Horsham Sparrows under-13 are enjoying an excellent season at present, but they have recently received recognition for their performances in the last campaign.
The team discovered last month that they had been selected as the winners of a Fair Play Award by the Sussex FA, choosing them from all the female youth teams playing football in the county.
The Sussex FA came to the decision after looking through the disciplinary records of all its female youth teams and, in conjunction with information received from the Sussex County Girls League, came to the decision that last season's under-12 team should win the award.
The winning team was awarded 20 commemorative medals, as well as a £200 donation towards club funds.
Horsham have been very successful in the three years they have been in the league, winning the Under 11 West Division in 2005-06 as well as the League Cup, before finishing as Under 12 West Division Champions last season and reaching the League Cup Final. This season, led the Under 13 West Division going into the Christmas break, having won all of their nine league matches to date.
The team contains eight girls who currently attend the Centres of Excellence for Girls at Brighton & Hove Albion and Fulham.
A delighted Horsham manager George Frett said: "I think it is important that a message of 'Fair Play' and 'Competitive' can be used in the same sentence, and that this achievement should be promoted and reported to the young boys and girls playing football today."
