Lytham St Annes YMCA Girls U-16s 1-1 Whitworth Valley

The Under 11's girls fully deserved their first point of the season in an entertaining game played on a cold Sunday morning at Seafield Road. The girls started off brightly and it was good to see an interchange of passes between all the girls who are still getting used to each other in only their 3rd ever game. Both goalkeepers were kept busy throughout but home keeper Olivia Neal was outstanding and kept the away side at bay until early in the second half when they broke away to make it 0-1. YMCA never gave up though and captain Ellie McNally capped a fine performance by bursting through the midfield to score the equaliser which was fully deserved. Although both teams had chances to win the game the draw was a fair result. Yasmine Menezies was industrious and hard working and Lara Pilling in defence stood out.
