Invincible Chatteris town under-10 girls win their cup final and end their season unbeaten
THEY did it! After a hard fought match that went to extra time, Chatteris Town under-10 girls won their exciting Cambs Cup final match at Cambridge City’s ground on Saturday.
Their victory meant the youngsters have gone through the whole seasons unbeaten - and were thrilled to have done the double, being presented with both the Cambs Cup and the League Winners Cup.
It was touch and go throughout the cup final against Milton Colts, with Chatteris trailing 1-0 at half time, and pulling back to a 1-1 score line by the end of full time.
Proud manager Scott Rimmer said: “The girls did brilliantly to come back from 1-0 down at half time with a great equaliser by Chloe Rimmer at the start of the second half which seemed to really lift the team
“ At the end of full time it was still 1-1, so there was to be a further two halves of extra time, five minutes each way. It was a frantic time for players and fans alike, as both teams really went for it
“Two fantastically well taken goals by Emily Dover finally getting us over the line. All the girls played their part, but a special mention must go to Paige Dodman and Katie Prior in defence, both outstanding throughout the match.”
The previous week, the girls had won their league, so at the end of the match they were presented with both the Cambs Cup and the Cambs S-Tech U10 League Winners Trophy.
