Admiralettes New Clothes

Wednesday evening 16th August was a special night for BK’S as it was to be the maiden game that the Admiralettes would wear their new home shirts, sponsored by our charity.

The team were to play a pre-season friendly against FC UNITED from Manchester, at little Wembley. This was always going to be a difficult task, with United being placed several leagues above our ladies and having recently beaten Leeds United ladies 15-0!!!

Kick off set for 7.30pm; we were only a few minutes behind schedule as we proudly lead the team out onto the pitch, to line up for pre match photos showcasing the shiny new kit.

Pleasantries out of the way the game commenced and it was apparent from the outset that FC UNITED were not going to take it easy on  the Admiralettes as there crisp smooth passing left our ladies chasing shadows for the opening minutes of the game.

The Admiralettes soon brushed early cobwebs aside and began to challenge the opposition more effectively breaking up more of their attacks and beginning to forge into the opposition half.

Although UNITED ran awayworthy winners after the 90 minutes, our Admiralettes fought long and hard, never let their heads drop and showed increased self-belief and confidence as the game progressed. Not only that, they looked fantastic doing it in their new strips!!!!

So far it has been a challenging pre-season but there are real signs of good things to come when the season starts for real!
