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.

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.
