The first week in December and it was the official start of the Women’s Indoor District League. GCW had both our 2s and 3s out on Saturday.
First up was the girls 3s who featured newcomers Eve Sheal, Sarah Anderson and Heather Curry plus the return of “experienced” kicking back Janet Graham. The new look side took a while to settle but two minutes from half time they got the goal that put them ahead going into the break. A little comforting chat and a slight change in style and the second half proved a better return for their efforts. The final score was 6-1 and the sixth was a picture of beauty passed amongst all the players from back to front before a simple tap in.
Two hours later and the first of two matches for GCW 2s took place. It was a little strange as the opposition was the North U18 side of which most were GCW players. The GCW side however may have been light on youngsters but heavy on experience. This somewhat unusual “derby” game went 4-0 to the GCW 2s to prove never to under estimate the value of experience.
The GCW2s second game was against Grammar 1s which is always a tight affair. This game was no different but the result went the way of the GCW 2s. Goals from Emily Watson and a fine flick from a corner by Shiona Brough were enough to settle the game 2-1. A nervy finish but the GCW girls held out for a deserved victory and a promising start to the new season.
Sunday saw the U14s mixed indoor take place at Cults Academy. GCW had 4 sides involved (26 players in total) against sides from Gordonans, Quasar and South Aberdeenshire. A very successful morning with lots of wins and several new face making their indoor debuts. Thanks to Jen Tait for helping with the coaching in the morning and stealing a game or two as well.
