Girls' team from Our Lady's Bishop Eton Primary will represent Liverpool at PL Primary Stars Football Tournament today

A girls' football team from Our Lady's Bishop Eton Primary School will continue their impressive journey when they step out at Molineux for the 2019 Premier League Primary Stars Football Tournament this morning.

Some of the girls from Liverpool had yet to kick a ball when the school's team was formed in Year 3. But four years on, they will represent Liverpool FC at the national school tournament.

"Everyone in this team has their own part because we all get on really well as friends, that just makes it so much easier to play," says Chesca, a defender.

Matchday experience

Our Lady's Bishop Eton will be one of 40 schools who have qualified to represent the 20 Premier League teams in the girls and mixed competitions at Wolverhampton Wanderers' Molineux Stadium.

On the day, as well as playing in their club kit, the teams will walk out from the tunnel to the Premier League anthem while the matches will be refereed by PL match officials. 

Just being one of the schools to have gone through from more than 1,600 that took part in qualifying, Our Lady's Bishop Eton realise that they have achieved so much.

"I just want us to try our best," says defender Ciara. "Even if we don't win, we've already come so far, it doesn't matter."

Positive impact

As well as showcasing talent on the pitch, the event also celebrates the work of PL Primary Stars, which uses the appeal of football inspire children and support teachers in more than 16,000 schools across England and Wales.

"Liverpool Foundation and Primary Stars has had a huge impact for our school," says Our Lady's Bishop Eton deputy head teacher Jan Fearnehough.

"We are seeing this through the confidence, self-esteem of the children, the teamwork, the working together, it's been such an asset for our school."
