Blackpool 3 Euxton 0

Blackpool girls under 12s lifted some silverware on Tuesday, after they breezed past Euxton with a 3-0 victory. 

Goals from Sophie Slater, Imogen Hall and Maisie Rogers did the damage for The Seasiders.

Pool started the brighter side and Hall had an early effort kept out, but they weren’t to be denied for long. Slater made a superb run into the box, before blasting home the opener. 

Slater then turned provider soon after, when her corner was met by the head of Hill and Pool were now in control. 

Right before half-time Euxton asserted some pressure, but some brave defending from the Blackpool defence kept goalkeeper Gracie Jones quiet. 

After the break Minnie Rogers was denied a Blackpool third, but The Seasiders wrapped up their victory soon after. 

Some fine build-up play involving Katie O'Donnell and Sheneill Lymer presented an opportunity to Rogers, and she made no mistake when slotting home the sealer. 

Euxton pushed for a consolation, but chances came at either end before the whistle went and Blackpool were crowned cup winners.

Post-match manager Mac Barlow said: “It was a fine performance from this talented squad of players, we passed the ball very well and took our opportunities when they came along, defensively were getting very hard to break down. 

“The girls showed plenty of effort and determination and it was nice to see them achieve success, they deserve that for all their hard work.

“I'd like to thank everyone who came down to support us and to have Karl Oyston there was just the icing on the cake, I can't thank him enough for all the support he shows the girls Department.

“It was a great end to our season, I’d just like to thank all the players and parents, it's been a pleasure to work with you all."
