Ladies 2nd XI vs Ely Ladies 2nd XI On Saturday, the Ladies 2 hosted top of the table Ely City 2’s. Ladies 2’s had a good strong start to the game and held most of the play in Ely’s half. With Jess making her debut upfront rather than being kitted up in pads. Alas, she could not find the back of the net due to the amazing keeping skills of Ely Goalie who denied several shots on goal. Ely then broke and were able to score from a post tap in. Half time saw Ely City leading by 1-0. The […]
Spalding Ladies 1 V 4 Newmarket Ladies We bravely trekked to Spalding in the fog, and yet played in unseasonably warm weather with 3 regular players unavailable and one delayed by an hour. Those called to the cavalry, Vicky Benedikz, Rebecca Alexander and Maisy Swann all did stirling work and did more than plug the holes, they created opportunities but the score was 0-0 at half time. Faye asked for short corners to be won but our first 2 goals came from Maisy being on post with deft touches for well weighted balls fed in by Charlotte Redden and then […]
Score – 1:0 loss The third game of the season saw Newmarket Ladies 2 side travel to California (if only) Road to take on St Ives Ladies 3. With the fuel crisis still rampaging, and the ladies’ side somewhat depleted since last season, the Ladies 2’s made the decision to head to St Ives with just 9 players to show St Ives that we mean business no matter how many players we had! With donuts in hand for a sugar kick courtesy of Stef Heslop and a pre-game pep talk from coach Sue Bullimore, the Ladies 2’s were ready to […]
L1s beat Peterborough 7v1 whilst the L3s went 3 better winning 10v1 against Kettering 4s. The L2s whilst beaten 1v0 did so with only 9 players an impressive effort.The men’s sides had a tougher time at the office, with the M1s losing 2v0 to Ipswich 2s. The M2s produced a Jekyll and Hyde performance, gifting IES 4s a 0v4 half time lead, but we’re unlucky not to salvage a point eventually going down 3v5. The M3 game was conceded.Thank you to all the umpires and supporters who braved some rather damp weather.
Ladies 1 travelled to Huntingdon’s new ground in the building development that is Northstowe. Bravely encountering diggers on closed roads, the squad then dealt with the fluffy carpeted field, adjusting the way we played as a team and individuals. We adjusted very well, 6-0 up at half time, 5 goalsfrom open play with Capt Zoë Bailey scoring a brace to match Di Farrell-Thomas and Georgia Atherton scoring from a penalty corner set piece. Playercoach Faye Andreou gave positive halftime feedback, but stated she wanted more goals. However Huntingdon’s captain rallied her team and theonly goal in the second half was from Faye herself. This was a cracking start to our season after our game was abandoned for injury last week. Next week we meet City of Peterborough 4 at home, 11.30.
