Charnock Girls U13 Reds (1) v Chesterfield FC Women U13 Blue (4) (reversed)
Goal scorer - Grace B.
This should have been a home game but due to pitch conditions was a reversed fixture. A lot of work done by both teams and the ref to get the game played.
Chesterfield are a strong team but the girls held their own and the effort all the girls put in was there to see - a real team effort. All players worked there socks off, and there were a lot of positives from the game.
0-0 until 25 min into first half when Chesterfield scored 2 in a short time but the girls kept their heads up and Grace hit the cross bar with a great strike. In the second half we had chances, and again worked hard but Chesterfield scored 2 more goals. Eventually we got a goal from Grace which I think we deserved for how the girls played and it lifted their spirits.
We didn't have our regular keeper so again Chloe C, Amber and Isabel P volunteered for net.
Player of the Match was Amelia. She played the full match, best game I’ve seen her play, won every ball, great running with the ball out from the back. Don’t think a player got past her, great tackling, strong and solid defending. Tracked back, never gave up and kept on running. Should be very proud of herself. Well done and well deserved.
The match was what grassroots is all about - great game of grassroots football.
