Five of our students travelled with a buoyant squad of 34 enthusiastic IOM school girl footballers to play fixtures in the UK. Chloe and Eve (Year 7), Heidi and Erin (Year 8) and Ellan (Year 9) travelled with two Under 13 teams and an Under 15 team to Manchester and Liverpool to play against a school and a club.

The Under 13’s teams played exceptionally well, in tough, competitive games with Wright Robinson Sports College. They recorded a draw and a narrow 2-1 defeat. At the same time our Under 15’s earned a solid 4-0 victory.

The following day they played Formby FC. Unfortunately, the Under 13’s lost both their games, however, it was invaluable to play against such high quality opposition. The girls battled hard and never gave up which optimized the enthusiasm and positivity with this squad. The Under 15’s continued their winning streak with a convincing win, gaining plaudits from Formby FC coaches too. On tour, we also took part in laser blast and rock climbing and even found time for some shopping too! A big well done to all the girls!
