St Winefride’s were recently invited to participate in the EFL Cup, played at Shrewsbury Town FC and run by Jonny Hughes from the Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation.
The weather was kind, and some 20 schools participated, split over 4 groups. St Winefride’s won their first game 1-0, then winning again, 5-0 vs Baschurch. This meant that we only need a draw to go through top of our group – however this was not to be, as heartbreakingly, we narrowly missed out, losing 1-0 to Greenfields in the last minutes of the game. We finished second in our group.
Great performance from the team who were a mainly U10 group playing in an U11 tournament. Super debut from Grace and standout performances from Mylo and Patrick. Well done! Our thanks for Jonny for a great day.
