This weekends fixtures at GMFC were much improved this weekend with both our Ladies team and our under 15’s recording very good wins in what were tricky games against tough opposition.
Our Ladies won 2-0 against a tough tackling and physical Old Actonians team. This would have been a good result on its own, however it was not as simple as that as we ended up with only 9 women on the pitch for majority of the game due to Injuries and a sending off the girls soldiered through the game and scored 2 cracking goals plus kept an even more impressive clean sheet. Well Done girls
Our Under 15’s had a great turn around of result with an emphatic 7-2 home win against Peckham Town in what was a very aggressive and heated match. The boys showed great restraint and discipline in both the way they played on the pitch and controlling their own behaviour which takes a lot of maturity at such a young age.
In our other games over the weekend the results did not go our way with the Under 16’s losing in a tightly contested game 3-5 to London Dragons. The boys were very unlucky to not get at least a draw out of the game as they went into half time 2 goals up. Unfortunately the other team had a lot larger squad and used this to their advantage in the second half in order to save their energy.
In the final fixture of the weekend Our GMFC Cobham boys lost in another close game away at Raynes Park Vale in the Cup. Unfortunately this game marked the end of our run in this cup with the boys losing to 2 cheap goals in a game that can at best be described as dull.
Overall though not a bad weekend at GMFC and lots of continual progression on show from all teams!
