Avon Valley beat Rugby High to win U16s title

Warwickshire Schools

FA County Cup final

Avon Valley 4

Rugby High 1

Girls from Rugby High School and Avon Valley battled out the under 16s county final at Butlin Road on Wednesday evening.

Abbie Vassell opened the scoring for Avon Valley from a Danielle Hughes through-ball. Substitute Katie Trevor scrambled the ball into the net for 2-0, but Rugby High responded quickly, determined to stay in the game and Mia Bentovim scored just before half time.

The second half saw Valley the stronger side. Vassell grabbed her second before a screaming long-range shot secured her hat-trick just before the final whistle.

The teams would like to thank Rugby Town for hosting the match and all those who supported them.
