Clevedon United Under-9 Girls overcame a stern test against Whitchurch, running out comfortable winners.

Clevedon United Under-9 Girls came up against a strong Whitchurch outfit who were physical and played with real pace.

This was the perfect test for the Clevedon girls and they showed how good a footballing side they were, creating numerous chances. The Whitchurch goalie was in superb form and kept Clevedon at bay for long periods.

Clevedon did break through with two goals from Cassidy before half time.

In the second half, Whitchurch fought harder and pulled a goal back, but this was followed by a great team goal involving four players, culminating with a lovely ball by Malika, leaving Evie C with an open goal.

The defence of Tabitha, Erin, Maisie and Flo worked tirelessly. Hope in goal made a number of great saves and there were nearly first goals for Malika and Evie G, who both had excellent games.

Ruby, Evie H, Nina and Cassidy continued to work hard and all girls came off the pitch beaming with smiles. Girl of the match chosen by the opposition was Cassidy.

Clevedon United Junior Football Club’s inclusive squad showed their respect for all the people who gave their lives during both wars by having a minute’s applause at the start of training on Remembrance Sunday.
