On Saturday 25th June, Aberdeen Sports Village were hosts of the third Girls Cup final since the Scottish Women’s Football and Scottish FA have come together to develop and administer the girls and women’s game. This was for Girls North Region 13s, 15s and 17s League Cup.
The Under 13s final saw two teams from the same club face each other, Aberdeen East End United against Aberdeen East End Youth which was refereed by Christopher Auton. A young Aberdeen East End Youth played some great football but unfortunately couldn’t get past the United last line of defence to score. An older more experienced United side, who were last years runners-up in the finals, showed a cutting edge which saw them score 4 goals to win.
The Under 15s final was between last years Under 13 winners Deveronvale and Aberdeen East End United who are both doing well in the Under 15s league. Craig Christie refereed this game which saw United take an early lead after starting the brighter team. Vale pushed for an equaliser and finally got it in the second half. They then managed to get two more goals to win the game just as the spectators thought the game was going into extra time.
The Under 17s Final saw a young Real Farmington side get to a flying start against a depleted Buchan Youth team which was refereed by Jim Robison. They went 2 goals up and settled down to play some nice football. Despite Buchan’s valiant efforts Forfar added to their tally to make the final score 4-0.
All finalists were presented with their medals from Women's A squad internationalist Rachael Small.
On behalf of the Scottish Women’s Football and Scottish FA, thanks to the match officials, our six finalists management teams, all players, supporters, Rachael Small and Aberdeen Sports Village for making the finals a great success.
