Borough had two teams in action at competition

The Brent under-10 girls’ football teams gave a good account of themselves at the Capital City Girls’ League tournament last weekend.

The borough entered two teams in the competition, an ‘A’ squad and a ‘B’ side, as they pitted their wits against some of London’s best.

By quirk of fate, the two Brent teams were drawn to play each other in the opening group stage, and were joined by Watford and Islington.

Against Watford, the A team recorded a 1-0 win, but the B side suffered an agonising 2-1 defeat.

In their respective clashes against Islington, the A squad were again 1-0 victors, while the B team played out a 1-1 draw.

The final game of the group stages saw the two Brent teams face off, with the A side prevailing 2-1.

That was enough to see the A squad into the semi-finals, where they were beaten 3-0 by a strong Wealdstone side.

Coach Patricia Taylor said: “I’m very proud. They all did a fantastic job. This can give the squad the confidence they need for next season.”
