Ovingham Middle School's U13 girls side claimed an incredible victory at a national football tournament earlier this year. 

On Friday 24 May, the Prudhoe school were represented by their U13 girls squad at the Hawthorns, home of Championship side West Bromwich Albion. 

Over 100 schools from across the country entered the PlayStation Small Schools national cup, but the final saw Ovingham take on King's Oak Academy from Bristol. 

After going 1-0 down, Ovingham equalised through their captain after an excellent piece of opportunism, before a wonder strike from one of their star attackers, who had 25 goals in the tournament overall, sealed an impressive 2-1 victory. 

The boys side had also won the tournament last year, while the girls side enjoyed fantastic success in Barcelona last year. 

Head of PE Deborah Goodwin said: "These are such amazing achievements from such a small school. The girls team has been outstanding across their four years at OMS but this year winning both the World Cup and the national finals they have exceeded all expectations. As the head of PE at the school I couldn’t be prouder of the girls, they are great ambassadors for the school and I have loved working with them, the support from the girls parents has also been amazing."
