The FA kindly gave the English Schools’ FA permission to use the official FA Cup balls and bag to make the U13 Minute Maid Cup Draw at Craven Cottage, Fulham Football Club yesterday lunchtime.
Ed Balls, the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families was assisted in making the draw by England World Cup winning legend George Cohen. George represented England 37 times between 1964 and 1967, while amassing an impressive 459 appearances for Fulham Football Club around that period, scoring six goals in the process.
Shenfield High School girls (Essex) and Queens School boys (Hertfordshire) teams were on hand to witness the event which is recognised as the largest schools’ football competition in Europe. 1700 boys’ teams and 1100 girls’ teams entered this tournament back in September, which is now at the last 64 stage in both categories.
