The girls' football team make it to the final!
On Wednesday 17th May, three teams took part in the girls' football competition at Greatwood Primary School. All the girls, some of which were playing in their first football match, played brilliantly and all three teams made it through to the knockout stages.
Torrisholme A team managed to make it to the final undefeated! It was Lancaster Road v Torrisholme and what a tense and close game it was. The final result ended 2-1 to Lancaster Road but the game could've easily have gone either way right up to the whistle.
This is the first time in the 8 years Miss Stalker has been taking girls' football club that any of her teams have made it to the final so a big, well- deserved congratulations to the team!!
Thank you to coach Taylor for taking the girls and inspiring them to play brilliantly and enjoy themselves while Miss Stalker was on an outdoor education trip.
Go team Torrisholme.
The teams are back in action at Morecambe High on Monday 22nd and again on Friday 26th May.
Girls' Football League 2017
The girls' football team took part in their first set of league matches at Morecambe High School on Monday 8th May. They performed brilliantly as a team passing the ball and working together in all areas of the pitch.
The team won 2, drew 1 and lost 2 against tough competition.
The next set of league fixtures will be held on Monday 22nd May where we are hoping to hit the target a few more times to get the rewards for our fantastic performances.
Well done, girls!
2016 Inter-Schools' Football Tournament
This year's tournament is, once again, being hosted by Morecambe High School. It is held over a period of about eight weeks on Tuesday evenings.
The tournament involves around twelve of the local primary schools.
Week 1 27th September 2016
The tournament kicked off in fine weather.
Torrisholme 1 Lancaster road 3
The scoreline did not reflect how well the team played. At half-time, Torrisholme were 3-0 down so played extremely well in the second half.
Torrisholme 3 Sandylands 3
A very even match. Again, at half-time, Torrisholme were behind and played some great football in the second half to level the score. Also, some brilliant goal-line defending saved the draw.
Torrisholme 6 Westend 0
The team were really into their stride by this time and the score reflected how well they played.
Well done to the team. They played in the spirit of the game and displayed real sportsmanship.
Week 2 11-10-16
The team welcomed our goalkeeper, Joey Richardson.
Torrisholme 6 Poulton-le-Sands 0
Despite a slow start, the team soon got into their stride and went on to dominate the match.
Torrisholme 0 Grosvenor Park 0
A very even match. A few missed opportunities could have changed the score line.
Torrisholme 6 Mossgate 0
The team played well and managed to defend against some quick attacks from Mossgate.
What an outstanding team performance by the girls! The team were unbeaten after the first round winning 2 tough games and getting a fantastic draw against a very good Lancaster Road. They progressed onto the next round as winners of their group. We knew the games were going to be much more difficult in the second round, but that didn't phase the team who continued to play great football against Trumacar, who they drew against, and then didn't give up against Greatwood and Lancaster Road, who they were unfortunate to lose against. The team finished 4th overall in the competition. eVery single one of the girls should be proud of their performance and we are looking forward to the next couple of competitions as a team.
Well done girls.
2016 Football Tournament Heysham High School
On Friday 8th January 2016, we took part in a football tournament held at Heysham High School.
There were 13 schools taking part from the Lancaster and Morecambe area.
We were in a group of four schools, who we had played before and drawn against, so, with only 2 schools going through to the next round, it was all to play for!
Our first game was against Slyne-with-Hest and despite a valiant effort, we lost 2-1. Following this, we played Bolton-le-Sands and lost 1-0. We needed to win our final match against Sandylands to stand any chance of progressing further in the competition. However, a 2-0 defeat put paid to this chance.
The boys played really well and were a credit to the school and played very much in the spirit of the game.

The boys' football team took part in the William Smith Football Festival on Easter Monday. They won their first game against Caton St Paul's 1-0 with a goal by Sam Hayward. This win boosted their confidence and was followed by a 6-0 win against Lancaster Road Reds (goal scorers- Sam Hayward 3, Daniel Palmer 2, Josh Allison 1). The group stages ended with a 2-0 defeat against a very strong St Peters team. The team played really well, including excellent saves from the goalkeeper, to prevent more goals in this game. With 2 wins and a loss we got through to the quarter finals against Lancaster Road blue. The boys lost 2-0 in this fixture, but played brilliantly with excellent football by both teams. Lancaster Road blue went on to win the competition beating St Peters in the semi- final and Willow Lane in the final.
A fantastic morning of football. Well done boys.
