AFC Mansfield

Tuesday, November 25, 2014


On Sunday 23rd November 2014 our AFC ladies u14's and 16's travelled to Wembley to witness history being made by the England ladies squad finally being able to play at the new Wembley! They were up against European champions and favourites for the World Cup 2015 Germany so we all knew it wouldn't be an easy game.
The quality of football being played was outstanding and even though England lost 3-nil being able to witness the way both teams played was inspiring not just for our girls but for the 55,000 ticket holders! A record crowd at any ladies game!
The girls and parents all had a fantastic day and I believe it will inspire our u14's girls to drive forward with the fantastic season we are already having sitting 3rd in the league just 5 points behind leaders Nottingham Forest and it must have been a great realisation for our ex AFC u16's player Millie Clarke who now plays for Derby County academy who feed players directly into the ladies England squad!
History making moments like this just go to show anything is possible for any one of our girls if they want it enough! Who knows how many of our girls we will see there in the future.......
