Frosty Saturday mornings in November did nothing to hamper the enthusiasm of the SJ U9 girls in their two fixtures against Hillingdon Abbotts U9 on 16th November and Actonians U9 on 30th November – both team notorious for leading the league with big goal differences in every game.
16th November – Hillingdon Abbotts U9
A tough game for the girls with lots of goals and pressure applied by the opposition. Great goals from Zahra G (x2), Isha, Saamiya and Sumayyah coupled with some incredible saves from Ayaana to keep us in the game. 
SJ was unfortunate to have lost this game having been 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes. Great learning and even greater fun with the parents getting involved and cheering both sides non stop.
 
Final score 7-5 to Hillingdon
 
30th November – Actonians U9
 
The girls were switched on and attacking from the whistle. Amazing saves in goal from Zahra J and Nabeelah kept the Actonian score line at bay.
 
Wingers Isha and Sumayya gave the team the breadth and pushed the ball up with Zahra G and Sakina holding the middle nice and tight and pressuring up the centre of the pitch. Saamiya was a wall at the back clearing all the attacking balls.
 
Zahra G with her hat trick scoring 3 super goals gave the team a boost and her team mates defended that score like warriors!
All the girls were in top form today and we were unlucky to lose by 1 goal.
 
Final score 3-4 to Actonians U9.
 
The scores and results show the consistency the girls have retained and they have been unlucky not to come away with the wins. Having only been playing football for 2 months, it is amazing to see what the girls have already achieved and shows the talent that we have!
As we end the first half of the season today; a huge thank you to the mums and dads for dedicatedly bringing the girls on these cold Saturday mornings and working with them at home. Your dedication is second to none and the fruits of it are starting to show.
