Coalville Town Ravenettes u8s v Rugby Town Wildcats u8s

Team: Anna, Chloe, Freya, Holly, Maddie & Megan

The under 8 Wildcats were away this week against a strong Coalville Ravenettes team and from the previous fixture the girls knew it was going to be a tough match, wow…how they impressed!

Megan started in goal for the first half, making some great saves from many tricky shots from the opposition. Holly defended brilliantly at the back, reading the game well and playing the ball forward for her teammates to attack. Maddie and Anna were strong together in midfield with lots of tackling and passing play whilst Chloe and Freya troubled the defence on many occasions, all playing a part in an excellent first half.

With the second half due to start and with our usual second half goalkeeper absent from the game, Freya volunteered to share the half in goal, racing from her line on one occasion to clear the ball from the attacker, Chloe was also outstanding when volunteering to go in goal. The Wildcats again in the second half played some amazing football, passing and moving for one another.

Both the parents and I can only say how proud we are with all of the team, they play with a constant smile on their face and it’s proving that the training sessions and matches each week are increasing their skills and teamwork week by week, they really are a brilliant team, well done girls!!
