Keele Cup


Last week saw the Elysium-sponsored Guernsey Women's Team attend the Keele Cup tournament in the UK. The tournament attracts a lot of teams from the UK as well as internationally and provided an opportunity for the Guernsey Women's team to play multiple games against good opposition. The side was in Group B and began the tournament with a 2-0 win against the eventual overall winners, Wortley LFC, making them the only team to beat Wortley LFC in the group.

The next match saw a strong start with Guernsey going 1-0 up against Macclesfield LFC, but they conceded under strong pressure in the last few minutes of the game. The third match of the day was against Llandudno Junction; a technical, fast paced and tight game ensued which ended in a valuable goalless draw leaving the Guernsey Ladies at the top of the league after the first day of the tournament.

The second day saw the side play their last game in the group against Dundee City. Dundee was a very experienced side and the game finished on a 0-0 draw. The Guernsey side were crowned League Winners of the table - a fantastic achievement.
