GirlsTournament-960x475

Throughout November, Cardiff City FC Community Foundation hosted the final stages of the Under 13s Girls Football Tournament in conjunction with Kinder.

From 11th to 13th November, 22 comprehensive schools from surrounding communities attended, with twelve returning for the Club finals on 18th.

 

The event, sponsored by New Directions Education, is part of a national competition run by Football League Clubs throughout England and Wales.

 

For a second consecutive year, Whitecross High School was crowned champions after a tough battle in the final against St John Baptist School from Aberdare. Talking about their second victory in the Cardiff stages of the tournament, Whitecross Manager Jade Watkins added;

 

“We got to this final via penalties after a hard fought semi-final, then for it to go to penalties in the final shows what an excellent standard this competition was played at. This opportunity was great for our team; it’s fantastic to be able to play at a decent standard. Cardiff City and all involved have been wonderful.”
The girls from Whitecross will now progress on to the next round in Exeter, for the opportunity to play at Wembley in 2015.
