Doncaster Belles under 15s won six games out of six to be crowned champions at the ESF Festival of Football at Butlins in Skegness.

Victory saw them qualify for the national finals, to be held St George’s Park in July.

With over 1200 youth football teams participating every year, the ESF competition is the biggest youth football festival in the UK.

Danny Murphy, who along with Belles star Sue Smith presented the team with their awards, said: “ESF continues to produce a really high standard of football and all the children who attend look like they’ve had a great time. With so many teams involved being crowned ESF Champions is no mean feat, so congratulations to Doncaster Belles.”

n Belles’ first team saw their FAWSL1 clash with Arsenal rained off on Saturday. They do not play again until June 26 when they visit Notts County.
