LOCAL GIRL IN ENGLAND CUP FINAL WIN

Fourteen-year-old Priory LSST student Olivia Clark playing in goal for the English Schoolgirls Under 15s managed to keep a clean sheet as her team beat the Republic of Ireland 1-0 in the final of the Bob Docherty international football tournament held in Wales over the weekend.

After victories over Scotland and Wales in the early stages of the tournament England overcame strong opposition in the final thanks to Olivia’s efforts in goal and some staunch defending.

Olivia’s mum, Gail said: “It was the most nerve-wracking experience of my life. She made us all very proud.”
