The Cumbrian weather could not deter the enthusiastic girls from the local primary schools in Kendal who took part in the girls football tournament run by Queen Katherine School.
Ten teams from the local primary schools attended the festival and enjoyed some coaching from the Year 10 Sports Leaders before playing in a World Cup style tournament.
The festival was played in two groups of five teams. Both groups very competitive and tight at the top but Brazil (Castle Park) and Spain (Stramongate) were eventual winners and went through to the final.
Vicky Jones (QKS SSCO) said: "The final finished 0-0 after extra time and with it being too windy to keep the ball on the penalty spot, it was decided to announce a draw!"
Both teams will go on to represent the Queen Katherine cluster in the annual "Champions of Kendal" match against the winners of the Kirkbie Kendal cluster.
The Charter Standard Clubs in the area are targeting younger girls to get involved in football in the South Lakes. The South Lakes Girls League currently organise leagues at Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16 level. Next season it plans to run Under-10 and possibly Under-8 festivals depending on the demand.
In preparation for this, the local clubs are running recruitment drives. More information will be available shortly. The clubs will be working closely with the local schools as well as the Brownies following the successful pilot in May.
Ibis JFC will be holding free taster sessions this Saturday (28 November) as well as Saturday 5 December between 10-11am at Queen Katherine School Astroturf. These taster sessions will be open to any girls who want to have a go and are currently in Years 3 to 7.
For more details or to book a place please contact David Ross on (01539) 723131 or (07817) 883497.
