Grace hot on the heels of striker Vardy’s feat

YOUTH FOOT­BALL

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

WATCH out Jamie Vardy – Grace Nwoseh is the next hot shot on the block.

While Le­ices­ter’s Vardy matched the Premier League record for scor­ing in con­sec­u­tive matches on Satur­day, Nwoseh is hot on his heels, scor­ing in her sev­enth game in a row for Den­ham United Ladies U13s on Sun­day.

Her brace, as well as fur­ther strikes from El­lie Wright, Lau­ren Clarke and Mayze O’Ma­honey, earned a 5-0 win over Ben­geo Tigers, in which Lau­ren Clarke was named player of the match for a great per­for­mance in mid­field.

A spir­ited dis­play from an U12s side down to the bare bones saw them come from be­hind to edge past Hearts of Ted­dloth­ian Pan­thers 4-3, with goals from Mad­die Kirkby, Sa­van­nah Charles, Ab­bie Bar­rett and star girl Gra­cie Git­ten – her first for the club.

But a Grace Don­aghey hat-trick and a fine dis­play from Te­gan Con­dra was not enough to pre­vent the U11s go­ing down to Har­vesters.

Goals from Naomi Hickey and Alisha Ba­jwa, and su­perb per­for­mances from Holly Sy­mons and Niamh Reynolds, saw the U14s blow the ti­tle race wide open by beat­ing league lead­ers Garston 2-1, but the U15s lost their own clash with the league lead­ers, AFC Wim­ble­don, 6-4, de­spite goals from Jes­sica Stick­ley, Katit Ak­er­man, Kayleigh Curi­van and Anne Walsh, with Kodi Spencer star girl.

The first team, mean­while, com­fort­ably beat Bed­ford 4-0, thanks to a Nat Mur­ray dou­ble and other goals from Clarice Gould and Holleigh Marsh. SEAM­ERS Harry Pod­more and Tom Helm have both signed con­tract ex­ten­sions with Mid­dle­sex CCC.

Pod­more, 21, who has made 18 first team ap­pear­ances, hav­ing made List-A and Twenty20 de­buts in 2014, con­tin­ued his progress with five NatWest T20 Blast ap­pear­ances for Mid­dle­sex in 2015.

For the sec­ond eleven this year he picked up 42 Cham­pi­onship wick­ets, claimed three five wicket hauls and also hit a maiden SEC hun­dred and 116 not out against Es­sex at Bil­ler­icay.

Helm, also 21, has 11 first0team ap­pear­ances to his name, hav­ing made First­Class and List-A de­buts in 2013. Af­ter im­press­ing with seven wick­ets in Mid­dle­sex’s open­ing two first-class clashes of the sea­son, Helm had lim­ited op­por­tu­ni­ties this term af­ter be­ing side­lined with a long-term back in­jury.
