This week our u18 girls played host to Flitwick u18's, at our new home 'Kings Field', The girls were the first team to play at our new facility, and there was great excitement amongst the girls and parents to finally have somewhere we can call home. Unfortunately for Flitwick they arrived with only 9 players available, so we agreed to play 9v9 which gave us 3 subs that allowed us to keep rotating the players. The game started and it quickly became apparent that our girls adjusted to using the space on the pitch, as within the first 12 minutes we were 3 goals in front, with the added advantage of having 3 subs rotating compared to Flitwick who didn't have this luxury we were in full control of game and scored a further 2 goals in the first half hour of the game, Flitwick's best chance of the first half came when their forward raced on to a through ball, only to see her effort well saved by Ellie, the first half ended with us scoring a further 4 goals.
The second half was pretty much the same as the first half with Flitwick occasionally breaking forward without much success, and us playing some good football and scoring a further 7 goals. Despite the game being quite one sided I feel credit should go to both sets of players, firstly to Kempston for being respectful and playing football the right way despite the score line, and secondly to Flitwick who again despite the score line never gave up and kept giving 100% effort for each other, their coach and their parents.
