EFL Girls Cup Final 'unforgettable', says Jordan Nobbs

2 April 2019

England and Arsenal star Jordan Nobbs says it was a privilege to be involved in the EFL Girls Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

The midfielder was part of a special surprise for finalists St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, representing Sunderland, and Mangotsfield School, representing Bristol Rovers, giving the two sides a team talk and posing for photos before kick-off.

The game was played under the famous arch at Wembley in the build-up to the Checkatrade Trophy Final, with fans inside the national arena showing their support for the players. In the end, it was St Joseph's who lifted the trophy, and Nobbs says it was a day the girls will never forget.

"It’s incredible, 6,000 girls take part in this competition every year, and the fact that these girls get to play on a pitch that women and men dream of, it’s amazing," she said.

"To walk up those stairs and pick up a trophy will be an unforgettable moment for the winners, and it’s great for me as well to be involved.

"It was great to go into the dressing room and hopefully give them a bit of inspiration and present the trophy to the winners.

"Hopefully, young girls will see this and be inspired to play football and dream of playing in an amazing stadium like Wembley."
