A sunny Saturday morning greeted the players and fans who were eagerly anticipating the Year 7 final against local rivals…
At May Bank Holiday weekend, five of our year 7 and 8 girls footballers; Shannon Swann, Maddison Lees, Martha Roper, Ellie Mayfield and Chloe Salt, who play for Wickersley Youth U13s girls, attended the Alton Towers Football Festival in the U14s girls category.
They played five other UK teams including teams from Northern Ireland and Scotland, of which all but one team were a year up.
They succeeded in winning four games and drawing one of the five games, then going on to beat the local team Kidsgrove Athletic FC in the final. They then attended the presentation, receiving their trophies from former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar.
Another amazing achievement by these talented girls!
