Great first friendly match
By Russ Gibbs
New local rivals come together for the first time
At the invitation of Radcliffe Olympic our newest girls team travelled to South Notts Academy for a friendly game on the 3G, ahead of both teams joining the league at the beginning of November.
Nine of our ten eligible players were available and it was a good first run out for the girls. Clearly a number of the Bingham girls have been training a little longer than their Radcliffe counterparts, and that showed in terms of possession and confidence on the ball. Bingham scored a few goals as coach Neil rotated players at regular intervals, and Radcliffe got one for themselves too.
Most importantly all the players looked very happy to be there and enjoyed themselves. Good luck to both sets of girls as they set off on their footballing journeys, and hopefully there will be plenty more local derbies between the two sides in the years to come.
