A team from Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) has won the local stage tournament of the 2012/13 npower Football League Girls Cup, which took place at the Bristol North Goals Soccer Centre on Friday 23rd November – organised by Bristol Rovers Football in the Community.
Nine local secondary schools competed in this year’s tournament, showcasing some wonderful football and highlighting the number of good quality female footballers we have in our region.
It was also enjoyable to see so many parents present to help spur the girls on during what was a very enthralling and captivating tournament.
Bradley Stoke dominated throughout the tournament but with Castle and Winterbourne always close behind the girls and teacher Hannah Bradford had to be wary to make sure they stayed on top of the table.
The Bradley Stoke girls finished league winners and will now go on to represent Rovers in the South West regional finals hosted by Bristol Rovers FC in January.
The npower Football League Girls Cup is a six-a-side competition for U13 girls that culminates in a grand final prior to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in April. Last season, All Hallows School, representing Aldershot Town, beat Whitby High School, representing Tranmere, to lift the trophy.
Each Football League club organises a local competition for all local schools wishing to take part. The winners of those local competitions then go on to represent the club in the Area, Regional and National phases of the competition, where they will face schools representing other League clubs.
