Football Success for Rotherham United Whitehill Girls U13s!

On Saturday, some of our students who play for Rotherham United Whitehill Girls U13s competed in the second round of the Shield against a team in the division above. 

Miley helped the team take the lead with an outstanding long-range goal but the other team conceded just before half time. The girls dug deep which resulted in a penalty shootout… The Rotherham United Whitehill Girls won 5-4! 

This now means that the girls are through to the Quarter Finals of the Shield – a fantastic achievement as some of the girls have never been involved in tournaments at this level.

Sarah Gunn, Coach at Rotherham United Whitehill U13s, said: “The team spirit was amazing and the girls showed excellent sportsmanship to ensure that the goalkeeper was applauded for her attempts in the shootout.”

Sarah has kindly shared a match report of our students: 

Miley – Captain and amazing goal. Stepped up to show composure and secure the win with the final penalty.

Ellie – Player of the Match. Solid performance at the back and stuck to her task 100%.

Sasha – Again, solid performance at the back. Long throws and kicks definitely caused them trouble. 

Erin – Wasn’t really tested in the first 20 minutes but pulled off a save in the penalty shootout which gave us the advantage. 

Maizie – Youngest one of the bunch. Cleared balls out of defense to stop the pressure on the left hand side. 

Jessica – Quick and nimble with the drive and passion to be the first to the ball to try and start the attack. 

Well done, girls – a fantastic effort this weekend! 

Big thanks to Sarah from Rotherham United Whitehill Girls U13s for sharing this positive news with us.
