Tigers Trust Proud to Host Utilita Girls Cup

17 November 2021

Earlier this month, the Tigers Trust were proud to host the Utilita Girls Cup at the University of Hull.

The Utilita Girls Cup is a national tournament for Under-13 girls that culminates in a Grand Final at Wembley Stadium.

27 teams took part in the local tournament, made up of pupils from secondary schools around Hull and East Riding.

Ellie Tanser, Premier League Kicks Female Engagement Lead at the Trust, said: "It was brilliant to see over 200 girls being active and having fun!"

"For a lot of the schools this was the first time they had played any sort of fixture since the pandemic, so it was an absolute pleasure to be able to provide them with this opportunity.

"Every game was played in great spirits and all the girls had smiles on their faces throughout.”

South Hunsley (Whites) came out on top after winning all three of their group games and then seeing off Malet Lambert in the final.

Their coach, Laura Bramhill, admitted that she was proud of her team's performance throughout and praised the structure of the event.

"We absolutely loved being involved. There was a really good atmosphere and feel about the place," she said.

"I’m so proud to have seen my team win and it was great to see them given that opportunity to play football. I could see the confidence of the girls growing game after game. The tournament was really well organised and structured too!"

Local Hull City stars Jacob Greaves and Keane Lewis-Potter came down to surprise the participants and hand out the trophy to the winning team.

A huge well done and thank you to all the teams taking part, and congratulations to South Hunsley (Whites) who won the tournament. They will travel to Sheffield in January for the next round.
