A girls football team from Ross will play in the final of a national trophy tomorrow (Saturday) at the FA's state of the art football centre as they look to end the season undefeated.

Ross Juniors under-12s have already been crowned champions of the Gloucester County Girls League, including thrashing Gloucester City Hawks 9-0.

Competing in the Gloucestershire League was better for the side as it provided more of a challenge, but being based in Herefordshire weren't able to enter any county competitions.

Instead the side entered into a futsal competition, similar to five-a-side football, and have been able to reach the national final at St. George's Park in Staffordshire.

Coach Paul Flitney is hoping the girls can beat Boldon CA Girls tomorrow as they push to finish the season unbeaten.

Flitney said: "We've been undefeated all season, there's teams like Gloucester City and Cheltenham Town, much bigger teams than Ross.

"The girls have done brilliantly, we entered two teams in a futsal competition and came first and second. One team then went into the West Midlands and won the regional division to reach the national semi-final.

"We then came up against Cambridge City and Leicester and won those games as well. So next up is St. George's Park against a team from Durham."

Tomorrow's final will kick off at 11am and is just one of 21 futsal games taking place at the FA's national football centre over the bank holiday weekend.

Flitney has had to cope with losing some key players over the past three years as they sign for bigger clubs, but said the core of the squad is still there.

He added: "Our goalkeeper was signed by Bristol City, Hannah Pritchard from Eastnor. In the past we've also lost to girls to Bristol City and Birmingham.

"We're losing key players but replacing them. Most the girls have been together four or five years, the core of the team is always there.

"We thought we'd do well this season, but not this well because it's a tough league, the real highlight is the futsal final."

At the end of June, Ross will travel to Nottingham University to take part in an invitational tournament for all teams who won their respective county leagues.
