Royals win first round Nike FC Cup

Well done to our senior women on their 3-0 win against Meadow Park in Rnd 1 of the Nike FC Cup. The first half saw a 15min goal frenzy with Lydia Schifferegger, and new recruits Diarna Cartwright and Talia Silvestros all finding the back of the net. 
The second half saw us produce some fantastic attacking play with Talia and Diarna continuing to pile on pressure and Valantina Shammoon providing brilliant creativity up front. With Meadow Park keeping possession in the later stages of the match, Michelle Vidanoski and skipper Alicia Cullinane played key roles in keeping the defense composed and made it difficult for Meadow Park to find the gap in the defensive line. Congratulations to all who who made their debut for the club today. 
With this being Jonathan Clemente's first game in charge, it's evident that he's worked hard to develop a strong side during the pre-season, with an impressive first match and many positives to draw from. Well done to the team for winning their first game of the season.
