The Tigers Trust are proud to provide opportunities for females to engage with sport, and last week saw the Trust host the local qualifier of the Utilita Girls Cup at the University of Hull.
The Utilita Girls Cup offers girls the once in a lifetime opportunity to play at Wembley Stadium and involves over 20,000 girls nationally.
Twenty-eight teams took part in the local qualifier on Thursday, and it was South Hunsley who would come out victorious.
The team, who lifted the Utilita Girls Cup last year, beat Beverley High School in a close final to reach the next stage of the competition.
Hull City’s Regan Slater and Tyler Smith presented the team with their medals, and also took the time to get pictures with all the players.
After the win, South Hunsley manager Laura Bramhill said: “Our team showed great composure and resilience to come back from 1-0 down in the final to win.
“We now look forward to the next round, we know it is a very tough journey to get to the final at Wembley but bring it on!”
The Tigers Trust’s Female Engagement Lead Ellie Tanser said: “It’s so important we create opportunities like this to showcase the talented young female footballers we have in this area, and to raise the profile of girls' football even further.”
Everyone at the Tigers Trust would like to wish South Hunsley all the best as they look to defend their trophy over the coming months.
