So... after taking a victory in their tournament in Leicester could the under 12's overcome Earls Barton in the NWG League Cup?
You bet they could...
An early kick off on what would turn in to a wonderful sunny day in the AFC camp, here's what Girls football lead Kev Bull had to say.
"Really positive game of football, both AFCRD and EBFC teams played really well, in what was a well spirited and well contested game of football.
We had fantastic support as always, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, friends and members of the Club cheering the girls on (thank you all so much)
A massive thanks to our mascots 👏 Kacey, Lucy, Rosie, Sasha, Morgan, Mylee, Matilda, Harry, Billy, Riley and possibly the youngest mascot ever (Baby Tommy)
Lastly today's team! Heidi, Amy, Sofia, Rhea, Tiah, Megan P, Charlie, Megan B, Demi, Katie, Emily, Erica, Lacey - Goals scored by Megan B, Katie, Rhea & Heidi.
Huge shame that Skye and Liberty couldn't be with us 😔
Thanks to the organisers ! Northants Women and Girls Football League for all their hard work, successful day!"
