Champions stuff: DESC

Dubai English Speaking College (DESC) will be hoping their success continues on the field this term after their domination in the girls’ DASSA football league.

The Dubai school saw their Under-12, U-14 and U-16 sides reign supreme in the Division 1 competition. Their U-12s, captained by Faye Alam were unbeaten with four victories from five matches in the league. They also finished runners-up in the DASSA 7’s.

Their U-14s and U-16s went one step further with perfect league records. The U-14s, led by Lauren Hibbert, won all their six games as well as triumphing in the DASSA 7’s Cup.

Jessica Cullen’s U-16 side lifted the league trophy with five straight wins while also emerging DASSA 7’s Cup champions.

DESC even came close to winning the U-19 title but missed out to Repton School on goal difference.

For Paul Barratt,  head of football, he had nothing but praise for each and every squad player.

“Our girls’ football programme gets bigger and better every year,” he said. “It’s an incredible achievement lifting three of the Division 1 League trophies and one the girls should be proud of. Here at DESC, we have superb football facilities for our students and a programme which helps them develop their potential as a football player, and more importantly, their overall characteristics.”
