22 April 2016

On Thursday this week, the Glennie Bill Turner Cup U15 team went to Harristown for a one day carnival. Glennie were drawn in Pool A and had three games for the day. The girls topped the pool with convincing wins against Toowoomba State High School, 4-1; Harristown SHS, 5-0; and Dalby SHS, 8-0.  After a tentative start, the girls gained confidence throughout the day, improving with each game. They will proceed to the next round in a few weeks.

Congratulations to the entire squad of girls who played some impressive football throughout the day. Special mention goes to birthday girl, Bella Mott, who, with the assistance of her team, pulled off a hat trick in the final game! Tori Gallegos's "keeper run" was apparently the talk of the carnival. She carved up the field from her position in the sticks to have a shot at goal!

I look forward to our next round girls with anticipation!

The seconds football team trained with the Fillies this week as they started their pre season training. 18 girls have signed up for this social team and looked impressive on their first run out!

Touch Football

22 April 2016

Touch Football is certainly still a very popular sport with the Glennie girls with at least 40 girls playing across a number clubs in the Senior Club competition held on a Saturday.  Although not playing as ‘Club G’ for this level of competition, the Glennie players are still a recognised ‘force’ within the local competition.  With the first game of the season starting last Saturday, it was wonderful to see a number of faces in various divisions developing skills, challenging themselves and most importantly enjoying playing a sport they clearly love.

As arranged in 2016, Glennie students were offered the opportunity to play with the club of Rebels/Hurricanes, and as a result the club has been able to strengthen the A Grade division and enter additional D and C grade teams; with the majority being Glennie players. Under the expert guidance of Mrs Kathy O’Brien and playing alongside Miss Lauren Potter in the A grade side are Elizabeth Chicalas, Paige Edwards, Georgina Daniells, Anthea Moodie, Taleah McGrane and Jordan Schriek.  In addition, it was great to see Anna Neale playing on the wing for the Sharks Club A grade side for the first game of the season.

A big thank you to the coaching staff who have also come from within the Glennie community to help guide the girls through a lengthy and rigorous season in the Rebels/Hurricanes club. Thank you to Elizabeth Chicalas (Year 11 student) and Mr Tim Causer for D Grade, Mrs Kaye Broadfoot for C Grade and Mrs Kathy O’Brien for A Grade and Miss Lauren Potter for always stepping-up when required.

This week we hear from Olivia Smith and Madi-Mei Bucknell:

I have just started playing club touch football on Saturday afternoons for Rebels Hurricanes in D grade. I have discovered that the main difference between this competition and Friday night touch football is the sheer size of the opposition but I believe the competition is about the same. One of the main reasons I like playing touch football is because you are part of team and everyone gets a chance with the ball. I found it quite challenging playing Royals because they had a lot more experience playing as a team and working together whereas, this was our first time playing together as a team. Olivia Smith, Year 7

This term, I have chosen to do Touch Football as my winter sport. I have been playing since the end of Grade 5. I still love and enjoy playing. For winter touch, Glennie is playing for Rebels Touch Football club and this is my first year playing so I am in D grade.

I absolutely love playing Touch Football because of the people, the competition, the coaches, the support from parents and each other and just getting out there and getting some exercise and giving it a shot! I enjoy playing and I want to keep playing because I want to get better and gain more confidence! Madi-Mei Bucknell, Year 7

Fillies kick off

23 March 2016

The Fillies football season kicked off on Friday night. After weeks of trials, the squad of 2016 was recently named. We have a mix of experience, youth and determination led by Captain Melanie Christie, with Claire Seccombe being named as Vice-Captain. Fillies is the highest level of competition for school girls. We have six girls following the elite player pathway, The National Premier League (NPL). Girls who play at this high level of competition are ineligible to play for another association within the sport and therefore are unable to play for Glennie. Sadly, this year we lose both Harriet Killen and Lucinda Jensen to this program but wish them well for their season. On a brighter note, we welcome back the formidable Emmi Lewis who had not lost that golden touch as she opened the season with a goal in the first three minutes!

My vision at Glennie is to offer a football opportunity for every girl who wants to play; be it at the most social level, right up to getting girls ready for the Fillies and ultimately the NPL.

The season opener took us to Gatton. The girls had run their cross country races earlier in the day but spirits were still high. The aim of the game for Glennie was to enjoy the experience and work as a team. This they accomplished and managed to knock a few goals in the back of the net too! Izzy Harris is too young by two years to play for the Fillies and special permission was sought from Football Queensland for her to play.  She dazzled everyone with her ball skills and we actually lost track of the number of goals she scored!

Renee Pickering picked up the keeper gloves in place of Lucinda and did an amazing job.

During the selection process for this year's Fillies team, the girls were asked to respond to the question, "What does it mean to you to be a Fillie?" The overwhelming and quite touching response was, "We want to part of the closest family at Glennie". These family values were certainly evident last Friday as the support and encouragement didn't stop all night.

I was proud to see this new young team come together for the first time and play some good football. The score was irrelevant. It was a comfortable win but there is work to do in training now girls!

Three Glennie girls, Amy Webster (Year 7), Rheanca Lincoln and Tyler Kinkema (both Year 5) had a hard decision last Sunday: Tennis or Glennie Fair?  Although the fun of the Fair would have been a lovely way to spend the day, their urge to represent West Zone at the Darling Downs Tennis Trials won them over.  

Their dedication was rewarded as Amy finished in top spot (28 points) in her group while Rheanca and Tyler achieved third placings in their respective groups (20 points each). Congratulations girls.
