Barking Ladies match reports
WOMEN'S F.A.CUP FIRST ROUND
COLCHESTER UTD 2 BARKING LADIES 0
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.
ESSEX COUNTY WOMENS LEAGUE DIV 2
BARKING LADIES RES 3 SOUTHEND UTD RES 0
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.

UNDER 12 TEAM
HERTFORDSHIRE GIRLS LEAGUE BARKING LADIES 0 BELMONT UNITED 3
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.

HERTFORDSHIRE GIRLS LEAGUE BEDWELL RANGERS 0 BARKING LADIES B 4
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

HERTFORDSHIRE GIRLS LEAGUE BARKING LADIES 2 GARSTON PURPLES 0

the best start with two goals in the first three minutes when DAISY COOK, following good work from MEGAN
COOK came close to grabbing her hat trick on 15 mins with a great shot from outside the box, but the keeper
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.

Barking Ladies 1st Team 0 v Bedford Town Belles 1
Barking didn't deserve to lose this well matched game a draw should have at least been on the score sheet.

A further two attempts at the goal were cleared away by defenders and another try kicked over by Nicole Manning.

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.

ESSEX FA COUNTY CUP - 2nd ROUND - away
BARKING LADIES 3 SAFFRON WALDON 1Sunday 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'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.

Sunday 8th February 2004
South East Combination LeagueBarking 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
Barking 0 Denham United 1
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
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
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.

Hertfordshire Girls League Cup - Group StageBarking 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.

PIGGOTT. However the away side did take the lead on a break when they out powered and outpaced the home
defence on 24 minutes.

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.

Hervesters P-P Barking A
Hertfordshire Girls Group StageBarking 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.

The second goal was on 30 minutes when a brilliant corner from Liane Prior bent in and the keeper could only get a hand to it to help in into the back of the net. Barking continued their attack when a corner for Barking found Haylee Bernet's head but the ball hit the crossbar.
The second half saw Barking continue to lay pressure in the first 15 minutes but all shots on goal were well defended by Maldon. Despite their efforts Barking conceded two goals on the 65th and 70th minute.

Barking Ladies match reports.
First TeamMatch called off
Barking Ladies Reserves 12 Witham Town 0Barking 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

Luton's final goal was scored 4 minutes from time.

Barking Ladies 3 Gillingham 2Barking 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.

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 5Katie 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.

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 3With 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.

First teamToday'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.
