Draycott Ladies took part in their first-ever match against an experienced side from Weymouth.

Draycott Ladies played their first full match against an experienced team from Weymouth.

Although the team were heavily beaten, many lessons were learned in their first-ever game and the girls kept positive and smiling throughout and scored a goal through the impressive Amelia Keevil, after a great run and cross by player of the match Eviee Smith.

Eviee showed fantastic ability throughout and was a thorn in the side to the more experienced opponents, almost scoring on several occasions.

Her sister and team captain, Millie was also influential and a strong figure throughout, despite a ball hitting her in the face.

Along with their mother, Lesley, a rock at the back, the Smith family were a shining light through the spine of the team.

However, despite great individual performances this was truly a team effort with every player a credit and they all deserve a mention, especially as many were playing their first-ever game of football.

After the game the players all retired to the Strawberry Special pub, along with their opponents, to enjoy a drink or two and some great food courtesy of landlords Mick and Lori Toms.

The ladies would like to thank Cheddar Self Storage; The Strawberry Special; Draycott FC committee and first team; the supporters who came along; manager Mark Smith; referee; Ian Smith and opponents who travelled all the way from Weymouth.
