Kesteven and Sleaford High School students Abigail Harmston and Aimee Hickingbotham have worked incredibly hard to gain their place in the Under-16 Lincolnshire Girls’ County Football Squad.

This follows two rounds of strong competition against some of the best Key Stage 4 students in the county. Abigail plays football for Boston United Academy and Aimee plays for Doncaster Belles.

The girls train and compete regularly for the Kesteven and Sleaford High School team and hope to emulate the success they experienced last season when they narrowly missed out on being crowned County Cup winners.

The sporting season has started strongly for the players representing the school in the many fixtures already played so far, with wins for the girls’ under-13 football team and also for the Year 8, Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 Netball teams.
