Rosendale’s girls finished runners up this afternoon at the South London Schools FA 7-a-side competition. On a level pitch with no mud (a new experience for most used to playing at Rosendale Fields), the team won one game, drew one and [narrowly] lost one, with Chante scoring the only goals. That was enough to finish runners up to Wyvil school, and both will now represent South London at this Saturday’s Inner London FA Finals. The team have come such a long way in the season and a half that Mr Milne and latterly Ms Cafeo, have been working with them. Led superbly by Blythe, a true female version of Yaya Toure and Stevie G rolled into one, the team played some lovely passing moves, pressing the opposition when necessary. Although only one goal was scored, it could have been many more as both Milan and Beth came close. Superbly well done girls and roll on Saturday!
Team: Lola, Maya, Hayley, Izzy, Saffron, Beth, Chante, Blythe, Milan
