County joy for Teal

7 June 2022

Footballer Teal recently celebrated county success.

The 15-year-old was part of the Lancashire Under 16s team which won the English Schools National Final recently after they beat Kent 4-1 in the Inter County Cup at Stoke City’s bet365 Stadium.

“It was fantastic to play at such a big stadium, it was a good experience,” said Teal who said she was ‘happy’ when she saw her name on the team sheet.

The left back/left winger had to come through tough trials to secure a place in Lancashire Under 16s after playing for Lancashire Under 14s.

She used to play for Euxton Girls team and then captained Adlington Juniors boys team before moving onto Blackburn Rovers where she still is.

“I played right wing for Lancashire but I don’t mind where I play,” said Teal. “I enjoy playing for Blackburn and my dream is to play for England.”
