Over 60+ girls came together to take part in our Game On Girls Soccer Schools Festival on Monday 20th November at University of South Wales Sports Park. With 9 primary schools and 8 teams we were all set for what was to be a fantastic and successful event. With thanks to The FAW Trust and The Coalfields Regeneration Trust we were able to offer girls the opportunity to get involved and play football for the first time. The skill, effort, commitment and respect shown throughout the tournament was superb and we hope everyone who took part enjoyed their time with us.
Llanharry V Dolau & Garth Olwg V Maerdy was our 4 semi-finalists. All four teams battled hard with Llanharry sailing through to the final after beating Dolau 3-0 and Maerdy unfortunately just missing out to Garth Olwg during extra time. Llanharry and Garth Olwg provided us with a thrilling final with both teams having plenty of chances to score, but on the final whistle it was Garth Olwg who were crowned Game On Girls Soccer Schools Festival 2017 Champions, congratulations! Thank you to all the schools, teachers a pupils who took part, we look forward to seeing you at our next Soccer Schools Festival in January 2018.
