Romford pupils win Essex finals at Copper Box

Marshalls Park’s under-13 girls were crowned Essex Schools’ futsal champions at the Copper Box Arena and will represent the county at the regional finals in April.

The Romford pupils won four of their five group games, drawing with local rivals Frances Bardsley, to reach the semi-finals.

After taking the lead against East London Science School, the Park girls played defensively and Lilly Hadrava made a fine stop before finally being beaten.

Extra time could not produce a winning goal, so the tie went to a penalty shoot-out, with Hadrava saving four spot-kicks as Poppy LeBeau and Jessie Ellis converted to send Park through.

Ellis put Park into an early lead against Heathcote School in the final and, with tension running high, Hadrava’s long throw sent Ellis away to seal a 2-0 win for a spot in the regional finals on April 8.

Coach Lyndsay Whitley said: “The girls played fantastically and while they are relatively inexperienced in the realms of futsal, showed a fantastic adaption to the game throughout the day and excellent sportsmanship.

“They were a credit to the School and I am very proud of each of them.”

Marshalls Park: Lilly Hadrava, Amber LeBeau, Poppy LeBeau, Ella Pilley, Jessie Ellis, Ellie Cunningham, Kelsey Skilbeck, Yasmin Parkes.
