Match Report NMJFC U12 Girls Vs Buxton - 27/04/24

Chasing straight from the off today against the Buxton side ending in a disappointing result but plenty of positives too. 

A very defensive game kept our back line busy with quality direction and communication from Izzy who got stuck in and tracked back, supporting & covering her defending team mates superbly. 

Lily was marked heavily by a physically strong player, covering some distance and winning the battle time and again, good self confidence. 

A well structured Buxton side eager to win it back every time left the New Mills side trying to get the ball out from their feet and forwards. 

Frustration and slight panic set in where we'd have ideally regained possession and passed the ball like we know they can, still couple of good shots on target, good throw in decisions too. 

A speedy counter attack from the opposition ground us down.  Great work Jaz tracking back & strong in the tackles, not letting your marker play.  The highlights of today's game for us as coaches was the work ethic from Alissa, great 1v1s, good pressing, held your position well throughout and impressed again. 

Top of our diamond, Nieve who dominated the middle third superbly, game face was on today and showed maturity and understanding of the game to switch her usual attacking mid position to defend and have more impact on the game, great decision Nieve! 

Player of the match today went to 4 players, each deserving in their own right and role within the team: Lily, Izzy, Nieve and Alissa. 

Reset, re-focus and be ready for training on Tuesday.  Keep working hard for each other team!
