Result: 6-1 (Loss)
Goal Scorer: Amelia Scott
Player of the match: Evelyn Kenrick
Malvern travelled to Abberley Hall School for a seven-a-side friendly. We had a rough start, and Abberley was quick to attack, forcing Malvern to play very defensively. But there were some fantastic saves by Evelyn Kenrick as Malvern was left desperately trying to clear the ball. A couple of early goals from Abberley left us 4-0 down at half time.
Malvern started the second half positively, carrying the ball into space, using the width to drive with some lovely 1-2’s by Amelia Scott and Erin Wakefield looking to threaten Abberley’s defence. A great cross by Grace Coady and a cheeky tap in on the back post from Amelia Scott lifted Malvern’s energy and the girls continued to press Abberley’s defence.
Lots to reflect on and we go again next week!
