OPPOSITION teams are up against real girl power after four life-time friends have all been selected for an area football squad.

Northallerton College students Kayleigh Arneil, Jess Shuker, Ellie Readman and Hannah Kirk have all been selected for the Hambleton and Richmondshire girls’ area squad.

The girls have all played together for as long as they can remember and also play for Brompton.

“We pull together really well as a team because we have played for so long and recognise our strengths and weaknesses,” said Hannah.

“We performed well during the trials at Bedale and are thrilled to have been selected.

Hannah has ambitions to play professionally by securing a football scholarship at a US university.
