Sadly, due to bad weather, Georgia Tuckett and Anna Gardner were unable to play as the U15B tournament was cancelled. Caterham Cougars are extremely proud to have 5 girls chosen to represent their county. In addition, Zara Russell, Kitty Fitzgerald, Georgia Tuckett, Pippa Lloyd, Roberta Lack, Anna Gardner have been accepted into the U15 England Academy.

A friendly last week against Reigate Dragonflies brought a decisive victory for the U15 Caterham Cougars. Roberta Lack ( captain) and Pippa Lloyd (Vice Captain) led the team to a decisive victory today over Reigate Dragonflies 12-2. Without our goalie today, special thanks must go to Mia Hebden and Roberta who each played half the match in goal. The attacking team passed the ball brilliantly opening up numerous scoring opportunities taken by Roberta Lack, Pippa Lloyd, Anna Wright, Mia Hebden and Anna Gardner. The midfield players led by Annabel Mitchell ran up and down the length of the pitch double tagging and turning the ball, keeping the pressure on the Reigate defensive team. On the occasions that Cougars had to defend, it was done skilfully and decisively by Mary Neil-Smith, Megan McKeague, Mai Wallace and Izzy Woods. Special mention and thanks must also go to the four U13’s being Niamh, Maira, Milla and Amy who played up for the U15 team. Watching these girls play, I feel confident that the future success of Caterham Cougars U15’s will be safe in their hands. (Picture of the girls after the Reigate match.)
