Peterborough United Ladies


Saturday, 7 February 2004 Kingsthorpe Pumas 5-0 Peterborough United LFC
Posh took on undefeated Pumas in the quarter final of the cup at Bushfield today. United were expecting a tough game and it proved to be one. The first half set the pattern for the game with Pumas, attacking brightly from the start. Posh defended bravely but Pumas pace and movement off the ball caused big problems for United. Despite the pressure Posh coped well until a mix up in defence was pounced upon by Pumas for the first goal. The score remained that way until the break. After the break Posh were caught out by the Pumas attack 3 times in quick succession. With Pumas now 4 up things became tough for Posh but they continued to battle well. A superb double save by keeper Kloe Bennett seemed to spur Boro on to better team play and they created some scoring chances but could not finish them. Pumas added a fifth late in the game to finish 5-0 winners. Manager Greg Tilley said, “Pumas are the best team we’ve played this season and this was a much better performance than our last game against them. We didn’t deserve to lose 5-0. The girls worked extremely hard giving 100% effort. I couldn’t ask more than that. Next match is scheduled for Feb 14th verses Sunnyside at Bushfield kick off 10.30. 1 Kloe Bennett 2 Emily Walker 3 Paige Moore 4 Shay Stanford 5 Eilis Carr 6 Zoe Watkins (C) 7 Emma Orgar 8 Olivia Slater 9 Jessica Warwick 10 Laura Bigginton


Saturday, 7 February 2004 Peterborough United LFC 1 – 0 Rushden Rangers League Cup
A brilliant performance from a motivated team. With a goal from Laura Rudd in the first half of extra time. After the match the team were allowed to celebrate in front of 5,400 spectators at London Road. They took part in the first Ladies Day at Posh, with a demonstration of skills in half time.


Saturday, 7 February 2004 Ise Lodge 0–3 Peterborough United LFC League Cup
Peterborough United Ladies U15's came home the victors with a 3-0 win, in a quarter final cup clash against league holders Ise lodge on Saturday. Peterborough striker Julie Ikeda chalked up two more goals to her tally making it twenty for the season so far. The first was assisted by a splendid midfield effort from Kelly Thomas, who never stopped battling for the ball through out the game. The second a 40 yard free kick delivered by Samara Iredale to Julie just inside the area, who controlled it first time and launched it high into the net. Ise Lodge had three good shots on target themselves in the first half but failed due to some safe goal keeping from Lauren Bettyes. The final goal for Peterborough was an Ashley Palmer header from a cross, delivered by a Kelly Thomas in the dying minutes of injury time before the break. At the start of the second half Ise lodge came out with a formation change with three attacking players. They fought back, getting a few shots wide of the target, and managed to rattle the woodwork twice in one attempt. The Peterborough defence and sweeper Nicola Holliday held their ground and kept Ise Lodge from scoring throughout the rest off the game. Every team member played a terrific game and gave a 110% getting the result they set out to achieve from the start. Managers Gareth Thomas and Geoff Palmer awarded the whole team for players of the match for their incredible performance. But, the team nominated Nicola Holliday, as their star player of the week. Posh Team: Ashley Palmer, Alison Hills, Frankie Kelly, Kelly Thomas, Samara Iredale, Nicola Holliday, Lauren Bettyes, Stephanie Pepper, Charlotte Clark, Megan Bonner, Julie Ikeda, Amy Rickards, Louise Wright, Lauren Costello. Goal Scorers Julie Ikeda 2, Ashley Palmer 1. Player of the match: Nicola Holliday

Sunday, 8 February 2004 Peterborough United LFC 4–1 Belper Town
On Sunday, Posh entertained Belper Town at home. Nothing less than 3 points were needed to continue the push for promotion. In an afternoon where we had every condition to deal with: snow, rain and most of all the blustery wind, things weren’t conducive to the great football we can now expect of our Ladies, however job well done. Posh took advantage of the wind in the 1st half and soon realised this Belper side were much stronger than the one Posh had beaten 10-1 away from home however after 5 minutes Posh got into their stride and began to attack putting pressure on the Belper defence, attacking especially well down the right-hand side with winger Roxanne Copping, linking well with her very competent fullback Stacy Gross. After 15 minutes a resultant corner was swung in by Lisa White and met at the back post from Posh striker Vicky Lines who headed back to the far post and left the keeper with no chance a 1st class header! Slightly concerning was that Posh allowed Belper back into the game almost immediately, they were awarded a free kick down their right side and with unnatural hesitancy in the air, Belper Town had their equaliser with another quality header. This was however the only real time Belper got into the Posh half for the entire game and soon Posh were back on top. After 30 minutes the Peterborough United Ladies deservedly took the lead again. Using the wind to bend a whipping cross in from the corner flag Lisa White found the net without it needing another touch. Three minutes later it was 3-1 a well worked piece of football through the strong midfield marshalled by Chrissy Whaley created Vicky Larham some space on the left wing the ball was switched by Chrissy and with just two touches Vicky Larham got off an unstoppable left foot drive into the far corner of the net. Our fourth and surprisingly last goal of the afternoon came on the stroke of half time a good header won in midfield by Lisa White broke and left Vicky Lines one on one with the last defender and with her great pace and strength she managed to get in front of her marker and she calmly chipped the onrushing keeper another stylish finish by an exciting talented striker. After the break normal service resumed Posh keeping possession of the ball and with the cushion of 3 goals some better patterns of play emerged we just lacked the final killer ball. Belper got numbers back in defence and saved some pride often marking our strikers with 3 of their ladies. Posh could lay claim to two penalties in the half though on the 10th minute Vicky Lines seemed to be brought down in the area as did Nicola Kuch 10 minutes later. Other highlights were a great thunderous drive by Lisa White that hit the bar and an excellent Nicola Kuch header again onto the bar after a good cross from the right. Apart from these moments Posh found it hard against the wind and a very tight defence with so many players behind the ball. As usual it must be noted that the back four looked a hard obstacle to beat: Caroline Woods, Carly Tickner, Zoe Geldhart and Stacy Gross formed the big white wall! After the game manager Pete Hall and assistant Demos Harris said “Not our best performance of the season but under the conditions not a disastrous one either. We got our 3 points against a Belper side who put bodies in front of their goal. It would have been nice to get a few more goals, as we deserved them. We are looking forward to next week when we are visited by Sheffield United a good side and tough to beat so we will iron out a few problems in training and get at them like we know we can.” Sheffield United February 15th at Bushfield Sports Centre. Hope to see as many of you down cheering the Peterborough United Ladies on.
