Gateshead College retain Elite title

Sunderland WFC midfielder and Gateshead College student Abbey Joice played a key part in helping Gateshead Football Academy retain their British Colleges Sport National Elite Cup Title on Thursday, beating John Madjeski Academy from Reading 5-1.


Abbey (16) travelled with the squad together with Sunderland team mates Erin Middleton, Ellie Hall and Tyler Dodds, to St George’s Park and had an outstanding match.  She scored the second goal of the game from the edge of the box, smashing the ball into the top right hand corner to give Gateshead a well-deserved 2-1 lead.


A delighted Head Coach Melanie Reay said... “To retain this Elite title is a magnificent achievement, but to play the final at St Georges Park was a fantastic experience the girls will have and that memory will stay with them forever. They are a credit to themselves for all the hard work they continue to put in.”


Gateshead have won the Women’s Elite League, English Schools U18 Cup, BCS Elite Cup and now face Accrington or Colchester in the Semi Final National Play Off at Gateshead College Academy For Sport on Wednesday 8th May.


Sunderland WFC are proud partners of Gateshead Sports Academy.
