Rugby Town Girls FC u12s v Oadby & Wigston United u12s

An often used football cliche is that the score line doesn’t reflect the game but it was so relevant today. After last week’s disappointing performance, we wanted to concentrate on positive team work and support for each other. The girls played probably their best football of the season so far, passing and moving, playing out from the back, all the things we’ve been working on at training for the last few months coming to fruition.

Freya and Maddie were totally committed in defence, standout performances in midfield from Olivia and Elle, with Thea and Tilly both having their best game. Lucy was strong and determined upfront as was Nathalie. Lyla showed how much her confidence and knowledge of the game is growing, and Mims is finally becoming a real team player, with her passes and creativity setting up chances for her teammates. If we continue like this the results will definitely come our way. Well done girls

Congratulations to POTM Olivia and SOS winner Elle.
