Women's FA Cup Final

Women's FA Cup Final 01

On Saturday May 5th myself and twenty-eight other pupils attended the Women's FA Cup Final accompanied by five teachers. With this year being the second year attending, I had very high hopes in terms of the atmosphere and the game itself and by no means was I disappointed.
 
This was a great way to escape for a little while and experience history being made. Women's football is growing at staggering rates indicated by an increase of 10,000 fans since last year's final and being able to be a small part of this was incredible. After a long wait with the crowd on the edge of their seats, the match finally came to an end with a score of 3-1 to Chelsea ladies.

On behalf of all the girls that came out to watch, I'd like to thank all the staff that gave up their Saturday to make this trip a success, it truly was a memorable one.
