There was a first trophy win for the girls section of Yaxley Football Club last week.

Earlier this year the club formed girls teams at Under 12, Under 13 and Under 14 level and it was the Under 13s who came out on top in their age group at a seven-a-side tournament at Daventry.

The Under 12s were also in action and finished runners-up.

To help the girls squads get off the ground, Mick George Ltd have provided sponsored kit for the Under 12s and Under 13s.

Jon Stump, finance director of Mick George Ltd, said: “Coverage of women’s football is escalating and it’s great to see that this is being experienced within our local communities.

“We recently saw the triumphs achieved by the England ladies team as they came third at the 2015 World Cup. For the players that were fortunate enough to be involved, the long journey starts at grass roots level with teams like Yaxley FC Ladies. Wherever feasible, will endeavour to support this development process.”
