Lads Club u10 triumphant Futsal winners….. now through to the regional finals in Birmingham.

Hereford Lads Club Girls teams continued the Clubs fine run of form in Regional Futsal Tournaments with a win for ‘The Blues’ in the Hereford qualifying round of the Under 10 category at the Hereford Academy on Thursday 25 April.

The Blues team, a mix of Belles and Vixen team members, opened the Tournament with an emphatic 12-1 win against their sister Lads Club Pumas team.

Taking the game straight to Pumas, The Blues dominated with goals from Grace, Chloe B, Harriet, Freya and Katie, with assured performances in defence from Eilidh and in goal from Chloe C.

A second round-robin game against Ross saw The Blues dominate again but unable to break down a stubborn Ross defence. Chances came and went until a breakaway goal for Ross was enough to claim the game 1-0.

The Blues bounced back in the semi-final with another emphatic 5-0 win over the Pumas, setting up a re-match final with Ross.

The final saw The Blues attack from first whistle and with a change of tactics a first goal from Grace settled early nerves. With Chloe C confident in goal, Harriet, Grace and Chloe B were able to pass the ball well and caused problems for the Ross defence for the whole game.

Freya and Katie dealt with the Ross attack confidently and as The Blues attacked relentlessly, Eilidh came into her own turning defence into attack claiming a hat-trick in a comfortable 4-0 win.

The win sees ‘The Blues’ qualify for the Regional Futsal Finals in Birmingham on Saturday 11 May where they will be joined by the Lads Club Vixens team who were also successful in the U12 category.
