St. George’s Park hosted the 2017 Girls’ Futsal Challenge Cup tournament at the weekend – won by Hitchin Belles.
The five-team event, made up of U16 players, took place in the Futsal Arena at the national football centre.
City Youth Futsal, Spurs Ladies Whites, Spurs Ladies Blues and Hayes & Yeading also competed in matches across two days.
Hayes & Yeading lifted the plate and secured third spot with two wins in as many matches while Hitchin Belles saw off Spurs Ladies Whites 4-1 in the showpiece final.
Tournament director Chris Johnson, who completed the FA Level 2 in the Coaching Futsal course at St. George’s Park last year, declared the event a success.
He said: “The tournament provides an opportunity to showcase this fast, highly-skilled and tactical version of the game to other clubs within Hertfordshire and beyond.
“Our club has supported and provided investment in its futsal programme for several years now.
“There are not many places that offer the futsal course, but I’m so glad I came here.
