SJD's Lucy reaches women's U17s Euros

Sir John Deane’s student, Lucy Roberts returned to college today after competing for England in the UEFA Women’s U17 Championships, in Lithuania.

The Young Lionesses recently made it to the final four – after starting as one of 46 teams in the competition, beating Italy 4 – 0 and drawing with Poland in the group stages.

The team narrowly missed out on the final and a World Cup place after being beaten by Germany in their semi-final match and Finland in their World Cup play-off. 

Lucy’s personal tutor, Louise Long said: “Lucy has done tremendously well to get so far in the competition. She comes back to college with her head held high and we are all extremely proud of her and the team’s achievement.”
