SIX Bradford City Girls teams and several of the district's Under-18 teams were involved in semi-final action last weekend.

And three of City’s teams are through to their finals.

The U11s played a really competitive game against Adwick Warriors at Woodhouse Grove, as a last-minute free kick saw the girls through to the final against Rothwell.

The U15s are still up for a league and League Cup double, after Nell Hepton, Mia Jacobs and a Crystal Boyce brace put them through to a final against Skelmanthorpe.

And Michelle Woollias’ U16s won 3–1 at Battyeford, and will play Brighouse Juniors in their League Shield final.

Queensbury Celtic were missing four key centre forwards, but were still hopeful of reaching the Yorkshire U18 League Shield final, as they welcomed Nidd United to Pit Lane.

On the quarter-hour mark, Nidd took the lead after a perfectly-timed run. But the sides were level at the break after Olivia Fraser hit the back of the net from 40 yards.

In the second half of an entertaining, competitive game, Queensbury went into the lead after Connie Lea’s cheeky chip over the Nidd keeper.

However the visitors equalised not long after, and it went to the dreaded penalty shoot-out, which saw Nidd go through 4–2.

In the other semi-final, Guiseley substitute Molly Lanfear scored the only goal of the game at Castleford, to book a place in Saturday morning’s final at Tingley.

In the Yorkshire U18 Cup, Bradford City lost 3–2 at Brighouse Town.

City’s U12s also lost 3–2 at Brighouse Town in their West Riding Girls’ League Cup game.

The U14s drew 1–1 at Horsforth, but went out 2–1 on penalties.

Meanwhile, in open-age football, the West Riding County Women's Football League drew to a conclusion with the Invitational Cup Final at Woodlesford.

Ripon City’s goalkeeper made a few fantastic saves, and her team had many chances to make a game of it, but Colin Sherman’s Yorkshire Amateur side won 6–0.

Several teams are to join the WRCWFL next season, including Athletico, based at the John Craig Centre.

Meanwhile, Bradford (Park Avenue) Ladies are to run a reserve side, and are continuing to train on Thursday evenings at Horsfall (7:30pm-9pm) throughout the summer.

Burley Trojans will welcome players of all abilities to Burley in Wharfedale rec. from the end of July, to their Tuesday and Thursday sessions.

Finally, on June 26, Queensbury will be playing their last game before joining open-age. They are at home to Norristhorpe, who need a win for the U18 Division Two South championship.

All teams are looking for new players to join them for the new season, and anyone interested should contact the teams through their social media channels.

Brighouse Town Women have arranged some pre-season games before the Northern Premier Division starts on August 15. They are to host Lincoln City on July 11 and the following week, Blackburn Rovers.

They are have also arranged to play Manchester United's U21s on August 8.

On July 25, Brighouse are still hopeful of welcoming Scottish giants Celtic to the Yorkshire Payments Stadium.
