30 Jan Representing Hackney at the Danone Cup
Girls football team play at the Danone Cup
On Saturday 12th January 2019, 9 girls from Betty Layward went to represent not just our school but the borough of Hackney at the next round of the Danone Cup. This was at Douglas Eyre Sports Centre. It was very cold and our first game was against a school from Islington called Canonbury School and we drew 0-0 after a hard fought match. Our next game was against a school from Lewisham called All Saints and Immy scored a screamer of a goal which arrowed in to the bottom left corner and Betty Layward won 1-0. Our third and fourth game was against Canonbury School and All Saints School but unfortunately we lost both games which was a really tight affair by 1-0.
All together Betty Layward came runners up and everyone left feeling happy with our medals and hot chocolate!
Well done to the following girls: Ella, Elsa, Bea, Immy, Hannah, Willow, Una, Manon and Laurie.
