Cardiff City were victorious at the Tesco Under-16 Cup Welsh National Final in Cardiff this weekend and, following their impressive performance, will now represent Wales at the UK Final, to be held at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton on May 16.
Cardiff won both of their group games 1-0, finishing on top with six points. They then carried their form through to the final and defeated Marford and Gresford Albion 2-0, who were the North East Wales representatives.
Welsh international and Cardiff City star Joe Ledley attended the event in Cardiff fresh from his winning goal against QPR on Saturday, which secured his club a play-off place at the end of the season.
At the tournament, Ledley chose talented player Lauren Price, from Cardiff City as Player of the Tournament, for her impressive performances throughout the day and her Cup Final goal, which was a sumptuous volley from outside the penalty area. Cardiff City were awarded more glory as Charlotte Wooten was selected as Goalkeeper of the Tournament, after she managed to keep three consecutive clean sheets.
Cardiff City Ladies Assistant Manager Matt Judd said: "It's a great honour to win, the girls are absolutely delighted. We hope now to go up to Bolton and bring the cup back to Wales. The girls have had great fun, all the teams had a chance to mix and it's been a fantastic day."
Joe Ledley commented: "The Tesco Cup is a fantastic initiative to encourage kids to play football and the standard of play in Putney has been really good. Over 60,000 youngsters across the country have taken part in the competition so far which shows what a success it is and how well the teams who have reached the UK Finals have done."
The Tesco Cup is part of a wider commitment from Tesco to encourage children to get involved in sport. Now in its fifth year, Tesco works in conjunction with the FA and local communities to help improve the football skills of young players.
Tesco Cup teams compete 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 - the home of Bolton Wanderers - on Sunday May 16, where they will fight it out to become UK Champions.
