Bridgnorth’s very own England footballer Grace Smith has been playing for the England U17 Lionesses in Belarus in the European Cup. Despite a close defeat against Germany in the semi-finals, the England girls beat Norway in the play offs to secure 3rd place – and more importantly – a place in the World Cup in Jordan in the autumn.
On top of this Grace is taking her AS exams – while she’s out there. Well done – Amazing Grace!
Proud mum Sarah Holland said, “I am so excited for Grace – she is coping brilliantly at being away from home, training, playing and revising. But I am very much looking forward to having her home.”
Congratulations from your home town #proud Bridgnorth
