A GIRLS’ football team from Ashington is heading to London to represent the north of England after winning area and regional tournaments in the Tesco Cup.

The girls from Hirst Park Middle School Year 6 beat competition from teams as far afield as Manchester and Liverpool without conceding a goal.

The players will compete for the national under-11 girls’ title at Watford FC on Saturday.

To enable the girls to make the trip they desperately need sponsorship and any organisations or businesses who can make a donation are asked to call the school on (01670) 813111.
