The Bumblebees lost their first league match but there were, as they say, many ‘positives’.

Our girls did exceptionally well to hold a strong Barton team to 0-0 at half-time and were unlucky not be one or two goals up at the break.  It was obvious the home team were worried.

The second half began with Barton being awarded a direct free kick (for handball) just outside our penalty area. It was smashed into the back of net – Ava had no chance of stopping it – and from then on it was one way traffic. The Bumblebees defended valiantly but the Barton girls were strong and goals went in regularly.

In terms of hard work and ‘never say die’ attitude, it was a good start to the girls league campaign. Plenty to build on.
