4 Wins, 1 Draw and 1 Loss, with 21 goals scored and 12 conceded from 6 matches played.

A few performances which are deserving of a special mention:

U12 Div 1 Girls

The girls played their best game of the season so far and have really started to show a strong team structure. The support play around the ball was excellent and we finally got some results up the front from both Kate Hunter and Eloise Wallach finding the net. Special mention goes to our superb goalies Lucy McGhee and Willow Searles who had an excellent game and a very special mention to Arcadia Battley who was having her best game of the season and got tackled off the ball and injured so had to head to hospital. Poor Arkie has a fractured elbow and we all wish her a speedy recovery as we can’t wait to have her back on the field!

Chloe GU13 Div 2 Girls

Meet Chloe G from our U13 Div 2 Team. In a nail-biting 4-3 win over Teviot Downs, Chloe scored a magnificent hat trick. Well done to Chloe and the entire team. We hope Jayne let you keep the ball!

U16 Div 1 Girls

Finally, our U16 Girls were able to play their first official match of the season – in August! And what a great way to start, with a thumping 4-0 away win at Moggill FC. It was the smallest player on the field, Zara K, who after being pushed into playing right wing, scored the team’s first goal of the season with a shot/cross that sailed over the keeper's head into the net. The excitement from all the team over that first goal was fantastic to see. A goal from Sienna Q followed by two from Gen B, as well as a commanding display in the centre of defence from Annabella S ensured that it was a great afternoon for the U16s.
