Leigh Genesis U9 Asteroid Girls Cruised into the semi final of the BBDFL League cup on Sunday with a 4-0 Victory over Pennington Girls. Goals from Frankie-1 Abbie-2 Maggie-1 saw the Asteroids home. Girl of the match went to Abigail for her superb performance. Coming up against a strong outfit in Pennington, the girls had to be up for the test ahead!
We caught up with team manager David Hunt after the game to get his thoughts on a memorable day for the girls.
"Me and Roy are so proud of every player after this mornings quarter final cup game against a decent Pennington diamonds team! 4-0 to us gives you only the final score? But the things that always impress me are,
1. Work rate
3. Control of the ball with passing
4. Never giving up on wining the ball back
And I’m seeing communication, shape and structure and most of all an enjoyment in the way you are playing!
So proud! So chuffed. Well done abbygale on your girl of the match award. Every single player put a shift in ! And that’s why we move on to the semi finals"
What a day to remember for the girls but all focus must now be on the semi final!
They call the Coach David the Claudio Ranieri lookalike but can he and the girls pull off a miracle like the one of Leicester city and win the cup?
