Basildon United knocked out on penalties

Haringey Borough LFC 5 (1) Basildon United LFC 1 (1)
F A Cup 1st round qualifying
Coles Park, White Hart Lane, Tottenham.
Sunday 7 September 2003.

Basildon Ladies came home from their opening competitive game of the season with only a worrying injury list and a rare yellow card, despite being a goal up after 14-minutes.

The entire opening stages belonged to the home side, which made light work of the disappointing pitch with severe divots and which resembled a dust bowl. Basildon required time to settle, having started with a new defensive formation of wingbacks and sweeper. However, it was right wingback, Sonia Gower, who turned the tables with a strong forward foray. She won a throw-in and quickly threw it into striker Anna Winfield, who calmly set-up midfielder Kat Hodgson on the outside edge of the goal area. Hodgson’s shot over the home keeper into the far side netting proved to be the goal of the game.

It was a more even contest then; although Bees keeper Pauline Logan was almost immediately called on to make the first of three wonder saves, which just edged her as player of the game over Gower and Captain Helen Lake. The lead was held for just 20-minutes, when a suspiciously offside looking striker found herself unmarked at the far post. This was a bitter-pill as the Bees had held resolutely for the previous 12-minutes with ten players when ankle victim Justine Leach was receiving treatment.

With the loss of young sweeper Gemma Dixey with a suspected hamstring tear and Winfield unlucky not to score from a lobbed effort, the Bees were a little unfortunate to go in 1-1 at half-time.

Whilst the second half began evenly, the Bees strikers lacked support and had to come in search of the ball. One such incident lead to the home side taking the lead in the 63rd minute. Striker Winfield was crawly penalised for a foot up, when taking and controlling a ball on her thigh. There was no excuse, though, for the Bees square defence waiting for the free kick to be taken from the correct spot and allowing the home attack to run unfettered on goal.

This, rather than add fire to Basildon hearts, had a deflationary effect with keeper Logan’s second wonder save keeping them in the game. She was powerless to stop the third goal, though. It came from a superb deep corner kick, being nodded in at the far post.

3-1 down, the Bees elected to go down fighting by throwing players forward and were punished with two breakaway goals on 82 and 89 minutes, either side of Logan’s best, finger tip, save, and booking of debutant Candice Eyre. Winfield was again unlucky to have added a little respectability to the score line after being set up by substitute Toni Harvey – with the home keeper saving at full stretch.

Disappointed team manager, Bob Gower hoped that on another day some 50/50 decisions would go Basildon’s way, including the booking for a first offence, “the untidy clash did stop an attack, but the entire game was played in an absolute perfect spirit, and it seemed a rather futile booking so late in the game”, he commented. The Basildon management now have a week to agonise over who will be fit for next Sunday’s opening League game against Brentwood Town, which has now been switched to Brentwood (due to The Stadium, Basildon being required for a cup game).

Basildon: Lisa Ballard, Lana Bond, Gemma Dixey, Candice Eyre, Sonia Gower, Toni Harvey, Liz Hendle, Kat Hodgson, Helen Lake (Captain), Crystal Lane, Justine Leach, Pauline Logan, Lauren Payne, Mel Perry, Emma Sloman, Anna Winfield.

Next fixture: Brentwood Town LFC 2pm Sunday 14 September 2003, at Brentwood International Centre.

Basildon Ladies have changed their training evenings to Thursdays at 7.30pm, Gloucester Park all-weather pitch.

U's Look for Divine Intervention

It has been a week of consolidation in the ladies camp as they prepare for the visit of Gillingham Ladies FC at home on Sunday. The ladies are yet to turn their season around and despite the poor run of results, the team is not disheartened with the strong belief that the first points are just around the corner. Meanwhile, the reserves are the only side to travel this weekend as they head off to Basildon Utd on Sunday while the Centre of Excellence teams stay at home to visiting Millwall this Saturday. It's a football festival as this Sunday as all of the girls teams have home fixtures to provide a full day of football entertainment at Clairmont Road. The Senior First Team It's no fun being at the bottom of the league but the ladies turned their season around last year to finish in fourth place despite being deducted four points. They intend to do the same again this season, starting this Sunday. The Gillingham fixture has always been an exciting game with the U's firing home 9 goals to Gillinghams 5 last season, and on the return game at Layer Road, the ladies ran out respectable 3-1 winners. The Gills season has also got off to a rocky start with them losing five out of six games, but they got back to winning ways last weekend in a storming 3-1 victory against Barking. With a midweek fixture against West Ham on Wednesday, Sunday will see the Gills playing their third game in 7 days, which could be to Colchester's advantage. The Gills are still in 11th place and have just as much work as the U's to do to lift themselves away from the relegation zone. The ladies need to prove their worth this Sunday and register their interest in staying in this division, Debbie Aylward was in church on Tuesday praying for points (so we are told) and nothing more than a win this Sunday will be satisfactory. As usual, Wivenhoe Town FC have excellent facilities with hot and cold refreshments on sale throughout the game, covered stands and a lovely clubhouse all make your football experience an enjoyable one.... ENTRANCE IS FREE so get down and support the ladies, we want to hear you cheer.

Did Christmas arrive early for Harlow?

Essex County Women’s Football League, Division 1 Sunday 12 October 2003 The Stadium, Gardiner’s Close, Basildon. Basildon United LFC (0) 1 A Winfield 75-minutes Harlow Town LFC (2) 3 L Hendle own goal 9-minutes, S Ferguson 38-minutes, G Dixey own goal 51-minutes. Basildon United Ladies netted three times and lost by three goals to one this Sunday! Their visitors – sporting only ten players – must have thought Christmas had arrived early! Harlow clearly came to spoil and consolidate and rely on counter attack. The match statistics do not quite reflect the ebb and flow of a game almost entirely dominated by the Bees. What the facts do show, however, are that the lack of attempts on target, two yellow cards and two own goals, the game had plenty of action but lacked finesse. Anna Winfield, despite netting well in the second half from a Sonia Gower free-kick, was particularly unfortunate in front of visiting goal-keeper and wood work. As well as hitting a post Winfield was cruelly scythed down by an uncompromising defender, who in spite of being the last defender was only booked for the offence. For all the guile and prompting of Amanda Kirrage and Liz Hendle the Bees really do still need to go back to shooting school, after a record number of wide, high, and shots straight at the keeper. With time ticking away and an ever desperate mean Harlow defence, Bees skipper Helen Lake was booked for over remonstration of the clattering of player of the game Lana Bond. But with no time added on, the Bees ran out of time. On a more positive note the Bees welcomed back from injury as late substitutes Crystal Lane and Sue Fisher. Also, the cruciate ligament scare of Kat Hodgson does not now look as serious, with only an internal strain masked by nerve and fibre damage to the kneecap, and thigh muscle strain. Basildon United’s squad: L Ballard, L Bond, T Denham, G Dixey, C Eyre, S Fisher, S Gower, L Hendle, A Kirrage, H Lake (Captain), C Lane, P Logan, M Perry, D Shelley, E Sloman, and A Winfield. Next fixture details: Essex County Women’s Football League Div I at Saffron Walden LFC, Catons Lane, Saffron Walden. K.O. 2pm

Stifford Clays LFC v Basildon United LFC

Essex County Women's Football League, Division I

Basildon United Ladies dreadful start to the season continued with a first half mauling from previously pointless Stifford Clays. The home side used the small pitch and windy conditions to great effect by dominating the central areas and surging forward in numbers.

Stifford were in command as early as the third minute and doubled the lead on eight minutes. It seemed they would score every time they surged forward, showing their visitors the value of a "shoot-on-sight" policy. But with the Bees inept efforts to clear the bombardment of long-balls they inevitably fell further behind in the twelfth and twenty-sixth minutes.

If the Bees were to take anything positive from this contest, it would be their second-half performance, which was in stark contrast to the first. But home keeper Lynsey Patch stood resolute to the Bees second half dominance.

It wasn't until the Bees gambled by sacrificing a defender for a forward that a break-through was forthcoming. Even then it wasn't until the 76-minute that any tangible reward came, with Tina Denham well placed to pounce on another parried shot, at the far post.

Basildon United's squad: L Ballard, L Bond, T Denham, G Dixey, C Eyre (Bees player of the game), S Fisher, S Gower, L Hendle, A Kirrage, H Lake (Captain), C Lane, J Leach, P Logan, M Perry, D Shelley, E Sloman, and A Winfield.

The Ladies train every Thursday at the all weather pitch, Gloucester Park at 7.45, and (from 4 November 2003) every Tuesday evening at the William de Ferrers Centre, South Woodham Ferrers.

Chelmsford City Ladies

First Team

Essex County Womens League
League Cup 2nd Round
Chelmsford City 7 Basildon United 0

Chelmsford were looking to continue their excellent display from last week and completely dominated the opening 45 mins, forcing the visitors to defend for long periods. Despite City's constant pressure they only had a solitary Kerri Binks goal to show for their efforts at half time, mainly due to the woodwork and the Basildon keeper pulling off a number of excellent saves.

However, the second half saw City's excellent work-rate and clinical finishing result in them netting a further six times. Paula Drane scored the second, calmly sliding the ball past the keeper before Emma Wells grabbed a third following a strong run down the right culminating in her bending a right foot shot into the top corner.

Shirley Cole scored the 4th following good work from Lucy Garrett and Emma Ridings, the latter providing the perfect chip over the defence. Drane netted her second with a trademark corner, Sharon Brownlie causing confusion at the near post with the ball flying straight in before Brownlie herself grabbed goal no 6, a power-driver from the edge of the box into the bottom corner.

Ridings rounded off the scoring with a deserved seventh, powering a unstoppable header from a corner into the top right hand corner of the net to round off a pleasing performance for the management.

Chelmsford City: Waters, Marshall, Thompson, Harman (Ridings), Bell, Wells, Brownlie, Cole, Drane, Garrett and Binks. Unused sub: Smith.


League Cup 2nd Round
Chelmsford City Reserves 3 Colchester United Reserves 0

High flying Division Two side, caused the cup upset of the round with a superb victory on Sunday over their Division One opponents.

There was nothing to choose between the sides until midway through the first half when City were awarded a free kick on the edge of the Colchester area and Helen Alder struck a beautifully flighted effort over the wall into the corner of the net.

The remainder of the half saw Colchester press hard but City's defence, in which Hannah Lackenby and Dawn Barnard were prominent, held firm.

After the break, City started well with strikers Alder and Angela McPhee posing a constant threat up front while Rachel Brett and Anna Cornish worked tireless in midfield.

A second City goal arrived just after the hour mark with a typical strike from McPhee who outpaced the U's defence before coolly slotting the ball past the keeper. This was followed quickly by Alder's second goal to make the game safe and ease any worries of Colchester getting back into the game.

Chelmsford continued to create chances up to the final whistle, notably Dawn Barnard forcing a good save from the U's keeper and Alder nearly completing her hat-trick with a spectacular overhead kick. City were good value for their victory, having played their best football of the season so far.

Chelmsford City: Smith, Threadgold, Roberts, Brett, Barnard, Vernon (Groom), Alder, Lackenby, G. McPhee, Cornish and A. McPhee. Unused subs: Cornell, Wheeler and Ruck.


Essex County Girls League
Under 14 North Division
Colchester United FitC 1 Chelmsford City 3

Chelmsford City continued their fine form in the league, and made the away game at Colchester their fourth consecutive victory. Rachel Armstrong netted an early goal for Chelmsford, but United fought back with an equaliser close to half time, making it 1-1 at the break.

The second half saw Ashleigh Harding immediately giving City the lead once more, with a well-taken shot, lowering Colchester's confidence considerably. The City attack continued to push forward, with the defence staying back in a disciplined fashion, allowing Ashleigh Harding to secure the win for City with a last-minute goal.

The real star of the show was City's stand-in goalkeeper, Shannon Clarke, who deservedly picked up the player of the match award for her team, with an outstandingly committed performance.


Under 12 North Division
Chelmsford City 4 Rayne Cygnets 0

On a bitterly cold day City knew they were probably going to have a tough game on their hands. At least half of the squad were sick or injured and Rayne were in no mood to allow City an easy ride. Both sides battled hard with City having a few early chances, but producing nothing to trouble the Rayne keeper much. It was over twenty minutes into the match before City broke the deadlock. A goal mouth scramble from a City corner saw their usual keeper, Gabrielle Gunn put the ball into the Rayne net.

The match then continued with little opportunity until fifteen minutes into the second half when Rayne broke through the City defense but shot straight at the keeper in a one on one.

City managed to score three goals in the last ten minutes with Alice MacInnes netting City's second with a deflected shot. Rosie Gliddon then scored an excellent effort across the box followed by Hannah Kinsella who scored with a well struck shot from outside the box. Although they ran out 4-0 winners, defenders Calia Catchpole, Jess Casey and Tara Britton all had excellent games and were responsible for keeping the Rayne attacks at bay.

Chelmsford City: Hannah Kinsella, Alice MacInnes, Chloe Argent, Rosie Gliddon, Leanne Patten, Gabrielle Gunn, Celia Catchpole, Jessie Casey and Tara Britton.

First points of year for Billericay

Billericay Town Ladies 4 - Basildon United Ladies 2

Billericay Town Ladies played their first Essex County League Division 1 match of 2004 on Sunday at New Lodge and started the year with a 4–2 win.

Billericay started very slowly. Playing only 2 games in 6 weeks proved difficult for Town to get back into their stride and Basildon took full advantage of this quickly putting the home teams defence under pressure. Basildon won a free kick on the edge of the Billericay penalty area 10 minutes into the game and the resulting shot somehow went into the goal to give the visitors the lead after a mix up in the Billericay defence. Julie Willis in goal for the home team, had a excellent first half for Billericay and showed her fine ability with a fine finger tipped save that pushed a 25 yard Basildon shot round the post for a corner.

Ten minutes later Billericay conceded another goal after some fine work through the Basildon team. Basildon’s second goal seemed to them bring Billericay back to life after a rusty start. Maria Boyce and Lisa Robins began to create some good chances on the wings for Kirsty Thain and Wendy Palmer upfront, but Billericay where denied by the Basildon keeper on several occasions. Palmer took some excellent corners for the home team which swung across the face of the Basildon goal, but somehow the attacking midfield could not get on the end of the ball. Billericay managed to pull a goal back before half time with good work from Robins who created an opening for Wendy Nicholls to run unchallenged on goal and place a left footed shot into the corner of the Basildon goal.

Billericay came out for the start of the second half with more conviction and totally dominated the rest the game. Palmer managed to get on the score sheet 10 minutes into the second half when she received a telling pass from midfield and ran towards goal, side-stepped the goalkeeper and placed the ball into an empty net.

Linda Wiltsher, had an excellent second half, and made some timely tackles in defence in the absence of Billericay’s regular left back Claire Martin, who was ill. Wiltsher scored a fantastic solo goal midway through the second half when she picked up a pass half way into the Basildon half and skilfully went through the away teams midfield and defence to place a low shot under the keeper to give Billericay the lead. Boyce managed to get on the score sheet late into the game when she picked up the ball on the edge of the Basildon area and sent a 25 yard shot over the keepers head to give the home team a 4 – 2 final result.

Billericay will have a much tougher game next week and will need to pick up on their performance when they have a home game at New Lodge against table toppers White Notley in an Essex County league match. Kick off time 2.00pm.

Team: Willis, Rodd, Lee (Pye), Wiltsher, Robinson, Sykes, Boyce, Robins (Barabash), Nicholls, Thain (Shepherd), Palmer.

Billericay loose out in final minutes

Essex County League Division 1
Billericay Town Ladies lost 2 – 1 away to Colchester Ladies in the Essex County League Division 1 match on Sunday. Having had a three week break, due to an unplayable pitch and cancelled fixtures, Billericay were always going to find it hard competing against Colchester especially as they gave a run out to numerous players from their first team who play in the much higher South East Combination league.

Billericay were rocked in the first two minutes when Linda Wiltshire, starting at left back, had to go off with an injured thigh. Elaine Sykes replaced Wiltsher, but Billericay did not really get time to re-adjust prior to Colchester scoring a quick goal on the break down the left. After conceding the early goal, Billericay had no option but to change their formation to combat the quickness of the front players of Colchester. Billericay were under a lot of pressure in defence in the first half and the physical presence of Colchester took its toll, with a few players picking up injuries from the heavy challenges.

Jackie Lee had a good effort on goal halfway through the first half from a free kick which she one when she was knocked to the floor. The Colchester player was booked as this was her second similar challenge. Although the Billericay defence held firm for the remainder of the first half, the midfield and forward players were unable to create an opening for the visitors.

In the second half Billericay started to create a few openings through Maria Boyce and Lisa Robins wide in midfield but the forward line could not finish. Kimberley Pye came on as substitute in the 55 minute to replace Kirsty Thain. Pye made an immediate impact on the game, with her speed and quick thinking. It was Pye who created Billericay’s goal, as she picked up the ball deep in the Billericay half, ran forward past two or three players and split the Colchester defence with a telling pass to Boyce. Boyce controlled the pass well and calmly chipped the ball over the advancing keeper’s head.

On the second half performance, Billericay deserved a point however with only minutes’ remaining a deep ball was played into the Billericay penalty area for an unmarked forward to hit home from close range. Billericay went down to 10 players in the final stages when Wendy Nicholls was hacked to the ground and unable to continue. The Colchester player saw her marching orders for the horrific challenge.

Billericay have another away game next weekend, Sunday 22 February, when they visit Basildon United away in the Essex County Division 1 league match. Kick off time 2.00pm.

Team: Willis, Rodd, Lee, Wiltsher (Sykes), Robinson, Lee, Boyce, Robins, Nicholls, Thain (Pye), Palmer

Robins hat-trick secures win for Town

Billericay Town Ladies had a convincing 5–0 away win on Sunday at Basildon United FC in a Division 1, Essex County League match.

Basildon started the game well playing some good football and gave the Billericay defence of Jane Shepherd, Tracy Rodd and Jackie Lee a few early problems with their speed up front. Billericay were very lucky 10 minutes into the game when a Basildon forward ran onto a ball and calming shot the ball in the back of the net. The goal was disallowed for offside. It took about 20 minutes for the visitors to create their first chance, when Wendy Palmer, playing up front put a fine cross into the Basildon penalty area, but unfortunately Cheron Robinson headed just over the bar. The Basildon keeper had a good game and kept her team in the game in the first half with many good saves from Palmer and Robins.

Billericay stepped up the pace at half time with Kimberly Pye replacing Kirsty Thain in midfield. Billericay created many changes through Robins, who had switched position in the second half from midfield to forward. Natalie Paul, Maria Boyce and Elaine Sykes all caused problems for Basildon through skill, speed and solid tackling.

It was Boyce who created the first goal for Billericay when she won the ball on the right, played a excellent cross into the penalty area, where Robins was unmarked on the back post to hit home from close range. Billericay could of gone 2–0 up minutes later when Robins put a corner into the area where Paul connected with an excellent strike, only for the keeper to push the ball over the crossbar. Billericay’s second goal did come from a corner, which Palmer sweeped into the penalty area, only for a Basildon defender to head the ball into her own net. Billericay’s third goal was the best of the match and was scored in the 62nd minute. Lee played an excellent looping pass over the Basildon defence for Robins to run onto and calmly chip the ball over the advancing keeper’s head.

Boyce was replaced through injury in the 65th minute and Fleur Barabash came on for her first game of the year. Robins scored her hat-trick minutes later when Paul broke free on the right and put a pass across the face of the Basildon goal where Robins managed to squeeze the ball into the back of the net from a tight angle. With 5 minutes remaining Billericay still managed to have time to score again, when Paul and Robins took a short corner, and Robinson found herself unmarked in the penalty area to head home from close range.
Next match
Billericay do not have a match next week, Sunday 29 February. Their next scheduled game is on Sunday 7th March.
Team: Willis, Rodd, Lee, Shepherd, Robinson, Sykes, Boyce (Barabash), Robins, Paul, Thain (Pye), Palmer.

Chelmsford City

Match reports for Chelmsford City teams.

First Team

Essex County Womens League Division One Basildon United 4-9 Chelmsford City
Chelmsford took an early lead through a well worked opening by Emma Ridings who unselfishly laid off the ball for Paula Drane to open the scoring with her 400th First Team goal in City colours. Within minutes Basildon found themselves level through some very sloppy defending by Chelmsford. City went ahead again when Paula Drane latched onto a long ball played by Kerry Binks and slotted it past the oncoming keeper but once again, within minutes, Basildon were level through more bad defending by Chelmsford. Chelmsford then picked up the pace and forced a corner which resulted in Paula Drane volleying the ball sweetly in to the back of the net to give City the lead. A sustained bout of pressure by Chelmsford resulted in two own goals from Basildon. After only 25 minutes played and seven goals scored, it was obvious this was going to be a very open game. This was shown when Basildon worked a good opening for their striker to score an unstoppable goal from the edge of the eighteen yard area. However this did not deter City who battled on and produced a well taken goal by Paula Drane to finish the first half leading 6-3. The second half started well for Basildon with the award of a penalty kick for a reckless challenge but fortunately for City, the Basildon player saw her penalty sail over the bar but minutes later Basildon were gifted a goal by an error from the City keeper. Two further goals for City, scored by Shirley Cole and Sharon Brownlie, put the game beyond Basildon. Chelmsford did however finish the game as they started, with a great piece of individual skill by Emma Ridings who rounded two players before slotting the ball past the Basildon keeper for the ninth and final goal of the game. This Sunday, Chelmsford entertain East Thurrock Utd at Barnston FC, High Easter Road, Barnston kick off 2pm.


Division Two Harlow Frontiers 0-6 Chelmsford City Reserves
City’s second team returned to winning ways on Sunday, defeating an improving Harlow side whose early determination resulted in a goalless opening half hour. City were unable to settle but eventually top scorer, Angela McPhee broke the deadlock with two further goals from her hard working co-striker, Helen Alder gave City the cushion they needed to make three half time substitutions. The second half was almost entirely City pressurising with Emma Roberts continuing to cause problems on the right flank and debutant Shelley Haslam impressively linking defence and attack. It was these two players who added a goal apiece as City threatened to run riot. However, Harlow continued to battle and forced a diving fingertip save from City’s keeper, Ruth Smith before popular captain, Rachel Brett rounded off the scoring with a long range effort. After several intense matches it was nice to see City once again playing uninhibited football and looking like they were enjoying themselves.


Friendly Chelmsford City U14’s 2 Chelmsford City U12’s 2
A close encounter between two talented Chelmsford teams saw some friendly rivalry, and an eventual two goal draw. Quality end-to-end football was played to begin with, but both goalkeepers refused to be beaten. Both City sides had many chances before an U12 player was brought down in the area, resulting in a penalty for the younger team. However, the spot-kick was weak, and Amber Thomson had no trouble with the save. The first half continued in much the same way, and despite another penalty for the U12 side, it ended goal less. But after the half-time interval, both teams seemed more fired-up and determined, which resulted in some impressive football from both Chelmsford sides. It was, however, the U14’s who opened the scoring, Emma Sharpe beating the keeper with a simple right-footer. However, the younger City team fought back, equalising with a controversial goal, but nevertheless, the goal stood. The U12’s team now had reams of confidence, and with the U14’s lacking this, the younger side were allowed to take the lead. But the older players were determined not to be beaten, and in the last few minutes of play their determination paid off with a goal from Ashleigh Harding.
