Great performance from our U13s who defeated St Albans High School for Girls (STAHS) 8-0 in the first round of the County Cup. The girls dominated the match from start to finish playing some wonderful football. The POTM was tied between 3 players (voted by the girls themselves). Well done to Aleksandra Ivaskeviciute, AJ Dew and Mae Tallant.

National Schools Football Cup
Strong performance from our U14 girls this week in the National Schools Football Cup against City of London Academy winning 10-0. Great performances all over the pitch with some lovely flowing football and fantastic teamwork. Player of the Match (voted by the girls themselves) was Liv White. This means the girls move into the 3rd round of the tournament and will now face strong opponents, Woodlands School in Basildon. Well done to all the girls and we look forward to the challenge of the next round.
What an epic match against Rickmansworth in the first round of the U16s Football County Cup! Despite almost total domination from Presdales and hitting the woodwork several times, we amazingly found ourselves 0-3 down with less than 15mins left to play! Then came the turnaround of all turnarounds with the girls scoring 4 times to win the match 4-3. The third and fourth goals came in the last 5 minutes, the winner scored with around 90 secs left. The sheer determination, resilience and never say die attitude from our girls was truly admirable. They kept going and kept going until we eventually found the back of the net! Definitely the most dramatic match I’ve been involved in so far at Presdales. Rickmansworth voted Donya Freckleton as POTM, however they were ALL star players today. Well done girls!!
