Congratulations to Madison in Year 7 who was part of the winning Blackpool FC Girls U12 team at the weekend who took part in the Skem Ahtletic National Girls Football Tournament, one of the largest all-girls football events in the country and has been running for the last eight years attracting teams from all over the UK and Northern Ireland.

The FA sanctioned competition was held for both days last weekend in association with CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) with all money raised helping to get children free heart screenings.

With more than 1,200 players taking part over the weekend Madison and her team played in eight games beating a team from Glasgow 1-0 in the final to lift the winner's trophy.
