Armagh City U13 Girls finish Runner’s Up in the Lisburn Festival
Armagh City U13 Girls Youth team travelled to Lisburn on Tuesday 3rd
April to compete in the Lisburn Ladies Football Festival.
The team of 7 (5 players and 2 subs) reached the final.
After being beaten in their first game against Ballynahinch Girls, Armagh
went on to win their next two games against Donegal Celtic and Lisburn
to win a place in the semi final against a strong Ballymena team, which
saw a hard fought win when the game went to penalties and the Armagh
Girls clinching it in sudden death. With Armagh girls through to the final
they would again face Ballynahinch. With a tight start to the game
Ballynahinch got the first goal and then grew in confidence which saw
them win the game 3-0.
It was a great all round performance by an Armagh side which has
continued to grow from their first ever tournament in January this year.
To reach the final was a big achievement. Well done girls!! :).
We would like to thank Stephen Bingham from Lisburn Ladies for
inviting us down to their tournament.
Armagh City Girls were Goalkeeper Anna Toner, out field players
S Mc Cauley, G Williamson Mc Cabe, A Nesbitt, M Murphy,
H Murphy and S Armstrong.
