YOUTH FOOT­BALL

CHAMPS: Che­sham United U14 girls THERE was dou­ble de­light for Che­sham United girls at the week­end when both their U12s and U14s wrapped up the league with dou­ble head­ers.

The U14s beat Bar­ton Rovers by the only goal of an evenly matched first game in which Bar­ton had chances but could not breach Erin McManus’ de­fence, while tire­less work from Holly Fitzger­ald at the other end fi­nally got just re­wards when she looped her shot over the keeper for the win­ner.

The sec­ond match saw a soft hand­ball de­ci­sion gift Bar­ton a penalty, but the kick hit the cross bar and Che­sham made the most of their let-off when Katie Bayles gob­bled up the re­bound af­ter a shot from Fitzger­ald was spilled. Neat work by Bayles and Mil­lie Boon then set up Aoife Han­ling for a sec­ond to se­cure the game and the ti­tle af­ter the break.

The U12s, mean­while, wrapped up their sil­ver­ware with an em­phatic 3-0 win over Great Hor­wood fol­low­ing a nail-bit­ing goal­less draw in the first game, in which Amelie Baker was player of the match.

Those honours went to two-goal hero Hannah War­ren in the sec­ond game, with Francesca Laine grab­bing the other goal.

On Satur­day, the U15s take cen­tre stage with their Com­bi­na­tion League Cup fi­nal against Cren­don Corinthi­ans at Chal­font St. Peter FC, kick­ing off at 10.30am.
