Year 10 Girls Smash School Record!

History was made on Monday 24th October 2016.  Darwen Vale’s year 10 girls football team were playing in the first round of the Lancashire Schools Under 15 Cup.

Last year they made it all the way to the final so expectations were high, but no one could foresee how this encounter would end. Opposing them were girls from Baines High School, Poulton-le-Fylde – an unknown adversary.

Baines arrived ready for battle.

The referee blew his whistle.

From the first kick to the last Baines could not cope with the will, determination and pure footballing prowess of Darwen Vale’s answer to Barcelona.

Baines never let their heads drop and did put up a courageous performance and were a credit to their school but when the dust settled and the referee blew the final whistle….

….the result, 22-0!
