Women's Football News
The first ever London FA Women's Summer League came to a conclusion on Wednesday evening, at the fantastic astro turf facility at the Samuel Montagu Youth Club in Greenwich.
Over the last six weeks, teams have battled it out to be crowned Champions of the league. There were nine teams entered including teams from 11-a-side clubs, small sided teams, a hockey team and teams made up from groups of friends so there was a great mixture of experience and ability involved.
Throughout the course of the league it was great to see the teams adapt to the quicker playing surface and improve each week. Some fantastic football was played and it was an eye opener to those who perhaps haven't seen much women's football in the past.
Docklands Ladies were crowned Champions, with an impressive 8 wins out of 8, and a total of 24 points with 48 goals scored. London Corinthians were runners up having only lost one of their eight matches.
Emma Barnes, W&G FDO says: "The response we have received for this league has been great, all teams have been brilliant in terms of the football they have played and their conduct on the pitch. It has been a really positive step and shows that there is a big interest out there for women to get involved who perhaps do not play 11v11 football and also as an addition for those that do."
Feedback from the league has been really positive and we will be looking to run something similar either later in the year or early in 2013. If you are interested in getting involved please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
