Success for Wirral Grammar School for Girls in the EFL Girls Cup

18 November 2021

Wirral Grammar School for Girls progressed to the area final of the EFL Girls Cup after winning the chance to represent Tranmere Rovers. 

 

Starting with over 15 schools taking part in the group stages of the competition, four teams progressed to the final for the chance to represent Tranmere Rovers in the area final.

 

West Kirby A and B, Prenton High School and Wirral Grammar all fought it out for a place in the final with West Kirby B and Wirral Grammer being successful.

 

An entertaining final saw West Kirby take an early two goal lead which looked set to see them progress. However, the second half saw a fight back from Wirral Grammar who scored two goals in two minutes and scored the winner right before the final whistle.

 

Speaking to a pupil from Wirral Grammar on winning the tournament, she said:

 

"The competition has been really fun for us to take part in. We started off playing in a group stage and then today we played in a final with the winners from the two group stages. We won all our games to play in the final game and we are so happy to have won.

 

“It was quite nerve wracking but we worked hard for it and I know we deserved to win.

 

“For the school this is a really good achievement and for us as a team it's a really proud moment."

 

Wirral Grammar School for Girls will now go on to represent Tranmere Rovers in the area finals against other EFL Clubs in the North West with the chance to reach and regional final where they would then compete for a place at Wembley. 

 

Good luck to the girls and well done to all the teams involved in this year's tournament. We look forward to working with you all again.
