Girls Football Academy

What a fantastic morning we all had at the Stadium of Light celebrating the signing of contracts for our new Girls Football Academy opening September 2017.

We were welcomed by the SAFC Foundation of Light staff and our tour guide Ken Riley, Ken is from Hetton which was very appropriate for the occasion. The final part of our visit was to sign the players onto the academy, this took place in the press room. The girls really enjoyed every part of the visit and were made to feel very welcome.

All parties involved enjoyed the morning at the Stadium, the players were extremely pleased to be a part of the exciting photo opportunities the Foundation of Light gave them. They signed their contracts in the press room, they also had a second photo opportunity to go down onto pitch side and  have further pictures taken. The girl’s parents and carers were pleased to be a part of their success, we as a school are extremely excited for what the future may hold for the players and the academy.
