Newport Eagles 16-17

This season’s team is made up from six girls who moved up from last year’s u10 age group, along with five new girls to the club, four of which have never played football before. The team have blended well over the opening weeks playing in the SGWFL Division 1 and are currently in the top half of the league.

Gabby Bickley – Gabby has made the ‘keeper position her own this season and is growing in confidence with each game, pulling off fine saves and good clearances in each match. Moving up to larger goals this year has not seemed to have affected her.

Paris Callaway – Paris is a newcomer to football, but is giving her all at all sessions and on the pitch. Having scored on her debut, Paris has played mainly in defence with a powerful clearing kick and is not daunted by any situation.

Emily Bullock – another newcomer to football. Always with a smile on her face Emily she has slotted into the team with ease, asking to play in defence she is keen to learn and always gives it her best.

Lilly Watson – Lilly has played in defence for the last three years and is another who has moved up from u10’s. Never shirking from a tackle Lilly is persistent and never gives in. She also has a strong strike from dead ball positions.

Lucia Rooney – Naturally left footed, but equally strong with her right, Lucia flies up and down the left wing coming up with a finish or providing a ball for others.

Grace Bartlett – Grace is an attacking midfielder who goes into each tackle with conviction and always seems to score or assist each week.

India Ellerby – Another novice to football India has proved to be strong in the tackle and has keeps on going from first to final whistle. Ever eager will prove to be a strong box to box player throughout the season.

Georgia Bartlett – The smallest player in stature but makes one of the trickier players with the ball at her feet. Very deceptive and beats many an opposition player.

Piya Dhatt – Another newcomer to the club who has settled in like she has always been at the club. Piya plays on the right wing and is deceptively strong. A girl who loves to play football.
