For the first time in history a girl’s football team from Oldham have booked their place in the national final of an English Schools competition.

Crompton House’s Year 8’s have put together an incredible run of form which has seen them win eight games in a row, only conceding once in the process, to progress through the rounds and secure their place in the final.
