Well done team. What a daunting task we had head of us. That has to be the toughest line up I have ever seen for a girl’s tournament. Arsenal PDP, Reading Academy’s feeder team, Watford Academy, Garston’s team made up from their best U10 player’s including Garston Puma’s players who played up a division at U11’s this season and not forgetting the hosts Denham who finished as the strongest U10’s team in the HGFPL top division this season.
These teams were also aware of how good you lot are as a team, with many compliments being paid for the way you have all played this season so far.
It was always going to be difficult to find goals today with Teagan Scarlett, Scarlett Robb and Esme Dickson all unavailable.
Luckily we had a guest appearance from one of our team’s ex-players, Laila Brown. Laila has been playing football for Arsenal’s RTC this season. Well done and thank you Laila for scoring all of our four goals today.
It was a slow nervy start in very hot and humid conditions. It took time for all the players to gel and play together as a team. The confidence started to grow when the first goals were scored in the second game Vs Maidenhead. The girls qualified for the quarter finals and won 1-0 Vs Pitshanger. In the Semi-final we came up against Reading for the second time. This time the girls stepped up their game and matched the Reading side but were very unfortunate to lose 1-0.
Well done girls for showing great team spirt and determination again against tough opposition in hot and humid weather conditions.
