Year 11s Jodie Wells and Charlotte Bond were celebrating their football team’s double win last weekend.
Both girls play for Portsmouth Younited U18s, who were crowned Hampshire Girls Youth Football League and Cup winners last weekend when they beat Oakley U18s from Basingstoke.
Jodie is goalkeeper and has been voted Player of the Winchester League (which covers all players 8-18) two years running. She and Charlotte (centre midfield) have been invited to trials at Chichester Ladies (a Premier League South Division team) in the summer.
Jodie said, “Charlotte and I are playing two years up with Portsmouth. The team has had a fantastic season. Also, last summer we won the Southampton Cup against an American team - Pittsburgh Academy.” Charlotte added, “I plan to study a BTEC in Elite Football at Portsmouth College next year.”
