Girls praised for sportsmanship

Footballers from Pool Academy have been praised for their sportsmanship after taking part in a match recently.

A group of students took part in the West Cornwall Under 12 Girls 5-a-side competition at Truro School on Tuesday November 27th.

Mark Fuller, from Pool Academy, said: “In Group A Pool were put against, St Ives, Penryn, Helston, Truro High and Falmouth.

“The girls did amazingly well winning all five of their group games to top the group.

“We faced Camborne school in the semi-final but unfortunately lost 3-0.

“The girls composed themselves after their only loss of the day to beat St Ives in the 3rd/ 4th place play off.
“All the girls involved should be proud, not only with their ability, but with how they played with sportsmanship throughout the day.

“They did amazingly well finishing 3rd out of 12 schools.
“Well done girls.”
