34 teams contest Bangor City's annual girls football tournament

More than 400 girls, between 10 and 16 took part



Girls teams from across North Wales and the North West descended on Bangor City for their annual tournament.

In what the club describe as a 'hugely successful' weekend, more than 400 girls represented the 34 teams, who competed in four age groups, from U10 to U16.

Spread across a weekend, the U10 and U12 played on Saturday, before the U14 and U16 age groups took centre stage at the club's Nantporth ground on Sunday.

The North Wales Girls League was well represented at the tournament but teams travelled from as far afield as St Annes (Liverpool), The New Saints (Oswestry), and Runcorn to join in the fun.

Bangor City's Community Officer Ethan Ray said: "It was an incredible weekend and it was fantastic to have so many clubs from different areas and leagues entering. I cant wait to host it again next year.

"There was an excellent standard of football throughout the weekend, as matches were played in a fantastic spirit.

"It was a great opportunity for girls to play and test themselves against different opposition and all of of Bangor City's girls had a great time.

"We've had lots of positive feedback from the other clubs involved and it was a great opportunity for young female players to play football, develop their skills, compete against new players and most importantly have fun.

"I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the teams, players, coaches, parents and volunteers for coming and supporting the event."
