Diamonds Girls Cap A Great Season For AFC R&D Community Teams

Mark Cullen provides this update from the AFC Rushden & Diamonds Community Section.


On the back of our under 14 Whites and TebUnder 13’s winning their leagues we had the prospect of a treble of league champions as our Under 13 Girls Whites were in top spot heading into the final weeks of the season, did they achieve? They did more than that! They made it a treble all on their own, winning both the League cup, the NTFA cup and finally wrapping up the league title on the 29th of May.

That is some special achievement, look at this for a final table;



21 wins from 23 with a goal difference of 163


The under 13’s Northamptonshire league and double cup winners 2017


Looking at the detail of their league season shows they didn’t lose a game at home whilst scoring 111 goals in 15 games.

There aren’t enough superlatives available to say how incredible this team is!

Their coaches informed the rest of the club via our Facebook page.

“FINALLY! Alex and I are EXTREMELY proud to announce that our ultra-special team U13 Whites Girls Team have officially been crowned U13 League Champions 2016/2017 season ???????????? – Truly extraordinary achievement from ALL Girls, NTFA Cup, League Cup and finishing with the League itself. THE TREBLE ???????????? ????”

“I’ll be completely honest, it’s been a very challenging season on and off the field, but I think our sheer fight, belief and determination has made our HUGE achievements possible and undoubtedly envied by ALL. Thank you from Alex and myself. Kevin Bull & Alex Long”

I would like to put on record my appreciation for everyone involved with our girls section, they are a credit to the club, a team in all senses of the word, from their inception, under the leadership of Kevin Bull, they have provided an amazing platform for girls from around East Northants to play the sport they love, something they should all be hugely proud of, I know I’m proud of them.
