This was the U10/11’s first fixture of the season against Quinton House and what a great fixture it was!
The game started promptly with The Grove winning the first push back. Throughout the first half, we were very much dominating play, demonstrating some fantastic attacking play which continued throughout the whole game.
Jana Alsallal managed to keep a clean sheet, making some very important clearances. This was helped by a fantastic defence, with Chloe Cave, Sophy Pearce and Eve Bailey strong in all of their tackles.
In midfield and on the wing, Maya Shah, Gabriella English, Iman Komane and Carolina Diniz Fernandez-Lomana demonstrated superb vision distributing the ball beautifully down both of the channels. And in attack, Amaya Saiz-Arthur showed great commitment and hunger for the ball, scoring a total of three goals!
Overall, it was a fantastic game with both excellent individual and team performances all around. Well done!
