Heartlands have shown that there is only one football team in Birmingham that is really any good, and that’s their year 9 girls’ football team who in 2016 were crowned champions of the Aston Villa U13s’ tournament.

Having played five tough fixtures they faced the might of Barr Beacon in the final. There have been many famous footballers named Toni, but you need to remember just one: Heartlands’ Toni not only scored a cracker, but she made an exceptional challenge to deny the opposition what seemed a definite equaliser. Steve Bruce: sign them all up.
