SUNDAY 5s and 7s
Five a side: All Stars had a wonderful Sunday - working triangles up and down the pitch. Captain Lara's Player Of The Week was the one & only Isy Wilson. She was up & down the pitch, keeping the tempo high and getting lots of beautiful shots off - which she said was "thanks to Wednesdays shooting drill". Congratulations Isy!
Seven a side: POTM Cathrine Levi ,she showed grit and determination on the wing, the team created triangles there was some great passing and Communication happening, 1st game against brockwell was 0-0 second game we lost 1-0 in the last 20 seconds but our play was something we could be very proud of !
Players of the week at training this week were Issy, Katie, Laura, Florrie and Hannah! Well done all!
