Kat McKenna enjoyed a memorable day at the FA Umbro Fives, helping her team win the main tournament at Wembley Stadium and being named as Player of the Tournament in the process.
Kat played a major role in helping Watford become the first ever winners of the women's section and she said afterwards: "Winning the tournament with the team is great and to be selected as Player of the Tournament is really nice.
"It's been a really long day actually - it was an early start and finished quite late, but it's been worth it in the end and it's really good, especially here at Wembley as well."
After beating Docklands Ladies 3-1 in the Final, Kat, along with her Watford team mates, climbed the 100+ steps to the Royal Box to receive the trophy but, even after having played for a number of hours, it was a trip she was more than happy to make. "I was worried about falling over," she quipped. "I never thought I would walk up the steps at Wembley, especially the new one, but it's just amazing.
"The team we played in the Final (Docklands) were really good as well, they were strong and it was a good game. Miranda (Hall) got a good goal and there were two great finishes from Helen Lander, as she always does.
Kat gave a big 'thumbs up' to the tournament and felt that it could do a lot of good for the women's game. "It's really good," she says, "there are men here as well in their tournament, some of whom may never have watched women's football before so it's a good chance (for them) to see it.
"I've actually had a few comments from some men while wandering around, saying 'girls can play football' so it's quite nice to get some recognition!"
