The EFL Girls Cup is a national tournament for junior footballers which offers children the amazing opportunity to play at Wembley Stadium.
The EFL Girls Cup is for under 13 girls that culminates in a grand final prior to the EFL Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in front of thousands of fans before a major national final.
Combined, the Children and Girls Cups involve over 20,000 children and create one of the country’s largest national football competitions. The competition inspires children to be active, healthy, and helps develop a strong sense of teamwork.
The Blackburn Rovers Trust hold heats for teams at the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre to determine which school will win the prestigious honour of representing Blackburn Rovers in the inter-club phases, and pull on the famous blue and white halves.
Team BCHS lost their first game, but due to excellent team work won a brilliant 6-1 victory over Longridge. They faced another great side in Our Lady Queen of Peace, and despite working extremely hard the girls could not grab the points.
Overall the standard of football was very high and the girls worked brilliantly as a team, showed great sportsmanship towards their opponents and were an absolute credit to both themselves and to Blackburn Central High School.
“Well done to the under 13s girls football team for their fantastic efforts today! You worked brilliantly as a team and showed great sportsmanship towards your opponents; absolute credit to both yourselves and BCHS with Crosshill – you make me super proud!” tweeted Miss Sturgess
