In Europe's biggest festival of youth sport at Crystal Palace, the Kingston Girls 5-a-side team battled hard against some very good opposition on tricky pitches and in sweltering conditions. The spirit in the team was great to see, even though the results went against them, they never stopped working and demonstrated how much they had learnt in the training sessions over the last month.

The Kingston team, ably coached by the vastly experienced Martin Woodroffe, president of the Corinthian-Casuals Youth Section, found the going tough against some teams with players who are the very best in their age groups.

It was a fantastic effort by the girls, supported by a great group of parents and spectators who helped motivate and encourage the girls to play some very good football. The new Mayor of Kingston visited and loudly cheered the girls on, expressing how proud she was of the girls taking part.

Well done everyone!
