Our first fixture was on Thursday 21st October at WAS in our dome against Boston International School, Wuxi. It was 8 a-side, with 20 minute halves and they brought teams for both girls and boys.

The boys played first, and they displayed great commitment, were very well organized in their positions with great distribution of the ball and amazing individual actions. The outstanding goal scorer was Jean Claude Duford, overall player of the game Edwin Luo and special recognition for Happy He with his great performance as Goal keeper.

It was a special moment for our girl’s football team. We started with a very small group of girls who decided to take part in the trainings, but our numbers have grown, now we have a strong group of students that are keen to play and represent Wycombe Abbey.

The final result for our game against BIS was 3-0 to BIS taking the win. It was the first experience for our girls to play a game, they showed great commitment, good football basics and positional play. The player of the game was Annabelle Hsu who directed her team well and lead by example displaying excellent leadership ability; special mention also needs to go to Cherry Su, Irene Shen, and Kelly Yin for their hard work and support.
