So our first time to host has come around. In view of Caerphilly Castle we welcomed teams from Treowen, Aberdare, Llantwit Major, Barry and Hopkinstown. Matches were split over 3 pitches.
First up we played our friends from Treowen and with both sides playing well, ending in a draw, with a first goal from Kyah and then an OG. Treowen came back into it and got two goals, earning the draw.
Secondly we played Llantwit Major and in a tight game, we managed to get a second half goal from Catrina.
After a break, we played Barry, and after a good performance from the girls, with plenty of chances, only kept out by impressive work by the Barry goalkeeper, the opposition managed to score after some defensive mishaps.
Lastly we faced Aberdare, which was an evenly matched game between the sides. Aberdare managed to get a goal and although we kept going to the end, the girls couldn’t score a goal our performance probably deserved. In the end, tiredness probably told.
Overall, a great morning of football, enjoyed by all. The girls worked incredibly hard and worked well together.
Our 7’s worked really hard today with games against Hopkinstown and Llanbradach Blue. Both teams played really well. Goals from Alys, Grace, Olivia. and Naimh. Supported by some Excellent defending from Olivia and Hope.
Good game against Llantwit Major but even though we worked really hard we were beatedn. Against Llanbradach Yellow, who were a very strong an close game just proving s step too far.
Everyone appeared to be having fun and the weather stayed dry.
Thanks to all our supporters you really do make a difference.
