Year 9 student Chloe Gilroy was recently invited to attend the National Football Tournament in Leicester, with the two girl’s teams she plays for. The invites only, go to sides who have won their respective regional league, so the football is of a very high standard.

Chloe plays for Yeovil Town Ladies U15's who this year won their League Cup and came runners up in the league. Chloe was joint top scorer during the season despite being a year younger than most of the other girls in the league. During the day in Leicester, Yeovil played against teams from all over the country, after advancing through the league rounds they were eventually beaten 3-2 in a tense quarter final.

Chloe also plays for Frome Town Youth U14's when her Yeovil team commitments allow. In the Sunday Tournament, Frome played great football and despite losing one game in the league rounds, they qualified in third. They went on to face a Manchester team who had won six trophies this year, and looked formidable opponents. Frome started strongly and soon showed their team strength wining 3-0 and stopping the opposition getting a single strike on goal. The girls then had to play Doncaster Belles Academy who was the only side to beat them in the league rounds. Frome again showed their strength in attack and defence and advanced to the final winning 2-0  with Chloe scoring both goals.

The final was very tense, playing Walsall representative team, but Frome scored an early goal and held on to be crowned U15's Aces National Champions 2015 winning 1-0.

Chloe has also represented Somerset this year, being her sixth year playing for the County since the age of eight.

She has recently had successful trials for Bristol Ladies Academy and has been awarded with a one year contract with the U15 team, she will be reunited with other Frome College Year 9 students, Ellie Strippel who also plays for Bristol Academy, and also with Macy Ford, Josy Taylor and Tia Rollason who represented Frome Town Youth and won the ACE's Cup.

We wish them good luck for more successes in the future.
