Congratulations to U16 Girls who finished Runners Up at the National Indoor Finals over 20th & 21st January. The Girls topped Pool B after a 1-1 draw with Clifton, 5-1 win over Wakefield, 4-3 wins over Marlow & a 4-1 win over Harleston Magpies. In the Semi Final the Girls came up against the formidable Surbtion who boasted several Internationals. With the scores level at 2-2 and with a minute to play Sophie Thompson broke out with the ball and managed to send the Girls into the Final where Marlow awaited for a re-match. The Girls took an early lead following a Thompson deflection in the first half, however it was not to be for our Girls who lost out 2-1 following a Marlow come back in the second half.
Although the Girls might be disappointed following the final, we are very proud of their achievement.
James Terry Junior Head Coach “To finish 2nd in the Country is a fabulous achievement from this group. They never fail to impress when they represent the club and do it so impressively on the National Stage. Their Semi-Final performance was outstanding, to beat a side boasting that many internationals took some doing but we had every belief we could do it. It is disappointing to lose any Final but once the dust settles the girls will feel a great sense of pride from this experience that will live fondly in the memory for years to come”
