Boys and girls win at the double
A STAINES school’s girls and boys football teams have both won their league titles by going through the season undefeated.
Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School’s Year 5 and Year 6’s football teams won the Spelthorne Division 1 title after winning all three of their games.
Ray Morgan, Year 5 teacher and PE co-ordinator, said it is the first time both sides have won the league in the same season.
“It’s excellent and a great achievement,” he said.
“We are really proud of all the boys and girls involved who are really good role models and have represented the school really well.”
Mr Morgan praised the girls’ team who, under the leadership of Ellen Roberts, won the league having only formed a few years ago.
“We really had a demand [for a girls’ team] and wanted to offer as much as possible to have the girls playing also,” he said.
“We now want to defend the title next year – well that’s the plan.”
The boys and the girls at Our Lady of the Rosary School in Staines were both celebrating winning their leagues.
