Massive congrats to the group of girls in the photo that have respresented their School in the Cheshire Schools Competition and WON. All 8 girls play for Winsford Diamonds Under 11's.
Previously they had won the Winsford schools tournament at Winsford Academy so they then went on to to represent Winsford schools at the Mid Cheshire tournament again at Winsford Academy.
They won that too so went on to the Cheshire finals at Crewe Alex soccer centre.
They went unbeaten in that tournament & won that too to become the Champions of Cheshire.
So on Friday they were representing Cheshire Schools.
They drew there first game 0-0 after being a bit nervous, they then went on to win the next 3 remaining games in their group to top the group & qualify for the Semi finals.
There they played the Merseyside Champions & won 3-1.
The girls then lined up in the final against the Northumberland champions.
They were 4-1 by half time & the score stayed the same as we comfortably saw out the 2nd half to win the whole tournament!!
Other teams in the tournament were the Greater Manchester champions, Durham, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cleveland & Cumbria.
Reward for this now is the National Championship in May where the girls will represent the whole of the North of England against the school champions of the Midlands & the South of England.
As mentioned all 8 girls line up for Winsford Diamonds U11’s on a Saturday morning at Moss Farm in the Mid Cheshire so Rob from Winsford wanted us to share this fantastic news with you as they are representing their school, town, county & now regional area so well.
Want to make your club more inclusive? Do you fancy becoming a 'for all' officer and working with Cheshire FA to help develop an inclusive game that we can all be proud of?
