Grasshoppers JFC girls U13's won their first tournament at Gillingham Anchorians at the weekend.
This was a day when everything just clicked. They managed to get through the 6 group games unbeaten to set up a semi final with Sevenoaks. Having been beaten in the first knockout game a couple of weeks before at Castle Colts, the girls didn't want the same result.
A great performance saw them come out 2-0 victors to make their first ever final.
Onto the final with Maidstone Utd, a team we have never beaten !!
Again a great game which finished 0-0.
So onto penalties ..... :(
Some great penalties and great saves saw us come out on top.
So started the celebrations of our first ever tournament Win.
Its great the girls now have something to show for their hard work over the years.
I'd also like to thank Dave and the Maidstone girls for being so sporting in defeat as losing on penalties is never a nice way to go out.
As you can see I haven't singled anyone out as even though there were some brilliant individual moments through the day.
This was such a collective effort and every girl played their part.
