Under 11 Girls County Tournament

Magpies U11 girls took part in the County Championships with 7 other teams on Sunday. The girls finished with 12 points from their 7 matches – the same as Norwich City.

Above these 2 club sides were Greshams in 1st place (maximum points) and Town Close School in 2nd place.
Magpies gave Greshams their closest match of the tournament with Anna Berry in goal having an excellent game. Greshams had 2 superb players (who combined to score a couple of quality goals) but our girls played with skill and team work throughout.

Magpies also drew 1-1 with Town Close thanks to a super short corner by the outstanding Beatrice Flatt. Her tackling and distribution throughout the tournament was excellent.

Emily McCluskey also had a good tournament working tirelessly in midfield. Kara Kilbourn also had a good tournament which included a hat trick against Dereham. Sophie Long also scored against Dereham and Watton.

Krystal Jenkins and Katie Crawford played well in defence and continue to improve with each tournament.
The only disappointment on the day was a loss to Norwich City with the last touch of the match after a failure to convert vastly superior territory & possession (for Magpies) into goals at the other end.
