Capital Football’s U/14 Girls side were crowned Pool B Champions at the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls in Coffs Harbour last week.
Having not dropped a point all week throughout their Pool, the side produced a strong draw against Pool A heavyweights NSW Metro to finish off the week.
The Capital Football U/15 side also performed strongly throughout the week, pulling out some strong wins in their campaign.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown said the performance of the U/14’s was a great indicator of the talent level present in the ACT & surrounding region.
“It really goes to show the talent we have in female football in the ACT, which is displayed every weekend through our clubs competing in our PS4 National Premier League Women’s competition.”
