NEWTON Abbot College were one of 19 teams to compete in a football tournament organised by Exeter City Community Trust.

More than 150 budding female footballers took to the pitch for a tournament established to honour the memory of former journalist and Trust operations manager, Catherine Fraser.

NAC won the Plate at Exwick Sports Hub, triumphing over Teign School, whilst Clyst Valley Community College claimed the overall top spot.

This annual six-a-side competition for year seven girls serves as a testament to Catherine’s legacy.

Catherine’s mother, Glenda Riley, and daughter, Dulcie Fraser, made the presentations, the latter having donated the funds to establish the annual tournament after Catherine passed away in 2015 from breast cancer.

Jamie Vittles, Chief Executive of Exeter City Community Trust, said the following about the tournament: “She was an inspirational role model and was passionate about creating opportunities for girls to engage in football. This tournament stands as a fitting tribute to her legacy.
