Talented twins Rio and Steffi Hardy played starring roles for the British Colleges team on a recent tour to Estonia.

The British Colleges team beat Estonia Under-19s 2-0 in their first game, before drawing 1-1 with Estonia’s Under-21s and then beating Latvia’s Under-21s in their final game.

Rio scored in all three games and was named the Manager’s Player of the Tour, while twin sister Steffi played the full 90 minutes in all three outings.

It’s been a memorable month for the Centre of Excellence Under-17 duo, who both started for Rovers in the final of the FA Girls Youth Cup at MK Dons, in which Rio scored Rovers’ consolation effort in a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.
