Steph Greensill, Girls Football Coach for Wigan Athletic Community Trust, said: “It was a great achievement for the girls to win the tournament, obviously the local rivalry added even more to that sense of competition for the final!

“The FA’s Girls Football Week is a great way to celebrate the opportunities that are available for girls to play football and hopefully through our team winning today and tournaments like this taking place, it will make more girls aware of the sessions that they can join in with.”
