Report

The U9 girls faced Copthill on home soil this Wednesday.  We had both an A and B team out with all girls having the opportunity to play.  It is great to see the progress they have made since the start of the season and it is clear they are becoming more confident players as time progresses.

The U9A team, captained by Ruby S, had a convincing win beating Copthill 7-2.  Despite taking a while to get used to the larger pitch there were some lovely phases of play with the girls releasing the ball early and working together as a team to create attacking opportunities.   There were some fantastic crosses which led to several shots on goal.  A great performance, well done to all players.

The U9B team showed great resilience and made big improvements in the second half in working together as a team and looking out for one another on the pitch. Captain Hattie W played a strong game in defence and both Lucy S and Helena F worked hard to push the ball forward. Although the team lost 6-0 to Copthill, it is fantastic to see the girls becoming more confident on the pitch. Well done to all!
