Following on from the fantastic success of the All Britain Competitions (ABC’s) this year, this tournament will continue on to help to promote girls football. This tournament will be catalyst for future development with the Tara GFC and Gaelic games for girls across London and more so Britain. This tournament gives the girls great opportunities to demonstrate the skills they have been working on throughout the year and highlight the good work that all the clubs are doing. This annual tournament will give the girls opportunity to showcase and enhance their skills while interacting with other players from a wider opposition with teams throughout Britain and it’s a fitting end to a busy season. We are very grateful to Wexford man and sponsor Justin Ffrench (J Ffrench Ltd) for his generous sponsorship for this inaugural tournament with Shields, medals and a meal for all the girls. You are warmly invited to come along on the day to show your support for the girls.
