Talented young footballers are celebrating netting some amazing results in a successful season on the pitch.

Highfields’ Year 9 & 10 Girls’ Football Team finished in the top half of the Wolverhampton Schools League, which featured 15 schools.

They were then invited to compete in a ‘finals week’ tournament thanks to their league ranking, and put on a fantastic display of football.

Mr C Brickwood, Highfields’ Head of PE, said: “Having stormed through the Quarter Finals with one of their most disciplined displays to date, they were held to a 0-0 draw by Girls’ High in the semi finals, so it came down to penalties to see who would move through to the final.

“Despite a fabulous effort from all those who stepped up to take the penalties, and another fine display from Kathryn Smith - our goalkeeper and player of the season - sadly Highfields were beaten andGirls’ High progressed to play Our Lady and St Chad’s in the final. 

“It was a fabulous season, nonetheless. Well done girls!”
