In September, both Lucy O (Year 9) and Darcy D (Year 8) trialled to represent the u14 Essex County Schools’ Team. This prestigious team was successful last year in winning the County Schools’ National Trophy which is one of the stepping stones for footballers. We are delighted to hear that both girls have been selected to be a part of the squad and have already played in their first fixture, beating Hertfordshire 4-1, with Darcy getting on the score sheet in her debut.
The PE department is extremely proud to announce that Lucy O in year 9 has also been successful in her selection for the South East of England regional schools’ squad. This is a fantastic achievement which will now see her trial with the 4 regions all together in order to gain a place on the English Schools’ U15 girls’ international squad. Huge congratulations Lucy!
