Saltash.net at Wembley Stadium for the Women's FA Cup final

 

On Saturday 13th May, 38 saltash.net students had the fantastic experience of being part of the record-breaking crowd in attendance at Wembley stadium for the women’s FA Cup final.

The final, which saw Manchester City Women run out 4-1 winners against Birmingham City Ladies, was played in front of a record 35,271 fans.

It was a long day for the students, setting off shortly after 9am and arriving back well after midnight.  They all agreed it was an opportunity of a life time and well worth the tiring travel.

Mr. Budd, who organised the trip, said,

“It was the first trip to Wembley for many students.  With girls’ football having such a high profile at saltash.net, it was fitting that we were part of a record-breaking crowd supporting women’s football at such a prestigious venue.

“Year 9 student Molly Gill spoke to me after the game and told me that she was so inspired by watching the final that it is now her ambition to play in a cup final at Wembley – which is absolutely brilliant. I would like to thank Mrs. Gue, Mr. Lee, Mrs. Cooke, Mr. Pomfret and Mrs. Sloggett for accompanying the students.”
