NUFC Girls Pipped In Premier League Kicks Cup Final

A team of girls representing Newcastle United narrowly missed out on victory at the 2014 Premier League Kicks Cup.

The girls were among 600 young people from 47 professional football clubs who descended on Hackney Marshes, in East London, to take part in the tournament on Saturday 11 October.

The girls played eight games in total, winning six, drawing one and losing in the final to impressive Kicks Millwall side against who they had previously drew 1-1 in the group stage.

Newcastle United Foundation also sent a boys team to play in the Under 16 tournament, coming up against Arsenal, Derby, Millwall, Plymouth and local rivals Sunderland. The side narrowly missed out to Arsenal, who progressed to the knockout stages, despite an unbeaten campaign.

The event was the first time every club running a Kicks programme took part with teams from Plymouth Argyle in the south west to Newcastle United in the North East, from Swansea City in the west to Norwich City in the east.

It was a local team, from West Ham United Community Trust, who lifted the new trophy in the Under-16s’ category, while in the Under-18 girls Millwall, from across the River Thames, emerged triumphant.

Premier League Kicks originated from the Kickz programme, a partnership between the Premier League and the Metropolitan Police that started in 2006 to use the power of football to build safer, stronger communities.

In the past year, the programme which is funded by the Premier League and Sport England, engaged 40,854 young people, who attended in total more than 600,000 times. Of the 780 venues used for Kicks, more than 25% were located in the top 10% most deprived areas in the country and 73% were in the top 30% most deprived areas.
