The girls dominated Cleethorpes in every part of the pitch and thoroughly deserved their first league win.

Despite having players in defence who don’t usually play there (well done Kylie!) our back line looked well organised and determined. They tackled hard and on the rare occasion that the home team broke through, Ava shot out of goal and cleared the ball upfield. In the second half Lottie hardly had a shot to save.

Our midfielders and attackers worked together from the start – there were lots of nice passes – and it wasn’t long before the Bumblebees’ first ever league goal was scored by Sophie Grant who unlucky not to score at least a couple more. She hit the post twice.

Our girls kept attacking and were awarded a penalty that Player of Match Summer smashed home. 2-0 in the 23rd minute.

Gracie rounded off the scoring with a well taken goal shortly before half time.

We didn’t add to the goal tally in the second half but we would have done if the girls had remembered how the offside rule works!

A great result. Every player contributed, well done!
