Tournament Success

By Will Cheshire

Tournament success for the women as they won the St Michael's Hospice Sue Parry 6 a side tournament on Sunday.

For the first time the St Michaels Hospice in Hereford annual 6 a side torunament in memory of Sue Parry had it's own womens section. In previous years womens team have entered but competed against the mens sides.

The womens tournament featured South West Premier Division side Forest Green Rovers who entered 2 sides, West Midlands Regional Division 1 side Kidderminster Harriers, Midwest Counties sides Hereford FC, Bartestree and Welland as Tupsley, Belmont and mixed side.

Abergavenny were drawn in Group 2 alongside one of Hereford FC's sides, Kidderminster Harriers, one of Forest Green's teams, Welland and Bartestree.

It was a excellent start for Aber as they won 5-0 in the first match against Welland before suffering defeat to Kidderminster 2-1 in the second.

Aber bounced back to beat Forest Green Rovers 3-0 before beating Hereford FC 2-0 and ending the group stages with a 3-0 win over Bartestree.

Abergavenny went through as group winners and met 4th place in group 1 Hereford FC. A win against Hereford FC saw then come against Hereford's other side who they had met in the group stages in the Semi Finals. Another win against them saw Abergavenny into the final.

Aber faced Kidderminster who overcome Bartestree Legends on penalties in the semi final. It was Abergavenny who struck early as they took the lead early on and with the clock running down Kidderminster got an equaliser after a shot deflected on a player and wrong footed our goalkeeper.

The match headed into 2 minutes of extra time but it was Abergavenny who struck the golden goal and saw the side win the tournament with a 2-1 win over Kidderminster.

Head Coaches Ceri Hudson and Laura Davies were pleased with winning the tournament and both said following the win "for us the main purpose on entering the tournament was to have a bit of fun while preparing for pre season to start. It was good to test ourselves against several teams we didn't know much about as well as getting so minutes with a ball at our feet as pre season begins this week"

The ladies donated the £180 winners prize to St Michael's hospice, runner Kidderminster also donated the runners up prize back to the hospice.
