Cambridge fail to win on Hoover's return
Cambridge Women fell to a home defeat against Chichester City Ladies on Sunday at Unwin Sports Ground.
Despite the return of club legend and manager Kevin Hoover, Cambridge could not raise their game enough to trouble Chichester.
During midweek Cambridge had got back into the groove by drawing with Luton but found Chichester more awkward opponents. Chichester who have been in form had beaten Crystal Palace during the week to ensure confidence was high when travelling to Cambridgeshire.
The game in the early stages proved to be pretty equal with Cambridge slightly better as their visitors seemed to be a bit off colour. With Chichester not at their best Cambridge should really have grabbed the initiative and converted a number of chances but they were reduced to quite a few shots from distance which really didnt do enough to trouble the City keeper.
The half finished goaless with three points up for grabs.
The second half break saw the visitor's manager make a change bringing on Shrubb in an atempt to affect the game. The substitution seem to bring a more positive approach by City and it showed in their performance as they began to pressure Cambridge.
Soon enough the pressure told and Cambridge fell behind. Midway through the half Hannah Goodchild was baffled by the decision to award a free kick against her when the Chichester forward seen to fall over her own feet. From the dangerous position substitute Shrubb put in a great delivery which was headed home by Steph Madden.
The goal gave City the cushion they needed but had to be aware of a Cambridge back lash. Although Cambridge improved and kept playing their passing football they could not breakdown a resolute Chichester defence.
Cambridge struggled to settle down after the goal and Chichester hit the post and Liz Pamplin in goal pulled off a fine save which left her with a sore wrist. She picked herself up and finished the game only to rush straight to A&Eand find out she'd suffered a fracture and is now in plaster. That sums up the determination that runs through the squad right now. The home side did eventually settle down and pressed for the equalizer.
Sadly for Cambridge they fell further behind when Chichester debutant Ambler coolly finished after a sweet pass from Wride.
The game ended in defeat for the Blues but they will aim to hit back next weekend when they travel to Chesham United Ladies who are currently top.
After the match manager Kevin Hoover said "All in all I was pleased with the performance but frustrated that we got nothing from the game which I thought we deserved. Decisions like the free kick that led to the goal seem to be a regular thing at the moment and we're not getting the rub of the green. I'm sure the next win is around the corner if we continue to play like we did on Sunday, I can't fault the attitude of the players and we're working hard on the training pitch to put things right."
Hoover added "Next up is a trip to Chesham United who are top of the league and unbeaten so the pressure is off to an extent. No one expects us to win but we're confident we can take something from the game. "
Cambridge: Pamplin, Jenkins, Bennett, Goodchild, Geoghan, Burt, Turner, Hewitt (Kempski), Baker, Bright, Richardson.

CAMBRIDGE RANGERS 1-3 CAMBRIDGE WOMEN DEVELOPMENT SQUAD
Cullum and Greed help Dev maul neighbour's Rangers
Cambridge Women Devlopment Squad won their fourth game in a row by spanking local rivals Cambridge Rangers.
The Dev are currently on a great run and ran up a cricket score against a sorry Rangers side. The victory keeps Cambridge on top of the S-Tech league and no doubt will improve their goal difference.
Cambridge Dev travelled to their neighbours not sure what to expect due to a pre season upheaval.
The game started pretty evenly with Rangers competing against a Dev squad which contained their usual mix of Youth and experience. They were also boosted by a returning Liz Pamplin.
Rangers managed to hold on until fifteen minutes in when Dev opened the scoring. Kags Whitehead raced clear down the right channel got to the area and unleashed a shot which the Rangers keeper could only push into her own goal. Four minutes later it was two when Ellie Cullum slotted home after being put through by the on form Sarah O'Rouke.
On 24 minutes Dev were awarded a penalty when Clara Greed was held back as she came inside her full back. The spotkick was tucked away by Becca Fay. Minutes later the goals kept raining when Liz Pamplin put in a good corner which was driven home by Ellie Cullum. Rangers were somewhat shellshocked by the clinical finishing by Dev. It got worse when Cullum sealed her hatrick after good work by Sarah O'Rouke. With the half time break on the horizon Dev managed to get two more goals. Becca Fay done brilliant by scoring direct from the corner and Cullum made it a magnificent seven and her fourth when she showed great composure driving home beautifully from the edge of the eighteen yard area.
Half time came with Dev handsomely way out in front and looking hungry for more goals. For Rangers it was a case of damage limitation.
Dev with a big lead made some changes during the break but there was no change in performance as it only took five minutes for them to add to the scoresheet when two goals were scored. Firstly Sarah O' Rouke side footed home from close range and then amazingly captain Emma Roberts made it nine with a viscious shot from 25 yards which sailed into the top corner.
Minutes later the goals contiued to flow when Maria Misovcova drove home after ball broke kindly for her and it was soon eleven when the impressive Clara Greed linked with the dangerous O'Rouke before finishing. With Rangers now flagging Dev pushed down on the gas and Greed set up O'Rouke for her second of the game.
Rangers unfortunately had nothing left and Dev pressed on with further goals from Misovcova, Gemma Clark and Greed to give Dev a massive win.
Although a fantastic win for Dev it must be said Cambridge Rangers were better than the scoreline suggests and all through the game tried to play football. They will develop as the season goes on while Dev continue their early season dominance.
Next up for Dev is Fulbourn Blubirds Ladies on Sunday.
