After a difficult introduction to competitive football for our Under 12s last week, our courageous bunch of girls were back in action today for their 2nd matchup. On their travels for the first time in the season, they popped down to Tongwynlais to face Fairwater Juniors.
Every girl did themselves, their parents, coaches and the club proud today. The team was hardly recognisable from last week, and a cracking start to the match could have seen Caerphilly three to the good within the first 5 minutes.
The team battled hard throughout the match, and put on a great display despite being down to the bare bones number of players wise.
The extra players and substitutions Fairwaters Juniors were able to call on being the main difference to the performances of the teams. The home side coming away with a 6-3 victory.
With a little bit of hard work – both on the pitch (and off it in terms of player recruitment), we look to have a basis of a very solid looking squad in our midst, and we’re looking forward to seeing how the side develops in future weeks.
