Anna Phillips, a Y12 student at Bolton School, joined up with the England Women’s U17 Squad at the UEFA Phase 1 Euro Qualifiers held in Bosnia over Half-Term. 

Whilst in Bosnia and Herzegovina the squad won all 3 games, scoring 10 goals and conceding only 1 goal. The first game, against Croatia, saw a final score of 2-0 to England, the second match was against the hosts Bosnia and Herzegovina, the final score being 4-0 to England and then the final game against Belgium ended in a 4-1 win. Anna played in the first two games and, according to the FA Education Coordinator: “…should be proud of the contribution she made to the overall squad success during this campaign.” 

Throughout the 11 day event, in addition to the football training, football matches, preparation and review meetings and formal education sessions, Anna also had some other learning experiences. The squad visited the War Childhood Museum in Sarajevo. The historical museum presented the experiences of children who lived through the war in Bosnia and was a collection of feature diaries, toys, photographs, items of clothing and a variety of other objects donated by war survivors. All the items were presented alongside first-person recollections from the individual who donated them. Anna also listened to a match fixing presentation led by a FIFA representative to help provide information, raise awareness and prevent match fixing.
