England Debut for Poppy

Year 9 King Edward’s student, Poppy has made her Under 15 debut, and we couldn’t be more proud.

They played their first match last week against an Independent Schools’ FA team at Charterhouse in Surrey and drew 2-2, with Poppy scoring one of the goals.

Before the game, the girls were presented with their England shirts.

Poppy started playing football at Stannington First School and then joined Cramlington Town where she was the Manager’s Player of the Year for two successive years.

She then teamed up with Blyth Town, playing for both girls and boys teams. She has also played for Chantry School and joined the Northumberland squad two seasons ago.
