Around 80 teenage girls took part in a tournament at Biggleswade United in an event which raised over £400 for the club’s academy.

The growing interest in girls’ football was there for all to see as the 14 to 15-year-olds took part in the tournament at Second Meadow, an event organised by United academy chief Fran Constancio.

Teams from Flitwick Eagles, Bedwell Rangers, Langford and United were in action, with the hosts beating Flitwick 2-0 in the final.

Langford beat Bedwell 3-0 in the third-fourth place match.

Constancio said: “It was really nice to win but what was most important and really wonderful was to see how much progress, not just our sides but, girls football in the area has made.

“It was a really wonderful day and something we could not have put on without the magnificent volunteers that helped out with things like refereeing, running the gate, taking pictures, selling raffle tickets and making the teas.”
