Watford on way to Wembley!
 Women's Football News 22 May 2013
 
Watford on way to Wembley! - 22 May 2013 - Women's Football NewsIn a week when Watford FC are preparing their squad for the forthcoming Play-Off Final and a trip to Wembley, the Golden Girls were able to secure a trip of their own as they enjoyed success in the FA Fives tournament. 
 
The annual five -a-side competition sees hundreds of teams around the country take part, which culminates in a National Tournament on the Wembley stadium pitch.
 
After coming through the county stage of the competition earlier this year over five weeks, Watford Ladies qualified for the London Regional Finals, with the goal of securing their spot at Wembley.
 
The Hornets successfully negotiated their way through the group stage as runners-up, qualifying for the semi final stage before really turning on the style.
 
In the semi final match they defeated a tough Bushey side, who had Birmingham goalkeeper Marie Hourihan in their side as well as ex-Hornets Sally Wade and Laura Cooper. The match finished 3-1 with two goals from Jo Wilson and one from Sarah Wiltshire.
 
The final went even better as they came up against Futsal team Itchen Athletic, but their opponents had no answer to Watford's slick passing and robust defending and the match ended 4-1 with a fine hat-trick from Wiltshire and a penalty added by Cally Rowell.
 
So not only had they secured some silverware but they were able to look ahead to what will be a fantastic day out at Wembley and an opportunity to play for the overall FA Fives trophy.
 
Manager Steve Edwards was understandably a happy man as he praised the young squad. "I'm really pleased how we grew into our football over the course of the day and we definitely saved our A-game for the semi final and final!
 
"These games are played at a high tempo and you aren't able to drop your focus for a second, but the teams that are successful in this competition are those that work extremely hard and are able to attack at pace.
 
"We got our game plan spot on in the final two matches and it's great to see the players lift a trophy at the end of it. I'm so pleased these players will get the opportunity to play on the Wembley stage, opportunities like that don't come around every day, but they deserve it and we'll make sure we enjoy every minute of it. And if we can produce some performances like we showed today, then who knows what can happen!"
 
The National competition doesn't have a set date at the moment, but the FA Fives organisers state it will take place 'later in the year'.
 
The successful squad was made up from: Hollie Augustus, Georgia Mays, Renee Hector, Cally Rowell, Amy Runciman, Kate Natkiel, Sarah Wiltshire, Jo Wilson.
