Barking Ladies Weekend Results
Barking Ladies 4 Brooke House 2Barking travelled across West London hoping to build on the point gained two weeks ago against Stowmarket. Barking had to make to without regular keeper Michelle Bridgeman but Ang Robinson deputised.
Barking got off to a strong start; within two minutes Nicola Moore raced into the box but fired just over the bar 4 minutes later. Lisa Bravati put a cross into Nicole Manning but the keeper came out of goal and saved with her feet. Nicola Carty picked up a through ball on the 11th and raced forward on goal drawing the keeper out but the effort went the wrong side of the post.
Barking took the lead in the 24th when Carty's cross found Becky Garner whose hooked shot went over the keeper and into the net. Brooke House drew level in the 37th minute as a shot bounced in the net off the far post. The remainder of the first half saw both sides miss clear-cut chances.
The second half began with subs Kelly Stock and Vicki Staples for Nicola Moore and Lou Rodwell. Within 3 minutes a snap shot went in past Ang Robinson giving Barking the worst possible start to the 2nd half. Barking hit back on the 62nd minute when Nicola Carty converted Becky Garners low cross to equalize. The goal of the match came on the 78th minute when Becky Garner won a 50/50 ball that ran loose and Nicola Carty smashed the ball from all of 30 yards into the top left hand corner. Barking nearly saw Brooke House equal the score but Kirsty McGrath who came on after Claire Brooks was carried off with a calf injury, clears off the line after Ang Robinson was beaten.
Barking scored the final goal on the 86th minute when Lisa Brivati's corner picked out Nicole Manning and she powered home a header. Player/Manager Lisa Brivati said after the game. ' I am delighted with today's result we all played well today and the result reflects this.'

City avenge earlier defeat
First TeamGirls and Womens Football

Chelmsford City 1 Colchester United 0
Chelmsford City entertained Colchester United at Barnston on Sunday, looking to avenge an earlier defeat in the away fixture earlier this season. Chelmsford started slowly allowing Colchester a free shot on goal within the first 2 minutes of the match, only to see the City keeper make a fingertip save. This was an early wake up call for City, who responded by battling for every ball. It was obvious from the start that this was not going to be a free flowing match, with most of the game being played in the middle third of the field.
Colchester were playing the better football, and producing opening after opening down the left hand side, but fortunately the City right back Paula Thompson was equal to the challenge, producing a string of perfectly timed tackles. City then started to gain the upper hand and took the lead after 20 minutes through a neatly produced opening for Natalie Madlin to score. The first half was to end on a low for City when their central defender was shown the red card after a fracas.
City started the second half well, but were to come under increasing pressure from Colchester, who were looking for an equalizer and make the most of their numerical advantage. Fortunately for City the Colchester strikers squandered chance after chance, without testing the deputising City keeper.
City continued to battle hard, with Paula Drane holding the ball up well as the lone striker, and Sharon Brownlie on the left producing some great crosses to boost the City attack. This was by no means a pretty match to watch, but nevertheless produced some exciting moments as the Clarets finished with all three points.
Chelmsford City: Smith, Marshall, Thompson, Harman, Bell, Wells, Brownlie, Madlin (Wake), Drane, ridings and Binks.
Unused sub: Mooney.
This Sunday City are at home to Basildon Utd in the League Cup 2nd Round at Barnston AFC, High Easter Road kick off 1.30pm.
Chelmsford City Reserves 7 Rochford Town Sports 1
City were looking to extend their unbeaten run to ten games and started brightly, playing neat passing football but were unable to convert several good chances. It was the visitors though who opened the scoring with a well taken breakaway goal. City remained calm and soon equalised through Angela McPhee and just before half time, a Helen Alder strike gave City an interval lead.
The second half saw Chelmsford come out in determined mood and two quick strikes from McPhee and debutant Emma Wake put them firmly in the driving seat. Rochford continued to threaten sporadically but City were now playing superb football with midfielder, Anna Cornish covering every corner of the pitch and City’s defence dealing comfortably with the visitors counter-attacks.
Wake rounded off a quality personal performance with a cheeky second goal and McPhee completed her sixth hat-trick of the campaign. The biggest cheer of the day was reserved for Rachel Brett who netted her sides 7th and her first goal of the season.
City Reserves: Smith, Barnard, Threadgold (Wheeler), G. McPhee, Vernon, Wake (Cornish), Alder, Roberts, Brett, A. McPhee and Cornish.

Mark Hall 1 Chelmsford City 4
Rosie Gliddon had an early shot on goal saved and then opened the scoring a minute later following a left foot shot into the roof of the net from the edge of the area. City relaxed and looked to be well in control with Rosie Gliddon adding her second within the first fifteen minutes.
Mark Hall began to get more involved in the game and nearly reduced the arrears when a Mark Hall dribbled through the defence only to see her shot magnificently saved by the City keeper Gabby Gunn from close range. City were offered a reprieve when Jo Gigg scored soon after, following a goal-mouth scramble ensuring City held a 3-0 lead at half time.
The second half saw the home side come out full of enthusiasm and pulled a goal back minutes after the restart when a run through City’s central defence resulted in Mark Hall slipping the ball past the City keeper into the corned of the net. Mark Hall continued to pressure City but strong tackling in the mid-field and defensive areas saw City restrict their opponents to very few chances. Mark Hall had another what seemed like a clear run at goal, but was well tackled by Celia Catchpole.
City suffered a blow when their captain, Rosie Gliddon retired injured and minutes later secured the points when forward Hannah Kinsella rounded three players before seeing her shot parried by the keeper. Alice MacInnes was swiftly on to the rebound to neatly tuck the ball home with her left foot. City managed to hold to the same scoreline for the last ten minutes to make the final score 4-1 in their favour.
Chelmsford City: Alice MacInnes, Celia Catchpole, Jessica Easteal, Jessie Cassie, Rosie Gliddon, Chloe Argent, Tara Britton, Jo Gigg, Leanne Patten, Hannah Kinesella and Gabby Gunn.

Chelmsford City 4 Roydon Royals 1
Chelmsford City competed in a demanding match against a physical Roydon side, and ran out worthy 4-1 winners. City were the more assertive team throughout the entire game, and despite difficult pitch conditions, they made several good attacking moves in the first half, deserving to be more than just one goal ahead at half-time. A superb ball in from Amber Thomson set up Emma Sharpe to kick-start the second half, but Roydon then began to attack, and managed to pull back a goal. However, Chelmsford continued to battle, and two more fine goals secured their justified win.
City goalscorers were: Emma Sharpe (3) and Ashleigh Harding.

Chelmsford City 15 Harlow Town 0Chelmsford did their goal difference the world of good with a 15 goal salvo against a depleted Harlow side who could only field nine players. City still put on a superb display of passing football and took an early 4th minute lead following a well struck shot from the edge of the box by Lucy Garrett.
Five minutes later, Emma Wake and Emma Wells combined with Sharon Brownlie converting Wells cross to make it 2-0 while City's third goal was a fine solo effort by the rejuvenated Emma Ridings. With her back to goal she flicked the ball onto her knee before volleying on the turn into the top corner on 25 mins.
Seven minutes later, Ridings intercepted a goal kick and immediately set up Paula Drane who made no mistake and Drane notched her second when Wells did well down the right flank once again. Her cross into the box found Drane who turned her marker before powering the ball past the keeper for City's 5th. City's 6th goal came after Ridings' diagonal run into the box saw the ball put into her own net by an unfortunate defender under immense pressure.
Ridings made it 7-0 just after the restart following good work by Wake who laid the ball into the path of Ridings who made no mistake. Natalie Madlin came off the bench and immediately caused problems with her youthful running closing down the Harlow defence and played a great ball down the right for Wells who netted her first of the game with a low drive which flew in at the near post.
Drane netted City's 9th on 52 mins after Madlin again laid back the perfect ball before City made it double figures on 75 mins. Debutant Layla Richards saw her shot from the edge of the box spilled by the keeper with Kerri Binks on hand to stab the ball home.
Madlin and Drane combined with the latter having a shot rebound of the post only for Wells to follow up and net goal number 11. Ridings chipped the ball perfectly into the box where Binks' saw her shot blocked and Drane pounced for City's 12th.
On 83 mins Wells crossed from the right where Drane was on hand to nip in before Wake to net and moments later, Wake made a surging run forward before providing a pass to Drane who in turn fed Madlin who netted into the bottom corner.
City's final goal was netted by their stand-in keeper, joint Manager Vanessa Smith, who went forward for a last minute corner and was on hand to prod the ball home.
Chelmsford City: Smith, Marshall (Richards), Harman (Madlin), Binks, Bell, Wells, Brownlie, Wake, Drane, Ridings and Garrett.
This Sunday City will face a much stiffer test as they are away to second placed Saffron Walden Town.
Rochford Town Sports 2
Chelmsford City Reserves 4City's second team had a potentially tricky fixture on Sunday against stern opposition, Rochford hoping to avenge a defeat earlier in the season.
Despite the muddy pitch and a strong wind, both sides contributed to an exciting first half which saw good football played by both teams. City had the strong wind at their backs and consequently most of the play was in the Rochford half but City needed to establish a lead at the turnaround especially as the home side were looking dangerous on the break.
The deadlock was eventually broken with two City goals late in the half from the excellent Jasmine Wheeler and strike partner Angela McPhee.
Rochford hit back straight after the interval with a near post effort following a corner and City's long unbeaten run was beginning to look under threat. However, City's midfield of Rachel Brett, Anna Cornish, Helen Alder and Lucy Groom were running themselves into the ground to prevent the home side finding an equaliser.
Midway through the half, Wheeler netted her second to restore City's two goal advantage but the City supporters relief was short lived as Rochford responded with an opportunist effort to set up a thrilling last quarter of an hour.
With ten minutes remaining City were awarded a penalty after a foul in the box which was coolly converted by Alder and this settled the match in what had been an excellent game given the conditions.
Chelmsford City Reserves: Smith, Threadgold, Groom (Roberts), Brett, Wheeler, Vernon, Alder, Lackenby, G. McPhee, Cornish and A. McPhee. Unused subs: Ruck and Barnard.
This Sunday City Reserves entertain Southend United at Barnston AFC, High Easter Road, Barnston, kick off 2pm. Why not come along and support the ladies, admission to the ground is free.
Basildon Town Ladies 3-1 Rochford Town Ladies
Basildon Town 3-1 Rochford TownThe consistent positive and brave attitude of this young Basildon team is a credit to the coach and manager as for the first time this season they have beaten the top team in the league and made another step forward in their development.
Basildon Town ladies have the best defensive record in league division two and any visitor to there home ground have there work cut out if they want the win, as it is clear to see that this is the toughest team to beat and you have to be on your very best to take anything away as Harlow athletic, Basildon united, Crowborough athletic and Dagenham and Redbrigde will tell you that Basildon don’t give goals away.
Rochford came to the BAE Systems ground in Basildon top of the table and full of confidence after winning recent games very convincingly and the great form gave no signs of stopping as they pinned Basildon back for most of the first half and a set piece opened the scoring for the visitors around the 25 minute mark 23 yard free kick dipped violently to go in despite the efforts of the Basildon goal keeper to push it over the bar.
After this Basildon had some space to play as Rochford tried to settle, Basildon went for them and seven minutes before the half Basildon got level with a diagonal cross which seemed to confuse the Rochford defence giving Basildon time to control the ball and set up the splitting pass to give the “one on one” and goal!, maybe against the run of play but the move on it’s own deserved a goal, 1-1 at half time.
The second half brought three changes to Basildon and a change of formation to go for it! The young team lined up to go for the win and forced Rochford to work hard and move the ball quicker than the first half, the break came for Basildon midway through the second half when again a diagonal cross cause confusion and the result was a simple tap in from three yards.
The fourth goal of the game and Basildon’s third was a well worked passing move that broke down, as it did the two Basildon forwards were court in an off side position but the resulting forward pass was short into a midfielder who run through and past the two Basildon forwards who just stood there and did not move till the player and ball had passed them and the resulting second “one on one” of the game had the same outcome 3-1 to Basildon town.
Basildon have reclaimed third place in division two of the Essex County Woman’s League and are one point off the leading team.
