St Nick's girls find their feet as season progresses

ST NICK’S Under-10 Girls have got off to a slow but steady start to the season.

With matches every couple of weeks, they’ve had to play a few friendly matches to keep up with fitness and development.

Although they don’t have a natural goalkeeper, the girls who have stepped in goal have all worked hard to keep a clean sheet, which resulted in carrying out some brilliant saves.

The three natural defenders have grown in confidence, technical ability and even showed off a few skills along the way.

As many teams do, the team has six girls who love to play in midfield. Their one and only striker is on a goal scoring mission and is already in double figures this season.

St Nicholas Girls Development Squad are a group of five to nine year olds, which started in 2013 with very few girls and matches.

As female football is growing, so is the development squad. The squad consists of 20 girls, with the U9s/U8s playing in matches on a weekend.

The development squad have scored more than 80 goals this season in just 10 matches. The U9s & U8s have friendly matches up until May, to develop their confidence and ability, with a few striving to be selected for trials.

The club also has players who are seven and below. These girls work on having fun and completing individual challenges.

Anyone with a daughter would like to play football and is in year 4 or below at school should contact the club via the St Nicholas Football Club Facebook page.
