Final game of preseason with a midweek match, down to 8 before the match. The starting 7 picked itself with new girl Lily starting on the bench. Sadie between the sticks, Orla and Emily at the back, Soph on the left, Lucy on the right, Hattie down the middle with Isabelle leading the line. The game started well and a few early chances fell for the Emeralds but unfortunately none were converted. Isabelle got the first, followed by Lucy with the 2nd. Half time change around, Isabelle moved into defence, Orla into midfield and Hattie up top. Hattie started the 2nd half with a bang and got her first goal. Defensive confusion meant that our first clean sheet alludes us and we have to wait a little longer. Good game though, I’d like to say both sets of girls benefited from it. Onwards and upwards Emeralds.
