GIRL footballers at Haydon Bridge High School excelled against a high calibre of opposition to finish runners-up in the Tyne and Wear Schoolgirls' U16 Football Championships.

Competing against several larger schools, they lost just one match, against a team from Whickham School in Gateshead, who pipped them to the title. 

The performance of the Haydon Bridge girls saw them named Team of the Week.
