The U16 Girls Football have been knocked out of the ESFA National Cup competition at the semi-final stage. It has been a fantastic achievement to get this far, matching the achievements of last years U13 boys football team.
The game ended 2-1 to Horizon Community College in Barnsley after a hard fought encounter. We took the lead through a neat Katie Parker finished, but conceded an equaliser almost immediately. Horizon took the lead early in the second half, but despite an extended period of attacking pressure we couldn’t quite find the second goal. Every single student who has represented the team has been a credit to the college, giving everything in each round, but it just wasn’t to be. Our attention now shifts to defending the Team Leicestershire County Cup that we won last year.
WELL DONE TO ALL THE GIRLS – FANTASTIC EFFORT!
