Willow triumph in shootout - 10 Jul 2009 - Women's Football NewsSheffield & Hallamshire FA held their annual South Yorkshire Girls Primary School Tournament at Sheffield United Training Academy with Willow Primary School winning the finals.
 
In the only schools football tournament for girls in the region, the final match between Willow Primary School and Dronfield saw the Doncaster side clinch the final winning 4-2 on penalties, with the match having finished 2-2 after extra time. This is second successive year the school has gone home from the finals with silverware after winning the plate competition in 2008.
 
Doncaster school Holy Family were victorious in the plate competition, beating Wellgate School in the final. The plate competition was again decided on penalties after the final finished without a goal after extra time.
 
The South Yorkshire Primary Schools tournament was launched nine years ago by Sheffield and Hallamshire FA with just 12 teams entering to take part, now over 300 primary schools entered a team into this year's competition, meaning around 3,000 school girls taking part and playing football. Schools taking part in the tournament come from across South Yorkshire with finalists from Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley.
 
All finalists in the South Yorkshire Primary Schools final received a special visit from a legend. The FA Cup Sponsored by E.ON made a guest appearance for the morning much to the delight of all the school competitors and all the teams and managers had a photo opportunity with the trophy between matches. Another special guest appearance for the final was from Sue Smith, who spent the afternoon watching some excellent games of football and then presented the medals and trophies to the competing girls.
 
Julie Grundy, Sheffield & Hallamshire FA Girls and Women's Football Development Officer, said: "This tournament is not only one of the biggest competitions the County FA runs, but it is one of the highest participated in the country. The girls' standard of football has improved year on year as we see more and more girls being given the opportunity to play football in school. School football for girls has come a long way and it's encouraging to see teachers taking coaching courses and I anticipate this competition to get bigger and better each year as more schools enter and the standard continues to improve."
