Vixens Trio Return Home After Brave Showing In The Czech Republic

England bowed out of the European Women’s Under-17 Championship after a brave defeat to Norway saw them miss out on qualification to the semi-finals.

 

An opening victory against Republic of Ireland and a draw against The Netherlands wasn’t quite enough to secure safe path to the knock-out stages.

The Lionesses needed a point from their final Group B match in Czech Republic to reach the last four.

But, in a contest delayed by four hours due to heavy rainfall, first-half goals from Jenny Kristine Rosholm Olsen and Malin Sunde sent Norway through at England’s expense.

Vixens trio Lauren Hemp (England U-17 captain), Aimee Palmer and Emily Syme were all involved in the tournament.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate the three players on their involvement in the tournament.
