Huge Success for Wellington Girls Football in Phuket

From November 21 to 24, the Wellington College International Shanghai’s 7-a-side girls team participated in the annual British International School Phuket (BIS Phuket) football tournament, the largest in Asia, which welcomed more than 145 teams from 41 different international schools in 10 different countries. Not only were the 11 girls from Years 9 to 11 who formed the mixed seniors squad the first girls team from Wellington to compete in the tournament, they achieved another college first by bringing back a trophy.

Team member Stefania, a Year 9 student at Wellington, reflected on the tournament, saying “the BIS Phuket tournament was something that I think all of us look will back on with a lot of pride and contentment for a number of different reasons”.

“We worked incredibly hard during training that began back in August, we bonded as a team before and during the tournament and we played our hardest, allowing us to place third in the tournament cup after some seriously tense penalties,” she recalls. “It felt amazing to win and take home a trophy. We know that it’s not all about winning but as the first girls team to go to Phuket, we were determined from the outset to make our mark, so we couldn’t be happier to have come away in the top three.”

“It was also a great bonding experience for all of us. When we started training in August, most of us didn’t know each other particularly well,” says Sophie, another team member also in Year 9. “It was a fantastic experience overall and I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can achieve as a team during the next football season if we bring the same attitude and team spirit.”
