Participation | 'Gas Girls' represented at Premier League Primary Stars Tournament
Bristol Rovers were represented in the very first Premier League Primary Stars National Girls Tournament at Vicarage Road, the home of Watford FC on Wednesday.
The girls from St Michael's C of E Primary School won their local and regional finals as Bristol Rovers and enjoyed a fantastic day, playing against other Schools representing Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United.
Bristol Rovers finished second in Group D after securing two wins and a draw but losing to eventual semi-finalists Newcastle United.
The girls were also presented the Premier League 'Fair Play' award for their superb attitude throughout the tournament.
Bristol Rovers Women's Club Secretary, Matthew Davies said: "Everyone at Bristol Rovers are incredibly proud of the girls from St Michael's C of E Primary School. Participation is one of our four key areas with the 'Gas Girls' and to see the girls enjoying this incredibly unique opportunity was wonderful to see. I'd like to thank Nick and Chris from the School for their support and encouraging the girls in their school to continue playing football."
