Under 12 Lions Awards

Here are the 2019/20 season awards for the Under 12 Lions.

Players Player Kate Beazley
Coaches Player Emily Brown-George Amazingly our fantastic goalie Emily hardly missed a game and had an amazing season.   Never flinching in the face of attack Emily saved many a goal and many a game for the team.  In one match her jumping and diving saves were so incredible they were almost comical, although the opposition didn’t see it that way.  A big thanks from the coaches
Most Improved Player Rose Daser Coming into the Lions for the first time this season Rose has gone from strength to strength and been instrumental in many of our wins.

Season Summary: A great season full of lots of fun, lots of goals, lots of victories, lots of character and quite a bit of hard work.  We ended the unfinished league second in the table.

In a funny way the highlight of the season was our 3 defeats on the trot to the same team.  We were running second in the league and a quirk in the fixture schedule led us to meet the top team (AFC Reading) three weekends in a row; two cup competitions and our first game against them in the league.  At no point were the team demoralised, each game was approached with new vigour and despite very nearly holding the last game to a draw they took their final loss with good grace and appreciated that the three fixtures had considerably raised their game.  That said, it was on the back of many wins – which does help a lot!
