The girls pushed on in the heat with a positive attitude and had such a great team culture on and off the feild. Was awesome to watch and can’t wait to play the rest of the season! What an awesome start to their season! The team worked very well together in the hot sun for both halves and got a great result!
NEXT GAME: Our girls next game is May 1st at home, div 1 at home against Unicol.
The Cambridge Football Club Statesmen Over 35's: FT 7-1 loss.
So pre march there was a bit of a reshuffle and we had looked for some help to cover. We’d played well last week and were looking to kick on. Call it coaches instincts but I thought we would make some mistakes and would grow this week. We were confident that we have a spirit every side should be jealous of, and we are ready to fight for every ball and never give up until the final whistle. A game of two halves for sure and when you concede 7 and the goal keeper gets a shout for MoM, then it has been a challenge. We fear no challenge. The Statesmen spirit pushed the boys to their limits as men fell to injuries in the second half and finished with 9 pairs of usable legs. Teams show what they are made of by how they respond. Our next opponents should watch out.
