A crisp, bright morning began with a minute’s silence in remembrance of the fallen before we faced Belper u10’s for the second time this season.

An end to end match yet again with our girls showing no signs that they were a year younger than their opposition!

Emma started off the match in goal putting in a confident performance and not being afraid to come off her line to make some great stops. She spent the second half in defence showing the same fearless nature!

The whole team are beginning to show signs of developing a mature and thoughtful approach but we do have to remind ourselves that they haven’t been playing together very long and the teams they are facing have had over a year together.

Ava and Kathryn both played well in defence, both having the confidence to run up when needed. Evie put in some fantastic tackles and showed some real skill on the ball.

Lucy and Imogen make a fantastic strike team up front, taking a wing each and appearing wherever they need to be to receive the ball.

Caiomha has been a brilliant addition to the team, fast and fearless and all over the pitch when called upon!

Jasmine had a good game, again some solid tackles and passes.

Daisy made a few great runs in the first half but really came into her own in the second half where she took over the mantle of goalkeeper. A couple of cracking saves kept us in the game.

Immie was the usual unmovable defender, sliding all over the place and taking on players - running rings round some of them! She did seem to spend more time on the floor this week but never let the ball go!

She made a fabulous clearance followed up by an unfortunate knock in to our own net (she’s been telling everyone she scored on her birthday neglecting to mention it was in the wrong goal!!).

End to end stuff resulted in a hard fought draw - definitely the right result on the day!
