Man Utd vs Everton WSL Trip

By 7 February 2023No Comments

On Sunday a group of 25 girls travelled to Leigh Sports Village to watch Manchester United vs Everton in the Women’s Football Super League. There was a great level of excitement on the way down at the prospect of meeting some of the players, and the students were eager to watch some of the Euros winners in action. On arrival, we were lucky to secure front row seats which gave us a brilliant view of the football on display. Although the game finished goalless, it was not short of action. United dominated the whole game, hitting the woodwork 3 times and having the ball cleared off the line twice. At the final whistle, the girls raced down to the tunnel to try and meet some of their favourite players and to their delight, the majority of the squad took time to sign their shirts, take selfies and have a few conversations with the students. Some of the girls couldn’t believe their luck that they managed to get pictures and autographs from some of the best female footballers in the world!  Mary Earps, Alessia Russo and Ella Toone were the most popular players the girls wanted to meet and to their credit they spent nearly half an hour walking around and engaging with the fans. A brilliant day and a fantastic experience for the students to meet some of their favourite players and some Euros winners!
