U14 Girls win the Football County Cup Final
The team played some brilliant football to beat Henry Box 4-1. Marlborough went 1 goal up with a strong effort from Mia Thomson. Henry Box hit back quickly with a lucky shot that took a big bounce. Marlborough dominated the game with 2 further goals from Mia Thomson and Ella Dawkins. The second half was a bit tense. Henry Box put up a good fight but with 3 minutes to play, Marlborough got a 4th and Mia got her hat-trick. It's difficult to pick out a player of the match as it was a great example of teamwork and it is definitely a well-deserved victory.
