Somerset Reds finish season undefeated
Somerset Cricket Club Reds are the undisputed queens of Under-13 girls football and they have the silverware to prove it.
The West Enders won three titles this past season to restore some sparkle at ‘Silver City’.
They also remained unbeaten throughout the entire 2011/12 Under 13 girls campaign.
Somerset Reds won Bermuda Football Association’s (BFA) inaugural Under-13 girls league with a game to spare, banging in 57 goals while conceding only three against to underline their superiority.
The league consisted of two teams from Somerset and one each from Dandy Town, Valencia Academy and PHC.
Somerset Reds also won the BFA’s inaugural Knockout Cup after edging PHC 1-0 in the final to complete the coveted league and cup double.
The West Enders then capped a fabulous season by winning their respective age group in the Kappa Classic for the third consecutive year after prevailing against Dandy Town in a penalty shootout.
Reds’ coaches, Paul and Lissa Fisher, attributed the team’s overwhelming success to a hard work ethic and dedication.
“The girls’ commitment and effort to training and games over the years has been proven by their success in the 2011/12 season,” read a joint statement on behalf of the Fishers. “The coaches are very proud of the players and the pride they have shown in representing, not only Somerset Cricket Club, but the community of Somerset.
“The majority of the team have been a part of Somerset Cricket Club’s youth girls program for many years, with some starting out from as young as five and six years old.
“We would like to thank, not only the players for their effort and commitment, but also the assistant coaches Tshcana Wade, Sean Dickinson and Chelsea Harvey.”
The Fishers also thanked parents and family members that came out in support of the club’s girls teams during the past season.
