Percy Hedley Girls Football Team win the Cup!

Percy Hedley Girls Football Team win the Cup!

Last week, school teams across the North East congregated at the new Newcastle United Foundation (NUFoundation) Centre for the final rounds of the inter-school football tournament as the school year draws to a close.

The day saw a tremendous effort from our Percy Hedley Girls Football Team on their final match for the school year, after playing superbly throughout the season. The Percy Hedley Girls played 6 matches on Wednesday, and only lost one! A very tough few rounds, as all of the teams were hard to beat – the team were so happy with their achievement.

After playing all morning, everyone was ready for a rest! They headed into Newcastle City Centre for a well earned celebratory lunch.

For anyone who watched the match, you could really see the energy and effort that was put into each game, which is something everyone should be proud for. A great thing to witness for young people within sport, where team effort is key.

We’d like to say a big thanks to Percy Hedley Girls coach, Helen Jackson, for being very supportive and encouraging to all of the team throughout the games and the rest of the school year.

We hope to see more of the Percy Hedley Girls Football Team in the new school year, and we can’t wait to see what is in store for them next year…watch this space!
