Notts County under 10s took the long trip to Retford in a reverse fixture from the previous week and having only 7 available it was gunna be a tough game from the off as Retford had the luxury of nearly having 2 full sides!. With few chances again in the early quaters retford threw bodies behind the ball to snuff out chances. On a narrow and short pitch the girls couldnt play their passing and moving game and had to adapt with counter attacks. Captain for the day Rosie Bradley played central defence this week and marshalled it well as she made last second tackles when it was needed. Ellie Barrow was an attacking defender as she won balls well and set off up field delivering great crosses into the box. Lydia Sears playing her first full match played well in the middle of the park tackling well which gave her the player of the match trophy. But 7 v large squad who constantly had fresh legs and a couple of times County left themselves with a bit too much to do and found themselve trailing. With the last ten minute team talk the girls decided they hadnt come all this way not to score so as the whistle went they went for it winning 50/50 balls as did keeper Chelsea Musgrove who's getting more confident racing off her line to collect charging balls that came at her. Again Paris Greenham had a great game showing that swapping positions doesnt effect her game filling in at left back. Elena Gale went on some super mazey runs taking on players which was great to see as these quick breaks gave Phoebe -Wardle -Collins the chance to score the goal our team wanted as she danced through and tucked it away neatly. Yet again the under 10s were a credit to the club with a super display.
