Shenfield High School's under-12 girls won the Mid Essex five-a-side championships


Shenfield High School’s under-12 girls won the Mid-Essex five-a-side Championships on home soil before the end of term.

The hosts fielded two teams and saw the As win all three of their group matches.

The B team drew with Becket Keys and Chelmer Valley, then beat Ursuline 1-0 thanks to Abbie Harding’s strike to top the group.

Both Shenfield teams then met for the right to progress to the regional finals at the Copper Box Arena and goals from Ellie Moore and Elise Jennings sealed a 2-0 win for the A team.

The boys were unbeaten in the group stage of their own competition and faced Great Baddow in the final, having beaten them 3-1 earlier on. But a tense game was decided by a last-gasp Baddow goal.

Shenfield are into the last 32 of the National nine-a-side competition though and head of year seven football Matt Hall said: “It has been an exciting first term for our boys and girls. It is going to be an exciting new year.”
