Che­sham cruise past Team So­lent in cup fi­nal

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

had a game plan and stuck to it, weath­er­ing a great start by the Hamp­shire side, who dom­i­nated the early pos­ses­sion and hit the post af­ter 15 min­utes.

But once Che­sham got into their stride, Chantelle O’Grady found Katie Squire, who skipped around the So­lent keeper to stroke home and give her side the lead against the run of play.

Che­sham tried to soak up pos­ses­sion and catch So­lent on the break, but were caught out when their op­po­nents nicked the ball on the left and swung in a great cross which was fired home for the equaliser.

On came Tash Smith to gi give more width, with Fras Fraser moving into the cent cen­tre and within five the changes hit the spot as Anna Im­rie found Squ Squire, who out­paced Sole So­lent’s left-back and wh whipped in an inch­per perfect cross for Fraser to h head Che­sham back in f front.

A As Che­sham gra grad­u­ally got on top aft af­ter the break, So So­lent’s frus­tra­tion sta started to show, gi giv­ing away a free ki kick which dead ball sp spe­cial­ist Laura Bar­ton curled in per­fectly for cap­tain Dawne Campbell to nod home.

With teenager Livvi Harris help­ing tighten things up at the back and Paula Lam­bert link­ing up su­perbly with Im­rie, So­lent were running out of ideas, and Sarah Hazel slid in player of the match Fraser to round the keeper and slot home her sec­ond and Che­sham’s fourth.

So­lent pulled back a con­so­la­tion late on to make it 4-1, but the day be­longed to Che­sham. The squad was Masella, Campbell, Im­rie, Tyas, Bar­ton, Glad­win, Smith, Lam­bert, Hazel, O’Grady, Harris, Squire, Fraser, Wil­liams, Burns and Kil­ley.

The pre­vi­ous day, Che­sham’s U13s won the Bucks Girls League Cup against a pre­vi­ously un­beaten MK City side, thanks to goals from Han­nah War­ren and Amelie Baker.

The squad was Ash­ton, Mun­cie, Howatt, Har­g­reaves, King, War­ren, Baker, Laine, Chowdhry, Shah, Woods, Adams and Bayles.
