Our U18 girls came out on top in a very difficult local derby versus a very capable FC Clacton today. In biting cold wind and on a pitch that was pretty firm in places, they were 0-1 down at half time. They held fast, played with discipline, looked for and waited for the opportunities to come and 2 superbly executed opportunities gave us the lead which was held onto for the final 10 minutes. The F.C. Clacton GK had a superb game to keep us out, we rode our luck in the 1st half with our own GK and the woodwork limiting FC Clacton to just the one goal.
This completes our league season & leaves these these young ladies (7 of them could still be playing U16 football) on top of the Essex league U18B division. They can be caught by Hutton (Brentwood) but cannot be overtaken, so a share of and possible play off for the league title looms, we wait for the results of Huttons final 2 away games.
Great, great, magnificent season, superb bunch of girls for David & Wayne to coach, we are both, all, so so proud of you all!
Thanks to everyone for your continued support.
