Their coach says the girls “portrayed true team spirit” when each team member had a go in goal.

A spokesman said: “They played exceptionally well, unfortunately due to lack of experience and players they lost their first league game.”

The U14s boys also played their first 11-aside game in the Rover Colts League against the Swavesey Spartans Football Club.

The spokesman added: “The boys dominated the game with four goals from our captain, three from our striker and one from our holding midfielder.

“The final score was 8-2, winning their first home game.”

The U12s yellows played away against Chatteris Town, their coach says the boys “dominated the game”.

The spokesman added: “The boys dominated the game keeping a clean sheet and wining by 4-0.

“Chatteris put up a brave fight and continued to press however were held back by our dedicated defenders.”

The U11 girls’ team are holding trials, if anyone is interested in joining you should contact: Gaynor Fisher on 07825 599172.
