06/02 Ashington Cougars U12 Girls – Gatwick United FC U12 Girls

Ashington Cougars U12 Girls – Gatwick United FC U12 Girls, this game was our hardest pill to swallow so far this year!

Firstly I’d like to say a big shout out to the 9 girls that played the whole game from start to finish, in gusty winds and with 110% commitment. Due to illness, injury and covid we managed to get a team together and wow did they play well against a side that had 3 substitutes.

Owing to 2 questionable on-field decisions, 1 for offside and 1 a penalty, we found ourselves trailing 1-0 at HT having played the much better football.

The same story for second half saw us accumulate over double the amount of shots on target than our counterparts, but that little bit of luck was just not on our side. Conditions took there toll and we ended with a 3-0 defeat but still battled and showed heart right until the very end! Belief and Confidence are our buzz words for this week.

Well played girls, we are all so proud of you!
