Borough squad can be proud of performance despite loss

Brent under-10 girls put on a strong performance in their first Capital Girls League fixture against Barnet Nightingales, despite an 8-5 defeat.

The Brent girls played quick attacking football, with Apollonia Margetson engineering the game in midfield and scoring a great individual goal to boot.

Margetson was also able to provide four assists for striker Kathleen Ferreira who scored some fine goals.

Marley May Huber worked hard, helping the defence of twins Scarlet and Marnie Hunn and protecting keeper Georgie Stone, who did a good job in goal.

Brent competed well with the score 4-3 at the break, but Barnet’s experience began to tell in the second half as they went on the clinch the win.

Coach Patricia Taylor said: “I’m proud of the girls, who are improving all the time.”

Elsewhere, the Brent under-12 boys’ team went down 5-2, while the under-13s lost 3-0 in their match with Camden & Islington.
