Newcastle United lifted the Welsh International Super Cup in Aberystwyth, beating Welsh side TNS Ladies after extra time in the Final.
The first team had to work very hard against a resilient TNS side who had drawn 0-0 with the Magpies in the group stages but it was extra time strikes from Rachel Furness, Stacy Crooks and Jane Latif that ensured the magnificent trophy would be coming back to the North East for the first time.
Newcastle`s reserves defeated Hereford Phoenix 4-0 in the final of the Welsh Challenge Cup, with goals by Toni Laurie, Sam Etherington, Natalie Henderson and Laura Fenwick to make it a pre-season double for the Magpies.
Rob Atkin, NUWFC Head Coach, said: "All of the players and staff have been a credit to Newcastle United in the four days they have been away in Wales. Their fitness, and the way they have performed on the pitch, have got them through a tough challenge, everyone has commented on their professionalism on and off the field which is a big part of these trips, especially for the new players coming in.
"The organisers Team Tours Direct deserve a lot of credit for the facilities and playing surfaces. They are the best we have encountered in any tournament, which makes it a lot easier for the players to play the way we encourage in training."
