THE Morpeth Sporting Club Under 11 Girls football team recently won the Northumberland Girls Football Championship League.

This great success was achieved in their first year of competitive football and it is the first time that a girls’ team from Morpeth has won the league. They won eight games and drew four matches.

Team manager James Callaghan said: “Most of the girls in the team had never played football prior to joining the squad last August. They have all improved individually and work very hard together as a team and they all play with a smile on their face win, lose or draw.”

New players for next season are welcome (current Years 5 and 6). For more information, call Mr Callaghan on 07772 193022.
