Charlotte Buxton in Year 11, Chloe Gilroy and Ellie Strippel in Year 10, have been chosen to represent Somerset Schools U16's team in the England Schools FA U16 Inter County Trophy.

The team has qualified for the national tournament after competing in the South West and Wales stages, beating teams from Wiltshire, Glamorgan and Oxford Schools.

After a long journey to Brighton on Thursday 11 February, the team played in the semi-finals of the tournament against Sussex Schools. 

From the start of the match the team dominated their opponents and at half time were 3-0 up. The second half was almost a repeat of the first half with the Somerset team controlling the match.  The final score was 5-1 to the Somerset side, with Ellie scoring 2 of the goals.

 

 

They are now waiting for the date of the final and news on who their opponents will be; this will represent the best of the South English Schools. If they are successful in this game, they will then go onto to play against the best of the North English Schools, making them the best girls’ school team in the whole of England, if they win. 

We wish them all good luck in the final.
