Lit­tler scores win­ner as young­sters hold firm


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

NAOMI Lit­tler bagged the only goal of the game as Che­sham Ladies snatched a vic­tory at New For­est LFC on Sun­day.

Man­ager Andy Baker fielded a young team, with just a cou­ple of play­ers aged over 18, but Che­sham played the bet­ter foot­ball, and their back four were well dis­ci­plined and sti­fled most of the For­est at­tacks.

Che­sham piled on the pres­sure in the sec­ond half, but play in the fi­nal third is still very much a work in progress for the Bucks team.

How­ever, the dead­lock was bro­ken when Laura Bar­ton got hold of a long goal kick and slid in Lit­tler, who fin­ished well.

Over in the Thames Val­ley Women’s League, Che­sham’s ac­tual U18 team picked up an 8-2 vic­tory at AFC Warfield.

Pia Davis helped her­self to six goals, while Sophia Lin­g­ley and Sarah Jack­son grabbed one each.

In the Bucks Girls League, Amy Cul­loty tucked away a hat­trick as the U15s beat Penn & Tylers Green 6-0, with Ni­amph Eu­man, Lidia Nieder­tubbesingLopez and Ge­or­gia Howe also on the score­sheet, but the U14s went down by a sin­gle goal to Chal­font.

Amelie Baker was another six­goal hero as the U12s beat Wa­ter Ea­ton 10-2, with Han­nah War­ren net­ting a dou­ble and Mol­lie Mun­cie and Aye­sha Mil­ner also on tar­get, while the U10s played at a fes­ti­val in Ayles­bury and won all their matches against More­tonville, Cren­don and Chal­font.

Mean­while, Che­sham are still look­ing for an ex­pe­ri­enced U15 and se­nior goal­keeper, plus girls of any abil­ity from school years two to six. Any­one in­ter­ested should visit
