On Saturday, 23rd February our HUCSF Norton Veterans travelled to Goals Newcastle to take part in the FA People’s Cup Over 35 Ladies category.
Due to illness, the ladies found themselves down to only 4 players in a five a side tournament.
The ladies had the option to withdraw but were determined to compete anyway and they were very glad they did!
The team consisted of Nyci Thorns, Nic Jenkins, Lindsay Bell and Victoria Graham and were coached by HUCSF staff member Vicki Burton.
The ladies arrived and were told they needed to finish top of the league to qualify for the Northern Finals.
They played two games and ran out 18-0 and 13-1 winners which saw them qualify for the next round in April.
These ladies attend our Monday night 21+ training at North Shore Academy (Talbot Street Stockton-on-Tees TS20 2AY) which is funded by the Premier League Girls fund.
The 21+ training sessions, which are free to attend, are held every Monday between 6.30pm and 7.30pm and new members are more than welcome to attend.
