This week’s Footballers of the Week are the Prospect Lake/Peninsula U15 Silver Girls.
Coached by Geoff Burkinsaw & Susie Ritchie and managed by LoAnne Burkinsaw, the team is most definitely in the right division and are competing on a regular basis despite a short roster of players. The past two weeks have shown the management exactly what they were hoping for when they put this team on the field for their first game in September. A recent tie against one of the top teams and a 4-0 win this weekend have given them some confidence heading into the last game before the winter break. The team is currently sitting in the middle of the pack of an eight team division and is due to play the top team this coming weekend.
“They are great girls to coach and good teammates to one another so win or lose I love getting to be around this group,” said Ben Hooks, PLSC TD. “It is truly a pooled effort with lots of Prospect Lake and lots of Peninsula players and coaches/manager, both clubs are proud of these girls.”
This team is also one of the 10 random teams to get an early Christmas present and have to prove their addresses this year so for the extra effort we thank them for their speedy attention to the matter and hope they are as speedy on the field this weekend.
Congratulations on being named this week’s Footballers of the Week!
