UPDATE ON NON-LEAGUE, WOMEN’S & GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL SEASONS

FA Non-League Football Update

National League System

The NLS and the women’s football pyramid were able to build a consensus amongst their leagues and, where possible, aimed to create a consistent approach across all leagues, whilst taking into account the unique characteristics of each individual league.

As a result, The FA and NLS steps three to six have reached a consensus that their 2019-20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged.

LEAGUE – HTWFC AWAY TO WEST BROMWICH

15th March 2020
West Bromwich Albion 4 – 2 Huddersfield Town Women

HTWFC vs West Bromwich 15-03-20

A poor second half performance saw Town slip to a league defeat away to West Bromwich Albion.

Albion started the stronger and put Town’s goal under early pressure with their right winger Natalie Murray causing havoc down Town’s left side. Town appeared to have weathered the early storm but then in the 22nd Tash Tezgel scored with a shot after Town failed to clear their lines from a corner.

Town thought that they had equalised with 34 minutes gone when Sarah Danby poked the ball home from close range only to be denied by the assistant referee’s flag for offside.

Town were getting more into the game and drew level in the 38th minute when a Mallin corner was headed home by top scorer Lucy Sowerby and, things got even better for Town when following another corner Vicky Abbott scored her first of the season, poking the ball home following a goal mouth scramble in the final minute of the half.

Half time 1-2

Sowerby could have put Town two goals clear early in the second half but was denied by a good save from the keeper.

Town’s lead survived for 16 minutes of the half as Albion pressure finally told and they equalised with a header.

Things went from bad to worse when they took the lead again with 20 minutes remaining with another header from a set piece.

Town huffed and puffed for the remainder of the game and were undone once again with four minutes left as a quick break found their player unmarked in the box and she finished off the scoring to make it 4-2.

A disappointing performance from Town who don’t have to wait long for their chance of redemption. They travel to 5th placed Burnley on Wednesday, 7.45pm kick off, and then on Sunday are away again, this time to 2nd placed Derby County, 2pm ko.

U16’s CUP FINAL: Clinical finishing wins cup in style

14th March 2020
Huddersfield Town 6 – 0 Sheffield United

HTWFC U16's Cup Final Winners - 14-03-20

After a nervous and hesitant performance in the first-half, Town stepped up the tempo after the break to destroy the visitors resistance with some scintillating football and clinical finishing to win the cup in style.

The first goal of the game came in the 48th minute when Town broke in to the box and the unfortunate Blades defender, attempting to prevent the ball reaching a free attacker, knocked the ball into an empty net.

Impressive Tegan Stewart-Pybus headed  home from Gaby Pearson’s cross to calm Town’s nerves on 58 minutes.

Five minutes later, the game was put beyond the visitors’ reach when Laura Hulme smashed home the excellent Alex Mckie’s pass.

On 66 minutes player of the match Alyssa Valenti latched on to Pearson’s pass to ride two tackles before driving home from 12 yards.

In the 70th minute Isobella Kington was played in by Madison Rodd to calmly slot the ball into the bottom corner.

In the final minute Kington set up Hulme, who completed her double with a superb finish to complete the rout.

The referee’s player of the match was Laura Hulme.

U14’s CUP FINAL – Extra Time blow gives opposition the win.

14th March 2020
TOWN WOMEN U14’S 2 – 4 MILLMOOR JUNIORS

HTWFC U4s - Cup Final - 14-03-20

The Under 14s stumbled at the last hurdle in the cup final against Millmoor but played superbly in a fantastic advert for the game.

The sides had met twice already this season and after both of those games were extremely close, the third encounter of the season was no different.

Both teams started strongly with both teams putting in big hits on each other in the tackle for the entirety of the game.

Town took the lead on 20 minutes when Hannah Burgess curled a Beckham like free kick in at the near post.

Millmoor fought back and fired wide of the target a couple of times but the first half ended with neither side being given any half chances.

HT: 1-0

The physical and fair battle continued and Millmoor found an equaliser 15 minutes after the break. Town failed to clear their lines on 3 or 4 occassions and the ball fell nicely for the Millmoor striker to stab home.

Town hit straight back as 5 minutes later Firth went on a run down the left, beat the full back and squares to Burgess who strolled the ball into the bottom corner left footed.

Hall and Harris both had chances to put the game to bed but the Millmoor keeper (who was MOM) pulled off a series of spectacular saves and clearances to keep her side in it.

Going into the final minute, disaster struck for Town when a cross come shot wasn’t dealt with after a communication mix up and the ball trickled in off the back post.

FT: 2-2

The late goal clearly took its toll and hurt Town who failed to recover from the blow as Millmoor struck 2 goals in quick succession. Town had nothing left in their tank but fought to the end in another game against the reds that couldve gone either way.

AET: HTWFC 2-4 Millmoor
Scorers: Burgess x2
MOM: Charlie Ramsden
