WHAT an occasion it turned out to be for a Summer League first over the weekend.

For the first time in its long history, the league staged a women's seven-a-side competition.

Henllan played host to the inaugural event and it turned out to be a successful day.

A Summer League statement read: "Thanks to everyone who supported the first ever Llandyrnog District Summer League Women's tournament and especially the eight teams that competed this year - Cefn, Clawddnewydd, Henllan, Llandyrnog, Llanfair, Llanrhaeadr, Nantglyn ac Yscefiog."

After a number of competitive encounters throughout the tournament, it was hosts Henllan and Ysceifiog who made it through to the inaugural final.

It was Henllan who were the first winners of the trophy as they prevailed 3-0 in the final.

In a post on Twitter, Henllan FC said: 󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿"What a fantastic advert for @_summer_league football, well done to all the girls/ladies from @henllanfc @YsceifiogFC @CpdCefn @CPDLlanfairDCFC @DyrnyFC @CPDNantglyn @CPClawddFC @LlanrhaeadrFcSL."

Llanfair and Cefn both battled their way through to the semi-finals.

Ysceifiog defeated Llanfair 2-0 in their last-four encounter, while Henllan pipped Cefn on penalties.

Meanwhile, in a post on Twitter, Llandyrnog's Jimmy McNally said: "An absolute honour and a pleasure to manage the first ever Llandyrnog ladies team.

"Great effort from all involved."

The seven-a-side tournaments will continue over the next couple of weeks.

The primary schools event takes place at Llanfair DC this Sunday, July 2.

Then, on Sunday, July 9, the under 16s' tournament will be played at Rhydymwyn.
