EIGHTEEN games played and 18 games won.

Dunbar United Colts Girls’ under-13s defeated every side they came up against in 2020 as they smashed home 148 goals and conceded just 14. The ‘Invincibles’ played in the SWF South East Division from the beginning of last year.

Over the last two years, they have shown a dramatic improvement in form, gaining a promotion and reaching the League Plate Final in June 2019 where they were narrowly beaten by Hutchison Vale Girls.

During 2020, the girls took their performances to a different level and were outstanding throughout the season.

Despite the league and cup programme being cancelled due to the pandemic, Dunbar played some really strong teams on a seven-a-side basis in 2020 and emerged victorious.

The under-13s coaching team of Colin Watters, Craig Rapson and Stuart Craig have been with the girls for four years and will be taking the girls on to a new challenge in 2021 when they play 11-a-side matches for the first time – Covid restrictions permitting.

Watters, the team manager, said: “What an incredible journey this team has been on over the last three to four years. This is a special group of players who have worked incredibly hard to improve as a team.

“The improvement they have shown over the last two years has been very impressive and testament to the hard work and effort put in by the girls and the coaching team.”

“The Under-15s league will be a big step up for the girls however we are confident that this team will continue to improve and will make their mark at U15s level.”

The team consists of girls born in 2007, 2008 and 2009 and the majority of the girls have been playing together for at least three years.

A spokesman for the team added: “The group of girls have a great bond and strong friendships and this is evident in the way they play and even when they get together for fundraising activities.

“The Dunbar Girls Under-13s team is the first-ever female side from the town the and have led the way in the rise of girls football in Dunbar with almost 100 girls now involved across all the age groups.”
