In what was a hard-fought contest, a brace from Alyssa Aherne either side of half-time put United in control on the scoreboard before Rebecca May’s 72nd-minute strike established some further breathing room.Information Guide Nigeria

Midfielder May then teed up Keira Barry for our fourth of the evening late on, while Millie Pullen pulled back a consolation for the Blues deep into stoppage time, but the young Reds would go on to hoist the trophy aloft at the end of an invaluable experience in the Midlands.
