Congratulations to Prudence and Fleur, who have both been selected for the Independent England Schools Football Team. Fleur and Prudence both play for AFC Wimbledon. Their team has recently been promoted to the JPL league which include teams such as Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Tottenham.
Off their own backs, they put forward their achievements at AFC Wimbledon to the ISFA organisation and then were given the opportunity to trial. From the trials, a selection of 16 outfield players and 2 goalkeepers where made from players throughout the country.
Prudence and Fleur are both delighted and honoured to have been selected for Independent England Schools training squad. They now have a camp at Cambridge in October and a camp at St George’s park in December (a particular highlight for Prudie) then fixtures against the English FA and Wales.
This is a massive step for them and hopefully this will kick start their journeys in representative football. We wish them all the best and are extremely proud of their achievements.
Mr Leigh (Head of Football)
