Gatten and Lake 1 – 0 Newchurch
A huge congratulations to the Girls U-11 Football team, who played their final game of the campaign this evening, beating Newchurch 1-0 to lift the ‘Charlotte Giles Cup’ for the first time in Gatten and Lake history. The girls team have played amazingly well throughout the autumn and spring term, losing only once in all the games they have played in league and cup.
This evening was a tough test against a very formidable Newchurch team. The game started well with Emily Legg latching onto a loose ball in the Newchurch area and scoring the only goal of the game. The girls did really well to hold on to the 1-0 lead, with Newchurch coming close on a number of occassions, only to be denied by some brilliant defending and goal keeping from Gatten and Lake. The final few minutes were nail-biting with Newchurch piling on the pressure, but Gatten and Lake held on and walked away eventual Cup Winners for 2018. A brilliant end to a brilliant season for the girls team.
Team: Willow Samuel, Kirsty Turrell, Jessica Cooper, Madison Collins, Caitlin Dologhan, Evie Thomas, Ellie-Marie Brown, Sharnay Cook, Abi Smith and Emily Legg.
