Teams from Nordic Soccer Club from Vermont, USA are on tour in the UK and sent 2 of their finest teams to Parmiters School on Monday evening to take on Watford Ladies in pre-arranged friendlies.

The Under 15 Wasps entertained the Nordic Soccer Under 15's whilst their Under 14's took on the might of newly crowned HGFPL Division 1 Champions, Watford Ladies Under 13 Hornets.

Whilst neither side knew what to expect from their opposition, they were two highly anticipated matches involving 4 sides that were, up until then, all unbeaten in their respective leagues. What was clear from the outset was that it was great to be able to have fun and share with them the female side of football, that is still increasing in popularity in this country with like minded people from accross the pond. Everyone was friendly, smiling and simpley enjoyed playing football. 

There were plenty of substitutions throughout, everyone was involved, regardless of the scorelines, which saw both sets of american visitors victorious. Coach Hector; from Nordic's Under 15 team and self confessed recent Watford FC fan since fellow countryman Miguel Layun joined, commented that he wanted to thank all of Watford Ladies FC players and Staff for having them along, and welcoming them to Watford. He was impressed with the football, the hospitality shown and really enjoyed the day.

All Players, parents and coaches got to chat and share stories and laughs after the games as well as some sandwiches and drinks. 

All in all, isn't it fantastic that so many people from different countries can be brought together, all in the name of Girls Football.

We have some friends in Vermont,USA now and who knows, Maybe we'll visit them next time aound!
