Valley Gardens Girls Claim Premier League Festival Title

Valley Gardens Middle School were victorious in the Premier League Girls Tournament hosted by Middlesbrough Football Club last week.

The girls have have been involved in the PL Girls programme since September 2016 and have taken part in weekly coaching sessions delivered by Foundation coaches.  After coming out on top in the tournament the team were invited to watch Middlesbrough play Manchester City in their Emirates FA Cup clash at the Riverside stadium.

Over 300 girls are currently involved in the PL Girls programme delivered by Newcastle United Foundation.

Lisa Bell, Senior Project Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation, said “It has been great seeing the girls develop over the last six months and even better to see them enjoying playing against opposition from across the region.  We were proud to have them representing Newcastle United Foundation, coming back with a trophy was an absolute bonus.  Thank you to Middlesbrough Foundation for being great hosts.”

Jaime Murphy teacher at Valley Gardens Middle School added “ Valley Gardens would like to say a big thank you to the Newcastle Foundation who have helped over 40 girls develop their football skills across this school year. The girls love these sessions and they have helped give them the confidence to go on and join local community clubs. The six girls that travelled to MIddlesbrough enjoyed a successful result and enjoyed watching the game.  A big thank you to everyone involved at Middlesbrough Foundation who were very generous and welcoming throughout the day, the girls had a great time.”

Sharon Smith the parent of Caitlin Smith who represented NUF commented “Thanks to Newcastle Foundation for arranging this weekend. My daughter loved representing Newcastle Foundation, had a great laugh on the bus with her friends and thoroughly enjoyed the trip to the Riverside – she had a fantastic experience!”
