Clevedon United Under-10 Girls were hosted by Emerson’s Green and were narrowly beaten.

The visitors were the livelier and more threatening in the early exchanges and any chances that Emerson created were well saved by Macey in goal.

Clevedon have recruited several new players. Shae and Megan are starting to build more confidence and understanding of the game and up front Ruby had her best game to date.
