With all the football related brouhaha in the last couple of weeks, one very local and special footballing endeavour may have been overlooked by the residents of Brownhills, which I can’t let pass unmentioned.
This week, the girls of Millfield School football team have been playing in San Sebastian, Spain, in the Donasti Cup – representing Britain.
Old pal of the blog Kim Burgess said:
Big shout out to the girls from Millfield School flying out to San Sebastian in Spain today to represent the UK in the Donasti Cup.
The Millfield Girls Football Team will been playing teams from around the world during the coming week… we are so proud of them all!
And, later in the week:
Played their hearts out today but lost 4 -3 – we are all so proud of them. They are just one small dedicated school football team taking on teams from around the world that have the pick of their country’s best talent… our girls are amazing.
These young ladies have given their absolute all against the top ladies football academies from around the world.
One small school team taking on the world with fire and passion and the belief that anything is possible!
I’d just like to express both my and readers sincere admiration and thanks to this wonderful group of young ladies and those who helped them get so far. They are all a credit not just to Brownhills, but to the UK and I think we can all be very proud indeed.
Best of luck in the coming years, I’m sure we’ve much more to hear from your footballing exploits yet!
Well done. You make us all very proud. Take a bow.
god bless you girls and all who give their time and support you this is football from the heart may it beat for many years to come
Great stuff girls. A bit like “When West Auckland Won The World Cup”.
Well done girls
It’s coming home, in more ways than one!!
Hi there – report from Spain. Played Real Madrid’s U12 this week – The actual Real Madrid!!!!! We lost but played some of our best football and afterwards they asked for a photo with us. Incredible footballers and a lovely bunch of girls. After the game they came to our changing room to sing Happy Birthday to Naomi Stone. Absolute class in every way!
Thank you for all the love and support from back home. It means the world to us.
