The U14's made it a Club Double as they clinched the ESF Title at a hot and sunny Skegness
A massive thank you to ESF @FOOTBALL_TOURS for a great weekend one of the most professionally organised tournaments we've been to
Stuart Weston - U14 Coach
As with the U12s the ESF Tournament was also a new experience for the team who had never been on tour.
The girls, their parents and families stayed at Butlins Skegness with the 7-a-side matches being played nearby on the very good pitches at Swifts JFC in Ingoldmells.
The team won 6 of their matches & lost just 1. In the process they scored 12 goals and keeper Amelia conceded only 2. The title was clinched in the final game versus Lincoln Griffins A with a superb solo goal from skipper Beth Bunker.
We won the title by 4 points and also had a far superior goal difference.
Charlton 1 Sinfin Sharks 2 - Scorer Lou
Lincoln Griffins B 0 Charlton 5 - Scorers - Leah 2, Lucy, Jessie & Beth
Charlton 1 Asfordby Anateurs 0 - Scorer Beth
Charlton 2 Dronfield Town 0 - Scorers Beth & Leah
Clee Town Evolution 0 Charlton 1 - Scorer - Leah
