Redhill Ladies v AEI Gravesend

AEI Gravesend Ladies Football Club working in partnership with Gravesend and Northfleet F.C. AEI Gravesend Ladies football club travelled away to Redhill Ladies on Sunday for their South East Counties Premier league match. With both teams yet to win out of the two games in the opening league campaign, it was a vital game to put some points on the table and to kick-start the winning teams season. Both teams knew the game would be tough, but it was felt that Redhill were expecting to win as AEI Gravesend were the newly promoted side and they were the experienced Premier League side finishing in the top half of the table last season. The game started brightly with AEI applying the early pressure and working hard to prevent Redhill from settling into any rhythm, as they are known as a side that likes to play at a fast tempo and passing football. The game in the first half produced a strong battle in midfield for possession, some stout defending from AEI and some fantastic individual saves from goalkeeper Tania Laws to keep the score 0-0 at half time.
AEI Gravesend went in at half time disappointed at not creating enough scoring or attacking opportunities as a team but pleased that they had battled enough as a team to keep themselves in the game. The second half saw an improved AEI performance, after a stern half time talk from Manager Mark Hutchins to remind the ladies team that they were more than capable of winning this game if they all picked up their individual performances to increase team opportunities. AEI produced a second half team performance for the whole squad to be proud of, raising their game a level and competing for every ball and producing better passing and attacking football. Jade Mcdermott in particular was having an outstanding game up front and with the improved team play started to receive the ball in more attacking areas and was able to run at the defence to cause problems and shooting chances for the team. It was the running of striker Jade McDermott that created 2 goals for Rhea Mackennon midway through the second half, who finished superbly infront of the Redhill keeper after the ball played by Jade put her clear through on goal twice. With the game at 2-0 AEI Gravesend became more confident and quite comfortably dominated the final part of the game to finish with a 2-0 victory and 3 points on the table, which sees them, move to 7th place in the league. Manager Mark Hutchins commented "Another hard fought win that wasn't pretty but it’s when we can get results with a workmanlike performance that will make the difference between a poor season and a good season. The first half was a bit of a nightmare for us as for a 30min spell we came under immense pressure. Hopefully the half time talk sorted a few things out as we came out with a much more positive attitude and started to get more on top in the game." AEI Gravesend’s next game will be played at home 2.00p.m. kick off, AEI sports and social club Kings Farm, against Wandgas Ladies FC in the first round of the League Cup.

AEI GRAVESEND v Redhill Ladies

AEI Gravesend Ladies played tough opponents Redhill Ladies yesterday in a crucial league fixture, with both teams equal on league points, the win was vital to continue AEI’s progression up the league table. AEI Gravesend played away to Redhill earlier in the season and narrowly won 2-0 in an evenly contested game, so expected the home game to be a difficult match to win. The game started as expected with both team fiercely but fairly contesting for every ball and to gain an early command on the run of the game, resulting in an open end to end match with both teams creating opportunities. Neither team shone out in the first half, due to the hard work of both teams to prevent each other playing, the play was scrappy and direct at times, and flowed from end to end with no clear cut chances. It was some late AEI Gravesend pressure that created the opening goal in the first half, after receiving a corner kick. Lorraine Grinyer directed the corner into the front post area, where the persistence of Rebecca Pattenden paid off as she challenged the keeper for the ball creating an opportunity to knock the ball into the net at her second attempt, giving the right back her first goal of this season. An under par AEI Gravesend team were pleased to go in at half time with the lead and took the opportunity to regroup and speak about getting more on top of the game, by getting back to the passing game that they usually play, the manager Valter Antunes altered the team formation in order to create more attacking play and scoring opportunities.
Half time
AEI Gravesend started off much more brightly in the second half, and started to apply more and more pressure to the Redhill goal, realising that 1-0 wouldn’t be enough at this stage with Redhill applying equal pressure to get back into the game, the team pushed forward. Finally the pressure and hard work started to pay off with AEI playing much better football and they started to influence the game, dominating in midfield and defending convincingly. It was striker Claire Williams who scored next, latching onto a through ball from midfield, she rounded the oncoming keeper and slotted home with ease. The teams confidence grew and with the cushion of a 2-0 lead AEI ladies seemed to relax which led to much improved play, and it was while they were keeping possession to see the end of the game out, the next goal came. The hard work and fast pace of player of the match Claire Williams, saw her go on a run down the left wing, culminating in a cross which the keeper managed to make an initial save only for striker Jade McDermott to round of a good performance by pouncing onto the loose ball to volley into the net.
Final score
AEI GRAVESEND 3-0 Redhill Ladies
