The U12 played their first game in the league against Samba Allstars U12s. They started well with early goals from Florence, Isla, and Maisie, before new goalkeeper Scarlet made her first real save. The girls were playing some fantastic futsal and should have scored further goals. That said Samba played some good futsal and good defending and goalkeeping kept them out. The game finished in a comfortable win for Bootham, with everybody getting on the score sheet.
