Solihull Moors’ girls teams have won four competitions between the under-9 and under-11 age groups in two tournaments, cementing a wonderful first season for the club’s new youth structure.
In particular the under-11 girls have done well, finishing sixth in their league and winning the annual Marston Green FC Tournament.
All four group games were tough but a draw against Marston Green, back-to-back victories against Kingshurst B and Leafield and a defeat to Kingshurst A saw the girls finish second.
In the semi-finals, a comfortable 3-0 win against Kingshurst A – to avenge the group defeat – set up the final against Leafield.
With only three minutes remaining and nothing between the sides extra-time was looming when Moors scored a well-worked goal from close range.
In the last minute they sealed victory with a second as the girls’ spirit and dogged determination ended a three-year wait for their first trophy.
