Congratulations to Southwell Strikers u14 girls football team, who recently became joint winners of the Notts FA u14 league.
It was a nail biting end to the season, with victory needed in the final match to clinch the title, jointly with Derby County FC. Despite going 1-0 down to third placed Stanton Ilkeston, the girls battled hard, as they have done all season, and won 3-1.
The team have only lost 1 league match all season. This achievement is all the more remarkable as injuries to players have meant that several matches have been played with a team of only 10.
The girls also progressed to the final of the County Cup, where they were narrowly beaten by close rivals Sherwood-quite an achievement with only 9 players for the final 10 minutes!
The team train on a Monday evening and play matches on Sundays, and are always on the look out for new players. If you are interested in joining, please contact Ted Miller on 07854 624544.
