Danone cup West Leicester Champions
On Thursday 12th October, our girls’ football team managed a hard fought 1-0 victory over an impressive well organised Catherine team.
We opened the scoring early on with an impressive low drive coming from Abi Whitehouse. From then on, our backs were against the wall with Catherine throwing everything at us but the spine of the team stayed solid with Erin making some key tackles keeping their strikers at bay.
Yasmin Ahmed captained the side and showed strong leadership skills with plenty of encouragement for the team, her composure on the ball in midfield even led to the referee at full time picking her out for a special mention.
Catherine’s best chance of the game came from a mistake by goalkeeper Hannah Webb but she more than made up for it by making a stunning top corner save after passing the ball to their striker.
Overall a solid and impressive performance led to the team getting their reward being crowned Danone cup West Leicester Champions. WELL DONE GIRLS!
