Players from the U12 and U13 girls’ football teams were treated to a trip to Bamber Bridge FC to watch a cup game between Blackburn Rovers Ladies and Liverpool FC Women. Despite the result, with BRFC Ladies suffering a heavy 6-0 defeat, feedback from the QEGS players in attendance said that this was their ‘best trip ever’ and that they felt ‘really inspired by the match’.

The freezing temperatures meant that the steady supply of hot chocolate from the refreshment counter at Bamber Bridge was also a popular highlight and many of the players enjoyed getting their faces painted and watching the professional and semi-professional teams in action.

Jaya, Eve, Alicia and Zainab all wanted to say a huge thank you to Mr Brierley and Mr Cunningham for arranging the trip and taking the girls to the game.
