Suffolk Girls & Womens Football League

Team :Gabby, Amy, Katie, Caitlin, Charlotte, Poppy, Emily, Maisie J, Eloise, Amelia, Hannah, Maizie V

Apologies for no notes on last week’s away match at Capel. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but was told the girls played really well and deserved more from the match.   The Seasidettes would also like to welcome Amelia to the team and wish her well for the season. Those that played have against her in previous seasons will know what a good player she is and what a good signing she is for the team.

The Goldstar Ground played host to Coplestonians FC for the girls first home game of the season.  The girls, clearly buoyed by last week’s performance, attacked Coplestonians right from the kick-off. A good through ball presented Eloise with the first chance of the match but unfortunately she was unable to convert. Amelia then produced a great tackle and run that enabled her to put a pass through for Caitlin to bear down on goal but the keeper produced a great save to deny her the opening goal.

The girls were putting so much pressure on Coplestonians that it was surely only a matter of time before they scored. Eloise smashed in another shot and was unlucky to see it graze both post and bar. Then the goal came  -  another well placed through ball saw Caitlin score. The girls were in confident mood today and went after more goals, the keeper produced another couple of great saves from Eloise and Caitlin hit the post but it wasn’t long before the second goal came. Amelia broke through from midfield and gave the keeper no chance with well struck shot, Several more chances were created but unfortunately no more were converted before the half ended.

Half-Time

Seasidettes  2  -  0  Coplestonians FC

The second half started much the same way as the first. The midfield of Amy and Poppy were cleaning up any Coplestonian attacks and Charlotte was offering attacking options with her desire to get forward a create chances. Goal number three soon came. Good link up play between Eloise and Amelia saw Eloise get her second of the match. The girls looked ruthless today and went in search of number four. A brave double save from the Coplestonians goalkeeper sadly saw her get injured and have to leave the field  -  a blow to Coplestonians because she was having a blinder. Emily then saw a long range shot clear the bar before a curling shot from Amelia hit the bar. Goal number four then came after sustained pressure saw the Seasidettes win several successive corners. From one, the ball broke to Emily, who standing just outside the goal area, produced a first time strike that saw the ball nestle in the back of the net  (sorry for the biased view, but it was a cracker). The girls were still not done though and went in search of more. Four became five as Caitlin got her second following great play from Charlotte. Poppy then set up Eloise for her second and the Seasidettes sixth. Caitlin was put through by Maizie V for number seven and her hatrick closely followed by Eloise claiming number eight for her hatrick.

A well-earned, quieter day for the defence of Hannah, Katie, Maisie J, Emily and Gabby today. Although the Seasidettes were predominately on the attack today, the defence looked solid and well organised allowing the attacking players time and space to create the chances.

WELL DONE GIRLS  -  You finally got the rewards your hard work and effort has deserved.  Well done also to the Coplestonian players for never letting their heads drop and playing their part in a highly entertaining match. All at Felixstowe wish your keeper well and hope she recovers from her injury soon.
