Women’s football

A SECOND five-a-side football tournament for women is to be held in Hartlepool following the success of the town’s first ever competition.

A tournament organised by Hartlepool Borough Council’s sport and recreation service, took place at Grayfields recreation ground and attracted five teams.

The eventual winners were Norton Ladies who defeated Peterlee Ladies 3-1 in a close-fought final.

Assistant Recreation Officer Daniel Garthwaite said: “We were delighted with the support shown for the competition and the quality of the football played was excellent.”
