The EFL girls cup final will be taking place on the Keepmoat Stadium pitch ahead of Tuesday evening’s match vs Oxford United.
Sherburn High School will take on Trinity Academy in the match after both were able to see off tough competition in the qualifying tournaments to reach this point and the winner will go on to represent Doncaster Rovers in the area final which is being hosted by Sheffield United.
Alongside representing Doncaster Rovers, the winning team on Tuesday evening will also get the chance to be mascots for a Doncaster Rovers Belles league game.
The EFL Girls Cup is a nationwide competition and comprises of a six-a-side competition for U13 school children and culminates in a grand final prior to the EFL Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium in April 2022. This year, saw Club Doncaster Foundation hold their largest Girls Cup tournament to date, with 17 teams and a total of 14 secondary schools from across Doncaster and the surrounding areas, taking part.
Sport Development Officer, Heather King, who organised the tournament, said "It's so great to see so many girls take part in the local tournament, especially in the current circumstances and the increase in the girls provision, along with the Lionesses hosting their game v Latvia at the Keepmoat too. Being able to host this tournament again, has been fantastic. To be able to also get the final to be played before the Doncaster Rovers game was a real incentive for the girls that took part and both finalists are excited to be playing their final on the Keepmoat pitch. The feedback from schools on the tournament was really positive, so we're hoping to run some additional tournaments over the coming months."
One school commented: “A fantastic opportunity for our students to participate as a team against other local schools, our students have really missed events like this over the past 18 months”
