Woburn and Wavendon Lionesses got their hands on their first ever piece of silverware by lifting the Beds FA Senior Girls Development Cup.

In a repeat of last season’s final, the U16s side reversed the result of 12 months ago, beating AFC Kempston 2-0 on their own pitch to lift the cup.

For 55 minutes, the crowd experienced a tight affair, with both side having their chances but not quite finding the net.

That all changed after 55 minutes though when Mille Glenn’s fine headed goal from a corner broke the deadlock.

Ten minutes later, Molly Hughes hit a trademark 30 yard effort which sailed into the net.

Holding on until the end, the Lionesses erupted in celebration as they lifted the cup.

The U16’s hope to play as an U18 team next season. If you’re interesting in playing, email
