Girls United London vs Athenlay FC
The U12s made up of no less than 12 girls came together for their first match representing Girls United! The game kicked-off on a beautiful, sunny day. With face paint and great attitudes, the team battled for the whole match in spite of an early goal against. All of the players played some incredible football, getting out of their comfort zones in new positions and, most importantly, working together to the very end.
The match ended a 4-1 loss with our goal, a long-range screamer from Sylvia. Though the scoreboard wasn’t in our favour, the girls deserve a great round of applause for their performance. They had us on the edge of our seats, so much so that everyone forgot to take photos!
A special shout-out to the Girls United fans (parents and siblings) who never stopped cheering and putting all their support behind the players! I am sure we can expect to see the community just get better as the team progresses.
We are so excited for a rematch and for many more matches to come!
