Last weekend saw Hackney Firsts take on the mighty Arsenal reserves in the first leg of the London Senior FA Cup competition. Despite the sheer determinations and sportsmanship of our girls they were defeated the Gunners 0 – 8. Nevertheless, the defeat wasn’t in vain, the girls had a great game which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, especially the match official Clifton who had this to say:
“…Although the result did not go your way I was proud of the way the Hackney Ladies played for the whole 90 minutes the support was fantastic the determination, courage and camaraderie was plain to see what was lacking in technical ability was more than made up by the sporting integrity of the organisation as a whole please keep up the good work…”
So well done to all the players and to everyone who came down to support team, you did Hackney proud :).
