Upper Hutt Girls Tournament 2012

On 24th March 2012 Wests entered two girls teams in the Upper Hutt City Football Club's girls-only "Kick It" tournament.

A mixture of summer league, girls-only and mixed grade girls made up an Under 10 (Ferns) and an Under 12 (Red Devils) team.

  • The U12s won 3 games and drew 3
  • The U10s won 2 games and lost 3

A Wests U10 team had won the trophy for that grade in the inaugural tournament last year.

Unfortunately no trophies were brought back to the club this year.  Results from games weren't recorded and the trophies were awarded on a basis of referee nominations for "fair play" (by each team's players, coaches and spectators) this year. 

The Wests girls and their families definately represented the club exceptionally well, but this (novel?) system saw the trophies go home to other teams this time (Wgtn United U10s and Karori U12s).

Despite pretty threatening weather all day, everyone had a great time, as you can tell from the smiles in the photo.

It was a great day for the girls lucky enough to be selected for the tournament, with current and past Football Ferns and NZ U21 players signing autographs, handing out posters and encouraging our youngsters throughout the day.

Thanks UHCFC for hosting.
