Anna Shaw's second half strike proved to be the match winner as Cronk-y-Berry beat Kewaigue 1-0 in the final of the eighth Isle of Man Primary Schools' Girls' Shield.
This means that Cronk-Y-Berry have won this trophy on five consecutive occasions and it is now becoming a permanent feature at the school.
The grass roots of women's football appear to be in healthy condition and there was evidence of this with plenty of endeavour, commitment and excitement from all teams as the tournament unfolded.
Twenty teams entered, the format being four groups of five with the winner of each group going through to the semi finals and then the final.
In the group stages, Kewaigue, Phurt Le Moirrey, Arbory and Cronk-y-Berry won their groups respectively with maximum points. Kewaigue's Hannah McEwan scored the only goal in the semi against Phurt Le Moirrey whilst in the other match, Cronk-Y-Berry defeated Arbory 3-1. Anna Shaw (2) and Melissa Bell found the net for the Douglas school with Becky Corkish replying for the southerners.
After the final, IOMFA Women's Football Development Officer Kerry Penswick presented the awards. Foxdale Primary won the Fair Play award with Headmaster Stuart Lambie collecting medals and some kit on behalf of his school. Cronk-Y-Berry's Melissa Bell received the tournament's leading goalscorer award with 10 goals. Medals were then presented to the winners and runners-up of the competition to complete an enjoyable afternoon of football.
