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.

Saffron Walden PSG FC train in and around Saffron Walden and welcome new girls aged four to 16 from complete beginners to experienced players. Email newplayercontact@psgfc.co.uk for more information.
