Charlie triumphs in Top Trumps competition

Warrington Guardian: Charlie Worrall with her trophy Charlie Worrall with her trophy

THEY must be teaching them something special at St Margaret’s CE Primary School after the school got their second national Top Trumps champion in three years.

 

Charlie Worrall became the first girl to win the competition after pipping 50,000 other youngsters from across the country to the crown.


The 10-year-old saw off 12 challengers in the final which was held at the iconic London toy store Hamleys on Saturday.


Speaking after her win she said she felt on top of the world.


Her proud mum Tracey, who has four more children, said: “She has been grinning from ear to ear since lifting the trophy.”


And it was a famous female figure who helped her clinch victory as she won the tournament with a Kylie Minogue card.


Top Trumps bosses whisked Charlie off to the top of the London Eye in a private pod to present her with the winning trophy.


She follows in the footsteps of Lloyd Horne, a former pupil at the Orford school, who won an Olympic themed National Top Trumps tournament in 2012.


Fiona Hortopp, who manages and runs the Top Trumps Schools Tournament for Winning Moves UK, said: "The gender gap has shrunk. “Top Trumps is no longer just about fast cars and planes. We now produce packs on the most popular movies, pop stars and TV crazes.

 

"Girls are just as competitive as boys - and are just as eager as boys to discover crazy facts and figures.


“Very many congratulations to Charlie – a girl has finally ‘trumped’ the boys and it couldn’t have gone to a better champion. She played brilliantly.”

We are very proud of our daughter Charlie. The final was hosted at Hamleys toy store in a very busy Saturday. There were many spectators and the shop was very hot. All the children showed determination through all this distraction. Saturday was a dream come true for Charlie and I am so glad we were there to see her lift the trophy.
