U11 Girls Football – Danone Cup
Our first football outing of the new season for our U11 girls team took place on Wednesday with Dover Park and Nettlestone the visitors to compete for a place in the IW finals of the national Danone Cup competition.
Our girls put on a battling display in both games but were unable to progress on this occasion.
We found ourselves 3-0 down at half time to Dover Park. But the girls put on an amazing display in the second half to claw back 2 goals, both scored by Isla. However with Greenmount very much in the ascendancy time ran out and the final score remained at 2-3.
In the second game against Nettlestone the girls were again in battling spirit, but Nettlestone were a strong side and created some chances but were kept out by a string of great saves from Florence. Nettlestone did manage to score 3 goals to win 0-3.
“A great battling team performance with lots of positives and a few things to work on before the schools league and cup games begin. Well done girls”
