The newly formed Linfield 2011 team played their first match at New Midgley Park on Saturday 27th July against Portavogie Rangers. Although this was only their second ever match, the boys played some excellent football and showed great skill throughout the game. The team showed great determination and worked tirelessly throughout and despite only training together for a few weeks, showed a real team spirit.
A special visitor was on hand at the end of the match, when first team manager David Healy spoke to the team to offer encouragement and advice, as well as congratulating the boys on a great performance. The 2011s were then invited to stay and got to meet some of the senior players, before first team training. All in all, a great start to life at the club for these exciting new players at Linfield.
