A YEAR 7 pupil at Rendcomb College, Jemima Lister, has been invited to represent Swindon Town Girls Centre for Football Excellence (CFFE) in the Barcelona Girls Cup in June 2018.

Eleven-year-old Jemima has been playing football only since 2016.

Jemima currently plays for Ashton Keynes YFC U12s on a Saturday, while also playing for Swindon Town Girls CFFE during the school holidays.

For two years in a row, Jemima trialled at Swindon Town and was selected for the team.

Jemima’s mum said: “It’s fantastic to see Jemima having fun playing football. All she really wanted to do was to have a kickabout with her friends and now she’s travelling out to Barcelona to play.”

Swindon Town have their first game of the season during this coming half term against Luton Town while Ashton Keynes YFC currently sit top of their league, with Jemima being pivotal in central midfield and attack.

The Barcelona Girls Cup is an international tournament, held in Santa Susanna, on the coast of Barcelona.

The tournament will take place over two days with at least five games being played against teams from across Europe.

The players are also given the chance to visit the Camp Nou, home of FC Barcelona.

Swindon Town Girls CFFE is a pathway to Swindon Town LFC, who are currently playing in the Women’s Premier League.
