The rain stayed away for a day at least, which allowed the first U13 GDST Football Rally to take place as scheduled on Tuesday 15th October. It was a great event which showcased much talent and I'm sure it will be the first of many GDST Football Rallys.
Royal High School fielded a team of enthusiastic, keen, determined young players led by Captain Ruby Butterfield, who were thrilled to have the opportunity to play football together at a tournament of such a good standard. They represented the Royal High School with pride and passion to reach the Quarter Final. They lost their Quarter Final 4-2 to Birkenhead but they can hold their heads high as they performed well all day, playing some impressive football and their attitude was exemplary.
