Emily shines for the Lionesses

Huge congratulations to Emily Brough from Y11 who spent half term week with the England UEFA Development Tournament at St George’s Park.

During the 7 day event Emily participated in 5 pitch based training sessions, where she continued to developed her technical skills. During the tournament, Emily, along with the rest of the squad, enjoyed a memorable afternoon where they participated in a Q&A session with Wayne Rooney. Wayne spoke about his early experiences and the challenges he faced, giving the players encouraging tips on how to manage pressure and emotions both on and off the pitch.

Their first game against Denmark resulted in a 2-0 victory for England, following which they were introduced to Phil Neville who spoke to them about the match and the prospect that the players were only a few years away from senior football.

The following two games both ended in defeat for the team, but Emily scored the only goal against the USA and was voted Players Player in the match against Spain.

Well done Emily, we are all incredibly proud of your ongoing achievements.
