The girls played a number of matches and mixed the teams up so that all the girls got game time.

Matches were refereed by Lions coaches and Eleanor Wilkinson, a 16 year old female referee.

Organiser, Lee Crosse, said ” I am really pleased with the number of girls who have come down today. It’s great to see how positive everyone is and to watch the girls get some game time”
