Young Ashleigh Harvey, a member of the St Albans City Youth Girls, Under 14’s team went on holiday with her grandparents in Lanzarote last month and came home a hero.
It was a normal hot day and Ashleigh was on a sun lounger waiting to go for her daily walk down to the village and along the beach. Everyone was enjoying themselves when all of a sudden there was a lot of commotion around the pool. Everyone looked towards the pool and there was Ashleigh diving in the deep end fully clothed. Everyone rushed across to find that she had pulled a toddler from the bottom of the pool.

Apparently the toddler had wandered off on his own and fallen into the pool. Ashleigh had seen him fall and jumped straight into the water. When she got to the pool the toddler was laying on the bottom of the pool.

U11's North and 12's Girls bag tournament wins!
Saturday 11th September saw the HGFPL season kick off with a tournament open to each team playing in the league. The u11 girls, having worked hard to perfect their game at the StACY Summer School, had now grown considerably in numbers, resulting in two teams being entered in the HGFPL at this age group. The North side sailed through the group stages with convincing results over strong sides such as Bury Rangers White, Watford and Bedwell with goals provided by Nicola Gosling (4), Evie Wilkinson (2), Rose Noden (2) and Isabelle Poole. This resulted in the girls finishing as winners of their group and finding themselves pitted against Borehamwood in the semi-final. The South side, however, narrowly missed out on qualifying for the next round, finishing third in their group after fine performances culminating in a win against Harpenden Colts courtesy of newcomer Rhiannon Ellis' spectacular goal.
