Wirral Grammar Girls School represented Tranmere Rovers in the Utilita EFL Girls Cup Northern Area Finals on Thursday afternoon as they reached the last four of the competition.
Bebington-based Wirral Grammar won the local schools’ tournament in November which saw them earn the right to wear TRFC colours in the Regional round, which was held at Leigh Sports Village.
Organised by Wigan Athletic Community Trust, Wirral Grammar, coached by teacher Miss Callan, were drawn against Carlisle United, Morecambe, Blackpool and Accrington Stanley in their group.
After losing their first fixture against Carlisle, they went onto beat Morecambe 3-0 and Blackpool 4-0 before ending the group stage with a 1-1 draw with Accrington.
The results meant that TRFC advanced as group winners to the semi-finals.
They would go up against Blackburn Rovers for a place in the final, however a 2-1 defeat saw them exit the tournament.
Bolton Wanderers were crowned champions and will be the North West representatives in the next round.
And Miss Callan was proud of the performance from her side.
Miss Callan said: "I'm really, really proud of the girls and they've done really well to represent the Club and the School.
“We have enjoyed our day and we are pleased that we were able to represent Tranmere Rovers Football Club.”
Well done to Wirral Grammar for reaching the semi-finals of the Utilita EFL Girls Cup, and doing Tranmere Rovers proud.
We looking forward to working with all the schools again next year.
