Libby's Trip to Dallas

News-MontageYear 8 student, Libby Skinner, travelled to Dallas as part of an 18-strong squad in April with Millwall Football Club. 

She stayed with a family for a week, and competed in a tournament against 200 other teams including Chelsea & Liverpool, starting virtually every game. 

Libby, who plays striker and left wing back, also played friendly matches against many American and Australian teams. 

‘There was an opening ceremony,' said Libby. 'It was in a big stadium with all the teams who were playing and as you may've guessed we were the loudest ones because we were singing chants! It was so much fun having the chance to play against elite footballers from across the world.’ 

Libby started playing football when she was 9, and quickly progressed from Maidstone to Gillingham and then Charlton, and has recently been given a second season’s contract with Millwall, who hope to get her into the England squad when she’s old enough. 

Valley Park would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Libby on her recent achievement.
