St Cuthbert's High School Through To Regional Finals Of EFL Girls Cup

18 December 2017

St Cuthbert's High School won the final of the Rochdale AFC preliminary round in the EFL Girls Under-13s Cup, qualifying for the regional finals.

They beat Wardle Academy on sudden death penalties after a 1-1 draw in the match played at half-time of Saturday's match against Oxford United.

They now advance to the regional finals, with the ultimate goal of playing in the grand final prior to the Checkatrade Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in March.

A six-aside contest, the road to the finals starts when the new school term starts. Each of the 72 EFL club organises a local competition for all schools wishing to take part in their area, with their final often taking place at the home ground before a first team game.

The winners of that competition then go on to represent the club in the Area, Regional and National phases of the competition, where they will face schools representing other League clubs.

Good luck to St Cuthbert's!
