BOHEMIANS Girls U15 have scooped a major sporting award by being crowned this year's EDP/Active Sports Norfolk 2009 Team of the Year.

They beat off a large entry of very worthy entrants and were chosen winners with King's Lynn speedway team and Harleston Hockey Club finishing runners-up.

They were presented with their awards by Radio Norfolk presenter Chris Goreham and Norwich boxing legend Jon Thaxton at the Forum in Norwich.

This is the team's second season in the NWGFL. Their sporting behaviour was recognised internationally when they won the UNICEF fair play trophy at the Donosti Cup in Spain earlier this summer from an entry of 258 teams, also a great boost for girls' football in the county.

Last weekend the U14 team received the Norfolk County FA Fair Play Award for 2009 together with a cheque for �200.
