Today was our first match, albeit a friendly against the U14 Guiseley girls, on the much bigger 9 a side pitch.
We have several players that have recently joined our squad, Amber, Ellie G, Ellie K , Lizzie our new keeper and also a welcome return from Abbey. For all of the squad both current and new players, this was a real baptism of fire. Our team was reduced to 7 players matching the U14’s squad creating 2 substitutes.
Given the reduced squad numbers and the much bigger pitch we really had our work cut out from the off but our girls rose to the challenge admirably. The U14’s girls took an early lead but we quickly equalized and from there on the same patterned continued , they scored and we pulled one back.
The final score of 4 all does not really convey how well the U13’s played today, I believe we have a very exciting season ahead of us. Many thanks to the U14’s for a great game of football.
Today’s U13 team were, Lizzie, Eleanor, Abbey, Amber, Lauren, Ellie G, Ellie K, MIca and Holly (C).
I think we can take many positives from today’s game.
Well done girls.
