Saturday 19th Novemeber is the day ten, 8 year old girls will remember for many years, it was their 1st cup game, in thier 1st season playing, against a much older and bigger team, the Pumas, having lost every game so far in the season were up against it, yet improving. The 1st half was a delight to watch the younger pumas took the game to the panthers coming in at half time 1 goal ahead through a fine finish from Chloe Birch. The Pumas went close several times in the 2nd half to double their lead, yet couldnt find the net, then the inevitable happend a last minute equaliser from the panthers forcing the game to extra time.

An inspired team talk, big gulp of the girls favourite squash spurred then into action and Chloe Birch did the business again in the 1st half of extra time another excellent goal giving the Pumas a 2-1 lead with 5 minutes to play. The girls battled with grit and determination, not only to secure their 1st win as footballers, but put themselves in the cup final in their 1st season of playing the game.

A truly amazing game, and result, the sidelines littered with a very proud set of parents and grand parents, lead by a very proud manager and coach. In fact this result made everyones weekend. Brilliant result, every team member played like a hero from start to finish, a well deserved victory and will be the 1st of many from this up and coming very young yet eager under 10’s team.
