Ladies 4s 2 - 0 Ashford L2s

November 23, 2019 - 11:30 am

After a good team talk in the changing rooms, we were ready to challenge mid table Ashford. We all agreed that after playing 2nd in the league Teddington and having 80% possession, it was possible to beat anyone in this league.

We took that attitude into the game and it paid off. We had 90% if not more possession first half and could have easily been 4 or 5-0, but we just couldn’t find the goal. It was the same 2nd half. We ran rings round them with our passing and we set the press beautifully each time, they were unable to get it past us. Then Michelle swiped a beautiful high shot over the keeper and into the back of the net 1-0. Few minutes later, Gill followed suit and struck another in off post.

They had several short corners, but our mighty defence was not letting anything through. FT 2-0. Ladies, after such a frustrating few weeks, your persistence and hard work paid off. Each week I praise you for your determination and not letting your heads go down. I know what a great team I have in front of me and always believed we could do better. We have and we will.

Congratulations to Gill for WOW, and thanks for helping out the 4s this week, along with Sarah, Megan and Karen, we couldn’t of done it without your help.
