Congratulations go to our U16 Girl’s Football Team who won the semi-final of the English Schools National Cup on Friday 27 January. The ‘nail biting’ match against Stoke Newington from Tower Hamlets (who had a Chelsea and an Arsenal player) was a close game for the whole 90 minutes - ending in a 3-3 draw. The match remained close going into extra time, and resulted in yet another draw of 4-4, forcing the game to a very tense penalty shoot-out. The Frome College Team won by 2-1!

In the quarter final stage on Tuesday 17 January, the girl’s beat Beaconsfield School from Buckinghamshire, by 4 goals to 2. Goal Scorers were: Ellie Strippel & Katie Minty. The previous 5th Round was on Friday 6 January, at home against Royal Wootten Bassett Academy; where the Frome College team produce another top performance and a convincing 6-2 win. Goal scorers were: A ‘hat-trick’ from Martha Peet, 2 goals from Chloe Gilroy, and 1 from Katie Minty.

Our congratulations go to the whole team for their outstanding performance, and one of the best semi-final matches we have ever seen. As things stand, the girls are currently one of the top two teams in the UK, and are looking forward to their chance to be No.1!

The Cup Final venue and date is yet to be confirmed against a team from either Telford or Bury. We will keep you informed as soon as we have the information, for anyone wishing to help support them bring the Cup home!

Good luck goes to the team in the Final - Betty Restorick, Josey Taylor, Enna Christmas, Rachel Pullen, Mary Brant, Ellie Strippel, Macey Ford, Chloe Gilroy, Katie Minty, Martha Peet, Maya Seviour, Gabbie Bird, Izzy Book, Chloe Hill, Chloe Tanner and Kate O’Connor.
