St John Fisher Catholic High School in Harrogate are celebrating another football victory after the U16 Girls Football team won the North Yorkshire Schools Cup.
The match against King James High School topped off another successful year for St John Fisher with the U16 team also reaching the Quarter Finals of the U19 National cup.
Manager Carey Huegett said:
The girls were competing against players that were two years above them, so taking that into consideration as well, to be one of the last 8 teams in the country is a magnificent achievement!
The North Yorkshire final was played at Mallorie Park, Ripon, on the 10th May 2013 after a series of knockout fixtures starting right back in September. St John Fisher had scored a record 34 goals and had only conceded 2 in this year’s competition. St John Fisher Manager Carey Huegett said after the game, I am so proud of all of the girls, they worked tremendously hard and I couldn’t have asked for any more.
They thoroughly deserve the Edna Roberts trophy, many of the girls were playing with injuries today and we also had to call upon two girls who haven’t played for us before due to numbers, so to put in the performance they did and come away as Champions is down to the character, ability and belief they have in themselves and each other.
I would also like to thank all the parents for their support and for Julian Clarke for organising the competition.
