!! Kayla Randell's report on Portugal trip !!

Kayla Randell was selected to go to Portugal with the England Schools training & playing (I mentioned this in an earlier post) this is a report from Kayla of her fantastic trip👍

It was amazing best week of my life I gained a lot of experience and learnt new things every girl put 110% into training and matches that lead to us winning both matches the first one against Sintra girls under 15's winning 6-0 then the second game was against Benfica girls under 16's winning 8-0. Everyone enjoyed there self and to top it off we spent the week with 2 England legends I had 3 training sessions with Rachel brown 1 to 1 which was really good also we had Rachel Yankey who was our team ambassador who was really nice they were both really good role models. At the end of the week about to leave the hotel Rachel brown very kindly gave me her goalkeeper gloves which was a real privilege.
