Today saw the u11's play at home against West Bridgford Red, with only 5 girls available we borrowed some of the U9's to make up the team. The girls battled strongly today and took on board what was worked on in training. Our first shot came from some good work by Tia Wheelhouse teeing Sally Warsop-Hook up, for her shot to be saved well. Down the other end, Rebecca Needham stood strong in goal making some key saves with Rosie Bradley and Kayleigh Street working well in defence. With Rebecca Needham passing the ball out wide to Kayleigh Steet or Rosie Bradley from goal kicks had great effect. Putting a great battling display in midfield were Mia Harrison, Tia Wheelhouse and Ameliyah Rimmell, working tirelessly to win the ball back and play up towards Sally Warsop-Hook. Unfortunately today, West Bridgford were clinical in front of goal and took the lead, some wonderful defending for Kayleigh Street and good goal keeping from Rebecca Needham kept them from extending the lead. Mia Harrison took a little knock, so on came Ellie-May Bramley who was full of running and broke up play well. At half time we looked to challenge the girls to keep playing positively out from defence and to increase the number of chances they had on the opposition goal. The girls played well and are improving week in week out and hopefully this will continue. Thank you to the U9s who stepped up to help today. Player of the match Rosie Bradley
