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.

Barking Ladies 2 v Denham United 1
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.

Denham hit back but Michelle Bridgeman saves well. 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.

The second half started well with both sides having shared time on the ball a close shave by Denham on 52 mins saw the shot beat Michelle Bridgeman but hit the post. 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. Nicola Carty has a shot at goal on the 90 minute but is too high and in injury time she lobs the ball of Denham keeper but it bobbles wide.

Chelmsford City Res 1 Barking Ladies Res 1
Chelmsford fail to halt Barking's unbeaten run despite using several of their first team players who were without a game this week. 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.

The second half saw Watford pull a goal back in the opening minutes.

Team: Aimee Evans, Grace Sale, Adele Ambrose, Robyn Day, Mille Devereux, Cassie Roberts, Rosie Jacob.

Barking Ladies


Played Wednesday 12th November - away - 7.45 KO A trip up the A12 for Barking proved fruitful as they drove back home with the 3 points safely in the bag.

Sunday 16th November This was definitely a game of two halves for Barking. The first half was fairly evenly matched with the ball playing a game on tennis for the first ten minutes. Barking had two shots - one near miss by Becky Garner and one going just over the bar by Lisa Brivati. On 12 minutes a mistake by the Barking defence saw Saffron's best player break free and hit the back of the net. Barking tried to hit back with a shot across the goal on 15 minutes by Becky Garner followed closely by Nicola Moore with a shot going wide. Barking's best chance to equalize came from Nicola Carty on 25 minutes when she chipped the keeper and the goal smacked the post. Good football on 28 mins saw the keeper save Becky Garners shot followed closely with her next shot go over the bar. In the last few minutes Nicola Carty beat defender only to see her shot saved once again. The second half saw Barking start a goal down, but a different team emerged from the changing rooms. Barking dominated the second half and after just 4 minutes Barking were level with a short range goal from Nicola Carty. 10 minutes into the game a free kick to Barking taken by Lisa Brivati went over the crossbar. With Barking keeper Sarah Ball getting cold Barking had numerous shots at goal but until the 25th minute none found the back of the net. Lisa Brivati's corner was too high for Nicole Manning to head but the ball landed at the feet of Nicola Carty who crossed to Becky Garner who brought the ball down and shot and scored from close range. Becky Garner increased the score on the 39th minute with Barking passing well and allowing Becky to break free and hit the net. With the final score 3-1 to Barking, they now look forward to the quarter finals.

Both halves produced excellent football with numerous shots from Demi Whitehead and Jodie Foster making the opposing goalkeeper work for 50 minutes. barking's keeper Amy Vincent had to leave the field with an ankle injury after a great performance, so Khaquila Rawlings after working hard in midfield took the role of keeper and did well.

Sunday 8th February 2004

First Team

South East Combination League
Barking 0 Denham United 1
Barking slumped to another defeat which sees them slip rather dangerously towards the relegation zone. Barking Manager had to do without regulars LORNA ESTHERBY and ANGE ROBINSON as well as STACY SAVAGE who was on holiday. Work commitments also meant KELLY STOCK would only arrive at the half time interval.

On a bone hard pitch and facing a strong win in their faces first half, Barking were pleased with their first half efforts. On 18 minutes Barking put together a fine move involving LISA BRIVATI, HAYLEY UNWIN and BECKI GARNER, the end result saw BRIVATI with some space in the box but her finish went wide of the far post.

On 21 minutes KAREN STAPLES broke clear but her shot was blocked, the ball fell to BECKI GARNER but her drive was saved by the Denham keeper.

Denham had created a few breaks, but never really troubled Barking keeper MICHELLE BRIDGEMAN yet on 33 minutes the wind prevented Barking clearing, they worked the ball from right to left and got in behind the Barking defence and slotted the ball over the on-rushing BRIDGEMAN to put the away side ahead.

The remainder of the first half saw Barking happy to pack players behind the ball, and keep Denham away from their goal in the hope they could turn the defecit around in the second period.

Barking did come out of the blocks early in the second half, NICOLE MANNING chested a ball down and toe-poked her finish just past the post, VICKI STAPLES picked up the ball in her own half and went on an amazing sixty yard run, pust five Denham players, with only the keeper left, she placed the ball to her right hand dive, only to see the ball scrape the post and wide.

Denham did try to play their football and BRIDGEMAN had to be alert to make a smart save down to her right on 65 minutes.

However Denham were forced to defend in numbers at time and again KELLY STOCK was denied by a goal-line clearance after poking the ball under the Denham keeper, BECKI GARNER had a shot well saved, MANNING went close with a header.

As much as Barking huffed and puffed it looked like it wasn't going to be their day and that was how it turned out as Denham held out to take the points. Barking were guilty of not taking their chances but cannot be faulted for the effort they put in.

TEAM : Michelle Bridgeman, Kirsty McGrath, Vicki Staples, Harriet Sim, Donna Devitt, Hayley Unwin, Karen Staples, Lisa Brivati, Nicole Manning, Nicola Moore, Becki Garner Subs: Kelly Stock

Hertfordshire Girls League Cup - Group Stage
Barking 0 Tottenham Hotspur 5
Barking had already found Tottenham a difficult side to beat this season in friendlies and League matches as they possess a much bigger and more physical side. However Barking performed well in the first period and came close with strikes from ROSIE SWEENY and HAYLEY PIGGOTT. However the away side did take the lead on a break when they out powered and outpaced the home defence on 24 minutes. The second half saw Tottenham have the wind behind them and after an hour's play they took the game over as Barking started to tire having given everything up that point. Some fortunate deflections helped Tottenham but the goals rattled in during the last ten minutes and Tottenham took the points.

Barking got home in this group match but had a very tough game against a resilant St Albans team. Barking took the lead three minutes before half time when GRACE SALE fired home from close range after a solo twenty yard run. Three minutes into the second half SALE grabbed her second with a neat finish from close range. However to say it was comfortable would be unfair to St Albans who had several efforts either blocked by good defending or saved by keeper MILLIE DEVEREUX.

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. Team: Sarah Ball, Nicola Maggs, Haylee Bernet, Claire Brookes, Maddie Zucker, Brooke Herbert, Leanne Couch, Stacy Savage, Jo McGuinness, Liane Prior Subs: Vanessa Doherty, Jemma Barham, Julie Oli

Luton's final goal was scored 4 minutes from time. Team: Holly Clary, Jayne Bentham, Paris Jones, Emma King, Katie Whitehead, Shaynece Rawlings, Alex Small, Victoria Moorton, April Patten, Rosie Sweeney, Hayley Piggott.

Barking Ladies

First Team, Reserves, U12's and U11's match reports.

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.
