In their first friendly, the team took on Chatteris Town Girls at the SM Guy Memorial Playing Field on Saturday morning, which proved a real success with all girls scoring plenty of goals and showing true teamwork.

Managed by Steve Tarsitano, the idea of launching a side only came about in May as part of Manea Strikers FC, and now, there is rapid progress being made.

Speaking after their opening match, Tarsitano said: "Today I have nothing but positives from this team.

You may also want to watch:

"This team has the chemistry and ingredients of a top performing side.

"They are a rapidly developing bunch of top players that are to be reckoned with, and only on their first game!"

Tarsitano has also arranged a coaching session for the girls from a former professional women's footballer, who played alongside many of the current England Lionesses tomorrow evening.
