West Ham Utd Under-16 won the UK Tesco Cup Final, held at the Reebok Stadium, on Sunday.
The Hammers lifted the trophy after beating Hibernian, representing Scotland, 2-1 in the Final.
West Ham first faced tough competition from Cardiff City in a closely fought semi final. The game finished goalless but Jim Maycock's side held their nerve in the resulting penalty shootout, winning 3-2. In the Final, a brace of goals from Danielle Robertson ensured that West Ham were crowned UK Tesco Cup Champions.
Former England international and Liverpool legend John Barnes attended the event and chose Danielle Robertson as Player of the Tournament, as a result of her double goal strike in the Final. Team mate Lauren Picton was awarded Goalkeeper of the Tournament whilst Cherrie Beassant of Cardiff City was named Best Defender. The Midfield and Forward awards went to Hibernian duo Caroline Weir and Siobhan Hunter respectively.
