WEMBLEY – WOMENS FA CUP FINAL
This year Marriott Wildcats were selected to walk around the pitch at Wembley before the Womens FA Cup Final.
The girls (and staff) were very excited to be going to such an iconic venue for a Cup Final.
When we arrived we had some time to get lots of photos outside the stadium before entering.
We were very excited about how good our seats were and all the lovely Wildcats goodies that where for each Wildcat.
The Wildcats lined up in the tunnel before the parade with all the other participating clubs.
The Wildcats looked very smart in their kit and waving the banners we had taken with us.
They walked around the pitch, waving to the crowd and enjoying the atmosphere in the stadium.
National Anthem played, everyone stood respectfully for this (although no singing).
The Match – a brilliant fast game of end to end football which saw Manchester City Crowned Champions at the end.
This was a great day out, everyone had a fabulous time.
The Y3S competed in a Tag Rugby Competition being run by Leicester Tigers.
This was a culmination of Leicester Tigers Coaching in school.
