Barnet added another honour to their wonderful season by winning the open age tournament run by Enfield Town Ladies on Sunday.
The Bees won the Joan O'Mailey Memorial Cup with a 1-0 win in the final, having disposed of the hosts in the semis by a similar margin.
The 36 team tournament featured lots of high quality play from a number of teams with Premier League players . Teams of five from all over London and the South East of England played five group games and up to four knockout games, each lasting ten minutes on small pitches and mini goals.
Colchester United sent four squads and three reached the last sixteen. Their D team gave Barnet their toughest test of the day, taking the eventual winners to sudden death in a post match penalty
shootout after an exciting drawn match in the quarter finals. Denham finalists Eltham Town were eliminated on penalties in the semi finals after another fine run, losing to Tekkers and Shape , a squad with a strong Arsenal representation. Enfield A did the home club proud before losing to Barnet in the semi final.
Barnet went ahead early in the Final and were forced to defend for most of the rest of the game,
which they did with great determination against a very skilful Tekkers and Shape squad. The Plate competition for next eight most successful teams in the group stages was won by Ditton who beat Hemel Hempstead Town A 1-0 after extra time, which was only used in the Finals.
The day also featured no less than five junior tournaments running alongside the senior competitions. Town general secretary and first team stalwart Claire Gooch and her team organised a superb day which was blessed with ideal weather conditions for a lengthy competition which took place on no less than 15 pitches on Enfield playing fields. The Mayor of Enfield was present to watch the finals and to present the trophies to the winners.
