Blandford under-nines girls win the County Cup Final


The Blandford U9 Wildcats sealed the inaugural Dorset Youth League Cup trophy for Under Nine’s girls football in May in a truly remarkable game at The Blandford School.

The girls were 4-1 behind their opponents, the strong Redlands Rebels U9 Girls, after a nervous first half. In the second half they fought back to a 4-4 draw at full time. Extra time lead to a 6-5 win to Blandford!
There was strong support for both teams, with more than 250 people attended the cup final – an astonishingly big crowd for a match which traditionally only draws the family of the players.
Manager Dan Cullen saud “The memories of today will outlive the trophies, and the crowd and roars of support meant more to the team than winning.”
