What a way to end the Week

This afternoon, over twenty year 7 & 8 girls were given the opportunity to meet with members of the DWFC ahead of the Women’s FA Cup tie round home game against Everton this weekend.

Rebecca Salicki and Annabelle Johnson, members of the Durham Women’s Football Team, gave students the opportunity to participate in a questions and answer session as well as seeing the "real" FA Cup.

Our students asked some very searching questions about life on and off the pitch, as well as asking how their sporting journey has helped them to become better players.

Year 7 student - "I thought Rebecca and Annabelle were very inspirational and they gave us lots of information about how to get  better at football.  Thank you for giving us the chance to see the FA Cup close up"

Rebecca and Annabelle are truly inspirational young women and we very much appreciate the time that they gave us this afternoon.

Many thanks to Vision for Education who have sponsored our Academy and have given us ten free tickets plus transport to and from the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley in May.

Good Luck this weekend Durham and we hope to be able to cheer you on in the final.
