AFC Waverton 3 - Irby Colts 0

A great end to the Wallasey League season ended in our girls taking the Presidents Cup back down the M53 to Waverton after a great display against Irby Colts.

We won the Cup!

Heather's special message for the girls, sent all the way from Spain, was read out to the girls just before kick off.

A nervous start meant that for the first 15 minutes the girls didn't settle easily with little evidence of the great passing football that the girls have played for much of the season. Once the deadlock had been broken though through a Kiera corner which went straight in, the girls relaxed and were always in control.

1-0 at half time the girls were told not to panic and keep playing their passing game. This is what happened and Ellie added the second goal running through and slotting the ball home into the far corner and then Meg chose a great time to score her first goal of the season tapping home a low cross from close range.

Kiera stepped up to collect the President's Cup from Robbie McGlynn of the Wallasey League and the celebrations began.

Thanks to Robbie, Hughie, Karen and all at the Wallasey League for their hard work in organising the evening and to all the supporters who travelled from Waverton.

Well done girls. All of AFC Waverton is proud of you!
