Richardson Named to the ISFA Under 17 Squad
Richardson on the left
Shrewsbury School was to be an excellent venue to host the National Under 17 Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA) trial and an opportunity for players to impress and gain that final selection place into the Full ISFA Under 17 squad.
Mixing the selected players to make two ISFA teams, both sides settled quickly and showed urgency to impress.
After 5 mins, Spencer-McDermott opened the scoring for the ISFA Reds by sweeping his shot home from close range.
Jarryd Richardson equalized soon after for the ISFA Blues, drilling a fine left footed strike into the bottom right corner to make it 1-1.
In the second half, both teams continued to provide attacking qualities and chances on goal in the tricky November conditions.
In the 60th minute, a calm Tom Jones side footed finish restored a 2-1 lead for the ISFA Reds and soon after, Diaz-Rainey extended their lead to make it 3-1.
Alex Neal pulled a goal back for the ISFA Blues, pouncing and rebounding onto Gower’s powerful shot from distance. Though the final score was of little meaning, all the players involved at the final trial, again showed an excellent standard of football and that they fully deserved to be there.
After the Final National Trial, the squad was selected to represent the England Independent Schools Under 17 Representative Team with Richardson named in the squad.

Nesbeth's Florida State Advance to NCAA Elite 8
Leilanni Nesbeth and her Florida State Women’s Soccer teammates advanced to the NCAA Elite 8 with a physical 2-1 win over the USF Bulls in Tallahassee.
USF came out hot getting their first and only goal in the fifth minute. The goal came after three early fouls and on USF’s first of four shots in the game. Katie Kitching flicked one into the middle of the box to Aubrey Megrath who finished for her fifth goal of the season.
The Seminoles could not find the back of the net until the 45th minute when Jaelin Howell earned her fifth goal of the season coming off of a Heather Payne assist, her second. It was the Noles fifth shot of the game and came because of Payne’s great hustle. After being challenged on the right side of the box, Payne regained control and passed it off to Howell right outside of the six-yard box. Howell redirected the ball for the equalizer.
There were two early fouls in the second half by USF before Brianna Blethen fouled Gabby Carle in the box to force a penalty kick. Deyna Castellanos stepped in to take the PK and buried it to give the Noles a 2-1 lead that they would go on to maintain for the rest of the game.
