Alnwick won the match 6-1 with goals from Lawson (2), Barrett, Munro, Brown and Tang. The player-of-the-match award went to Mel Darling.

Following their victory captain Georgia Thompson was presented with the trophy which brought to an end a highly successful first season for the club.

Later she said: “It’s been an unbelieveable year. I am just so proud to captain this side, but we couldn’t have done it without our coaches Peter and Paul. I can’t wait to see what next season brings.”
