In a thrilling Tesco County Cup Final held at Pengwern playing fields, Rhuddlan in North Wales, local team Northop Hall Girls FC emerged as 5-1 winners against Mochdre.
The result means the under-14 girls side progress to the next stage of the Tesco Cup Competition, the Welsh regional finals, to be held at Cardiff University Sports field on Sunday April 19th.
Northop Hall Girls captain Hannah Williams led the way with an outstanding all round performance. Hannah, an avid Manchester United supporter, was a key figure in an impressive team performance. Her workrate, tackling and pinpoint passing were instrumental in the officials decision to award her with the Player of the Match trophy.
The Northop Hall manager commented: "What a great game. The girls worked really hard as a team and are over the moon to have won the game and to be representing North Wales Coast FA in the next round of the Tesco Cup."
The Tesco Cup is part of a wider commitment from Tesco to encourage children to get involved in Sport. Now in its fourth year, Tesco works in conjunction with the FA and local communities to help improve the football skills of young players.
Tesco Cup teams compete in three age groups, Under-13 boys, Under-14 girls and Under-16 girls at County and then Regional level (Area level in Wales) in a bid to become National Champions and, ultimately, to represent their country at the UK Final.
The National Winners in each age category from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will play in the UK Final to be held at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton on Sunday May 24 where they will battle to be crowned overall UK Champions.
The 2007-08 season saw the introduction of girls' tournaments resulting in over 3,300 teams across the three age groups taking part. This figure has risen to over 3,600 teams in 2009, with eight English County FAs entering teams for the first time. In 2008, teams from Northern Ireland won the Under-13 boys and Under-14 girls finals, while Scotland's representatives took the Under-16 girls title.
