Flying the Flag with Honour
St Christopher’s School was delighted with the selection of Catherine Martin, Farah Ghaly and Phoebe Licence for the Ladies National Football Team. The girls report “We were excited to be selected to play for The Bahrain Ladies National Team in the Asian Cup Qualifiers in May. We had a two week training camp based in the Elite Grand Hotel, Seef and even a police escort to and from our games. Vietnam were by far the best team in the group but we really enjoyed our match against them and the later ones against Hong Kong and Kyrgyzstan. Overall, it was a great experience and we came third in our group”.
The results were:
22 May 2013: Vietnam 8- 0 Bahrain
24 May 2013: Hong Kong 3-1 Bahrain
26 May 2013: Kyrgyzstan 1- 4 Bahrain
