END OF THE PEOPLES CUP ROAD FOR THE LADIES
Our People’s Cup adventure came to an end today for our ladies. The girls did amazingly well against some very stiff opposition. We finished a creditable third in our group with both of the teams above us eventually qualifying for the finals at St George’s Park next month; we wish them both well.
We won one game, drew one game and lost two – both losses against the teams who qualified so I think we can be very proud of our achievements. 5-a-side is tough at any time but for a group of walking footballers playing running 5-a-side against much younger teams (our average age today was 52) it’s especially tough. However the girls never gave up and we are proud of every one of them!
Squad: Alli, Caroline, Dee, Jan, Sue H, Sue M, Truley. Goal scorers: Truley (2), Alli.
