Saffron Walden PSG Under-11 Blacks missed out on a final place at the Rayleigh tournament after a nailbiting penalty shoot-out.

Some excellent play from Emma, Lois, Keira, Olivia, Amelia, Grace and top scorer Uma earned them three wins and a draw in their group.

But it wasn’t their day as they lost on spot-kicks and a spokesperson said: “The girls should all be proud of this achievement as they beat some strong opponents and played some great football.”

With 13 girls available, the club also fielded an Under-11 Blues team, with Immy, Amy, Maria, Mae, Freya and Georgie working tirelessly to earn two draws, but suffer two narrow defeats.

Amy stepped up at the last minute, from a younger age group, and showed no fear while displaying some excellent defensive skills.
