Burnley Girls and Ladies have enjoyed another season of success.

The Under 13s won the West Lancashire League and Cup double after a hard-fought season, over coming strong teams from Blackpool and Academy Juniors, and beating Preston North End 2-1 in the league cup final.

This team started four years ago and lost its first five games 10-0, finishing bottom of the league, so it has been quite a turnaround.

Congratulations also go to the Under 11s and 12s, who also reached their respective league cup finals, with both narrowly beaten 2-0 by Manchester City and 3-0 by Blackpool.

The Under 14s and 10s also had fantastic seasons, finishing third and fourth in their competetive leagues.

The Junior Development squad and Under 9 took part in their first tournament earlier this month against eight other boys’ teams and did the club proud.

Finally the open age ladies started the season strongly and were challenging for promotion right up to the final few games, eventually finishing fourth in the league.

Burnley are always on the look out for new players of all ages, and anyone interested can contact Lynn on 01200 427079 or 07838102115, or visit www.digitalfc.com/bfcgirlsandladies
