United taste more glory at En­field

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

DEN­HAM United fol­lowed last week’s FA Women’s Cup win over Ip­swich Town Ladies by knock­ing En­field Ladies out of the County Cup on Sun­day.

Chon­telle Lawrence gave Den­ham a half-time lead, but En­field lev­elled late on to take the tie to penal­ties and af­ter Alissa Down, Jo Torr, He­len Capewell, Kim Pen­dred and Law­er­ence all net­ted for, keeper Lizzie Rose saved to take it to sud­den death, where Den­ham went on to win.

They will now host Charl­ton Ath­letic Ladies, who are cur­rently top of the league above them, in the quar­ter-fi­nals on Novem­ber 20. Be­fore that, they travel to Coven­try Ladies, who are in the league above, in the sec­ond round of the Women’s FA Pre­mier League Cup this Sun­day.

The re­serves, mean­while, made it a County Cup dou­ble by see­ing off En­field Town’s re­serves 4-0 thanks to Ellen Ward­law’s first goal in se­nior foot­ball, plus fur­ther strikes from Elisha Allen, Eva Ram­sey and Char­lie Leigh Dixon.

Mean­while, a Den­ham team made up of four se­niors and nine U16s won 3-0 in a friendly at Old Ac­to­ni­ans, with Ju­lia Thu­ruaf bag­ging a brace and Yas­min Gar­cia also on tar­get, while the U15s came from be­hind to beat pre­vi­ously un­beaten lead­ers Garston 3-2, thanks to a Ni­amh Reynolds dou­ble and a great free kick from skip­per Holly Symons.

Play­ing up an age group in the U15s County Cup did not bother the U14s, who knocked out Hack­ney Wick af­ter Claire Weiner scored the only goal of the game with eight min­utes re­main­ing. This made up for their 2-1 de­feat to Ruis­lip Rangers the pre­vi­ous day, in which Kaitlin Brown net­ted and El­lie Wright was player of the match.

Mille Conger­ton was un­for­tu­nate to have a goal dis­al­lowed in the U12s’ 1-0 de­feat against fel­low high-fliers Letch­worth Ea­gles, while the U11s Wild­cats beat Kew Park Rangers with goals from Madi­son Perry, El­lie Trigg, Paige Holie and Ruby Mc­Cul­loch, but the U11 Pu­mas lost to Cam­den, de­spite Phoebe Smith get­ting among the goals.
