November 19th 2023.U11 Girls just fall short against Liverpool.

This National Cup tie was a well fought game for long periods and with the girls really working hard against a very good Liverpool side the score was still tied at 1-1 with almost an hour played. Indeed Avani Hayer had given us the lead and we would have made it 2-0 if it were not for a fantastic save from the visiting keeper and this proved to be the real turning point in the match. Once Liverpool had equalised they grew in confidence and when we had gone behind we were very much up against it as tired legs came into the equation in the final 20 minutes. The 4-1 scoreline was perhaps a little harsh and our girls should be very proud of their effort and performance. We probably deserved better but to be fair our goalkeeper,Bella Wooley, made about ten fantastic saves, and it it were not for her displaying real class between the sticks the margin of defeat could have been even greater. Looking forward to the next game in the 9-a-side cup at Bodymoor Heath on the 24th of November!
