Three Ribble Valley footballers have earned selection for Lancashire Schools’ Under 14s.

Cara Milne-Redhead, of Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, and Amy Edmondson and Chloe Blackburn, both from Bowland High, all play for Burnley FC Girls and Ladies, and were three of seven players from the club to make the squad.

Cara, Amy and Chloe all made their county debuts for the Red Rose Under 14s recently in a 2-1 victory against Staffordshire Schools, with Cara on target with a 25-yard strike, which was followed up by a coolly-taken penalty against Cleveland.

With the County receiving a first round bye for the Northern Counties Schools Football Association and English School’s Football Association (ESFA) Under 14s trophy, all the players will look to feature against Shropshire Schools this month.
