The Kinder+Sport EFL Futsal u16 Girls Cup
Joseph Whitaker School represented Mansfield Town FC in the regional finals at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
They played other schools who participated under Oldham, Barnsley, Derby County, Notts County and hosts Sheffield Utd.
The competition started slow for the girls with a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Oldham. After a stern yet motivational team talk from the teacher the girls improved with a 1-0 victory over Notts County after a fine goalkeeping display to keep a clean sheet.
This victory installed a new belief and confidence as the girls then went on to another win against Derby County and a draw against Barnsley.
The final group game saw a defeat against Sheffield Utd which meant that Mansfield Town needed other results to go there way in order to progress to the semi final. Following Oldham’s 3-1 win over Derby County meant that the girls failed to progress.
