Boom and bust at Manor

Newport girls played a double header against Grange and Manor this evening.
The girls were clealry rusty in their first game against an unexperienced Grange team despite being refereed brilliantly by a referee who let the game flow........
They eventually managed to score in the second half after a number of scuffed shots and fluffed chances. Despite a lot of huffing and puffing they couldn't add to the single goal to finish as 1-0 victors.

The game against Manor was a much more thrilling affair with an exploding football !
The girls were much more determined against Manor but allowed Manor to take the lead with the softest goal imaginable. As Rachel got stuck in alongside Meila in midfield, they created a few chances and managed to scramble a goal just before half time only for it to be disallowed for an earlier foul on the goalie. A great shame.
However the girls were undeterred and in the second half pushed forward against a tired Manor team. Shannon D had a great shot saved. Despite their best efforts, the girls couldn't snatch an equaliser and lost 0-1.
Our unanimous "man of the match" award went to Emily who had never ever played for the team before! Well done Emily you were absolutely brilliant!
