Solid performance as the season finally gets going

Firstly an apology: the official result was a 24-3 win to Timperley, but the real result was 25-2. It's my fault for not checking with the umpires every quarter. :-(

Well done to all of the team for an excellent performance and thanks to those that are also playing at Lancs training today - I hope you're not too tired - quite rightly the club team has to come first before, or at very least alongside, county.

Secondly, a word about the defence: it's easy to focus on the attack, especially as we don't collect all of the defensive stats, but we have now played two games against what I expect to be mid-table teams and only conceded 5 goals. That's mightily impressive, so well done to today's defence of Eliza, Elsa, Karina and Charlotte. The latter 3 were also part of the defence in the last match against Cheadle so they are a formidable defensive unit.

As for attack, the girls played with pace, passing crisply and mostly picking the right opportunities to go for goal, which shows real maturity. They also introduced some variety into the attacking play later in the game. The Mellor goalkeeper played superbly and made countless saves, so 25 goals in that context tells you everything you need to know. Goals and assists as follows:
Alice - 5/4
Sophie - 4/2
Jazzy - 6/2
Henny - 5/6
Ana - 2/9 - queen of assists today!
Jess - 2/1
Lotta - 1/0

Hopefully we can now generate some momentum as we head into the next 2 games - Heaton Mersey on 28th Nov and Oxton on 12th December. Please try to make sure as many of you as possible are free to play.
