Chelsea and Aaliyah in the National Cup

On Thursday 18th January, our Year 9 football stars Chelsea and Aaliyah travelled to Hampshire with Cornwall schools U14’s and came away with some fantastic results.

Report by Chelsea

“Last week I went with Aaliyah to Hampshire to play in the Quarter Finals of the National Cup! It was a really tough game. We went 1-0 down in the first half but came back to get a late equaliser in the last few minutes of the game.

It then stayed 1-1 through extra time and went to penalties. After all 10 penalties were taken (5 each) it still remained equal at 4-4

It then went to sudden death and we came out as champions! No Cornwall Schools girls’ team has ever made it this far so we have made history!

We will now travel up to Kent to play them away on the 10th February in the Semi Finals.”

Congratulations to Chelsea and Aaliyah for representing their school and county and best of luck to them for the Semi Final!
