oh, I wish my tackling looked like this!!!!
I realised just now that I haven't written about my big football match...the one where I was upset cos I was on the bench... Well, it happened on Saturday last and it was absolutely brilliant!!!
Yes, I was on the bench for the first 10 minutes or so, but then we had rolling subs so I took my turn and we all played an equal amount. I played as right back and Good Grief did I love it!!! I would never have guessed that I would enjoy getting stuck in so much. We were playing against the men ( husbands and boyfriends ) and I knew no fear!!!
Even if I do say so myself, I played well and made some good tackles as well as harrying the guys as they tried to get to goal. In the end we girls won 4-2. Such good fun and I felt a real camaraderie with the other girls. If you have a chance of joining a team I cannot recommend it enough!!
