Hutton girls Under-11s finished as runners-up in their first-ever tournament.

ONLY three months after first training together, recently-formed Hutton girls Under-11s travelled to Bishops Lydeard to take part in their first-ever tournament.

The girls opened the tournament against the eventual winners and impressed with their passing moves all over the pitch. The first game ended with a 3-0 defeat, but the girls were upbeat after a terrific performance.

Game two was a dominant showcase by the team and a flurry of passing moves ended up with some clinical finishing to provide a superb 6-0 victory.

The next game was more of the same and a 3-0 victory saw Hutton needing a draw or more in the final game against Wembdon to claim the runners-up trophy.

You may also want to watch:

Hutton started strongly and were rewarded early on when a corner took a deflection into the goal. Pressure started to build as the girls tired, but some strong defending kept the narrow lead until Wembdon equalised.

A superb performance by the team of: Charlotte Lewis, Emily Evans, Lauren Small, Paige Nigh, Ellie Burrows, Melody Heath, Eilidh Patterson and Livvy Worley was rewarded with the runners-up trophy.
