasn’t only strong with Star Wars fans. Y Pant Girls Football squad were in force down at Cardiff City Stadium celebrating what has been a fantastic year for girl’s football, in more ways than one.

During the 2016 football season Y Pant has achieved great success, with upwards of 20 girls in Key stage 3 regularly attending football training on a Wednesday evening.

These girls, some of whom had never kicked a football until joining school, have now gone on to achieve both team and individual success.

Girls have now gone on to join local clubs meaning they are now playing football on a weekly basis after showing a passion for football during school sessions.

Team success was also achieved with the girls 6 a side team winning the South West Region of the National Football League Competition.  This was held at Cardiff City and the girls went on to represent Cardiff City Football Club in the regional finals.

Two teams were also entered in to the RCT 5×60 football competition with one team narrowly missing out on the knock out stages on goal difference. The other team went on to winning the competition.

A good run in the Welsh Cup was also had this year with the school making history and reaching the semi final of the cup for the first time. Unfortunately we missed out in a close fought match, 2-1 to  Ysgol Glantaff.

More individual success was achieved during the season with 3 girls being invited to train with Cardiff City Football club at their girls Development Centre.

All round this has been a fantastic year for girl’s football at Y Pant with girl’s participation, pathways and also individual and team success.

The trip was a great way to end the season. During the trip to Cardiff City Stadium, the girls got a behind the scenes tour of the stadium. They also were able to participate in a football session run by Cardiff city Coaches and also try ‘street soccer’ for the first time.

Girls’ Cardiff City Football League

On the 26th of November 2015,  5 Year 7 girls and 3 Year 8 girls made up the u13 Y Pant girls 6 a side team to represent the school in the Cardiff City National Football league competition.

The competition was split in to two groups comprising of 8 teams in each group.  Y Pant were drawn in pool 2. They began their group stages at a slow but steady pace, with an initial 1-1 draw with local rivals Porth County Comprehensive school.

Results gradually improved throughout the day, with the girls picking up the pace of play and playing to their potential. This resulted in the girls winning the remainder of their pool games, playing some great football and scoring some fantastic goals along the way.

When all the pool games where complete,  4 teams progressed  to the knockout stages of the competition.  Whitecross (Hereford), Rhymney Comprehensive School qualified from Pool 1 and Y Pant and Porth County from pool 2 with Y Pant topping the group on goal difference.

Following these results in the Semi Final first place played second in the corresponding group.

Y Pant v Rhymney

Whitecross beat Porth convincingly in their semi.  The Semi Final between Y Pant and Rhymney was a much tighter affair.  After the 10min game time the score was 1-1, this meant it would take penalties to separate the team.

The girls showed great nerve under extreme pressure to step up and win the penalty shoot out 2-0 which meant Y Pant were through to the final.

The final was now between Y Pant and a very strong Whitecross team having won the competition for the past 3 years and very firm favourite at the beginning of the competition. There was a huge gulf in height between the two teams, but that’s all that separated the two teams with a very well contested final which was a worthy final to such a great day.

After an end to end game with both teams giving everything they had to the cause, Y Pant came out victorious with a well worked team goal to clinch the game 1-0.

The celebrations after the games were great to see and the excitement and jubilation having won the competition were evident. What made it even more rewarding for the girls is that the hard work they have put in training on a weekly basis had paid off. With this being the first football completion a number of the girls have competed in with some of girls having only taken up football at the start of the academic year.

This team will now go on to represent Cardiff City Football club in the Area final. This will be held in Exeter University on the 14th of January 2016.  They will now compete against other finalists who will also be representing there respective Football League clubs.
