Windsor girls create history with 1st ever league title

Written by  Musselburgh Windsor Girls

Musselburgh Windsor U13s Girls created club history in winning the Hayley Lauder League Championship. The first Girls team at the club to win any major honour.

After a shaky start to the campaign with just 2 points from their first 3 games they went on an 11 game winning run to clinch the League Title by 7 points. The season had its ups and downs with their Captain Ceri Thomas suffering a serious knee injury in a freak accident in a friendly midway through the season putting her out of action for the remainder but the girls didn’t let that affect their performances on the pitch. With a strong squad of determined Girls who all but one player were playing their first year at U13s and four players who could still have been playing U11s, they continued to surprise both coaches and parent each week as they went from strength to strength and grew in confidence with every game they played .

The turning point in the season was when they came up against a strong Hutchie Vale side who had been leading the League for a few weeks in the last game before the summer break. A win for Windsor would put them 2 point ahead of Hutchie and top of the league at the break. Windsor sensed the chance was there for them and grabbed it with both hands with a convincing win and after that never looked back. Ironically they clinched the League in a midweek fixture that they weren’t playing in when Leith Athletic won against Broxburn who were the only team that could catch Windsor.

The Windsor U13s Girls have achieved the title by applying themselves and a great deal of hard work and the support from their parents and very proud coaches Robert Taylor and Michael Windram

Congratulations again Musselburgh Windsor U13s Girls

League winning squad:  Jade Sinclair, Brooke Robertson, Ceri Thomas, Hannah Jack , Jennifer Gallagher , Sarah Knox , Cleo Paris , Sasha Hewett-Marshall , Freyja Bjarnason , Megan Wood , Amy Forbes , Mia Brotherston & Rosie Livingston.
