Club Doncaster U13 Girls (16) v Charnock Girls U13 Purple (0)
A steady start to the game, saw a determined Charnock take to the field. We found out Club Doncaster had some excellent, strong players and the first goal went in followed by 5 more up to half time, in pretty much the same way. The contributing factors included speed of movement, anticipation, ability to react and pressure/block, communication.
The girls tried to chase the ball down, making every attempt to take possession but they were up against it. Midfield put some strong runs in and some excellent tackling by Ruby saw her take possession and try to push towards the box. As did Milly, who made an amazing shot on target to be stopped by the opposition Goalie. Poppy did some excellent midfield tackling to throw off her player and was stopped by a strong defender. Iris, trying Midfield made some run ups, passing many players and provided some excellent opportunities. But unfortunately others weren't able to help and support and offer contingencies, something we will be working on and the girls will learn by their own experiences.
After half time, Club Doncaster delivered another 9 goals to the back of the net and we saw tired players who had worked hard with only a couple of subs; having to find more energy looked difficult. We need to work on fitness!️
It was a good match with a wealth of learning, decision making, development recognition and good team moral. Lots of positives
A lovely comment was received by the Doncaster Manager, ' a lovely group of girls, and keep working hard and you'll get there'.
⭐Another great performance in goal for Ella, having lots of practise with some excellent strikers there today.
⭐A special mention to Melika for her debut league match and showed some great potential and energy. You really wanted to get stuck in and that was incredible to see. Keep up the good work!
⭐Players of the Match - Iris and Ruby.
Well done to every player today!
