Ladies team celebrate five-a-side win

Norwich ladies five-a-side football team “Pidge might fly” have been crowned Monday night league champions at the Goals Soccer Centre in Norwich.

The team who play at the centre in Norwich off Hall Road are made up of a mix of friends from six different 11-a-side rival teams. Last season they scored 246 goals and only conceded 44 in 10 games.

They are top of the Norwich form guide and second in the Goals National five-a-side form guide which includes all 43 centres.

However, the team are set to lose their best player Charlie Branch as she has earned a full scholarship to go and play semi-professional football in America for Monroe Mustangs where she will attend Munroe College.

General Manager for Goals in Norwich James Lalonde said: “Charlie’s nickname is Pigeon which is how they formed their team name. They decided to change the team name from ‘pigs might fly’ to ‘Pidge might fly’ when news of her scholarship arrived.

He added: “She is in a class of her own when on the pitch and we wish her all the best in the future”.
