Felpham's triumphant under-12 girls
A jubilant Felpham under-12 girls' side finished the league season at Henfield and rounded off an unbelievable record, beating a well-disciplined Henfield side 3-0.
In wintry conditions, the going was tough for both teams and chances were missed at both ends with neither team taking command.
Goal-hungry Abbie Flower struck after a goalmouth scramble and this settled a Felpham side determined to finish the league season unbeaten, and they began to play some nice football.
Felpham took only seven players into this match and tired legs began to show as the pitch became a mudbath.
Both teams battled on and halfway through the second half, Felpham scored twice in two minutes.
First, Remi Harding picked up on a poor goal kick and fired home, and from the kick-off, Jodie Greenway intercepted the ball and ran straight at goal, slotting it past the goalkeeper.
That left Felpham with a league record of 13 wins, one draw and no defeats, with 83 goals scored and only one conceded – that in the first game of the season.
Felpham manager Martin Greenway said: "I'm so pleased with the girls. They have put in a fantastic effort all season."
FELPHAM: Harding, Booker, Vawdrey, Martin, Quinnell, Greenway, Flower.
The team go 11-a-side next season and are looking for players with some experience.
