Hackney Jurassics captain Renee De La Cruz received the FA People’s Cup on Saturday during the FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea.

The local team won the veteran female category again earlier this month after doing so previously in 2016.

De La Cruz’s side defeated Armley 2-0 in the FA People’s Cup this year at Play Football Birmingham to retain the title.

And on Saturday the squad were present at Wembley to watch Arsenal beat Chelsea in a thrilling final.

De La Cruz received the trophy from Gabby Logan and got the chance to grace the hallow Wembley turf.

It was another memorable occasion for Jurassics who are made up of women aged 35 and over.

They have been playing in and around Hackney and Islington for a number of years and socialise in the Hemingford Arms.

After back-to-back success, Jurassics’ will look to make it a treble in the 2018 FA People’s Cup.

Team: Renee De La Cruz, Cristina Polania, Fran Cagetti, Vanessa Wilson, Naina Patel, Jackie Pidcock, Sharon Hopkins, Alice Twaite.
