Yesterday afternoon the U16 girls football team travelled to Salisbury to play South Wilts Grammar in the second round of the County Cup. The team hadn’t played much football as a full 11-a-side team but they were all keen to get stuck in.
Natalie M kept the defence strong early on with Sian B making some really good saves. Georgia O was causing issues for the opposition up and down the right wing, making strong tackles and quick runs towards goal.
The girls were unlucky to be 1-0 down at half time. They came out fighting in the second half but conditions made it difficult for us to find the back of the net. SWG managed to find a few more gaps and the game finished 4-0. The work rate and commitment was superb from all of the girls and the score line didn’t reflect the game. They were unlucky not to score but kept fighting until the end.
