A very tight game today which could have gone either way. Unfortunately, it wasn't our day and our unbeaten start to the season came to an end.
A bit of a late mix up in defence led to us conceding the only goal of the game in the second half, but there were plenty of positives today, especially in the way we applied ourselves - and in particular the newer players showing signs of understanding what’s required in terms of work rate.
Individually however, Steph was immense at centre half, having to come off with cramp in the closing stages of the game, and Jane tireless in midfield, breaking down any periods of Kempston keep-ball.
However, only 5 games in to the season, and injuries are already concerning. Lucy and Kel are out long term, and further injuries today for Janine and Rosie didn’t help the cause - but with each game we will gain more understanding and confidence (even with players playing out of position through necessity!)
