Thank you to all of the girls and their parents who attended the 2018/19 team trials. This year was our strongest trial in terms of numbers and also in terms of the number of girls who play for a team outside of school. Girls’ football is certainly on the rise in Erdington and Saltley and we should be proud of the talent in our 48 primary schools!
Girls, you were a delight to work with from start to finish. Your attitude was exemplary. From start to finish you tried your best and gave it everything that you had. For that reason, you should be incredibly proud of your efforts.
I will be writing to your head teachers to tell them how you represented your schools with distinction.
Unfortunately it is not possible for all of the girls to make it through to the A and B squads, but we thank everyone for taking part.
As mentioned at the trial, there are a number of local sides keen to recruit new girls to their ranks.
If your daughter does not play for a team, please bring them along to one of the following sides as soon as possible, as they have a talent!
Sutton United FC (Sutton Coldfield)
SJB FC (Shard End)
