Ann-Helen Grahm's Women's U17 side got off to the best possible start in the opening tie of the UEFA WU17 European Qualification Group.

4 East Region Squad footballers played their part in a 13-0 victory over the group's hosts.

Claire Thoms, Lana Clelland (2) and Aimee Godfrey all got on the scoresheet with Kelly Clark also playing the full 90 minutes.

Coach Ann Helen Grahm was delighted to get off the mark in such emphatic fashion.

"We showed some really good attacking football this afternoon," she told

"We were four up within the first ten minutes so I felt the girls did very well to keep their concentration throughout the game and continue to play good football and score goals even though the contest was over.

"In those situations it is difficult to keep looking for good attacking options and play the right ball so I feel the team deserve credit for achieving that.

"We also had a fantastic range of scorers on the pitch which was especially pleasing and our goals were scored pretty consistently from the first whistle to the last.

"If we can take that kind of focus into the next game against Austria we will do well.

"Austria beat the Czech Republic 5-1 today, so we will analyse their video this evening and hopefully be prepared for what will be a very tough game."
