VIDEO: England star Rachel Daly's good luck message to former school

A girls football team from Harrogate have received a good luck message from one of England's newest stars.

Rachel Daly's recorded a video and donated medals to her former school, as the Year 7 side prepare to compete in the English Schools Northern Final on Thursday.

Rachel scored on her international debut on Saturday and is expected to feature for England again tonight against Serbia in a Euro qualifier,

Twelve years ago, Rachel was playing in the Rossett side that reached the same stage of the competition.

Now playing in the US with the Houston Dash, she's urged the girls to "bring the trophy back to Rossett".


The girls travel to Cambridge, where victory would earn them a place in the national final.

Year 7 Director of Learning and coach Mike Sweetman said:

"I don't think the girls realise the importance of this game and when they see Rachel in an England track, suit giving them a message saying that she was here in the same situation twelve years ago, I think it's actually made them realise what we're actually faced with on Thursday."
