West Ham Utd won the open age section of the Watford Ladies Tournament on Saturday at Sun Postal Sports with a 1-0 win over Ditton after another fiercely contested six-a-side competition.
Thirty squads battled through four group matches to determine a final 16 and then in four knockout rounds and it was the Hammers who emerged victorious having disposed of Denham and Enfield tournament winners Barnet in the semi final. The home club had no less than six squads in the initial line up but none survived beyond the quarter finals.
The last two home survivors were eliminated in penalty shootouts by the eventual winners and by Midland Combination league visitors Coventry Copsewood who, in the absence of 2009 winners Birmingham City, did the Midlands proud with fine displays to reach the last four. Copsewood eventually lost out by a single goal to Ditton who had won the Plate competition at Enfield last week and featured players from Millwall Lionesses .
The Final was a tight affair and, after an early goal, West Ham were indebted to Kelly Cooper for two fine saves to keep their lead intact and claim the trophy.
This well run and enjoyable day featured no less than eight age group competitions from Under-9s to Under16s running alongside the open age tournament over seven hours of play. The hosts fielded 18 squads altogether and other clubs well represented were Charlton Athletic, Denham, Garston, Tottenham Hotspur, Harvesters and St Albans Rangers.
