Under-13 Girls Win Lancashire County Cup

8 May 2017

More Success For Girls and Ladies' Setup

Tyra Vickers, Emily Slater and Emily Webster were all on target as Blackpool's under-13 girls recorded a 3-0 victory over Wigan Athletic in the Lancashire County Cup final.  

The match, played at the Lancashire FA headquarters in Leyland, was keenly contested and there was nothing to separate the sides at half-time. 

However, after the interval Blackpool came out of the blocks quickly and opened the scoring when Vickers bundled the ball home. 

It was a goal that provided plenty of confidence, with The Seasiders going close to finding the net once again with a couple of efforts. 

The second goal came courtesy of Slater, who swivelled into a good position and struck a crisp shot into the back of the net. 

The Blackpool defence stood firm as Wigan pushed for a way back into the encounter, prior to Webster wrapping up the scoring with the third of the game. 

The trophy success came days after the under-16s won the Lancashire County Cup for their age group.
