Team Gateshead U15 Girls District Football

A representative Gateshead squad of Girls competed in the Girls U15 district football tournament (north region) this week. The girls were selected from several of our secondary schools and coached/managed by Miss Rachel Winchester, Head of Girls PE at Cardinal Hume Catholic School. The following girls were part of this squad:

Katie Cuthbertson
Louise Griffiths
Bridgett Galloway
Laura Norman          
Emily Thompson 
Natasha Johnstone
Annabel Legg
Alice Mabon
Chloe Allen
Chloe Turnbull
Amy Buckley
Alanah Greaves
Rebecca Beedham
Erin Macdonald
Francesca Breen
Megan Southern

Team Gateshead played against several other districts including Washington & Chester-le-Street SFA, Derwentside SFA, Sunderland SFA and East Northumberland. They won all matches and therefore the whole tournament in convincing fashion (and even without conceding a goal!). All of the girls were an absolute credit to their respective schools – positive attitudes at all times and gained the highest of respect from tournament organisers, referees and other players.

The results of their games were as follows:

Gateshead V Chester Le Street and Washington (2-0) (Natasha Johnstone, Emily Thompson)

Gateshead V Sunderland (1-0) (Bridgett Galloway)

Gateshead V Derwentside (1-0) (Natasha Johnstone)

Gateshead V East Northumberland (4-0) (Natasha Johnstone, Chloe Allen x2, Chloe Turnbull)

Following this very successful tournament Team Gateshead have now qualified to play in next week’s final of this competition against the winner of the south region tournament.

The final is scheduled to take place at Biddick School in Washington on Thursday 25th April.
