Match report NMJFC U11 Girls vs Cheadle & Gatley - 06/01/24

From the off the girls looked like they were ready for business, even after a Christmas break with too much chocolate and not much sleep. The new 12.40 kick off helped somewhat.

The game started with New Mills dominating the pitch, passing and pushing the ball in to Cheadle’s half. It certainly didn’t look like we had just come from a break. Millie had little to do in goal for the first 15mins of the game with the defence of Florence and Emily eager to get the ball sent forward to Isla and onto Elsie.

Slowly Cheadle managed to find a way into the game with a few attacks of their own. The girls battled on, with a poorly Brooke who gave it her all whilst battling a terrible cough.

A few changes were made and with little left of the 1st half a great pass came from Elsie directly to the foot of Isla who found the goal perfectly.⚽️👌

The second half started with the same vigour as the first with Lilly making some great forward passes to Elsie and Emily resulting in a few more attempts. Tallulah was showing what she was made of in midfield with some great tackles preventing Cheadle from breaking through.

New Mills began to tire and had to rely on some great challenges from Erin against Cheadle’s striker. The enabled the girls to push the ball forward and onto Elsie who managed to keep composure and score the Millers 2nd goal of the game⚽️

The standard of football the girls played today showed how much they have come on as team.

The effort of all the girls today made it a difficult decision for awarding player of the game but after a little discussion we were all in agreement that it went to Isla 🏆for the constant effort and bagging a great goal⚽️

Well done girls 💪💪💪
