Grand final winners are definitely grinners

Well…what can I say. The U15/U16 girls football team I coach won their grand final at the weekend and what a game and what a way to finish the season. The whole team turned up on the day and played out of their skins. They say you should save your best game for the grand final and the girls did just that. To win 3-0 was a great achievement but to outplay our opposition so much was a mighty effort. The team we played were the most consistent team over the latter part of the season – they are tough too – although right from the beginning I believed that if they could field a full list of players each week they would be very hard to beat. They proved it as well, being one of only two teams to beat us at all during the season (only once though!).

Anyway, I won’t list all the girls here out of respect for their privacy but I do want to say very well done and an amazing achievement, especially after taking out the minor premiership as well! To say my first year of competitive coaching went well is really understating how I feel!
