FEMALE footballers at Bishops' High School are celebrating winning the Chester Girls High School League.
The seven-a-side competition was for pupils in Years 7 and 8 and saw teams play each other on a monthly basis over the course of the season, picking up points along the way.
The six schools involved - Bishops' High, Upton, Christle- ton, The Queen's School, The King's School and Blacon - went head to head at the Cheshire County Sports Club in Upton on Tuesday for the final matchday.
There was a tense finish as Bishops, who had gone into the last round of matches level with Upton and Christleton, snatched the title from their city rivals.
Upton ended up second and Christleton third.
As a bonus for Bishops, their star striker Rachel Jones won the top goalscorer award for her 10-goal haul and received a pair of 'Footie Chick' football boots designed specifically for girls.
Cheshire football development officer Debbie Kendall said: 'There were more than 60 girls who took part over the course of the league.
'Girls football is growing in popularity and this league is a great way for them to get into the game.'
