On Sunday the ladies played host to Redditch ladies.  We played Redditch in a pre-season friendly that ended 2 v 2 so we knew it was going to be a good challenge.  In recent weeks the Star-ladies have allowed teams to come onto us and we have often found ourselves chasing the game early on; this is something we have been working on and going into the game we knew we couldn’t let this happen.

From the whistle we took the game to them, working as a unit, and working hard for each other we controlled the game.  Half time came and it was still 0 v 0.  Extremely frustrating considering that we created so many opportunities, but failed to convert them.  For 70 minutes we pinned Redditch in their own half, although we were not playing our usual pass and move game.  We were comfortable, and perhaps a little too comfortable, creating opportunities at will.  However, we were to pay dearly for not taking our chances, as Redditch scored from set piece, followed by another shortly afterwards.  This saw us 2-0 down at the final whistle.

A big thank you to those Continental staff (Deno; Daniel Moses & Mista Too Blessed) who were there giving their support.
