Carr Hill High School represented Fleetwood Town Community Trust last at the EFL Trust North West Regional Finals at Wigan Athletic FC training complex.

The team won the regional finals at Poolfoot Farm against 14 other local high schools, which enabled them to represent the Trust on the road to Wembley.

The teams were drawn in the group stages against Bolton Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers, Preston North End and Wigan Athletic.

Fleetwood Town were undefeated in their games against Blackburn, Preston and Bolton and agonisingly missed out on a place in the semi-finals after a loss to Wigan.

The girls from Carr Hill all represented Fleetwood Town with pride and showed an incredibly high standard of football throughout the tournament.

Chris Morton, the Sports Development Officer has been responsible for the growth in girls’ football locally for the Community Trust, and said: “The quality of football at these tournaments over the last two years has increased, as more and more girls engage in football in school and in local grassroots football teams.

"This is a testament to the time and effort that the Trust has spent on increasing participation and engaging with high schools. I can only see this improving as the years go by, and girls playing football gets more media and national attention.

“Carr Hill represented the club, their school and themselves with pride.”
