Monday 5s Beginners are firmly top of the table with a 3-0 win against Beasts from the East. Big thanks to manager Hannah ! Well done Charlotte on the double penalty save & Olivia for 2 goals!
Tuesday's POTM has to go to Ally. Well what to say. Ally got out of bed to help us out in goal for this late night Tuesday kick off. Excellent distribution, some very confident dribbling from the goal & saved us from being a player down. Captain Anna had to give it to her !
Training POTW - Coach Emily & Olivia (again!? she's back goals), Coach Ali & Sam (basketball legend - who knew it translated so easily to football!), Coach Ransford & Lottie (the other Lottie you were wonderful as well), and Coach Josh & baller (new?!) keeper Lorraine!
The Very Experienced 11s side lost after a valiant effort against top-of-the-table LFA Dynamos, managing one goal to Dynamos' 6. Coach Liv's Player of the Match was Esther Jones-Russel, who's defensive work rate was unparalelled. The skipper Sacha Hilhorst's Player of the Match was River Honer, who sailed one past the keeper thanks to a beautiful through ball from Binal Patel. While the team couldn't hold on to a draw as they hoped, they played some beautiful football and can build on that for the next match.
Player of the Day for All Stars was Lottie Strong (again?! what a week), who scored a bakers dozen 13 goals, cementing a win against FORMERLY undefeated Clapham Wasps.
A fantastic début for new keeper Nadia. Saved a pen (!) and so many more to keep us up 1-0 against Inter who are pretty good. Great team effort Legends, truly some lovely passing football!
Deema's potm was Olivia (honestly again ?! - life hack seems to be to get injured so that when you come back you get 3 POTM IN ONE WEEK!!) for fancy footwork, solid effort at the back and great progression up the pitch!
What a week of football, see ya next week goals xoxo
