Bexhill College Women's Football Academy in association with Chelsea Foundation

Bexhill College women's football academy, in association with Chelsea Foundation, won its first Sussex Schools' U19 league fixture.

Casey Sands scored four goals and Lillian Tucker three as Bexhill College triumphed 7-2 against Collyer's, from Horsham.

Bexhill College started quickly and Sands struck a 20-yard shot into the roof of the net. With confidence high, Tucker added a second goal.

The longer the game went on, Bexhill College grew stronger and continued to create chances through creative midfielders Mia Hyland, Holly Taberer and Freya Hogg.

Lillie McSweeney, Chloe Sutton and Kayleigh Ford made their college debuts in the back four, marshalled by the impressive Molly Kemp.

The academy, meanwhile, was given complimentary match day tickets for Chelsea Ladies' first team match against three-time German champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The women's academy travelled by coach to Chelsea Ladies' new first team ground at Kingsmeadow, Kingston, where they enjoyed watching Chelsea secure a 1-0 win.

Sports Academy Director, Mark Linch, said: "This was a fantastic day out for the academy and for some students, this was their first ever experience of a professional match. The highlight for many of the girls was meeting some of the first team players and having selfies".

Team - Abigail Lee, Chloe Sutton, Lillie McSweeney, Molly Kemp, Kayleigh Ford, Lillian Tucker, Mia Hyland, Holly Taberer, Ettianne Wilson, Sharne Chapman, Casey Sands, Rebekah Brunton, Alice Gordon, Anna Wolford, Freya Hogg, Nikkita Smith.
