Harefield Gazette - - MOTORS -

DENHAM United se­niors’ first league game at The Den in three years, fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of their chang­ing rooms re­build, ended in a damp squib on Sun­day.

Denham were lead­ing 3-1 through a Re­becca French dou­ble and a Lau­ren Cox strike when the match was aban­doned on 76 min­utes fol­low­ing a head in­jury to an En­field player.

Else­where, An­nie Walsh marked her re­turn from a long spell out in­jured by crash­ing one in off the cross­bar from 30 yards out for the U16s, but her strike, plus a player of the match dis­play from debu­tant keeper Molly Her­ring­ton, were not enough to pre­vent a 4-1 de­feat to Kinja.

Amy Hold­craft was the hat-trick hero as the U15s came back from 3-0 down at half time to draw 4-4 with Wat­ford Hor­nets, with a Ni­cola Leys strike ac­tu­ally putting them 4-3 up and on course for an un­likely win un­til Wat­ford equalised at the death.

Melissa Asavoaie also hit a hat-trick, while Katie Gavin was on tar­get too, and an own goal com­pleted the rout as an U14s side, for whom Mad­die Kirkby was star player, tonked Bish­ops Stort­ford 5-0. De­spite that big win, they are look­ing for play­ers to strengthen their squad (con­tact Alissa Down on 07540 603 687).

Two early goals from Mia Al­men­dros, plus a Sa­van­nah Charles strike later on, saw the U13s beat Bed­well Rangers 3-1, with Ni­amh Wil­liams player of the match, while the sec­ond of Chloe Beck­with’s dou­ble proved to be the win­ner for the U12s against Berkham­sted Raiders Su­per­novas, with Manuella Gar­cia also net­ting in the 3-2 win and Grace Don­aghey named player of the match.
