Air Force Women win the FFSL Open Women’s Football Championship
Women’s Football Team of the Sri Lanka Air Force emerged Champions at the 2012 Women’s Open Football Championship organized by the Football Federation of Sri Lanka (FFSL) on 24 June 2012 beating the powerful SL Army Team by 1-0 at the finals. The Captain of the Air Force Team, VAW/01588 AC Angela TK, was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament.

In honour of this achievement, the Team and the Coach were felicitated by the Commander of the Air Force, Air Marshal Harsha Abeywickrama, at a simple ceremony held at the AFHQ Auditorium this morning; 28 June 2012. Chairman of the Air Force Football, Air Vice Marshal Jayanath Kumarasiri, Secretary Air Force Football, Group Captain Saman Kotage and Secretary Air Force Sports Council, Group Captain Roshan Biyanwila, also attended the ceremony.

SLAF’s Women’s Football has a short history of only two years with the women’s pool coming into being only in July 2010. However, the standards of the team developed at a rapid pace and, within a year, they showed outstanding results of their extreme commitment by becoming the Runners-up of this same Championship last year. This resulted in three players being drafted to the National Women’s Football Pool for the year 2011. Following their impressive victory in the Championship this year, eight players have been drafted to the National Pool.

Apart from the remarkable commitment and prowess of the players themselves, much is owed to the Coach, 15844 Flight Sergeant Bogahawatta, and the management of the Air Force Football.
