COMMUNITY CORNER: Eloise steals the show with final hat-trick

MORE than 20 Swindon schools took part in the Npower Football League Girls and Kids Cups this week.

The event involved both primary and secondary schools, with more than 2,500 schools taking part in the tournaments across the country.

Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust have experienced national success over recent years with Dorcan Technology College under 13’s girls in 2007, and Grange Junior School under 11’s in 2009, both playing in their respective national finals at Wembley Stadium.

The final of this year’s girl’s competition saw Isambard play against Kingsdown A, and Eloise Hayward, a member of Swindon Town Girls Centre for Football Excellence, was the star of the show as she netted a hat-trick to lead Kingsdown to victory.

A golden goal saw Wanborough take victory in the Primary final over Bridlewood, and will now take part in the competition’s regional finals along with Kingsdown.

With over 50 primary schools alone in the Swndon Scools area, I am amazed at the fact that fewer than half of Primary Schools participated, denying many pupils both the opportunity to represent their schools and partcipate in competition. Well done to all those schools who took part and to the organisers, but shame on those teachers who are denying their pupis to participate in such events. If I was a football-mad pupil at one of those non-participating schools and I read this report today would be feeling very cheesed off!
