A FLINTSHIRE girls' football team is gearing up for their latest challenge in a bid to raise funds. 

Northop Hall girls under 11's are currently raising money ahead of a trip to the Netherlands at the end of May to represent Wales at an event in Oisterwijk, which will see the girls lock horns with sides from Holland and Germany. 

The girls, who have impressively won all their league games so far this season, have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses as this has helped pay for flights, accommodation, and kit.

However, still £2,000 short of their target, the team has decided to take matters into their own hands (or feet!) and, weather permitting, will take part in a sponsored dribble up Moel Famau on Monday, April 10. 

The fundraiser will see the girls dribble footballs up the local landmark whilst carrying buckets, should any fellow walkers wish to donate. 

If you would like to help the girls reach their target, they currently have a live GoFund Me page which can be accessed here. 


Team coach, Dave Parsonage said: “Dribbling a football all the way up Moel Famau will be a big challenge for the girls.

"They are a great bunch and I know they will attack it with their usual determination, and sense of fun.

“The tournament in Holland is a great opportunity for them, playing against teams from different countries.

"It is something they will remember for the rest of their lives.”
