Year’s 8 & 9 South Ribble Cup Football Match

After numerous re-arranged matches due to waterlogged pitches, last Wednesday our Year 8 and 9 football team finally got to play their South Ribble 11-a-side Cup Match against Lostock Hall Academy. 

It was a great game of end-to-end football that really could have gone either way. After conceding a goal close to half time, our girls demonstrated fantastic resilience, skill, effort and sportsmanship. They really battled in the second half but unfortunately Lostock got another goal close to full time. 

It finished 2-0. We wish Lostock Hall luck for the next round.

A massive well done to all our girls for superb efforts throughout – Jessica L, Freya G, Isabelle M, Georgia B, Amelia M, Chloe M, Jessica C, Daisy L, Sophia W, Phoebe B, Mahnoor C and Sophie W.

South Ribble Netball League

On Thursday 25th April, the Year 7 Netball A Team travelled to All Hallows for the South Ribble netball league play-offs. They came from behind to beat Balshaws in a brilliantly contested first round and went onto the gold medal match against All Hallows. It was goal for goal until the final quarter but PGHS showed incredible determination and teamwork to take the win! They are well deserving South Ribble League champions and Mrs Finnigen and the PE department are SO proud! A huge well done to all the Year 7 netballers who have trained and played together all year.

Preston North End Visit

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Preston North End invited our Year 8 footballers to attend a match at Deepdale Stadium vs Stoke City. The home team didn’t quite manage to pull off the win but our students enjoyed cheering on Jess and Daisy as they stood in the Guard of Honour and then everyone took penalty kicks on the pitch at home time. This was a proud moment for Mrs Finnigen and the PE department and we have no doubt that you will go on to take many a shot at goals (or save them) on Championship and Premier League pitches in the future! Well done, girls for your commitment to football at PGHS this year and a big thank you to your parents for their support. A brilliant day out had by all!
