Charnock Ridgeway Girls U9 Red v Crosspool Girls U9
Our first game of the season saw us give 5 players their league debuts, alongside 3 senior players who stayed with the U9s from last season.
Charnock started the game the brighter of the teams pressing high and forcing a few early corners with Ava leading the line! Early quick-fire goals against the run of play knocked us for a while, but with the experience of our senior duo of Ivy and Scarlett digging in and working hard the team started to turn things around. As we got back in the game Maya and Elsie started to have their say bursting from defence to really put the pressure on!
Matilda played brilliantly in the net keeping Crosspool at bay and putting her hands where most players wouldn’t put their feet! Charnock kept going, with Daisy was having a solid game at the back and Ivy, Elsie, Scarlett and Maya all testing their back line.
There was great work on the left-hand side from Ava and Maya to get it in the box to Ivy who laid it back into Maya's path for her 1st goal of the season! Charnock continued to put pressure on with Veronica causing Crosspool issues and Elsie going close from 5 yards out only to catch it too well and put it over the bar!
Overall great team performance and we build from here, well done girls!!
