Rugby Town Girls FC u12s v Coalville Town Girls FC u12s

After a respectfully observed two minutes silence, Rugby Town came out ready to do battle, a fantastic mazy run by Mims, some great combination play between the defenders and midfield saw Rugby cruising and in control of the game.

After half time, Coalville were determined to get back on top. Their heads never dropped while Rugby became more bothered about criticising each other than maintaining the momentum of the first half.

The defensive skills of Maddie and Freya, ably supported by Elle, Thea and Olivia in midfield, with a strong performance from Lyla saw Rugby Town play some fantastic football.

With Lucy, Amaani and Nathalie up front threatening the keeper as well as Mims creativity mean that this team should and could be unbeatable. Coalville were lucky to be gifted chances but if our heads drop and we start being negative with our own players then we’ll never be the team we are capable of being. Well done to Player of The Match Freya and SOS Lyla.
