Shenfield High School was selected by the English Schools Football Association (ESFA) to represent the Football League as ‘ball kids’ at the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley Stadium following the School’s recent and continued outstanding performances in both Essex and National Cup football.
The prestigious honour was awarded to 15 boys and girls of different age groups based on their history of representing the School, including numerous National Cup finalists and winners.
The pupils were allowed pitch-side and behind-the-scenes access to the spectacle, allowing them to soak up the atmosphere at the National Stadium beforehand as well as meeting some football royalty, including Thierry Henry, Gary Neville, Louis van Gaal and Jamie Redknapp.
Shenfield High School will be representing the EFL at a number of Wembley occasions including the Checkatrade Trophy and the Football League play-offs.
