St. James girls off and running in football for 2018/19

St. James girls took part in a festival of football at the Beacon of Light on Wednesday, playing five games against some very strong teams from across Tyne and Wear.

The state of the art facilities beside Sunderland’s Stadium of Light are very impressive indeed, as was some of the football produced on the day from the girls. Four of the squad were spotted by the Sunderland scouts too, giving them a chance to put their skills to the test in the Player Development Programmes. Well done girls.

It has been great to see the interest in girls’ football growing in the past year at St. James. Here’s to another successful year girls.

St. James attend Champions League tournament after Hebburn League win

St. James football team attended the Academy of Light on Monday to take part in the annual Champions League event held for league winners in the district.

After winning the Hebburn League for the second successive year, the team played five games on the day in beautiful sunshine. The results didn’t go as well as the children would have hoped, but they battled hard and showed excellent pride and resilience against some very impressive teams on the day.

I am very proud of their efforts all season long and they are a credit to their school and their families. Each and every one of the children gave their all for their team which is fantastic.

Well done girls and boys.
