The EFL Girls Cup
This year’s competition saw 9 teams from 6 schools enter the EFL Girls Cup.
Schools included Ashfield, Shirebrook Academy, Meden, Kirkby College, Joseph Whitaker and Sutton Academy.
The group format saw every school play each other with the top school earning the right to represent Mansfield Town FC in the Area Finals which we will be hosting in January 2018.
All the schools started brightly especially Sutton Academy, Shirebrook and Kirkby College. The standard of the night was impressive especially with a couple of the girls standing out on the Shirebrook side.
Sutton Academy emerged victorious from the night with a 100% record and zero goals conceded.
The girls will now look forward to January where they will test their skills against other schools representing other professional clubs such as Derby County, Chesterfield, Sheffield Wed, Sheffield Utd, Notts County, Rotherham, Doncaster, Lincoln City, & Nottingham Forest.
