The first game was against National Champions Beach Academy from Croyde and it proved to be a hard test. Ashcombe players Ilona McDonald and Molly Russell led the Ashcombe attack but Beach Academy won 2-0. Ashcombe then faced Richmond who were also national finalists last year and again lost 2-0. In their final match Ashcombe played Westminster from London and with excellent play by Leah Blight, Gillian Quinn, Amy Antonio and Ellie Kim took the match 2-0 and secured 5th place. Coaches Freda Bussey and Will McDonald were pleased with the performance of the young team but know there is a lot to do to work towards next seasons competitions.
