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.
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.
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.
