The U13s were back at the stafflex against West end Terriers. This was a very one sided game from start to finish with Town dominating possession of the ball and we took the lead in the 1st 5 minutes when Evie Franks slotted the ball past the keeper.
Town doubled there lead, this time through Beth Cannon who cut in from the right and neatly slotted the ball past the keeper.
Town added a 3rd before half time when Grace Morrison played a through ball into Evie Franks who scored her 2nd goal of the game.
Half time 3-0
Town continued to control the game in the 2nd half and they managed to notch another 6 goals which came from Beth Cannon x3, Imaan Ali x2 and Imogen Butterworth to seal another fantastic win for the U13s.
Full time 9-0
Player of the match went to Grace Morrison who produced a solid midfield display.
Next week the 13s are back at the stafflex this time Handsworth are the visitors.
Town failed to reach the performance levels shown in recent games as, on this occasion, Barnsley took the honours by cashing in on some poor defending by the home team.
After Barnsley deservedly went ahead inside fifteen minutes, Town somehow crawled back in to the game with quick fire finishes from Hulme and Valenti.
The visitors then took control with three more goals before the break.
The second half saw little improvement for Town, who found themselves 6-2 down before Harris and player of the match Hulme scored either side of another Barnsley goal.
Despite the disappointing result, keeper McKie made some fantastic saves to give a semblance of respectability to the scoreline , while the efforts of scorers Valenti and Harris attracted plaudits from the Town supporters.
Our U13s made it back to back wins by comfortably beating Barnsley ladies. Town dominated the 1st half playing terrific football from back to front and it wasn’t long before they took the lead through Beth Cannon who found the top corner from outside the area to notch her 1st league goal of the season.
Town continued to threaten and eventually doubled there lead through Lucia Morrison.
Half time 0-2
The 2nd half was a different game as the wind picked up and affected the flow of the game. Town had a few chances to add to there tally but it was Barnsley who scored to make it 2-1.
This seemed to inspire the town girls and from this point they dominated the rest of the game and scored 3 quick goals through Evie Franks, Ava Jones and a Own goal.
Full Time 1-5
Overall a great performance from the girls and a deserved win. Player of the match went to Ava Jones who had a fantastic game in midfield.
Next week we are back at the stafflex against West end.
The U13s were at home for the 1st league game of the season against a strong Millmoor side.
Town started the game well playing some great football and creating a few chances early on but it was Millmoor who scored the only goal of the game against the run of play. Town continued to push for a equaliser and they came very close when Lucia Morrisons shot was cleared off the line by the Millmoor defender.
Half time 0-1
The 1st 10 minutes of the 2nd half were fairly even but then for the rest of the half it almost became attack against defence with town really pushing forwards for a equaliser but they couldn’t break down the resilient Millmoor defence. They could and should have had a penalty with around 15 minutes to go when Imaan Ali was brought down in the area but the referee decided there was no contact. Town continued to threaten a equaliser getting corner after corner and having shot after shot but they just couldn’t find a way past Millmoor’s keeper who received player of the match for them.
Full time 0-1
Towns player of the match went to Sienna Noble who put in a real captains performance.
Overall the result was disappointing but the performance from all the town girls was excellent.
Next up for the 13s is another home game, this time Dronfield are the visitors.
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.
