Year 6 Girl's represent Leeds United! 24.03.2023 RESULT - WE MADE IT TO THE SEMI FINALS AT LEEDS UNITED!!!!
Leeds United will be represented by St Anthony’s Primary School in the Yorkshire regional event of the Premier League Primary Stars Under-11 (U11) National Girls Football Tournament, in a bid to claim their place at the 2023 finals. Ten regional events will be staged at community facilities across the country, with hundreds of young people representing Premier League, English Football League and National League clubs hoping to win the opportunity to play at our very own Elland Road, in the playing kit of their respective professional football club. The U11 National Girls Football Tournament is one of the competition elements of the Premier League Primary Stars programme. We are so delighted that our girls can represent their local team and enjoy a day out in Sheffield tomorrow accompanied by Miss Staunton Sykes. The girls were brilliantly trained by both Miss Staunton Sykes and Mr Kearney (who is sad to miss this event due to his paternity leave but wishes the girls every success).
Kelly Jackson-Powell, Primary Stars Team Leader, added:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the girls from St Anthony’s Primary School in Beeston, Leeds. This team progressed from the local competition which had over 60 primary schools taking part to the girls Finals Day held at West Riding County FA where they finished in the top two meaning they qualified for the Yorkshire Regional Finals to representing Leeds United.”
