Girls Football 2012

Girls football has remained popular during the 2012/13 academic year. Sixteen Volta girls have been involved including some with previous football training as well as several newcomers. The Volta girls have shown great spirit and pride throughout the year and a strong commitment to training and socialising. This is a strong foundation on which results will come in a near future and the College awaits confidently for these.

From November 2012 the girls of Volta trained twice a week with the coach, Federico Moretti, a University student, and Giorgio Badessi, a member of the College and gradually a team emerged with goalkeeper Giulia Bonaretti as captain and defender Alessia Spera as deputy. During the tournament, Volta had its moments of glory, but often succumbed aggressive and well trained teams. The most important results thus far, therefore, have been the birth of a team spirit: the pre-match speeches, the jokes, the songs …. The results on the pitch have not materialised (the team came last in its group and last overall) but, all in all, a positive year for the Volta football girls and a strong determination to continue and improve.
