Worle Community School girls’ football team finished as runners-up at the Winter School Games.
WORLE Community School seven-a-side girls’ football team won their North Somerset group to qualify for the Winter School Games held at SGS College (South Gloucester and Stroud).
The school team were a mix of year nine and 10 pupils. Fifteen schools entered the competition across the South West to qualify for this event.
Worle played well and comfortably beat Hayesfield 6-0 with a hat-trick by Phoebe Payton. The next three matches were a little tougher with Worle winning 1-0 in two games and a tense 0-0 game against Oasis Academy.
The girls won their group and were into the semi-final versus SBL. Fantastic saves from goalkeeper Hannah Worley and a tight defence from the Ferdinando sisters meant a clean sheet and two goals from the forwards.

The team pushed for the equaliser, but Bedminster broke out to score another as Worle became runners-up out of North Somerset, Bristol, BANES and South Gloucestershire.
