So today we had another impromptu junior training session before our senior game – great to be able to do some focused work In a small group.
The main event was always going to be a tough affair against Trojans 2 and there was added spice as both teams had former Croydon team mates in opposition.
We were delighted to have our two new signings on the pitch. we got off to an amazing start taking a 3-0 lead within 5 minutes but Trojans pulled that back. Both teams were 100% committed and no quarter was asked nor given. first have saw Trojans pull ahead by two and held that going into the break. Second half was no less full on. fair play to the Supernova ref who kept his cool throughout and did a decent job. Trojans made some tactical changes which was a credit to our u15 female players. they took a five goal lead at with about 5 minutes to go, it seemed to be slipping away from us but we a tough unit full of self belief who pulled 3 goals back but ran out of time. It finished 19-21 to Trojans. a very good game from our perspective and our players can feel proud of their performance especially our new signings who were outstanding.
