Following a penalty shoot-out victory over George Spencer in the final, Kimberley moved on to the next stage.
FITC Coach and Derby County Ladies player Lauren Creswell said: “All the teams put in a valiant effort throughout the tournament.
“Some of the players showed a promise of talent that will secure the future of women’s football.”
