A tough 2 games for Legends but my oh my we grew into ourselves. The derby was honesty a stunning exhibition match: Ally up against Hannah, Moni v River, Gaia v Kate, Ciara v Emma, Paula v Millie wowowow. Gorgeous. Potm was Paula for reading the game really well and having a ball in defence.
Tourney report from Laura HH: We entered 2 teams in the IWD tournament on Saturday, a beginners and an intermediate - and though neither team advanced past the group stage (but played bloody well in all their group games!) we had a great showing and some majestic play (and fan support!).
For the beginners team the fan player of the week went to Rachel for some amazing goalkeeping, ensuring that the team won their final group game after some hard fought games, against some very tough opposition!
Captain Scarlett handed her POTT spade (courtesy of Georgia Gilling) to Elaine for being an absolute brick wall in defence!
As for the intermediate team, an excellent showing from all and only lost out on a semi final place due to goal difference. Shout out to the whole team for some sleek and gorgeous play. But POTT went to Nina, who ensured we kept the opposition at bay, from fingertip saves to bottom corner dives she was a superhero between the sticks!
A wonderful session again on Wednesday, congratulations to all our players of the week
As ever thank you to our wonderful group of coaches that make our Wednesday nights so great. Remember to only sign up to training if you can definitely attend to make their life easier!
SATURDAY 11s BEG/INT
A hard worked 1-1 draw against Hackney Cubs. Fan player of the match was Catherine for some very speedy wing play. Captain Georgia's potm was Katie Crawford! Well played all !!
SATURDAY 11s ADV
The advanced 11s had a gorgeous friendly against Queerspace. Final score was 4-4, Captain G Bruce (they're back!!) gave potm to Scottee for a fabulous goal and great game.
It's Dr Kim! Or maybe Rosanna? Or the chocs.
