With 13 teams taking part from 8 local schools the tournament saw over 95 girls playing football throughout the afternoon at Stevenage FC Academy.

The tournament saw teams battle in two groups to secure one of the two top spots and qualify for the Semi-Finals. Barnwell, Nobel, Marriotts and John Warner made up our Semi Finalists with the winners to be decided by a Barnwell vs Marriotts final. In what was a brilliant game, Barnwell went two goals ahead before Marriotts staged a superb comeback and ended up 3-2 winners.

Marriotts School will now represent Stevenage FC in the Area Finals in Luton where they’ll face winners from other EFL Clubs’ tournaments. They’ll be hoping to make it through to the regional finals in Swindon where they’ll fight for a place in the National Finals at Wembley Stadium.

A big congratulations and thanks to all our participating schools:

  • Barnwell School
  • John Henry Newman School
  • John Warner School
  • Nobel School
  • Marriotts School
  • Monks Walk School
  • Onslow St Audrey’s

Thanks also to Stevenage FC first team players Scott Cuthbert and Dean Parrett for coming to see the girls at the tournament.
