Balby Carr Academy footballers have completed a sponsored run to help pay for the kit they will be sporting for their English Schools FA under-18s cup final.

The girls team booked their prestigious final spot following a comfortable 5-0 win over Thomas Telford School.

Two-time British schools champions Balby will now be gearing up to face Reading’s John Madejski Academy on March 13 (kick-off 5pm) at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena.

And to help them look the part, the squad have finished a sponsored run around Lakeside to help pay towards their kits.

Coach John Buckley, the former boss of Doncaster Rovers Belles, has also secured £200 in sponsorship from Doncaster-based business AGM.
