Girls Academy: Playing for keeps
One week on from scoring twice for the Under-10s in a forward role, Katie Wilson this weekend excelled as a goalkeeper.
Despite catching the eye against Ballynahinch Olympic at Avoniel, Wilson was edged out of our latest Team of the Week by her team-mate Paige Cosgrove, who impressed against Bloomfield as part of another busy few days for the Cliftonville Girls Academy.
