Having had so many plans put on ice for the past year, the Hilderinc Ladies finally had the chance to be put to the action after all the training since they resumed after the Circuit Breaker on 4th July 2020.
Playing host to El’ Junior Westwood FC in the inaugural Hilderinc Invitational, the Ladies, who have spent the last eight months faithfully gearing themselves, were delighted to have the chance to pit themselves against another side outside of their own circle.
Planned with a dual objective as an International Women’s celebration and a chance for tangible assessment of progress, the girls from El’ Junior provided quality opposition for the Blacks in the four-game series, punching beyond their youth, showing good composure and poise as they put on a credible show against the hosts.
The Hil Ladies’ four sides, equally involving experienced and very new players, some who picked up the game just a week ago, were expected to have a good run out and enjoy the day as their overarching objective, especially when it was the first “competitive” action for the majority, but there were a lot of positives to take back, and some to improve on.
The captains of the sides accomplished their roles with top marks, leading the way and making quality decisions, while the rest of the players gave their full effort despite the lack of experience, but this was exactly what this invitational was meant to give all.
Not since mid-2019, when they played a 11v11 friendly game against GDT Circuit FC and won the D2D Women’s Futsal League and Cup double, that the Hilderinc Ladies have faced an external opposition, and a lot have changed since then, but the way forward is exciting with this cohort.
On another highlight, it was the first time a Hilderinc side run out in their brand-new Muddy Murphy’s sponsored kit, though it was a year overdue, as it was to have debuted during the men’s ESPZEN Saturday League Division 1 campaign in April 2020, but it was fitting that the Club’s Crown Jewels would be the first to grace it, and they certainly pulled of excellently.
The Ladies will look forward to the return leg in a couple of weeks’ time when El’ Junior Westwood FC will play host to the Blacks, and the Hilderincs will surely be keen to keep improving and progressing!
