Younger Lions to the Fore
By Stephen Tabb
Excellent away victory for the youngsters
The Sils went to Perry Barr to take on Bournville with a large, but quite young, squad.
Caro Kappes again took the role as adult/coach, and with a couple of subs to rotate, the side attacked the match with vigour.
With Josh Bowley unavailable this week, it was Jonnie's turn to play between the sticks, and he did a fine job to maintain a clean sheet, with Caro managing things in front of him alongside the outstanding Flo Collins and the non-stop battling of Rosie Robinson, who went on to take the Player of the Match hounours for her tenacity and running.
At the other end, James Wilson, growing in stature with every minute of Development hockey, got himself on the scoresheet, whilst Eva Robinson took on the mantle of senior striker (with Matt Hulbert too exhausted from Friday night antics to take part this week) and scored the second goal of the game for the Sils.
A fine win, and these youngsters continue to improve with each passing week.
Thanks to Caro for looking after the squad, and to all the parents for their continuing support.
