Seven very excited girls arrived at Mackadown Lane in glorious sunshine for their first ever game as a new team.
Both sides got stuck in straight away, with both teams very evenly matched.
We started with Esme, Ellen, Bethany, Sienna Rose and Grace in goal. For the first 10 minutes they played hard and had loads of fun. Esme was very impressive pushing forward hard and passing well, Ellen supported Esme well up front pushing and passing well.
Grace saved a few good goals with Sienna-Rose and Bethany defending well. Bethany kept pushing forward and assisting the girls up front and the girls defended and attacked really well.
