A GIRL’S football team has made history after triumphing in a Spanish boys league.
It comes after the girls of AEM Lleida felt they had no real competition so signed up for competition against their male counterparts.
Two seasons later they got their hands on the winners’ trophy, with top scorer Andrea Gomez netting 38 times. The team lost just once in 22 games.
Sergio Gonzalez, the club’s president, said: “A few parents called us crazy when we registered the team. If this had gone very wrong, we would have been held responsible for humiliating the girls.”
One boy said: “It’s hard to lose against girls, but these ones really are very good.”
AEM is now trying to raise €10,000 due to a lack of resources, which it says is acting as a ‘barrier’ to talent development.
