On Friday 15 January 2016, the U13 Girls Football 6-aside team travelled to Stevenage to play in the East round of the League Cup.
The team were representing Colchester United. It was the first time in Tendring's history they have reached the East stage of this competition - a fantastic achievement!
The other teams through to this round were Barnet FC, Wycombe Wanderers, Ipswich Town, MK Dons, Peterborough, Stevenage FC and Cambridge United.
Team - Jessica Taylor, Mae Hughes, Olivia Fincham, Amber Barker, Chloe Rowing and Captain, Emily Priestley.
The team played some fantastic football throughout the competition. The team drew three games and lost two. Fantastic shots by Emily, Olivia and Mae, outstanding defending by Amber and Chloe with awesome saves by Jessica Taylor.
It was a great day and experience for the girls. They are now looking forward to the upcoming Essex Cup semi final v Eastwood Academy in the Essex 11-aside Cup, the 5-aside football competition in February, 6-aside Premier League Cup in March and the start of the local league.
Training is on Wednesdays after school, finishing at 4:10pm, for all girls in Years 7,8 and 9.
