Girls' Canary Cup 2023 Recap

Earlier this week, The Nest hosted the second annual instalment of the Girls’ Canary Cup, with travelling teams from our respective CCOs across the country arriving in Norfolk to compete for the trophy.

The tournament spanned two days, with the Monday entertaining the U10s and U14s fixtures and Tuesday seeing the U12s and U16s take centre stage.

Teams from all throughout the football pyramid attended, featuring sides from Oxford United, Peterborough, Birmingham, Brentford, Brighton, Cambridge, Colchester, Devon FA and Norwich.

Day one saw Brighton emerge victorious in the U10s tournament, beating Cambridge in a closely contested final. In the U14 final, a strong Devon FA side took home the silverware, with Peterborough finishing as runners-up.

A cold and wet second day saw hosts Norwich overcome the tricky conditions to squeeze past Brighton 1-0 in the U12s final in an entertaining encounter, whilst the U16 Norwich City Girls were on the wrong end of the same result in their final, missing out to an impressive Devon FA side.

Day two also saw a surprise visit from Norwich City Women’s Ceri Flye and Lauren Tomlinson, who distributed the winners’ and runners-up trophies respectively.

The two days were packed with great goals, penalty drama and excellent teamwork, with Girls’ Football Development Officer Summer Ward commenting on the football on display at The Nest:

“The Girls’ Canary Cup is a great opportunity for teams from across the country to come together and play in a competitive tournament format. We’re so lucky to have a venue like the Nest and it was great to see such a high level of talent on display from all age groups across the two days.”

“We can’t wait for the Girls’ Canary Cup to return next year, hopefully on an even bigger scale!”
