Congratulations to Ruth Jeal who is celebrating with her teammates at Bedale BlueBirds after their U13 girls’ football squad ended a very successful season winning the “league and cup double” in the Harrogate and District league. In the cup final the team beat Clifford 6:1, with a resounding 8:5 victory against Kirk Deighton in the final game of the league season.The team also includes Lucy Denton and Saige Williams from Richmond (as well as girls from Bedale, Northallerton and SFX) and the girls only lost one game in the entire season, losing in the semi-final of the County Cup. They played 23 games, conceding 21 goals while scoring 105, of which which Ruth scored a fabulous 55!
Training will continue in Bedale every Wednesday evening for most of the summer (to which new players are always welcome), in preparation for a new challenge in the U14 York League next season. Ruth is shown centre in the photograph.
