Barking Ladies match reports

First Team


The last four years had seen Barking enjoy the luxury of joining the competition in round three, but a dismal record of defeat at the first hurdle in three of those four years meant that the relegation at the end of last season from the F.A. Premier League into the South East Combination League had brought hope that this misfortune could be turned round as they now have to enter at round one.

So the team travelled up the A12 to Wivenhoe FC to take on a Colchester Utd side that they defeated ten days ago 1-0 in the League, and starting to enjoy a little run that they were confident in extending.

Manager LISA BRIVATI had to do without LORNA ESTHERBY (Knee) and VICKI STAPLES (Holiday), and KELLY STOCK whose work commitments meant a late arrival and a position on the subs bench to start.

The opening exchanges of the match were very tight, both sides were keen to take no chances. On 8 mins Barking won a corner on the left, BRIVATI swung the ball in, Colchester cleared but the ball was returned over the outgoing Colchester defence into the path of NICOLA CARTY but the ball ran through to the United keeper. On 11 mins BRIVATI found NICOLE MANNING in space, she worked herself into a shooting opportunity but her clipped shot went straight into the arms of keeper Louise Murphy.

Within a minute Colchester created their first opening, breaking clear down the right wing a wicked drilled shot was fired into Barking keeper MICHELLE BRIDGEMAN's side netting.

On 22 Mins Barking came so close to opening their account. Again a corner from BRIVATI was met and headed goalwards by MANNING, only for Colchester to clear off the line.

The match again drifted into a tight affair but came alight minutes from the half time whistle. Barking again forced the home side to clear off the line, BECKY GARNER chased a through ball, beat keeper Murphy to it, rounded her and she shot was scrambled away off the line.

Colchester went down the other end, got a ball in behind the Barking defence and slotted under the on-coming BRIDGEMAN, with Barking watching the ball hit a post, roll down the line and just over for the home side to take a 1-0 lead on 45 minutes. The half time whistle blew as the game re-started.

Barking made two half time changes bring on STOCK & BROOKS for DEVITT and CARTY, and KELLY STOCK looked lively in the opening exchanges.

But on 53 minutes it was 2-0 as Barking were caught for pace on the right side, and Colchester took full advantage to slam past BRIDGEMAN high into the far corner.

Barking continued to huff and puff, Colchester were happy to concentrate on defending well and hit Barking on the counter, and therefore the game started to die on its feet.

Barking did create some half chances, but half chances they were and it summed up a performance that was poor in attitude and lacking and real class and creativity.

Manager BRIVATI was bitterly disappointed at the end with her players, and hopefully this will act as a small kick up the backside before next weeks League match.

TEAM : Michelle Bridgeman, Lou Rodwell, Donna Devitt, Harriet Sim, Ange Robinson, Kirsty McGrath, Becki Garner, Lisa Brivati, Nicole Manning, Brooke Herbert, Nicola Carty. SUBS : Claire Brooks, Jo McGuinness, Kelly Stock.

Reserve Team


The Reserves looked to maintain their unbeaten record, and they managed this with a comfortable 3-0 win which in truth should have been much more.

Barking missed a host of first half chances, but still managed to go in at the break 2-0 up with goals from STACY SAVAGE on 19 minutes, a lovely right foot shot from inside the area, and LIANE PRIOR on 35 mins when she raced onto a through ball, and placed past the advancing keeper.

The second half saw the visitors enjoy the majority of the play, but Barking still had plenty of chances and they had to wait until ten minutes before from full time before SAVAGE scored her second from close range when Southend faild to clear a corner.

Overall a good performance and another three points to keep the Reserves top of the table.

TEAM : Sarah Ball, Abby Clark, Maddie Zucker, Hayley Unwin, Haylee Bernet, Vanessa Doherty, Nicola Maggs, Sophie Helps, Jemma Barham, Stacy Savage, Liane Prior. SUBS : Julie Mustart, Kerri Harrison, Kerry Harrison



The Under 10's disappointing season continued when they lost this contest against Belmont. Barking did put in a much improved performance but had no answer to the extra power and strength of the Belmont front two and the centre halves.

Belmont scored on 16 mins and 23 minutes, both goals the same as Belmont accelerated away from their smaller opponents to crash the ball past Barking keeper HOLLY CLARY.

The second half continued much in the same vein as the first, Barking did get into the opposition box but were unable to score, whilst when Belmont did break forward they looked threatening and dangerous. Belmont wrapped it up with a third goal on 55 minutes to take the points.

TEAM : Holly Clary, Shaynece Rawlings, Paris Jones, Charlotte Russell, Alex Small, Kayleigh Debenham, Katie Whitehead, Jayne Bentham, Emma King, Victoria Moorton, Keeley Walker, April Patten.



The A Team met up with their arch rivals from last season, and it was deja vu as the Hertfordshire side took the spoils. Barking just did not get going and overall it was a disappointing performance and result.

TEAM : Amy Vincent, Khaquila Rawlings, Vikki Eden, Holly Leader, Sian Burton, Molly Patten, Megan Woolgrove, Jodie Foster, Abbie West, Demi Whitehead.


Whilst the A Team were having a disaster back in Mayesbrook Park, the B Team thought they were also on the verge of a bad day as holidays robbed them of two players and illness robbed them of two more shortly before kick off, meaning the team travelled with only six players for this seven-a-side game.

However GRACE SALE opened the scoring in the second minute, and when Barking keeper MILLIE DEVEREUX saved a penalty for the second week running, Barking started to believe life wasn't so bad after all. On 11 minutes ROSIE JACOB grabbed Barking's second and when GRACE SALE scored her second and Barking's third on 18 minutes it was all over.

The opening minute of the second half saw Barking awarded a penalty but GRACE SALE fired wide. After a ding-dong ten minutes GRACE SALE finally grabbed that hat trick to secure a great win for the hard working team.

TEAM : Millie Devereux, Adele Ambrose, Grace Sale, Hayley Evans, Roise Jacob, Cassie Roberts.



The Under 10 Team delighted Manager KIRSTY McGRATH with a excellent team performance. They got off to the best start with two goals in the first three minutes when DAISY COOK, following good work from MEGAN WOOD.

COOK came close to grabbing her hat trick on 15 mins with a great shot from outside the box, but the keeper saved.

The second half again started well from Barking, with MEGAN WOOD had a good shot well saved, and with five minutes remaining HAYLEY BUSBY also went close forcing the Garston keeper to make a fine save.

Overall the best performance of the season by the team and hopefully more to come.

TEAM : Megan Wood, Katie Nelson, Jemma Lord, Daisy Cook, Sian Polley, Hayley Busby, Hannah Wild, Natasha Bessex, Karla Joseph, Chloe Palmer.

A trip to Denham proved fruitful for Barking as they pushed on strong in the first half. On 6 mins Nicola Moore fails to convert a cross for the right. 10 minutes later Nicole Manning sets up Becky Garner whose shot is well saved by Denham keeper. A few minutes later a fine effort from Ang Robinson sails just over from 25 yards.

The ball stayed pretty much in Barking's half and on the 25 minute Kirsty McGrath runs onto a through ball from Lisa Brivati and scores into the bottom left. Denham has a shot on goal at 33 mins but is bravely saved by Michelle Bridgeman. The last chance in the first half by Becky Garner was tipped over the crossbar by Denham keeper.

Kirsty McGrath is substituted by Brooke Herbert on 68 minutes. Denham equalize on the 71st minute when Denhams Walker beats Ang Robinson and tempts Michelle Bridgeman out of goal and rolls the ball home.

Denham have more time on the ball for the next ten minutes but Barking defence play well. Barking bring on Karen Staples for Becky Garner. Ten minutes before the final whistle Nicola Moore runs from half way line, shakes off two defenders and slips the ball under keeper to score a fine predators goal.

Barking battled well without a couple of regular players and took the lead on the 23rd minute from a scrambled corner with the ball landing at Vanessa Doherty's feet, who with a quick turn poked the ball right footed into the bottom corner.

The second half was scrappy and Barking looked to have sealed the points until Chelmsford were awarded a contraversial penalty on the 90th minute. Barking keeper Sarah Ball was unable to save and unfortunately let in only her 3rd goal of the season.

Team: Sarah Ball, Abby Clark, Maddie Zucker, Hayley Unwin, Haylee Bernet, Vanessa Doherty, Nicola Maggs, Sophie Helpts, Lianne Prior, Stacy Savage, Jemma Barham.

Three minutes later, the goalkeeper saved Lisa Brivati’s shot. Barking had a further two attempts in the run up to the half time whistle, Kirsty McGrath shot over the bar and the keeper saved Nicola Carty’s.

The second half saw Barking off to a slow start -Kirsty McGrath being substituted for Leanne Couch but Bedford didn't rise either. The ball was spending most of this half up and down the pitch.

Barking Ladies Reserves 12 Witham Town 0
Barking continued their unbeaten record with a 12-0 win over Witham Town. Barking dominated the first half and 15 minutes into the game Stacy Savage lobbed a shot against to win to start the scoring. Just 5 minutes later Stacy Savage tapped in for 2 at close range. Followed closely with a low cross from Savage to Jo McGuinness who fired into the far post. Savage scored her hat-trick a few minutes later when she chipped a ball over the goal keeper from a tight angle. Stacy Savage scored the 5th from a header after a deep right wing cross from Liane Prior and the 6th after being fed a lovely ball from Leanne Couch. Barking's goal keeper Sarah Ball was fortunate the weather was mild, a colder spell would have seen her freeze on the spot. Any chances made by Witham were quickly picked up by Sarah and sent straight back to the other end. After half time Barking came out slow but still managed to stay on top of the match. With the ball very rarely out of the Barking half many shots at goal went over or wide, the score should have been increased by at least five. Not disheartened Barking continued to hit the back of the net with Jo McGuinness scoring number 7 from close range and Savage made her double hat-trick to make the score 8. Jo McGuinness made her hat trick on the 9th goal from 12 yards and secured the 10th goal by running the ball under the goal keeper. Leanne Couch not to be outdone made the 11th goal from 20 yards. The final goal of the match came just before the whistle after Stacy Savage broke free and fired the ball home after a 1/1 with the goal keeper.

Barking Ladies 3 Gillingham 2

Barking returned to league action with a tough physical encounter against a Gillingham side still in danger of relegation. With overnight rain making the Barking FC unplayable the match was switched to the outside Mayesbrook Park pitch. Conditions were not conducive to a good game with driving rain and a swirling wind. Barking took the lead on 7 minutes when Lisa Brivati swung in a corner which deflected off Gillingham's keeper into own net. Gilligham equalized on 22 minutes when a low shot from outside the box deceived Michelle Bridgeman. Four minutes later Nicola Moore with a one on one with keeper saw her shot saved. Just two minutes from the end of the first half Kelly Stock made the score 2-1 when she run round the keeper and slotted the ball into an empty net. A very bitty second half saw Gillingham forced to play more direct to get themselves back in the game, however the Barking defence held firm and looked comfortable. In the 62nd minute Kelly Stock should have wrapped the game up, but though she held off a defender, rounded the keeper she could only find the side netting. The game burst into life in the 88 minute when Michelle Bridgeman made a hash of her clearance, and with the ball only going ten yards straight to a Gillingham forward who lobbed the ball home from 28 yards. Deep into injury time, Lisa Brivati was fouled outside the box, Brivati drove the kick in and Gillingham again deflected. Team: Michelle Bridgeman, Karen Staples, Donna Devitt, Vikki Staples, Harriet Sim, Leanne Couch, Hayley Unwin, Lisa Brivati, Lorna Estherby, Nicola Moore, Kelly Stock. Sub: Anna Filip

Witham Town 2 Barking Reserves 9

Barking clinched the league championship with a 9-2 victory at Witham. Playing against a strong wind Barking led 4-1 at half time through a Stacy Savage hat-trick. The other scored by Jo McGuiness. Barking dominated the second and scored further goals through a Kirsty McGrath double and a 20 yard left foot thunderbolt from Lianne Prior. Stacy Savage grabbed two further goals to complete the scoring. Barking Manager Steve Bernet said 'I am please with our performance although we missed a lot of chances to add more goals. It's good that we continue to create opportunities. The players themselves were overjoyed and looking forward to the final game and the celebrations that will follow'. Team: Sarah Ball, Jan Walsh, Haylee Bernet, Claire Brooks, Nicola Maggs, Julie Oli, Vanessa Doherty, Kirsty McGrath, Lianne Prior, Jo McGuinness, Stacy Savage.

Barking U12 1 Watford 5

Katie Whitehead opened the scoring just 10 minutes into the game. But Barking could find no more chances as Watford took hold of the game and equalized twenty minutes later. The second half saw Watford really take hold and just two minutes into the game increased their score to 2. Barking's heads began to drop when Watford made the score 3 followed shortly by 2 more to end the game 1-5. Team: Holly Clary, Victoria Moorton, Janine Bentham, Paris Jones, Kayleigh Debenham, Hayley Piggott, Katie Whitehead, Rosie Sweeny, Joy Dutch, April Patten, Shaynece Rawlings, Charlotte Russell, Danielle McAlister.

Barking u11 0 Enfield 3

With no league game scheduled, a friendly match was arranged and with both sides looking to use existing players and potential new players it was agreed to play 3 X 25 mins. The first third was a very even and tight affair, both sides failing to create any clear cut chances. The second third was edged by Enfield but the score remained 0-0 mainly due to some excellent goal keeping by Amy Vincent. The third and final 25 minutes saw Enfield blitz the home side with a 3 goal burst inside five minutes. Again Amy Vincent made some neat saves and Barking came close themselves through Demi Whitehead and Jodie Foster. Overall a good match and run out for both sides. Team: Amy Vincent, Megan Woolgrove, Vikki Eden, Abbie West, Holly Leader, Khaquila Rawlings, Demi Whitehead, Jodie Foster, Molly Patten, Karina Bamber, Ashely Burnett.

Barking Ladies

First team

Today's game was hard going for both sides as they had to contend with strong winds for all of the match. The first half was very evenly matched with both teams for the first 30 minutes having no real shots on goal. Barking had to make an early substitution when Haylee Bernet came on for injured Becky Garner. The first chance came for Barking on forty minutes when a free kick from Lisa Brivati landed, shot towards the box to be headed backwards by QPR's defender to the goal keeper who only just got her hands to the ball thanks to the wind. Just minutes later a fumble in the box saw a one-one-on with Nicola Moore and QPR's goalkeeper resulting in the 'keeper going down and the game held up to attend to her injury. Just before injury time a corner from QPR saw Michelle Bridgeman punch the ball away followed closely in injury time saw another punch away by Michelle just off the line. The second half started in severe rain and probable gale force winds which severely hindered the play. Hayley Unwin substituted for Lianne Prior. QPR had the advantage with the wind stopping the ball in mid air. Both teams battled hard to play football. QPR had the first corner of the second half, which landed nicely in the box for QPR forward to take a shot at goal which was bravely pushed away by Michelle Bridgeman only to land straight back in QPR's path to shoot again but Michelle got her fingers to the ball which landed at Hayley Bernet's feet who quickly kicked it away. Nicola Moore substituted for Stacy Savage. With the ball only moving yards in the wind QPR scored the first goal assisted by the wind. The second goal for QPR was 14 minutes later when a good cross into the box landed just right for QPR forward to slot it past Michelle. Barking hit back with minutes to spare when a free kick from Lisa Brivati found Kelly Stock who shot into the back of the net but was controversially called offside.

Barking Ladies - County Cup Final

Barking Ladies First Team, U12's and U13's match reports.

Essex FA County Cup Final

Barking Ladies 0 Dagenham & Redbridge 1
Baking failed to retain the County Cup following a below par performance against a team that deserved to win on the day. Barking started well and forced a possession of throws deep in the Dagenham half, but failed to turn these into clear cut changes and this set the pattern for the day. Some wicked in-swinging corners and a neat move involving Kelly Stock and Nicola Moore saw Barking go close, but fell behind on the half hour as Michelle Sherwin fired home a loose ball from 30 yards. The second half saw Dagenham and Redbridge go close to adding to their score but Michelle Bridgeman made several fine saves in the Barking goal to keep them in the game. As much as Barking huffed and puffed it wasn't going to be their day and they returned home as disappointed losers.
Michelle Bridgeman, Karen Staples, Donna Devitt, Harriet Sim, Vicki Staples, Leanne Couch, Becky Garner, Nicole Manning, Lisa Brivati, Kelly Stock, Nicola Moore. Subs: Hayley Unwin, Haylee Bernet, Sarah Ball, Liane Prior, Jo McGuinness.


Enfield 3 Barking U12's 1

Aimee Evans, Robyn Day, Millie Deveraux, Jodine Perishechino, Adele Ambrose, Cassie Roberts, Rosie Jacobs.


Luton Town 13 Barking U10 0
Barking didn't play as well today as they have done in the past. There was loads of room for improvement. 100 percent was not given and that reflected in the score. Fresh start after Easter.
Karla Joseph, Hayley Busby, Sian Polley, Megan Wood, Jemma Lord, Daisy Cook, Hannah Wild, Chloe Palmer.
