Windlesham Junior Academy entered an all Girl’s team into the 2018 Guildford & District league. This was the first time in the competition’s history that an all-girl team had participated, demonstrating the strength and depth of our academy.
Our girl’s team consisted of:
Sarah Mardani – Captain
Ellie Monk – Vice Captain
The girls were drawn into a league that consisted of West Byfleet, Bramley and Ashford Manor. They played fixtures home and away throughout the season and finished top of their league, undefeated with 5 wins and 1 draw, a great result. The girls even beat some boys teams 5-0, one more than one occasion!
The girls as League winners qualified to play in the G&D final held this year at Burhill. Four league winners participated on the day and all six of our girls played in the final around the Old Course. Their combined scores on the day earned them a runners-up place behind the hosts Burhill. They were only pipped on the day by three shots, Burhill as winners naturally had home advantage.
Our girls have now qualified to play in the regional finals, another first for an ALL Girls team. This year the regional final will be held at East Berks on 29th September 2018.
Should the girls qualify through the next round they will go forward to the National final, fingers crossed for girl power.
