Girls Football Ashingdon V Plumberow
Today, Plumberow Academy visited Ashingdon Academy to play a Girls' League football match.
Ashingdon are a new team, and, as in all their sport at the moment, they are trying to find their feet.
Plumberow started the game well and quickly scored. This settled Ashingdon down a little, and some nice defending kept Plumberow at bay. Eventually though, Plumberow got through to score the 2nd, and went in at half time 0 v 5 up.
In the second half, Ashingdon quickly scored with a fine effort through the keeper's legs. Plumberow steadied the ship and ended up 1 v 10 winners.
A fine display by both schools. Ashingdon, to their credit, never gave up, which bodes well for the future. Plumberow on this occasion were too strong, but I believe Ashingdon’s sport is improving, and, with the right attitude and same never-give-up mentality that they showed today, the only way is forward.
