Tesco Cup success for Man City - 25 May 2011 - Women's Football News

 
Manchester City Under-16, representing England, won the UK Tesco Cup Final held at Birmingham City's St Andrews stadium on Sunday. 
 
The girls lifted the trophy after beating Glasgow Celtic, from Scotland, 2-1 in the final.
 
In a closely fought semi final earlier in the day, Manchester City scored twice in extra time to defeat Northern Ireland's Sion Swifts 2-0. The match finished goalless at full time with both sides guilty of missed chances, but it was City who progressed to the final with a clinical display in the additional ten minute period.
 
In the final, Manchester City came up against Glasgow Celtic who beat Welsh representatives Mardy Tigers in their semi final. Celtic started the match strongly and led 1-0 at half time. With just three minutes to play, Manchester City found an equaliser through a free kick from Chelsea Flanagan. Another period of extra time looked inevitable before Jess Bradshaw-Jones scored a dramatic last minute winner to seal victory for Manchester City.
 
Manchester City Team Manager Andy Thomas said: "Another great win again today. A bit too close for my liking when we were a goal down with three minutes to go, but we came through it in the end. It's the last season together for these girls so it's a great way to finish."
 
More than 150 young footballers across the UK enjoyed the experience of playing on a Premier League stage and the chance to showcase their skills in front of Arsenal legend and Tesco Cup ambassador Martin Keown. The former Arsenal defender selected Manchester City's Chelsea Flanagan as Player of the Tournament following her goal in the Final and two great performances on the day.
 
Martin Keown said: "The Tesco Cup is a brilliant competition for young footballers in the UK. To play on a Premier League pitch here at St Andrews is a once in a lifetime chance for these players and a fitting way to conclude the competition. The standard of football played today has been excellent and all the teams have shown they fully deserved their place in the final. Manchester City were particularly impressive and worthy UK Champions."
