Greater Manchester 1 Durham 2

Durham came from behind to win the NCSFA U14 Girls Competition for the first time. Greater Manchester took an early lead their initial play deserved. Durham then began to get a foothold in the game hitting the crossbar twice before a merited equaliser 3 minutes from half time from Ellen-Marie Atkinson.

The second half continued to be evenly contested. Durham, within the space of a minute, had two attempts on goal resulting in the Greater Manchester goalkeeper making two excellent saves. Durham edged ahead in the 54th minute when Eva Mysleyko hit the bar, but Lucy Wells reacted quickly to poke the ball home. With 10 minutes remaining Durham were indebted to Eva Bewicke who came to Durham's rescue when, covering on the line, she headed clear.

Durham were able to play out the final minutes to secure a well-earned victory.

Credit must go to both teams for producing an excellent final.

Durham's NCSFA winning squad was Ellen-Marie Atkinson, Jessica Barker, Eva Bewicke, Daisy Clarke, Grace Collinson, Darcey Dixon, Amelia Gate, Chloe Jackson, Amelia Kirkup, Ellen Kirkup, Eva Mysleyko, Charlotte Pegram, Abbie Richardson, Neve Sewell, Freya Sinclair and Lucy Wells.

Northumberland 3 Durham 2 (Katy Watson, Ellie Wise)

Northumberland got off to an excellent start by scoring in the 3rd minute. Durham worked their way back into the game and equalised in the 24th minute through Katy Watson. Northumberland regained the lead 6 minutes after the interval. Durham had an opportunity to be on level terms in the 63rd minute when they were awarded a penalty but the resultant kick hit the post. However, the visitors did equalise 7 minutes later through Ellie Wise. The home team scored the decisive winner with 4 minutes remaining.

The girls on both teams can be immensely proud of the way they played thus providing the spectators with an entertaining, skilful and highly competitive game. This match was a great advertisement for girls' football.


Durham 3 North Yorkshire 1 -- Durham are the inaugural winners of this trophy. Matthew Ward scored a hat trick for Durham.
