CCGI sponsored Cheltenham Spa Under 11s Girls have warmed up for the upcoming season with a great result in the recent St Nicholas FC six aside football tournament held at Chipping Sodbury near Bristol.
After coming through the round robin games against Brislington, Boco and Portishead undefeated (Four wins and two draws) they met Brislington again in the final. After 10 minutes each way the teams were tied at 0-0. A further six minutes of extra time couldn’t separate the teams so the dreaded penalties were the only way to split the teams. Unfortunately ‘Spa’ fell sort losing 3-2.
“This was a great achievement so early in pre-season training,” said Team Manager and CCGI Driller, Alan Lusmore. “We have another tournament in July and are looking forward to a successful new season starting in September.”
Well done girls. Let’s hope at least one of the British men’s senior teams can get a similar result, if not one better, in the upcoming Euro 2016 in France starting next month.
