    Jan 2017 - QEGS finished runners up in the in the Kinder+ Sport EFL Girls Cup

    Queen Elizabeth Grammar School did Derby County proud as they finished runners up in the in the Kinder+ Sport EFL Girls Cup last week.

    The event, staged on Thursday 12th January, saw ten Under 13 school teams from across the country head to Gresham Sports Park in Nottingham to represent their local EFL clubs.

    The winners of the day would progress to the regional finals in February for a chance to play on the pitch at Wembley Stadium ahead of the Checkatrade EFL Trophy Final.

    QEGS gained the chance to represent Derby County following a convincing win in the local final, hosted at Powerleague in Derby by the Derby County Community Trust.

    The area final started well for QEGS, cruising through the group stages with wins against Notts County, Sheffield United, Mansfield Town and a draw against Chesterfield to head into the semi-finals.

    The bar and post came to Peterborough’s aid on a couple of occasions as QEGS pushed to break the deadlock however the Posh held their nerve when a chance came and went on to win the final 1-0.

    Following the Area Final, Laura from the Derby County Community Trust said: "We had a great day at what has been a really well organised tournament by the Notts County Football in the Community team."

    "We were disappointed not to progress; however full credit goes to Peterborough who played really well throughout the day and took their chances in the final. Good luck to them at the Regional Final, we are hoping to see them go all the way."

    "Getting to the Area Final was a fantastic achievement for the girls from QEGS. They should all be really proud of themselves, they have been a credit to Derby County Football Club."
