Paviors U13 Girls also headed to Nottingham Casuals Pitch up and Play on Sunday 8th March to play a round robin of games.

Five players playing their first ever match (some after only one or two training sessions) with the other seven players appearing in only their second match.

Our first game against a mix of two teams was a well balanced and competitive match. Impressive tackling and running with special mention to Poppy Greentree, Ellie Cross and Millie Briggs (on her debut) helped to make this first game a positive one.

Our second and third matches were against a quality, experienced Mansfield side. However, you cannot coach courage, toughness, tenacity and team spirit, which the Paviors girls showed in abundance in two tough matches. Getting over the line with a try was a credit to the team’s perseverance.

Well done to Olivia Eggleshaw, Marie-Anne Hayes, Millie Briggs, Isabelle Noble and  Megan Griffiths on brilliant debuts. Neve Greasley, Mollie Benner, Anoushka Milosavljevic, Martha Hodgson , Amelie Hunter, Poppy Greentree, Ellie Cross all played well and showed huge improvement from their first on match 6 weeks ago. Every player is mentioned as this was a real team effort and every single player contributed to that. Well done to all!

Next stop Oakham on 29th March for a fixture with the Girls from Oakham, Melton Mowbray and Hinckley RFC’s…….we can’t wait!
