Letchworth GC Eagles U12 girls have done the double.

Having recently been crowned Division Two champions in their league campaign, the team capped off a successful season by winning their shield final at the weekend.

The final, against Pro Direct Academy, was a closely contested match.

Pro Direct started strongly and took an early lead but Letchworth dug deep and equalised midway through the first half with a fine strike by Anneliese Georgiou.

The second half saw some end-to-end football with chances for both teams as Olivia Sumner pulled off some superb saves to keep the Eagles in the game.

With five minutes of normal time remaining Eagles broke away with a driving run down the right by Maddie Hayes and as she approached the box the youngster cut inside and shot into the top left hand corner to win the match 2-1 for the Eagles.
