The girls all turned up in their new training jackets. They looked very smart!New training jackets

The Cleethorpes team have played together for two years and it showed. They started fast, scoring after just 5 minutes.

But our girls weren’t worried and Ayşe struck back for the Bees just three minutes later with a well timed flick into the home team’s goal.

Two minutes later Cleethorpes went ahead again. It looked as though there was going to be a lot of goals but it stayed 2-1 to Cleethorpes until the break.

Ten minutes into the second half Cleethorpes went 3-1 up but our girls just kept running, passing and tackling. They got their reward after 50 minutes when Ayşe smashed an unstoppable shot past the home ‘keeper. Great goal 🙂

3-2 with ten minutes left. Game on…

Our girls tried hard to get an equaliser but the home team managed to hold on and looked quite relieved when the final whistle went.

There were many standout performances from the girls today. Ellie, Evie, Martha and Lily understand their roles and keep a good ‘shape’ on the pitch. The midfielders – Summer, Kylie, Gracie, Connie, Kiara, Sophie S and Sophie G – attack and defend and the forwards – Ayşe, Lila – always pose a threat. In goal, Ava was outstanding, drawing praise from the home team’s coach.

It’s looking very promising! League table
