30th November 2020 — The Year 6 and 7 pupils were selected to play after competing in the 'Prep Schools’ District Football Trials', which took place at Merrist Wood College in October.

The set-up, known as the Prep Schools' Lions, is run by teachers from across the region and offer pupils from over 60 Prep Schools the opportunity to access high quality coaching and showcase their skills at representative level. There were 247 Under 11 boys that attended the morning and a record of 79 girls in the afternoon.

Following the trials, all of the children we sent were selected to take part in the World Youth Cup (Gothia Cup), which is a fantastic international youth tournament held in Sweden.

Good luck to the Year 7 and 8 boys who have their trials in November.

Jack Parker, Head of Boys' Sport for Stroud, says: “This is the second time there will be a girls’ team within each age group as well as the boys’ teams. It is a great opportunity to showcase the talent we have at Stroud. We wish them all the best and look forward to hearing about how they get on."
