Sutton school's girls' football team win national cup final 9.04.10

Overton Grange School's girls' football team have won the Under 13's National Cup Final.

The six-a-side team came top of the English competition which involved more than 900 schools and over 7000 players.

Twelve-year-old Georgia Heasman scored the winning goal just moments before the end of the first half in the final against Leicestershire's Beaumont Leys School at Wembley Stadium.

Following the win, still clutching the enormous winners' trophy, Georgia said: "It will always be in my mind that I scored a goal at Wembley. That felt amazing, I can't explain my feelings because it is so good I am speechless.

"We are a good team altogether, it isn't down to individuals."

Paddy Bowles, PE teacher at Overton Grange School, said: "The team have worked so hard, to have them as national champions is fantastic."

Ian Birnbaum, Strategic Director of Children, Young People and Learning Services at Sutton Council, said: "I congratulate all the members of Overton Grange girls' football team for their tremendous success in becoming national champions. They are a shining example to others in the borough and across the country.

"I also commend the parents and school staff for supporting and encouraging the pupils in all their hard work and training."

The competition is organised by the Football League Trust and club Community Departments.
