Girls’ Football - It happened, it finally happened. Thorpe Hall are champions. This victory over 23 other schools in the borough was a culmination of 2 years of hard work in the process of becoming champions. The Buffalos of Thorpe Hall have shown true grit and determination and were the best organised team at the event. To score 27 goals and concede only 1 is a stuff of legend and the girls’ were worthy winners against awkward opponents throughout. The girls’ played 9 matches in all and a total of 63 minutes of football. Our fitness and dedication to detail allowed us to overwhelm the other schools. Mind games were played by other teams and there was good banter, but the players were relentless in their pursuit of the top prize. They now go on to represent Waltham Forest in the London Youth Games in March 2020 and the coaching team will make sure they the squad is prepared again. Thorpe Hall was so impressive that they have been invited as guests to play Year 7 teams in the coming months. This will help with our preparation. Well done to Mr Orman, Mrs Brooks and the team!
