I'm in the girls under 11 Taranaki soccer team. My First game was in Wanganui. I had to go on the bus with boys and girls. When we got there we had to go do a warm up. The first team we faced was Manawatu. I played back and was feeling very nervous as the whistle blew and the game began. I began to feel better as I played. The second team we faced was Wanganui and I played back again. I enjoyed playing these games. My family and my nana and grandad were cheering me on and encouraged me to play the best I can.
Our next game will be in Taranaki, not sure where yet. I am excited about my next game. I am getting more skills and becoming more confident as I tackle, trap the ball and pass it.
