A massive thank you to every school team who entered our Team Kit competition.
We would have struggled to pick a winner because there were so many deserving teams from right across the UK – so we’re really glad the decision was taken out of our hands. The independent judging panel has chosen Passmores Academy Girls Team from Harlow, Essex, as the winner of a new team kit, sponsored by the credit cards team at Ocean Finance.
In their supporting statement, detailing why they deserved to win, the girls said: “We were the first girls’ team to play 11 aside at Passmores Academy and Harlow schools. We recently won team of the year at our Sports Presentation Evening.
“There were no 11 aside girls’ team in the area until we set one up with Sumners Youth FC. Now we play weekly games in the Essex league and train weekly for an hour.
“We currently have one team kit, which is used by the boys team as well. We would love to have a girls football kit for our own instead of sharing. We feel we deserve this for recognition for our outstanding performances in the Essex cup & Sumners.”
We are so glad the girls can finally buy their own kit and you look forward to seeing a photo or two when the new season kicks off in September!
