Grace crowned top-scoring player

26 June 2020  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in: ,

Congratulations to Grace Dobson who, with 49 goals under her belt, has been crowned this season’s top-scoring player for Darlington Football Club’s under 11 squad. Grace, a Year 6 student at Leyburn Primary School, is joining us in September and is really looking forward to playing football at school.  A keen athlete, Grace runs most evenings as part of her training programme to be match-fit at all times.

Grace has been playing football since she was five and has been with Darlington Football Club  for 18 months, having been invited to go for two training sessions before being selected for the team. She commits to two training sessions a week with a game every Saturday morning. Her position is left wing and having clocked up almost 50 goals this season she is a force to be reckoned with!

Grace, who was also picked to play for the Darlington County team this season,  said: “I love playing football and I hope to play for England one Day!”

Miss Abbey, Lead Teacher for PE, said: “This is great news! Grace’s commitment to training and her tremendous performance on the pitch are impressive.  She will be a great asset to the sports teams at Richmond School, especially the football team. I look forward to welcoming Grace to the PE Department in September.”
