England players Sophie Bradley and Jess Clarke generated huge excitement amongst our girls, ahead of England’s crucial qualifier against Croatia at the Banks’s Stadium on Wednesday 19th September.
Many of our students attended a joint trip with Alumwell Junior School to cheer England ladies to a 3-0 win, gaining three points that will send them to the Euro 2013 Finals in Sweden.
The trip was great for our local community, considering many students brought along their family to join in with the dressing up, face painting, cheering, chanting and drumming!
There is no doubt that we were the loudest, most passionate bunch of spectators at the match and all students behaved perfectly. Students presented Sophie and Jess the flowers after the game to show their appreciation.
We are extremely grateful to the FA who funded the three coaches and tickets for the match.
