The Quest for Victory Continues
Our Under 13s move onto the semi-final of the English School's Championship
Stratford upon Avon School’s Under 13 girls did it again! After a tense match with Wilmslow High School the position after extra time was a nail biting 3-3. With it being the quarter finals of the English Schools Playstation Cup for Girls, the match had to be decided so it went to penalties in a real stomach churning moment. The Stratford Team hit every penalty and when the Wilmslow high player missed, they knew they had a chance. The final penalty was scored in true style by the team captain, Clara, and the celebrating began!
The team of; Seren Welsh, Skye Holtom, Chloe Jones, Marley Wright, Clara Zaffinani, Amaya Atkins, Dita Nicholls, Ella Taylor Noble, Scarlett Burkitt, Ellie Shirley, Matilda Berwick, and Millie Clark are now through to the prestigious semi finals of the ESFA championship.
Their coach Paul Turrell said “The girls battled and fought incredibly well in challenging conditions and on poor playing surface having faced substantial travel beforehand to get to the game. They worked well to manage both the conditions and the pitch and made Some key in game management decisions at the right times. To achieve our 5th national semi final in the last ten years with 3 completely different teams is nothing short of phenomenal and I’m incredibly proud to be associated with the team as the coach and manager!!!”
