It was half-term weekend and our side was whittled down to from 16 to 12 with 5 players calling in sick. Captain Becky for the 6s very kindly dropped herself to help us out (which meant she could only bench for her team for 30 minutes).
The game started well for us with Tilly setting up a shot in a short corner which Claire, on the left post popped into the goal. They fought back and got two goals in before half time.
Reviewing the game at half time, everyone chipped in with suggestions and we started the second half positively. Unfortunately, we were unable to capitalise on these good intentions. Aylesbury scored another goal before the end of the match. So, we finished 1-3.
Special mention needs to go to Amelia who had a cracking game in goal and Rachel, playing centre mid (she normally plays inner), who ran her socks off. Player of the match, however, went to Tilly who played outstandingly in her first match for Hawks Ladies.
