Dearne and District U10 Girls v Charnock Girls U10
Saturday 4th December 2021
Bare bones and brilliance for the U10’s today, as we returned to the league against Dearne and District after successfully qualifying for the knockout stages of the cup competition.
With illness striking down a number of players, plus the morning being cold and the rain looking like it wasn’t going to let up, all culminated in a few worries about the outcome and performance of this fixture. But the girls, in their many layers under their kits, were up for the challenge.
Daisy was not looking to mess around, and started on her attacking game literally straight from the kick off. Dearne then opened up and the game was dogged with most of the possession in the middle third of the pitch.
Our midfield were always in control and our defence ready to step up when needed. Izzy and Beau did their job admirably in the back line and kept the Dearne attack at bay. Beau almost getting on the score sheet, but unfortunately, smashed the ball against the post after an amazing run.
Unbelievable midfield display from Esme and Olivia today. Both being ill in the week, they battled throughout and showed no signs of having just recovered from illness. Very impressed with a relentless display from both.
Charlotte and Lilja have really stepped up their level and range of passing. The pair, both showing promising attacking talent. Our best play of the game was when Olivia played Daisy in on the wide right, and as three Dearne defenders closed her down, she slotted the ball through to our waiting attacker for an easy tap in…..a beautiful team goal. Daisy also kept her shooting boots nice and toasty warm, as she was once again devastating in front of goal.
With a bare seven, the girls showed amazing character in rubbish conditions to complete a dominant performance. Class once again.
