The winning feeling in the air at the moment was kick-started on Saturday, as Hackney Laces recorded back to back victories in the Golden Girls of Hackney tournament, hosted by Hackney Community FC. We entered two sides, Under 14 and Under 17 into the tournament, each facing tough opposition from Stoke Newington, ReachOut FC, Hackney Community FC and Kensington.
The Under 17 team finished runners up, a great achievement and well deserved. The team improved remarkably throughout the tournament, culminating in successive victories and some fantastic flowing football and a wonder goal scored!
We were also very proud to sport the winners of two individual awards, Marigona was commended for her fair play, and a string of brilliant performances by Eunice and a great goal earned her the coveted Player of the Tournament accolade.
The tournament left us with a lot to learn, but some great performances to be proud of, and a winning run to continue.
