PLAYER SHOUT-OUTS

MILE END MONDAY FRIENDLY

This was a great high-scoring derby in Mile End. Both teams battled hard and some wonderful football was seen. I can't believe im writing this but Esther was POTM three times this xmas break. She's on fire at the moment - make sure to sign up for training to witness it. A massive second POTM was Hannah for constant defensive / rush goalie / winger action. Some great saves while injured and an absolute battling force outfield. What a pleasure!




XMAS KICKAROUNDS

An evenly battled pre-xmas kickaround! POTM were Farida for some glorious passes in the first half that were *chefs kiss* and to Kim for some gorgeous play and /or Lily (she's BACK) for being an absolute bloody joy.



Another kickaround, another potm for Esther for an outstanding defensive performance and also for Nura for the most beautiful passing through the middle of the pitch!


And finally, a delightfully muddy NYE kickaround with the goals! Shout out to Holly for the half-time oranges . POTM was Esther for being impossible to get past and Gus for making some beautiful runs and getting past us all!
