Whilst I would like to thank all the players for their efforts this season, it would only be fair to recognise a special vote of thanks and congratulations for 3 players – Sebastian, Rodolfe and Francisco B – the captain, vice-captain and goal keeper respectively, who each played pivotal roles in the team and displayed exceptional skill, tenacity, resilience and acted as great role models for the rest of our young squad – well done!!
Here is a summary of the indoor results and final classification:
The “official” indoor matches have now finished for us, however we will continue to train on Thursday’s at Alvide (7-8.15pm) as well as train “outdoor” at the Estadio Nacional on Saturday mornings (9.30-11.00am) and Mondays at SDR (7-8pm) – in addition, there is also an excellent and fun opportunity to come and play in the “peladinha” at the EN each Wednesday (7.30-8.30pm). We will also be organising friendly “outdoor” matches so please keep an eye open!
If we wish to be serious about making further progress, and improving on this seasons excellent start, then it is essential that all players attend at least two of the above sessions each week – as always, progress is only made by lots of “small steps and hard work” – Mums & Dads your continuing support is, as always, key to helping us achieve this!!!
Final U15 indoor game against CFB U15, Sunday 14 January
At the beginning of the season we lost 0-11 to CFB. On the return match it was again clearly evident the team has evolved significantly over the season with a much improved result of 0-7 against a team that finished joint winners of the league (we have finished 5th out of 6).
The team took a while to adapt to a totally different game from the day before against CP ladies – this time there was instant and sustained pressure throughout the game (who had two very large players who will not be playing U15 next year!) with significant improvement in the second half when only one goal was scored (and we were unfairly denied a penalty!).
