Weston All Saints PL Primary Stars

Bath City FC will be represented by Weston All Saints Primary School at this year’s Premier League Primary Stars National Girls Football Tournament, being held at Brentford’s Gtech Community Stadium on Thursday 13 June.

The National Girls Football Tournament is one of the competition elements of the Premier League Primary Stars programme.

Primary school children representing 20 Premier League, English Football League and National League clubs will take part in a group-stage competition, before knockout matches commence to determine the winners. Brighton and Hove Albion are the current title holders having won the tournament in 2023.

Richard Masters, Chief Executive of the Premier League, said: “The Premier League Primary Stars Football Tournament is a great opportunity for young people to have their own Premier League matchday experience, proudly representing their clubs by playing in their team kit. We hope that everyone taking part in both the Mixed National and National Girls’ Finals at Brentford’s Gtech Community Stadium has a brilliant time participating in what I am sure will be an exciting and competitive day of football.”

Thousands of girls representing more than 100 professional football clubs from across England and Wales competed for their chance to represent their respective clubs in this year’s tournament. Participating teams have already won regional heats, earning themselves the chance to play on the pitch at the Gtech Community Stadium, in the playing kit of their football club.

The tournament will give those taking part the opportunity to experience the life of a Premier League footballer for the day and compete under the watchful eye of Premier League and Women’s Super League match officials. 

“We are delighted that the girls from Weston All Saints Primary School will get the chance to represent Bath City FC and Bath City FC Foundation alongside some of the biggest football clubs in England. Last year our charity worked with 3,500 people across Bath and North East Somerset and we see on a daily basis how the power of football can improve people’s lives for the better.” James Carlin, CEO, Bath City FC Foundation
