Premier League 4Sport Football
The girls at STB are coached by Andrew Frost from Stoke City every Friday after school also as part of the Premier League 4 Sport project.
The Under 16 girls’ 6-a-side team took part for Stoke City in the Premier League competition run at Wolverhampton Wanderers Training Academy on Thursday 11th February. Stoke City provided the kit and the girls looked very professional as they ran onto the 3G pitch in the Wolves Dome. They played a round robin competition against teams representing West Brom, Wolves, Derby and Aston Villa.
The games were only 7 minutes one way, on small pitches and every game proved to be a tight affair. In total, STB won 2, drew 4 and lost 2 games so just failed to make the final (West Brom beat Wolves 1-0). The girls did themselves proud and were a credit to STB. Andrew Frost, the coach for the Women’s and Girls teams at Stoke City , commented on the excellent attitude and behaviour of the girls throughout the day.
