Forest reclaim Victoria Trophy
 Women's Football News 13 Jul 2009
 
Forest reclaim Victoria Trophy - 13 Jul 2009 - Women's Football NewsNottingham Forest won the senior section of the Victoria Trophy, the largest five-a-side tournament in the UK for women and girls, for the first time since 2001.
 
The event, taking place at the Victoria Embankment, attracted over 130 teams from all over the country and the high standards were there for all to see.
 
Matt Sismey, of event sponsors Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: "The turnout has been incredible and it's great to see so many women and girls getting out and playing football. We've been really pleased with the impact Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has made on this event and hope that our presence has highlighted to the girls and women involved today that they can be firefighters. It would be fantastic if one of the footballers here today is a Chief Fire Officer of the future!"
 
2009 is the first year the Fire Service have sponsored the event and they held various demonstrations during the day - including cutting someone free from a "car crash" - to show that women firefighters are needed just as much as men.
 
Ian Holloway, Sports Events Officer with event organisers Nottingham City Council, was equally impressed with the standard of play. "Right the way through from the U10's to the Open Age group, the football on show has been of a consistently high quality," he said. "As well as that, there has been great competition and several of the finals have gone right down to the wire to determine a winner."
 
All in all, over 1,200 players took part in 800 matches from 9am through the day to 6pm, with home team Nottingham Forest dramatically winning 1-0 in the dying seconds of extra time in the final of the senior section against North 'N' South United.
 
Other winners on the day included Malet YC, who were crowned champions of the Under-13, 14 and 15 competition, and Leicester City Ladies Foxes who triumphed at Under-12 level. The full list of finalists is as follows:
 
Under-10: Peterborough United Girls 0 Woodlands FC 0

Under-11: Linby Ladies 2 Southwell United 0
Under-12: Leicester City Ladies Foxes 1 Toton Girls 0
