vs Camberley and Farnborough U14 Girls - 01 Dec 2013

Home Score: 0 - Opposition Score: 0

Match Result: Draw

The U16's had a great 7 a side tournament at Camberley today, winning 4 matches and drawing 1 to make them winners overall. The draw in the first game was despite only having 6 players. For the other games we borrowed a player to make up the 7 and were then unstoppable with Freya having very little to do in goal, though when called upon was unflappable as usual and we only had 1 goal scored against us in the whole tournament. Fortunately she was called on to fill in for one of the other teams so got some action then! It was great to have Ashley showing some fantastic skill at the front, but Lucy, Jessie, Holly and Emily all had turns in attack and got in plenty of goals as well. By the last match against Trojans they looked like they'd been playing together for years and the opposition were under constant pressure resulting in a 4-0 win. Bring on the next one!

vs Fareham U14 Girls - 01 Dec 2013

Home Score: 1 - Opposition Score: 2

Match Result: Loss

Its been a tough start for the under14 girls in Hants Div 1.A young and relatively small squad have had one or two daunting fixtures against older and wiser opposition . A visit to high flying Fareham was I suspect not first on everyone's Christmas list.
Perhaps what we all find so fascinating about sport is firstly its unpredictability and secondly that small tipping points can gain momentum and go on to great things. For the parents and coach on Sunday this game was surely one of those moments , where are young squad gelled and became a team. Throughout the group small sparks of potential turned into some serious fires, and suddenly we look like a team of real potential . Alex and Daisy played with a determination not seen before , and with Lara and Freya playing at the back with confidence and style we suddenly had a defence. Izzy and Lara in midfield played with thought and purpose , ably backed up by Phoebe and Imogen.Up front Anna and Jocelyn ran the line with thought and no little skill . We are blessed with two talented goalies and this week Helena played in goal with absolute maturity while Annabelle selflessly played as sub.
The game started with an early goal from Fareham and ten minutes of intense pressure which the girls comfortably weathered . We then went on to have our best spell of the game with a number of players stepping up a gear and showing real potential . Lara and Freya were happy to push into midfield while we will all see more of the surging runs of Izzy who really stood out. A smartly taken equaliser from Freya Cheer from a short and at half time 1-1 was an excellent score from us.
The second half proceeded much as the first and quite even until a succession of shorts finally told and a good advantage from the umpire allowing Fareham to get the winner with a few minutes left.
Well done girls and lets have everyone at training this Sunday to build on yesterdays performance .. TR
