Preston North End is calling on schools to sign up for the Football League girls and kids cups.
As the new season starts gaining momentum, the coaches, players and backroom staff at Preston North End are working hard to provide a successful season for our fans.
We’ll be doing our very best this season, but we now need your help to try and bring the prestigious Football League Girls Cup and Kids Cup trophies back to Deepdale.
Last year, over 2,000 schools entered the two competitions, with the finalists getting the chance to play at Wembley Stadium.
The road to Wembley starts in September, when our Club will organise local competitions for all local schools who wish to take part.
The Girls Cup is for U13 girls and the Kids Cup is for U11 children and the winning schools will win the right to represent us in the national stages of the tournament and could progress all the way to the final for the prize of a lifetime – playing football at Wembley Stadium.
There are thousands of professional footballers that have never got to play at Wembley, so to be in with a chance of stepping onto the hallowed turf is a spectacular opportunity.
Not even Pele, one of the greatest players of all time, got to play at Wembley Stadium!
Last season, Broughton Business and Enterprise College did a great job of flying the flag for the Lilywhites in the Girls Cup and Sherwood Primary School represented us in the Kids Cup, but we know there are loads of great school teams in our area and many of you will want the chance to show off your skills at the home of football.
So what are you waiting for?
Why not take the chance to go down in history at your school and become local heroes by proudly representing your local League club?!
