A girls football team from the Waterside were last night treated to an open bus top tour.

The under-11 team from Orchard Junior School, in Dibden Purlieu, recently won the English Schools FA/Danone Nations Cup finals at Aston Villa’s training ground in Tamworth.

Orchard had previously been crowned Southampton district winners, Hampshire champions and South West regional champions.

At the national finals, they progressed from their group to the semi-finals where they beat a Nottingham school 1-0 in extra time.

They then played a team from Manchester in the final and won 2-1.

Congrats - I remember quite a few of Orchard's girls being better than the boys when we (Hythe) played them.
