Ashburton delighted to sponsor two local girls football sides
Sunday 8th September saw the launch of Formby Community Football Club. Ashburton have sponsored two of the U14 girls teams so were there on the day to enjoy the sun and and see the teams in action. Both of the U14 girls Saturday and Sunday teams have since had some impressive wins with a 3-0 victory against Preston North End Girls at UCLAN on Saturday with Georgia Garforth, our very own directors daughter scoring the first goal!
In their first season in this very strong league that has teams from all over the North West the girls are currently in 2nd place.
The Sunday league began for FCFC Real in the Hightown Girls Junior League on September 15th with a local derby against the other Formby Community Football Club - FCFC Albion. The games are always very competitive with bragging rights at stake in the school playground. Real gave everything and had one of their best derby games in memory to run out deserved 5-1 winners. The girls were beaming at the final whistle after a great start to the season.
