Accrington and Rossendale College Girls’ Football Academy team have brought home yet another title and trophy, this time being crowned the Women’s English Colleges National Champions.

Following a couple of disappointing results for the Girls’ Football Academy team, this result shows how extremely hard they have worked to bounce back.

The girls won the title yesterday while playing against Balby Carr, the team who they lost out to at the end of the league season.

With an early goal supplied by Evie Manning and finished by Rio Hardy, Accrington and Rossendale beat off Balby Carr’s best attempts to get back into the game after the locals took a 1-0 lead at half time.

Steffi Hardy and Eve Kennerley supplied AccRoss with the finishing three goals, which saw them crowned the winners.

Phil Backhouse, girls Academy head coach said: “I am very proud to have been able to lead such a fantastic group of players this year and proud of what they have achieved. Now we continue our hard work on recruiting next years squad to retain our titles and add those we missed out on.”

The college has trials taking place on Wednesday, May 28, between 1pm and 3pm and also on Saturday, June 5 between 19am and 11.30am.
