The U11 girls travelled to Stamford on Wednesday to face teams from Grantham, Leicester Grammar and the hosts themselves. Despite being down to 6-a-side, the girls adapted well and had a great afternoon of hockey.
The A team had two confident wins against Stamford and Leicester Grammar with lots of goals being scored. It was great to see Megan out field this week and she enjoyed scoring several of these goals rather than saving them (though her feet did get in the way at times!). Alicia played some great hockey at the back, supporting the ball carrier and switching the ball to good effect. I was also impressed with Kitty who used Alicia well and worked hard off the ball. Jemima and Millie worked tirelessly in the midfield once again and became very adept at moving the ball forward and out to Millie on the wing, demonstrating super pace and control. This week Annabelle played in goal and while the first two games were very quiet, she was put under more pressure in the final game against Grantham. Well done to all players and thank you to Kitty who captained the team very well.
