Former pupil Sam Matthews wished Broadstone Middle School well, ahead of their appearance at Wembley Stadium on 30 March, whilst Mid Dorset and North Poole MP Annette Brooke will be at Wembley to cheer the team on.
The team will represent AFC Bournemouth in Sunday’s Football League Girls’ Cup final, which takes place at the iconic venue.
Matthews, who studied at the school before being offered a professional contract by the Cherries, paid a visit as they finalised their preparations for their big day in the capital.
The girls’ under-13s team made it through preliminary rounds of the competition in February before heading to London to take on Watford, Gillingham and Cheltenham.
They won all three games of the area finals without conceding a goal to book a date in the final and a once in a lifetime experience.
“The game is only a few days away now and you can really sense the girls’ excitement,” head of the Community Sports Trust Steve Cuss said.
“They have been looking forward to this ever since the regional finals and they are ready to play at Wembley.
“It was great to have Sam down to meet the team and lend his support. It all helps and makes it an even more special experience.”
Annette Brooke said, “I wish them all the best of luck for the match!” She will be presenting the post match prizes to the girls on Sunday.
