10 Jan GIRLS REACH SEMI – FINALS
Princes Risborough School represented Wycombe Wanderers F.C in the EFL Trust regional Girls Cup.
These national six-a-side football tournaments aim to encourage children to be active, healthy and develop a strong sense of teamwork. The tournament formats involve every EFL clubs community trust run two local tournaments for schools in their area. For the Kids Cup teams are made up of boys in school years 5 & 6 who battle it out to win the local stage tournament, and the Girls Cup follows a similar format but is played by girls in school years 7 & 8
The winners of the local stage tournaments then go on to represent both their school and the football club in regional rounds against the winners of other clubs local tournaments and are split according to their clubs division. At this stage, all participants are playing for a place in the national final where the winners of the Northern region play against the winners of the Southern region to be crowned champions of the country. Both of the national finals will be played in May 2018 on the hallowed turf of Wembley stadium; the boys before the Sky Bet Football League Play-Off Final and the girls prior to the EFL Trophy Final.
