Coach Chloe Spiteri shares her thoughts on debuting on U14 Capital Girls League and what to expect for their second game of the season.
''After the first League game of the season last Saturday, it was a good experience and wake up call for the girls. It was a majority of the girls first time playing 11 a-side having played mainly 7 a-side before, which is a big step up. They also didn't have any supporters watching as spectators are banned due to covid guidelines, which can affect as well.
My team talk before the match was that I will not be bothered by the scoreline of the match, but instead, I would be bothered about targets I set out in the match as a team. For instance making lots of passes in the game, keeping the ball within the opposition third etc. The first half was a real wake up call for them. Lots of goals were conceded, we struggled as a team to keep possession of the ball, and lacked confidence.
However, after a good team talk half time, the girls felt inspired and went into the second half with a much better attitude and felt inspired and managed to keep to their target and even managed to score a superb goal by Alexandra.
Going into our second match this Saturday which is at home, I feel the girls know what is of expected of them now and will show a different attitude on the pitch and will be inspired to get a win after last week's match. As a team, they have the ability to win if they work hard as a team and keep their heads up and keep to the game plan. Also, they will hopefully feel more motivated and inspired having their parents and friends watching and cheering them on.''
