Sylks Un­der 11s back with win­ning

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -


THE U11 Sylks MTLFC were back in ac­tion this week­end af­ter an ex­tended break, their op­po­nents Con­gle­ton Vale Ju­niors and Ap­ple­ton.

There was plenty to shout about for this young team, with all the girls grow­ing in skill and con­fi­dence since the be­gin­ning of the sea­son, and these two games pro­vided the ev­i­dence of this im­prove­ment un­der the tute­lage of for­mi­da­ble coach Monika Pol­lard.

The first game against Vale saw Eleanor Boyd thwart­ing the Vale at­tack with some tena­cious de­fend­ing, whilst at the op­po­site end it was the ef­forts of young Ta­tiana Pol­lard for U11 scor­ing a mag­nif­i­cent hat-trick, all long range shots which found the back of the net and her first since com­ing back from in­jury, that was all that was needed to win the first game.

The sec­ond match again was a one-sided af­fair, with girl of the game Holly Hurst who com­manded the mid­field pro­vid­ing the strike force the am­mu­ni­tion they needed. With Rosie Hague’s first com­pet­i­tive it was clear it wont be long be­fore she finds the back of the net with some near poached at­tempt, but it was Ebony Ste­wart with a clin­i­cal finish, along with strong for­ward hold­ing play from Ge­or­gia Estrin and for­ag­ing right wing runs and link play from Beth Lo­mas. The set plays were well worked with short cor­ners and waves of blue shirts de­scend­ing on the Ap­ple­ton de­fence and was left for Holly
