Saturday 7th August – Match rep – SHC Ladies vs Crostyx
report by Kathy Hammond
Southgate pipped to the Big Blue post
Southgate’s women’s squad fell at the final hurdle in the inaugural BIg Blue League going down 2-0 to Crostyx. Heading into the final fixture on August 7, the team in red and black led the league with over second-placed Crostyx by just two points. Needing just a draw, it was not to be with rookie GK Kathy Hammond between the posts. Congratulations go to Megan Lam and Megan Lockheart who were the squad Stars of the Week for their performances in midfield and defence. With thanks to Mark Langley for umpiring and Magda Charalambous for coaching.
“We had some good chances on goal, but Crostyx’s keeper was just outstanding,” conceded Kathy. “Nevertheless, this team has been so much fun for Caitlin and I to run. It’s been lovely playing with people we don’t usually get a chance to line up alongside and make some new friends. We’ve had some great results and scored some beautiful goals along the way too. Bring on next year!”
