Player of the match: Lottie

I was really impressed with the way the girls played today.

Everyone played their socks off against a more experienced team that sits unbeaten at the top of the table.

Our three stand in goalkeepers (Summer, Ayse, Lila) were outstanding, our defenders understand their positions, tackle hard and aren’t afraid to try to play the ball out of defence. In fact there was really good ‘heads up’ passing going on in every part of the pitch.

Midfielders are tracking back to help the defenders and up front we gave the home defence plenty to think about.

And just as importantly, the game was played in a competitive but friendly way. There were lots of smiles on faces at the end!

Lottie won the Player of the Match award for the effort she put in, the way she positive way she tackled (scary hard) and how she read the game. But I could have picked anyone, to be honest.

We’re back there next Saturday. Looking forward to it!
