81. Coastal Cup
On Tuesday evening the very first Coastal Cup girls' football tournament was held here in Johnshaven. There were teams from Johnshaven, Bervie and St Cyrus taking part with a great atmosphere of friendly rivalry.
The deciding game was nail bitingly exciting towards the end, and Johnshaven clinched it to win the trophy. YAY!!
Being a small school, our team is made up of girls from P2 - P7, and that can be difficult when playing against larger schools whose team is made up of the very best P7 players. There's a lot of encouragement for both girls and boys to get involved in football training, which takes place regularly in the park and is run by dedicated parents for whom I have the greatest admiration.
Thanks to Mrs Fernandez and the staff at Johnshaven Primary School for gaining parental approval for me to use photos of the children.
