Our Lionesses League is one of the longest running inter-school girls football leagues in the county and is made up of the Orchard schools and friends.

 

Established in 2018, the league has made girls football visible at participating schools. Over the years, girls of all abilities have enjoyed taking part with many going on to join local teams and even represent the county. The results in the league are unpublished with the focus on getting girls involved with and enjoying their football. 

The Demi Edwards Cup is new for 2022/23, adding a competitive element for those girls who have now moved through their primary school education with girls football being the norm rather than an exception. A knock-out cup competition, it is named after Herefordian Demi Edwards who currently plays for QPR Women and has represented her country numerous times for the British Armed Forces women's football team - an inspiration to all of our pupils.

 

Matches are 15 minutes each way and 7-a-side, with a maximum squad size of 9 which must include 2 players from LKS2.
