Talia Sanders (Year 9) selected for the English Schools U15 Football teamPosted on: 17/12/2018
Year 9 student Talia Sanders (9LXM) has been selected for the English Schools Under 15 football team following two gruelling trials.
Talia was first nominated for trials by the school and the Vale of White Horse, and attended her first trial in Bristol where she was selected for the regional team.
Trialists from the North, Midlands, South East and South West of England came together at Stafford Town FC’s Evans Park for their final opportunity to earn a place in the 2018-19 U15 Schoolgirls England squad last weekend. Playing for the South West of England, Talia scored two and got an assist and her impressive performance caught the eye of national selectors. Only the very best trialists were given the privilege of representing the country on an international level and I am extremely proud to hear that Talia has been selected for this incredible honour.
Talia will meet up with her team mates for a training camp in Eindhoven before travelling to Spain later on in the new year to compete in an international tournament.
Congratulations Talia on a phenomenal achievement and best of luck in your upcoming fixtures.
