UKAF Women lose President's Cup on penalties

The Dutch Forces claimed the trophy after a 1-1 draw in Havant.

The UK Armed Forces women's football team have been beaten by the Dutch Forces on penalties in the deciding President's Cup match.

Maura Missaglia opened the scoring for the Dutch but Libby Dixon's first-half equaliser made it 1-1 at the break.

UKAF had a number of chances to win the match but it went to penalties where the home side lost 5-4.

The match, which was broadcast LIVE on the Forces News Facebook page, was UKAF's first international fixture since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jade Widdows and Shauna Jenkins were the unfortunate players to miss from the spot for UKAF.

The men's team face the Irish Defence Forces tomorrow and that match is also LIVE on the Forces News Facebook page.
