U11 Girls Norfolk Championships 2008

Magpies U11 Girls

Magpies took their under 11s girls to Taverham on Sunday to participate in the Norfolk Championship Tournament. Having won an earlier tournament at Taverham in January Magpies knew that this would be a much tougher test.

Our first game against Old Buckenham resulted in a comfortable 3-0 win.
Magpies second game against Greshams proved to be a very intense and hard fought encounter with neither team able to score 0-0.

Further wins against Watton 4-0, Norwich City 3-0, Taverham Hall 2-0 and Dereham 2-0 meant that Magpies had put themselves in with a chance of first place.

Against a strong Town Close team Magpies conceded early but fought back well to gain a well deserved draw 1-1.

Our final game against Pelicans resulted in a 1-0 win, however with Greshams only dropping two points (0-0 draw with Magpies) throughout the tournament Magpies had to settle for a very creditable second place.

Strong performances from capt Emma Owen (5), Georgia Scott (9), Georgia Pearson (1), Kira Wooltorton (1) ably supported by GK Madeleine Eglington, Laura Davidson, Catherine Kilbourn and Kara Kilbourn enabled Magpies to score 16 goals and only concede 1
